Principles of Practice No Quick Fix One reason we call it Integral Life Practice is because there’s no quick fix. If there were, we’d be recommending it here. One of the primary hard-won lessons of the last half-century and the human potential movement is that weekend workshops wear off! The same is true for weeklong or monthlong intensives. A lasting, committed, daily practice is the only way to produce sustained transformation. The quickest, shortest path to lasting change is a lifestyle that embraces some kind of ILP, including at least the 4 Core Modules.

The Universal (and Particular) Adventure of Waking Up The adventure of awakening is among the most universal of human dramas. It takes every possible form, and thus it’s an utterly creative, unpredictable, and unprogrammable process. The river’s twists and whitewater sometime include passages such as the “dark night of the soul,” or gates through which no one passes except on their knees. It can be experienced as an ordeal of transformation, a process of “blossoming,” or as a romance with God. The principles of ILP are remarkably clear and simple, putting practice within the reach of almost anyone.

What if we applied the same cross-training principle—which holds that gains in one area will accelerate gains in others—across all levels and dimensions of our being? Well, that’s the idea here. Preliminary research suggests, for instance, that a meditator who also lifts weights will progress faster in meditation than one who doesn’t—and similarly, a weightlifter who meditates will progress faster in weightlifting. We can call this phenomenon Integral cross-training synergy. The 4 Core Modules simultaneously activate several powerful synergies, between body and mind, spirit and body, shadow (the unconscious) and spirit.
