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 six weekend sessions generally on Friday evenings 7–9 pm and Saturdays 9:30 am – 5:30 pm once a month on these dates: Jan 27 (Saturday only), Feb 16–17, Mar 23–24, Apr 27–28, June 1–2 and Sept 21–22. It begins with a Secrets of InterPlay retreat Dec 1–3, 2017.

In each of the 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 will lead assisted by Laura McManamy.

An information session will be held on Thursday,October 26 at 7 pm at Seekers Church (address below.) Join Kaira Jewel to learn more about the program and ask any questions you might have.
