The Tree Model

CTP carries out its 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.
