It is designed to articulate all the muscle groups and joints in the body and allow for deep rhythmic breathing, relaxation, transformational imaging and meditation. The ITP Kata is one of the core practices ITP has to offer. It embodies the definition of practice itself; it is an activity that, for all its benefits, is done on a regular basis for its own sake, as a path of practice upon which you walk.
Disc one of The ITP Kata is an instructional version of the Kata, led by Barry Robbins and designed for beginners. Led by Pam Kramer, disc two is for more experienced Kata practitioners. Both CDs are designed for those who are familiar with the ITP Kata. For more detailed and visual instruction, consider purchasing The Life We Are Given and the Tao of Practice DVD.

Athletes have long known that their pursuit of excellence can lead to the unforgettable altered state of consciousness known as “The Zone”. This unification of body, mind and spirit can paradoxically lead to peak performance as well as inner peace. Coaches and sports psychologists now include techniques from esoteric realms of energy medicine and consciousness research in order to awaken these highest human potentials.
The contributing authors of this book – an ex-NFL star, a Harvard psychiatrist, the coach of an Olympic champion, an extreme skiing world titleist – will explain how these insights can help you develop your inner and outer skills, whether you’re a weekend amateur or an elite athlete.
The approaches range from Energy Psychology and Zen to the Parallel Mode Process and mindfulness. Specific applications to baseball, track, sculling, skiing, tennis and more are included, as are invited commentaries from some of the world’s leading experts in physical and spiritual transformation.

"With this powerful book, sport becomes epiphany, a mind cracking, soul buffeting, life enlarging realization that brings participants into resonance with the Great Game Itself, the one that the Cosmos is playing."—Jean Houston Ph.D, futurist, author, A Passion for the Possible
"With this book, we now have a complete work on consciousness and sport available for athletes. Hopefully others will see this field as an avenue for great human liberation."—Phil Shinnick PhD, US Olympian, world record holder (long jump)

Keynote Lectures from the 2010 ITPI Conference
Superheroes aren’t born. They’re made. That’s the good news from Jeffrey J. Kripal, professor of religious studies at Rice University and author of Authors of the Impossible: The Paranormal and the Sacred from the University of Chicago Press. In these four keynote lectures recorded at our 2010 conference, Jeff explains how in every life, there are magical moments when the world resembles a movie or a novel, and if you can “wake up” to the story unfolding, you can control its direction — and achieve the impossible. To support his thesis, Jeff talks about authors, artists, and spiritual practitioners — including the late George Leonard of ITP — who seized creative control of their lives and works. Michael Murphy, co-founder of ITP and of the Esalen Institute, joins Jeff to discuss how each of us can recognize and embrace our own paranormal powers, just as the superheroes of popular culture embrace theirs.
Listen and learn how to harness your powers to create a brighter, more fulfilling future.
