Create more ease, community, grace, energy, and joy in all parts of your life; Uncover the deep resources of your “body wisdom.” Explore new life possibilities in a community that says “yes!” to you. Join the 400plus people already involved in the Life Practice Program.

The Life Practice Program will lead you to deep places in your life—the places that feed, nourish, and energize. It creates powerful connections with others in a community that is open and accepting.

The Seattle InterPlay® Life Practice Program includes monthly group sessions and a Secrets of InterPlay Retreat. In each of the 8 monthly sessions we learn about and embody one or two of the eight InterPlay Body Wisdom Tools, and deepen our practice of the InterPlay forms. This occurs experientially, through playing with the forms, presentations, discussion and focus sessions. In between meetings, reading and writing reflection and individual time with the leaders deepen and strengthen your experience.

(Course meets the qualifications for 55 hours of continuing education credit for MFT’s and/or LCSW’s as required by the California Board of Behavioral Sciences.)

Information meetings about the Seattle Life Practice Program on May 10 or June 14.

Leaders
Sharie Bowman
Sharie Bowman, MA is a Mental Health Counselor and Regional InterPlay Leader. She has been leading InterPlay since 2004 and has co-led six Life Practice Programs. She is particularly intrigued with the potential InterPlay has to support people to create healthier lives by following the wisdom of their bodies and taking the lead in their own lives. In her private practice she regularly weaves InterPlay’s life-enhancing forms and philosophies to help individuals and families thrive. For over 20 years, she has been exploring the wisdom of the body through a variety of modalities including InterPlay, Authentic Movement, Core-Energetics, and Biodynamic Psychotherapy.
Stephen Condit
After decades in higher education and technology, Steve rediscovered life-below-the-neck through movement and the embodied voice practices of Gabrielle Roth's 5Rhythms® and Chloe Goodchild’s The Naked Voice. His explorations have also included taking Aikido with his son and studying embodied leadership with Richard Strozzi-Heckler. But all this was just a prelude to InterPlay. Steve says “for me, discovering InterPlay was like coming home. InterPlay combines my major life interests, movement, voice, storytelling, and stillness and has opened new, easier paths for my personal and spiritual growth, all in the context of play. It has provided balance to my intellectual and serious approach to life and restored my joy and creativity.” Steve has co-facilitated Secrets of InterPlay and the Life Practice so that others may rediscover the joy of play and learn that transformation does not have to involve struggle.
Harriet Platts
Harriet Platts, MS, MDiv, MA is committed to nurturing relationships and spaces for curiosity, play, and reflection! She trained as an IP leader in Seattle with Krista Gemmell Harris and Rev. Laurie Rudel, in 2003 – 2004. As a process facilitator, she supported a group of core Seattle InterPlay leaders through a time of regional leadership transition, 2003 – 2006. She co-led the Seattle Life Practice program in 2013-2014, with Sharie Bowman and Steve Condit. Harriet brings a depth of life experience as a chaplain (Protestant), group facilitator, artist, and teacher. By applying the InterPlay forms in diverse settings like team meetings and faith-based retreats, she continues to witness unfolding gifts of connection to the natural landscape of body, voice and spirit. She is a QUEST-ioning soul, always venturing aloud with her ‘wonderings,’ and generously offers an attentive, steadied, vivid presence with whomever she’s connected.
