SpiritPlay has become a staple of Seattle’s InterPlay offerings! Now in our sixteenth year, we have developed a wonderful community of faith and foolishness. If you'd like to explore how the spontaneity of InterPlay interfaces with the tradition of Christianity - come on in! We'll be diving into the lectionary, exploring sacred stories, dancing through the cycle of seasons, loosening our tongues, singing our souls and improvising in prayer. Together, let’s open the doors to an embodied church!
Cost: $175 (paid in full) or $25 per class
