Secrets of Leading InterPlay Raleigh 2020

Ginny Going, Ken Miller, and Natalie Abdou

Raleigh, NC

May 14-16, 2020, Thursday 7 pm – Saturday 4:00 pm

The Secrets of Leading InterPlay is a multi-day workshop and a core component of the InterPlay Leader Training Program that leads to becoming a certified InterPlay leader. It is open to those who have completed or are in the process of completing the InterPlay Life Practice Program and have enrolled in the InterPlay Leader Training Program.

The Secrets of Leading provides an overview of the InterPlay® system and covers the underlying structure and philosophy of InterPlay. How are the forms taught? How do they work together? What is the ultimate outcome or effect of using InterPlay forms? How do you decide which forms to use at what times? How do you deal with people you find challenging? The workshop includes presentation, interaction, and play.

Leaders
Ginny Going
As a recovering serious person, I consider InterPlay my 12-step program and my life practice for having more ease and grace. I've worn a variety of vocational hats in my life and currently describe myself as a community artist, bodyspirit mentor and InterPlay leader. I love offering people the "big body" tools of InterPlay for telling their stories, especially people on the margins of our communities. I am also passionate about embodied spirituality, engaging people in prayer and worship forms that include and honor the body through movement, stories and song. With my partner and husband Tom Henderson, I teach and lead retreats in a variety of settings.
Ken Miller
Ken Miller was introduced to InterPlay by Tom Henderson and Ginny Going in 2002. Ken accepted their invitation to join Off the Deep End Ensemble as a musician in the group. Ken created beautiful keyboard solos as well as sensitive accompaniment for the group’s dance and vocal improvisations. Since retiring in 2009, he has been leading InterPlay for beginners through seasoned InterPlayers. He is known for his masterful storytelling—and for his irrepressible humor. Ken is also the creator of the Interplay form "The Banana Song".
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.
