The International Transpersonal Association (ITA) was formed in 1978 for the purposes
of promoting education and research in transpersonal subjects, as well as sponsoring
global conferences for the international transpersonal community. The association was
subsequently dissolved in 2004, but is now in the process of being reactivated and revitalized.
As background for this development, this paper reviews the history of ITA including its
international conferences and noteworthy presenters, the organization’s definition, strategies,
and specific goals, and details of its contemporary revival.
