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.
Wonder can mean many things to many of us. Explore what Professor Loriliai Biernacki has written about the meaning and role of wonder in excerpts drawn from her recent book, The Matter of Wonder: Abhinavagupta’s Panentheism and New Materialism by Loriliai Biernacki, Professor, Department of Religious Studies, University of Colorado at Boulder. In the excerpts below, Hindu scholar Biernacki features the worldview of Abhinavagupta, a philosopher and mystic born in 950 CE in Kashmir. His ancient philosophical writings on panentheism are closely aligned with the worldview that informs and enlivens ITP.
The worldview of ITP is based primarily on the extraordinary nature of love. In this exercise, experience the power of love for your whole being and for all of life and notice how you feel. As the spark of the divine wakes up inside, explore how this loving energy has the power to heal and support your transformation, bringing alive your unique imprint into the world. The practice, led by ITP Mastery teacher Max Gaenslen, demonstrates the significance of loving yourself as a portal to loving others and all of life.
