For the Love of ITP 2021

Honoring Barry Robbins

Wednesday, May 5, 2021 from 4:30 - 6:30 PM PDT
Online Event via Zoom

Presented by ITP International

"Expect nothing, be ready for anything," George Leonard said. With the pandemic still with us, ITPI sends heartfelt wishes for your good health and wellbeing and extend a warm welcome to attend our annual For the Love celebration and benefit online. 
At our 8th annual For the Love of ITP, we will honor Barry Robbins for his tremendous contributions in helping build and nurture ITP to grow and evolve. Beginning in 1997 as the first Coordinator of Community ITP, Barry's belief in the power of the practice motivated him to help form multiple ITP groups across the country, train group leaders, co-lead numerous workshops with George Leonard at Esalen Institute and serve as ITPI vice president and Board member to this day. 

Collaborating with a small team in 2008, Barry was instrumental in helping shape the 10-year ITP Mastery program, continuing in his role as ITP Mastery teacher, member of the ITP teaching community and as co-leader of ITP San Francisco. His leadership of the ITPI Golf in the Kingdom fundraising event has stimulated hundreds of golfers and sports enthusiasts to experience the extraordinary on the greens and in everyday life - and also supported ITPI to thrive. We celebrate Barry's steadfast dedication to integral practice, community and his endeavors to create a sustainable world.

More than ever, we need to nurture and celebrate together as a community and welcome all to participate, contribute what you can or just be with us. Come share the experience of this uplifting gathering and celebration. What you can expect is laughter, music, dance and great spirit for all! 

Barry will be presented with the George and Annie Leonard Service Award for his profound dedication to ITP, ITP International and the wide world.

We encourage members and friends outside the SF Bay Area to share the experience of this uplifting gathering and celebration!
