An InterPlay BodySpirit Celebration offers a time to gather and honor our individual and collective body wisdom, respond to spirit in the moment and welcome diverse expressions of faith and spiritual paths. First, we will connect with ourselves, each other, and spirit in our midst through led movement, word-sharing, and vocal warm-up and play. Then, we will co-create a body-centered celebration by weaving together led and impromptu offerings. No InterPlay experience necessary. Welcome!
Also this weekend--Saturday March 1st: Moving Words: an InterPlay Poetry Playshop 11:00am - 3:30pm. All events at same location. See events pages for details.
