Body, mind, and heart interplay to inform our lives, for sure. But the soul speaks and lives through each of these aspects. This is the brilliance of the integral model we engage with ITP.
What messages come through the mind? Learn how one practitioner notices the transformation of activity through his mind.
Josh Brahinsky is a Psychological Anthropologist, working over the past few years in Anthropology at Stanford University, Psychology at UC Berkeley, and now in Transcultural Psychiatry at McGill University. He joined a team of researchers to examine ITP and its effect on its practitioners. This project took him beyond academia.
Putting together all aspects of our integral being is a practice itself. Conscious, embodied integration of our many parts reinforces wholeness, balance, and integrity—much of what ITP promises for practitioners. Rather than focusing awareness on one aspect of ourselves, such as the heart with its vast array of feelings, the staying current practice prompts us to pay equal attention to all aspects—the totality of who we are – to mine our deeper truths for self-understanding, growth, and mindful action.
Messages from the heart can show up in everyday places. Thanks to her ITP practice, Charlotte Hatch took notice of her heart's messages.
An ITP practice can bring surprising and gratifying physical changes. Walking 10 to 15 miles a day sounds like a challenge to a body at any age. Lucy Piper took herself to northwestern Spain to commemorate her 80th birthday on an ancient trail.
We are all seekers and we are all sages. In the space of our minds, we are both. Are you a seeker today? Are you seeking an answer or a next step? Experience this practice led by researcher Michael Lifshitz. On May 10, Michael and fellow researcher Josh Brahinsky, joined us for a Seekers and Sages session. They talked about how we use the imagination in our lives and our interconnectedness to one another.
ITP sees human beings as essential and integral components for the world’s positive evolutionary advance. As we connect with and cultivate the Divine inside each and every one of us, little by little, we bring more and more of that Divine into our own lives and out into the world. Roger Marsh, ITP’s Director of Training and Consulting, shares his thoughts about the ITP worldview.
