Cooperation is essential for solving the momentous challenges we face in the world and in our daily lives.
Cooperation lives in our bodies, our bones, all living beings, the Earth. We spot cooperation in fish swimming downstream, a team prepping for a launch, a family packing up for a holiday. Cooperation blends the potentials of all engaged to produce a shared goal and reach desired results together.
We feel the magic when cooperation is working and feel its absence when it's not. What keeps us from working toward a shared purpose we all hold dear? Cooperating with others takes clear intention, awareness, skill and practice - and starts from within. Cooperation is an inside job!
About this training
The Ki of Cooperation is a live virtual training to help people worldwide develop the inner capacities for successful cooperation.

Now more than ever, we need greater cooperation for us to survive and thrive. The Ki of Cooperation training cultivates the human capacity for harmony.

Some background here
Our Ki of Cooperation teams have taken a close look at cooperation. Our 2-year study culminated in the creation of The Ki of Cooperation Guidebook and Training, an interweaving of foundational ITP concepts and practices with influences from the martial art of Aikido, Non Violent Communication and Appreciative Inquiry.
Members of the original team included: Sally Mahé, Marcia Beauchamp, Shu Liu, Charlotte Hatch and Pam Kramer.
In 2020, our International Ki team delivered a pilot training to test our approach for building confidence and competencies for cooperation across boundaries - the program's overall aim. 16 people from 6 different countries participated. Their positive feedback and key insights and suggestions inspired the next generation of the Ki of Cooperation we are excited to launch this fall.
The training is co-facilitated by ITP teachers Charlotte Hatch, Roger Marsh and Pam Kramer (USA), in collaboration with the other international team members, Ann Horn (Sweden), Isabelle Goldie (France), Armando Cardenas (Mexico).
What's Ki got to do with it?
The power of the word Ki, defined as vital life energy, moves us forward to change, grow and evolve as individuals and as a human family. Watching water is a good way to understand how ki, or energy, moves. When two rivers travel from separate directions and meet, they blend. Each river current contributes to creating a larger, more powerful flow in a new direction. Ki is what urges us to grow our capacity for cooperation, the process of working together towards a common goal, and creating a world that works for all.
