Sally Kempton“Integral Life Practice offers a finely honed distillation of some of the most effective and universal practices from the great wisdom traditions, at the same time presenting a context for practice that is both soaring and sensible. True to its title, it takes seriously the human need for fully balanced development, for depth as well as breadth, for psychological as well as spiritual development, for softness and toughness, for ethics and bold experimentation. Beautifully written, laid out in accessible modules, the book is truly an on-and-off-the-mat guide to 21st-century practice, arising from that place in us which stands in the best of tradition, yet rides the cutting edge.”

“This book is truly a gift to humanity. It contains simple yet essential practices for those looking to take the leap of faith into the next stage of human consciousness and evolution. It is written intelligently yet it’s tone is warm, friendly, and easy-to understand. The team of writers challenge and engage us not just to think about ways to improve our lives, but to actually practice those ways, to do and be those ways. The writers give us a dynamic and effective tool to actualize our true and widest and highest potentials…. The book distills a variety of powerful techniques and information from ancient traditions and the latest cutting-edge technologies into one short, sweet, and potent read. I especially liked the examples they give on how to start your own Integral Life Practice (ILP). This book is a great addition to the Integral Life Practice Starter Kit It expands on many of the products included in the kit.” – Zapt Pupil

“I love this book. Of course being integral, it covers all bases in a profound way. It’s very practical with lots of great ways to begin practice…. One of those rare books which I always like to have on hand where ever I go – whether I want to re-read a module, or engage in one of the practices, it’s a great manual.” – Daniel Jebreel

“With the use of four authors there is a balance of materials that covers both the theoretical and practical application of an integral life practice. I extremely pleased to see new material on the fourth element of our essence called the shadow. In addition, the one minute exercises within section gave me an opportunity to apply the material…. I have been reading Ken Wilber materials for about 10 years and this book is the bridge that is taking me from the interior world of thoughts and ideas to the exterior world of relationships and organizations.” – Michael Mcahon

“well done. ken wilber’s work gets an excellent rendering here. comprehensive without dumbing down some very complex material, this book shares some of the specifics of integral theory brought to life. enjoyed it—left me feeling enthusiastic to practice the various ‘modules’ to experience the benefits.” – irishtao
