Create more ease, community, grace, energy, and joy in all parts of your life. Uncover the deep resources of your “body wisdom.” Explore new life possibilities in a community that says “yes!” to you.

The Life Practice Program will lead you to deep places in your life—the places that feed, nourish, and energize you. This practice creates powerful connections with others in a community that is open and accepting.

The Washington DC InterPlay® Life Practice Program includes four weekend sessions from Friday evening to Sunday afternoon once a month from February through May. It begins with a Secrets of InterPlay retreat.

In each of the four monthly sessions we learn about InterPlay Tools and deepen our practice of the InterPlay Forms. Additionally, each participant will have three opportunities to be mentored individually. The learning and playing are very experiential. In between the meetings, you will be reading and writing reflections to deepen and strengthen your experience.

Kaira Jewel Lingo and Laura McManamy will be assisting Kate Amoss in leading this program.
