4 days of deep play and leadership wisdom

InterPlay Leaders Gathering 2020

Open to all Life Practice and Leader Training participants and grads
Phil Porter and Cynthia Winton-Henry

Racine, WI

July 29-August 2, 2020 • Wednesday dinner–Sunday lunch (Board meeting, beginning with dinner on Monday July 27-29)

Save the Date for some for deep and satisfying play at the Dekoven Retreat Center, a beautiful spot on Lake Michigan, near Racine. Cynthia and Phil join others with years of InterPlay experience. The wisdom in the InterPlay community of leaders runs deep.

As we celebrate 30 years of InterPlay, our commitment and actions for racial equity and transformation, and inspired, intergenerational community, there is plenty of room to bring your own ideas for workshops to be set up on the spot. Have a chance to organize conversations with other leaders about InterPlay issues that move you. Get new skills for education, spirituality, racial equity and transformation, art-making and leading your life. Discover new forms! Get met in your glory, humanity, artistry, and body wisdom.

Lots of opportunities to play, create, perform, connect, converse, eat and relax. And laugh!

This event is open to all Life Practice Program and Leader Training Program grads as well as those currently taking part in either program (or who took part in earlier versions of either program.)

Charming and comfortable rooms and three meals a day that you don’t have to cook.

We will coordinate some transportation as we are able.
