About the Authors:

Christina Grote is the current board chair of ITP International and has practiced Integral Transformative Practice for twenty years. She has designed and taught ITP workshops and planned numerous conferences with friend, collaborator, and ITPI president Pamela Kramer. 

Christina grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area and made the unusual choice to move to Columbus, Ohio in the mid 1970’s following four years of international travel, eventually landing in the hill town of McCleod Ganj, India, the seat of the Dalai Lama. 
A life-long interest in natural healing and spiritual practices prompted her to become a licensed massage therapist in 1988, practicing many types of body and energy work, and the therapeutic use of sound, music, and color. A lover of the arts and the outdoors, she created two large functional art pieces made of concrete, glass, and handmade tile that are situated in public parks in Central Ohio. She also enjoys hiking, paddle boarding, playing music and spending time with friends and family in California and Ohio.

Pamela Kramer Pam Kramer is President of ITP International, a nonprofit organization that stewards ITP and the work of its founders, George Leonard and Michael Murphy. Pam is 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, and helping to form ITP groups and bring integral principles and practices to the workplace. Pam is a performance consultant and executive coach with thirty years of consulting experience for organizations and entrepreneurs in the San Francisco Bay Area.
