All are welcome at InterPlay on Tuesday nights in Evanston. InterPlay is an easy to learn creative process that invites participants to express themselves through storytelling, movement and vocalization. Through well-established methods of play participants can simply have fun and discover new things. No prior InterPlay experience is necessary.
A wide variety of people participate in InterPlay worldwide. Whether you think of yourself as less creative or more creative, chances are you'll discover through InterPlay that you are more creative than you think. InterPlay instructors strive to meet people where they are at. When you're at an InterPlay event, you can choose your own level of participation, including simply observing the class.

Jeff Breting got hooked on InterPlay in early 2010 when he attended a retreat in North Carolina.
Soon afterward that first retreat he took the InterPlay Life Practice Program in Minneapolis with InterPlay master teacher CathyAnn Beaty. After completing the five weekend retreats of the Life Practice Program, he has played at several InterPlay retreats throughout the country.
Jeff was also fortunate to have a 6-week immersion at the InterPlay headquarters in California. While he was there, he received instruction from InterPlay co-founders Phil Porter and Cynthia-Winton Henry and from many other highly trained instructors.
Jeff has been a regular participant of ongoing events in his home Chicago Interplay community. He keeps coming back because he finds InterPlay to be a lot of fun. He also enjoys how it enables him to discover and develop his own voice (in the big sense of the word). In addition, he is fascinated by how it opens up many avenues for people to connect with one another.
To give back, he decided that he wanted to become a Certified InterPlay leader in order to lead public InterPlay sessions. As of Summer 2015, Jeff has attained his leader certification and has co-led and led 50 public InterPlay sessions in the Chicago area.
In his leading, Jeff desires to bring the collective wisdom of all his instructors to session participants. Jeff also wants to help people of all backgrounds broaden the ways they express themselves, create more ease in their lives and learn new ways of being in relationship with others.
Jeff has a keen interest in the application of InterPlay to interpersonal, small group, and organizational communication. He is also very interested in sharing InterPlay with people who are seeking experiences and tools for releasing excess energy, reducing anxious feelings and becoming more assertive.
