Each ITP newsletter spotlights a member of the ITP community so that they can share some insight into their practice and the role ITP plays in their life. This newsletter, with its theme of “Community and Leadership,” shines a light on Pam Kramer. Pam is the president of ITP International, an ITP Mastery teacher, is on the faculty of Esalen Institute, and presents workshops at venues in the US and abroad. She is engaged in training ITP teachers, helping to form ITP groups and bringing integral principles and practices to the workplace. Pam was the honoree of the “For the Love of ITP” event on May 2.
A key component of ITP focuses on cultivating an ongoing practice. Regular practice is seen as essential for achieving lasting transformation and growth. Practice allows us to develop and refine our skills, acquire new knowledge, form healthy habits, achieve mastery, and build resilience. Through physical, mental or spiritual practice, consistency and intentionality have a transformative impact on our lives.
