In this three-part series, Michael Murphy will trace the emergence of ITP as the foundational practice rooted in the worldview outlined in his seminal work, The Future of the Body. Created by Michael and human potential pioneer George Leonard in 1992, ITP embraces the co-evolution of the whole person, awakening our many parts – body, mind, heart and soul – over the span of a lifetime. An evolving practice for people worldwide, ITP can be practiced on one’s own, with family and friends or with an ITP community of practitioners.
“We believe that by the very nature of things, each of us carries a spark of divinity in every cell and that we have the potential to manifest powers of body, mind, heart and soul beyond our present ability to imagine.”
- George Leonard & Michael Murphy, The Life we are Given
