In the six-session small group Bible study DVD, The Life You’ve Always Wanted, John Ortberg guides you and your group through the spiritual disciplines and teaches you how they can transform your spiritual life.
What does true spiritual life really look like? And what keeps you from living it? What can you do to pursue it?
If you’re tired of the status quo – if you suspect there’s more to Christianity than what you’ve experienced – John Ortberg invites you to join him on a road to transformation and spiritual vigor that anyone can take.
Cultivate new intimacy and confidence in prayer. Discover the freedom of secrecy. Taste the benefits of slowing life’s frenetic pace. Learn how to be guided by the Holy Spirit…and much more.
As in a marathon, the secret lied not in trying hard, but in training consistently. Proven by followers of Jesus over the centuries, the spiritual disciplines are exercises that strengthen your endurance race on the road to growth.

What I would say though, is you don't need a participant's guide for all the participants. Just buy one DVD, and one guide for the leader to use in guiding the discussion time. If the participants want more, have them buy the actual book, which is much more in-depth.
I had a few group members who would read the book chapters ahead of time, then the DVD at the group meeting was basically supplemental. I had other group members who didn't want to read the book, so the DVD and discussion at the group meeting were all they got.
As the group leader, I would recommend you buy this DVD, one of the participant guides mentioned above (for the leader to use), and encourage your group members to each buy the book for themselves. The Life You've Always Wanted: Spiritual Disciplines for Ordinary People The material of all it was good, prompted great discussions, and people connected with the material, and John's relatable style.
