This year’s annual Leaders Gathering will be held online. This year’s Gathering will be cheaper, easier to get to, and will allow a wider range of folks to attend. You can pick and choose the time slots that work best for you and match your “Zoom attention span.”

This event is open to all Life Practice Program and Leader Training Program grads as well as those currently taking part in either program (or who took part in earlier versions of either program). Art & Social Change grads are also welcome to attend.


Register by June 30 and get $25 off!


Tuition is $275 if you register by June 30 and $300 after that. Reduced tuition is available as well as payment plans. Contact Lucia@interplay.org for financial assistance and/or to set up a payment plan.

Leaders who offer a workshop will receive an additional $50 off tuition if you submit a workshop by July 7. No guarantees that we will be able to accommodate proposals after that date.

We will have whole group sessions, opportunities to move together in large and small groups, a whole range of informative, interesting, and playful workshops, and wonderful opportunities to see old friends and make new ones.

Sessions will be scheduled in a way to accommodate most US times zones and also provide a bit of overlap with time zones that work for participants in other countries.
