If you are between the ages of 18 and 32, you may be interested in joining the fifth year of a program that teaches InterPlay's "sneaky deep" way of building artistic skill, leadership ability and strong community. You'll leave with creative, embodied InterPlay tools and techniques used around the world in peacemaking, prisons, classrooms, theaters, homes, places of worship, and health care. Plus you get to play, visit Bay Area redwoods, social change organizations and get incredible support for your path.
Explore with the InterPlay founders and other community artists about ways to help people play with difficult issues, listen and share the wisdom of their body, and tell stories in ways that are direct, personal, and transformational.
The program takes place Monday through Friday over two weeks with some evening programming including a concert by the InterPlay performing company "WING IT!"

Cynthia, co-founder of InterPlay with Phil Porter, is dedicated totransformative wisdom practices that inherently integrate body and soul.

A featured speaker on the Body Intelligence Summit, her books include What the Body Wants, Having It All: Body, Mind, Heart & Spirit Together Again at Last, Dance: A Sacred Art: Discovering the Joy of Movement as Spiritual Practice, and Chasing the Dance of Life: A Faith Journey, the story of how attuning to the wisdom of the body led her to be a dancing minister, a professor of dance in a seminary and then radicalized her relationship to her faith.
