Phil is one of the founders of InterPlay. He is a teacher, performer, writer, and organizer. With Cynthia Winton-Henry he is the co-founder of WING IT! Performance Ensemble, and has written several books, some in collaboration with Cynthia, including Having It All: Body, Mind, Heart & Spirit Together Again at Last and The Slightly Mad Rantings of a Body Intellectual Part One. Phil is particularly interested in the use of InterPlay in organizational life, and believes that InterPlay can be a powerful tool to create communities of diversity and peace.
Cynthia Winton-Henry, co-founder of InterPlay with Phil Porter, has researched "what the body wants" in the arts, in jails, shelters, slums, hospitals, churches, businesses, classrooms, and doctoral programs in theology and the arts and multicultural education. She has developed somatic curriculums to address racism, leadership for the Earth, with an eye to supporting millennials. She's been a featured speaker on the Body Intelligence Summit online series and a keynoter at many conferences. Cynthia is the author of 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, , on how attuning to the wisdom of the body radicalized her relationship to her faith and worldview. Currently writing on "Ensoulment," she coaches leaders seeking spiritual intelligence for our time at Mystic Tech: see cynthiawinton-henry.com.
