What Are “Life Practices?”
The term “Life Practices” was developed by American philosopher Ken Wilber to describe major practices in your life that you can take to the bank. They are rock-solid, and merit a lifetime of integration and attention, because they are time-tested to be of the highest value to a deeply meaningful life.
The founders of the (in)famous Esalen Institute in Big Sur, California learned an important lesson: no matter how great the workshop, it wears off a short while later. The life-changing insights gained during the weekend seminar become less vivid and usable by the middle of the next week. Even the yearlong retreat wears off by the following spring.
Sustained transformation requires sustained practice. So integrating complementary Life Practices is about cultivating Ways of Being — healthy, growth-producing ways that we take on and keep doing (and refining) for the rest of our lives.
When I (David Rainoshek) coach my clients, I always use this understanding as an overall toolkit idea for the many things we are integrating to improve health. It is a CONTAINER for the practices most important – tried and true – that we can use for the rest of our life.
In this section, we are going to offer some Life Practices to greatly support Juice Feasting that across the board over the years, which been very well received by students of Juice Feasting.
Throughout the 92-Day Juice Feasting Program, we discuss dozens of Life Practices to Integrate in the domains of health, relationships, mental and emotional development, spiritual growth, environmental impact, and of course nutritional life practices.
