Ginny Going
As a recovering serious person, I consider InterPlay my 12-step program and my life practice for having more ease and grace. I've worn a variety of vocational hats in my life and currently describe myself as a community artist, bodyspirit mentor and InterPlay leader. I love offering people the "big body" tools of InterPlay for telling their stories, especially people on the margins of our communities. I am also passionate about embodied spirituality, engaging people in prayer and worship forms that include and honor the body through movement, stories and song. With my partner and husband Tom Henderson, I teach and lead retreats in a variety of settings.
