The Six Spiritual Practices are what love looks like in action. They are a new formulation of a very old set of teachings and disciplines. If you apply them regularly, you will have more energy and vitality, more focus, more compassion, more clarity, and more joy. And these effects will ripple outward into your marriage and family, your parenting, your workplace, your friendships, your neighborhood, and city.  These practices will change your life and transform your community. They will connect you and the people around you to Purpose, the experience of belonging to something infinitely greater than ourselves.

Like physical training, however, spiritual growth doesn’t happen instantaneously in a moment of illumination. It requires patience, repetition, and hard work. The Six Spiritual Practices are a set of skills to be developed – not a collection of tenets you must believe in or agree to.
