CTP maintains an inside out approach to transformation. The diagram conveys how our work begins at home in the roots, our practices are shared with community through programmatic offerings, which join together the three sectors of our networking campaign in the tree canopy.

CTP maintains an inside out approach to transformation. The diagram conveys how our work begins at home in the roots, our practices are shared with community through programmatic offerings, which join together the three sectors of our networking campaign in the tree canopy.

CTP carries out this mission through three kinds of activity:

  1. A residential community

  2. A spiritual, resilience-building and social change programming

  3. A three-sector networking campaign.

Within each area, we strive to unite:

  1. The inner work of personal transformation with

  2. The outer project of transitioning to a just and sustainable culture. 

The synthesis of these two forms the third category and focus of CTP's work: 

      3. Transformational change.

Through the work of the strategic planning process of 2016-17, the relationship between these three areas of activity and these three categories gained greater clarity using the metaphor of a tree.

The CTP Homestead

The Center for Transformational Practice is located on a two acre parcel of land that stretches between the railroad tracks and the Connecticut River, just outside of downtown White River Junction, Vermont. The once neglected house and land is on its way to becoming a permaculture gardening and sustainable technology demonstration site.

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. CTP resides between the athletic fields of Ratcliffe Park and a newly installed public walking path that leads to the River.
