The Center for Transformational Practice


The Center for Transformational Practice is a nonprofit organization and small residential community working to support the region's transition to a just and sustainable culture through advancing inner transformation as the foundation for positive social change. To do this, we offer programming, such as retreats and workshops and build networks in our region, particularly among nonprofit directors, faith leaders and activists.

What have we done for you lately?

Year two of our three-year strategic plan.

The emergence of the New Era will require the endeavors of enormous numbers of well-coordinated men and women, who, by working as dedicated missionaries, like the followers of Buddha or Gandhi, can propagate the ideologies of the era to come.
— Shriram Sharma Acharya


The CTP Homestead

The Center for Transformational Practice is located on a two acre parcel of land nestled between the railroad tracks, the Connecticut River, the Ratcliffe Park and a newly installed public walking path, all just outside of downtown of White River Junction, Vermont. The once neglected house and land is on its way to becoming a permaculture garden including 260 linear feet of hugel mounds, a free-for-the-picking orchard and berry patch, 7,000 square feet of annual garden and three labyrinths for walking meditation.
