The International Institute of Transformational Arts Mission
INTITA (International Institute for Transformational Arts), led by Jan Hutchins – an accomplished leader, politician (former mayor of Los Gatos), journalist, and yogi, and Olga Kostrova – technology entrepreneur, social innovator, transformational practitioner and world citizen, is a research, advisory and program development group focused on personal and interpersonal transformation and its implications for individuals, families and our culture, including global business and politics.
It’s a volunteer based organization, a crossroads for people, projects and programs to connect and support expertise in transformational human technologies.
INTITA (International Institute for Transformational Arts) is headquartered in Silicon Valley with its first center in Los Gatos and does interdisciplinary research and program development, coordinating and reporting findings in transformational human technologies from around the world to effect transformation for both individuals and organiza
INTITA pursues its mission in a number of ways, all built on our core belief in the power of collaboration. In cooperation with other organizations and practitioners we organize educational and experiential programs and co-funding and co-marketing opportunities. We bring together practitioners and relevant organizations to work collaboratively on research projects and community events that integrate the most successful practices.
Findings are taught through community programs, often via social as well as adventure travel events. Even though our events are designed around entertaining themes for broader consumption, they always focus on exercises that consider various aspects of anatomy, physiology, neuroscience, psycho-emotional training, energy healing and other transformational methods.
Be inspired by a unique husband and wife team, transformational artists whose charisma and compassion illuminate lives.
