:


Embodying 40 Years of the Esalen Experience


through the use of meditative movement, vision- ing exercises, powerful affirmations, and the sup- port of a warm-hearted community. In this expe- riential workshop, you’ll discover your infinite capacity for creative evolution, get a clearer pic- ture of your true nature and take home a daily practice for ongoing integration of body, mind, heart, and soul. Integral Transformative Practice (ITP), the creation of Esalen Institute co-founder Michael Murphy and President Emeritus George Leonard, is a synthesis of their forty years of expe- rience at Esalen. ITP is a well-researched program that cultivates all aspects of your being and is designed to increase your vitality, fulfillment, and joy. Presented by senior ITP teachers Barry Robbins and Pam Kramer, this workshop uses Leonard Energy Training (LET) exercises to boost your resilience and to help you solve everyday challenges by tapping into your body’s vital flow of energy. You will learn practices designed for living life to the fullest and discover new capaci- ties that you may have only dreamed were possi- ble. In this workshop, you’ll learn how to:


• Practice the ITP Kata, a series of integrative, fluid movements that include relaxation, visualization and meditation


• Create affirmations for manifesting vital and positive changes in your life


• Access your body’s wisdom through LET


• Master highly effective and peaceful communication skills with yourself and others


• Discover the power of intentionality, deep relaxation, and presence


The workshop involves physical movement but it is not strenuous. All that’s needed is a generous heart and a willingness to participate.
