I hope this message finds each of you and your loved ones safe and healthy!
Today, more than ever, I am needing to feel grounded. This feeling is getting harder and harder to find and so I look to, and sometimes carry around, one item in my life that I came upon at the beach – a heart shaped rock (a woman standing close by on the beach had the nerve to ask me if I was going to keep the rock!). When I saw the rock at my feet, I immediately felt my grandmother’s presence and a sense of calm washed over me. Seeing and feeling the rock now, helps me to find a little more ground under my feet.
Maybe you have something in your life you look to in order to center yourself. I’d like to offer up ITGA as another tool to use to bring some stability to your ever-changing chaotic worlds. You are not in this hard work alone and we are actively bringing together practitioners and leaders who are in the thick of things to talk about ways they are navigating today’s challenges. Please join your fellow peers in ITGA’s Connects and Courageous Conversation

Please register for any of these important sessions and we encourage you to share with any and all who could benefit. Additionally, if you have ideas for future topics or would like to participate/lead/facilitate a conversation, please email Beth Bagwell (
