May 5th 10-4

Though its a painful time in history there is an equally potent collective movement at play. Some call it evolutionary. InterPlay is part of it.

Want a way to increase spirit and wisdom at work, school, or in community? InterPlay offers an inspired approach that honors diverse traditions and no tradition by focusing on the common ground, our bodies and the Earth's Body. When we focus on our embodied practices doors open rather than close.

InterPlay uses active, creative practices to unlock the full wisdom of the body to keep joy, hope, and mental health in tact through times of change. We teach and learn the art of noticing, witnessing, and how to engage our human struggle and giftedness using art based practices, body-centered insights, lots of affirmation, and honor for the everyday wisdom of each body.

Cynthia Winton-Henry, InterPlay cofounder, believes that spiritual intelligence is the sum of all our our Intelligences: kinesthetic, emotional, spatial, cognitive etc." and that it's time to put them all together and link to the Greater Intelligence of the planet and Universe. When we access and combine our birthright intelligences of movement, voice, words, stillness, and reflection we create pathways of resilience instead of roadblocks.Come delight in a way to name and explore an evolutionary path.
