Online Program – Tuesday, October 22nd to Tuesday, December 10th, 2019

Sweet InterPlay Millennial Family, our upcoming online program InterPlay Recharge: Play for Life & Leading is a chance to deepen the ways that the transformational elements of InterPlay can benefit your life. You will receive mentoring, guidance and the ongoing support of this online community. Make time and space for yourself and celebrate your body wisdom. We will play with our birthright practices of sound, song, storytelling, movement, dance, and stillness…yet online! For 2019 graduates of the Art & Social Change Program, this offering will be required for those who want to enroll in the Leader Training Program.

Dive into the practices of InterPlay with the eye on deepening your practice for life and leading. This is a focused weekly gathering that will offer you a transformational experience for facilitating InterPlay, as well as incorporating the InterPlay tools and forms into your daily life. Come experience the magical elements of focus sessions. Each participant will get 3 one-on-one focus sessions that will transform your life by transforming your practice. These sessions, which are scheduled separately from the online gatherings, are co-created with you by Natty, Agnotti, or a local leader.

In this 8-week online program you will have the chance to:

-Recharge your playing with the forms and tools that you got to delve into during the Art & Social Change program
-Discover ways in which to weave InterPlay magic into your day-to-day life
-Learn to use the tools as a way to engage with your own personal life matter
-Get deeper into your own InterPlay groove, which can support you if you are interested in beginning your InterPlay Leader’s training
-Dedicate time each week to your body-spirit well-being through affirmative, easeful, incremental InterPlay

The program also includes 3 focus sessions per person: these sessions are one-on-one personalized sessions where you will be guided, both with freedom and structure, in using the various tools and forms to engage with and play with some aspect of your life (hopes, questions, challenges, curiosities).

For who? You…
This program is open to all Art & Social Change Millennial grads and can simply be a chance to reconnect to the body wisdom space that we shared during the program AND can also act as a bridge for those who are interested in the InterPlay leadership training certification. You don’t need to necessarily know this in advance, you can join us and see what feels right in relation to leader training later on. If you do know that you are interested in leader training then please do join us as this piece is a prerequisite and will prepare you for Secrets of Leading and the Teacher Practicum.

We will take place once a week from Tuesday, October 22nd-December 10th, 2019.

Natalie Abdou
I have been on a life-long journey of curiosity and creativity, and have spent the last 10+ years connecting and collaborating with diverse communities, in North America and the Middle East, by co-creating learning environments that are founded upon shared values of diversity, love, respect and self-empowerment - embracing a vision of solidarity, social justice and change from the inside-out. I weave in elements of embodied wisdom, Theatre of the Oppressed and other visual/movement/story arts into my practice and see/feel the arts as portals for personal and collective transformation, providing space for our souls to dance, breathe, heal and unleash the deep wisdom that resides within. That is why my heart exploded with resonance and childlike joy when I came into connection with Interplay in 2015 - since then I have had the gift of mentorship and leadership within the Arts & Social Change program, of mentoring alongside Cathy Ann in the Life Practice Program, and co-creating with Interplay POC community as we explore and better understand the ways in which this diverse unique group body plays. I feel deep gratitude for the way in which InterPlay has danced its way into my life bringing with it so many quirks and magic.
