"Integral Life Practice will help you build the healthy foundation from which you can wake up to your transcendent nature or Big Mind. Western aspirants have long needed a universal practice manual that wisely draws upon ancient traditions and modern science and psychology. Now we have it--an inspiring, straightforward guide for living a truly harmonious, awakened life."--Zen Master Dennis Genpo Merzel, author of Big Mind, Big Heart: Finding Your Way "Integral Life Practice is a masterpiece guide of grounded, intelligent, self-transforming wisdom integrating the insights of all the great traditions of truth."--Caroline Myss, author of Anatomy of the Spirit and Entering the Castle "This book makes Ken Wilber's ideas come alive. It spells out how to apply Integral philosophy to everyday life by working with body, mind, spirit, and the deeper psychological aspects of ourselves. Integral Life Practice presents a useful map of one's existential condition leading toward the attainment of the highest states of consciousness."--Traleg Kyabgon Rinpoche "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."--Swami Sally Kempton, author of The Heart of Meditation: Pathways to a Deeper Experience "Integral Life Practice brings the integral system from the mind to doable action in life. Here is a treasure of integral Upaya."--Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi, past holder of the World Wisdom Chair of Naropa University "Integral Life Practice represents a particular milestone. It gives a lucid and easy to understand summary of the Integral thought-system, without dumbing it down--no mean feat. What's more, it describes in an engaging and practical way what to do in order to live from this elegant and inclusive worldview. If you want a clear and easy-to-follow map for waking up, read this book."--Bill Harris, Director, Centerpointe Research Institute and creator of Holosync Meditation Technology "Here we learn, through integral wisdom and disciplines, how to be freer and more fully authentic by ironing out the peaks of higher consciousness development into every nook and cranny of daily life. This is the secret of the integral life: transcending while including, and being there while getting there every single step of the way. Get ready to train your mind, open your heart, and awaken to your true universal Self."--Lama Surya Das, author of Awakening the Buddha Within: Tibetan Wisdom for the Western Word and founder of the Dzogchen Meditation Centers "What if we could draw from the best of the world's ancient contemplative traditions as well as contemporary psychological and somatic therapies, and weld them into a powerful program for transforming our lives? Now we can, and Integral Life Practice is a happy result of this possibility."--Roger Walsh MD, PhD, University of California, author of Essential Spirituality: The Seven Central Practices
