"Listen, whatever it is you try to do with your life, nothing will ever dazzle you like the dreams of your body...," writes Mary Oliver in her poem, "Humpbacks."Whether we are day dreaming, night dreaming, or dreaming up the possibilities for our lives, our dreams connect us to the larger view. Anything can happen in a dream. Let's play with dream stuff together in Atlanta, the home of Martin Luther King, where you can visit his memorial at the MLK Center and reflect on his life and dreams he had for us all. Join Atlanta InterPlay leaders, Jennifer Denning, Christine Gautreaux and Ruth Schowalter for a dreamy weekend of play. Un "tense," unwind, un "do." An Untensive is a multiple-day retreat that will gently immerse you in the easy-body practices of InterPlay's 25-year-old system. Create more connection and ease in your life! You will find new access to your stories, movement and voice. This is the easiest way to experience the powerful integration of mind, body, heart and spirit. It is also the quickest way to community connection. $100-$175 (sliding scale) for the entire weekend. Please mail your deposit of $50 by October 1, 2015, to Jennifer Denning at 1441 Deerwood Drive, Decatur, Georgia, 30030. Please contact Christine Nichols Gautreaux to find out about the few available homestays that are available.

Cost: $100-$175 sliding scale, please pay what you can afford
