Unlock the wisdom of your body!
  • Have more fun!
  • Decrease stress and increase ease.
  • Make wiser, more grounded decisions.

The InterPlay Life Practice Program is an active, creative way to change your life and change your world. Immerse yourself in the system of InterPlay—ideas and practices that can move you from where you are to where you would like to be.

You will be meeting regularly over a period of time with a group of fellow InterPlayers. You may use this supportive, affirming community to help you shape your life in ways that are best for you. You will get individual attention from the program leaders who will help you identify your personal desires and intentions.

Although some previous experience with InterPlay is encouraged, there are no prerequisites for taking part in the InterPlay Life Practice Program.

Elements of the Life Practice Program

The Secrets of InterPlay, a multiple-day retreat where you will be immersed in the InterPlay philosophy and practice, may be taken at anytime or location.

A series of 8 Saturdays with your Life Practice Program group for play, presentation, discernment, and interaction, where you will have a chance to explore new creative possibilities in a supportive community.

Three focus sessions during which you receive personal support from the program leaders to get more of what you want.

Reading and writing assignments which will help you apply InterPlay insights to your own life.

A Self-Study of several of the elements of the InterPlay system that will give you a more in-depth understanding of how InterPlay works.

Anyone who has previously completed the Life Practice Program may repeat it at a reduced tuition. Based on InterPlay’s commitments to build transformational communities of practice, people of color, millennials, full-time artist-activists, and undergraduate and graduate/professional students are eligible for the $1000 repeaters rate. .
