183: The Practices Behind the Process


What is the glue that holds the REALIFE Process® together and keeps it going? That’s exactly what we’re talking about in today’s episode as we learn about the spiritual practices that form the foundation of the Process.

You’ll learn:

  • The eight key practices that I use in my own REALIFE and how to incorporate them in your own
  • How REALIFE change is possible and happens over time
  • The importance of starting small by adding one practice at a time
  • How each spiritual practice connects with the components of the REALIFE Process®

Plus, I’m sharing some additional resources that can help you develop your own Modern Day Rule of Life™ through key spiritual practices. If you’re ready to pursue change that will last, today’s episode will help you incorporate rhythms for sustainable growth.
