Leaders
Nancy Pfaltzgraf
Nancy Pfaltzgraf has been joyfully leading InterPlay classes and retreats in local and national settings since 2006. Having discovered InterPlay and the Life Practice Program helped her discover ease and joy in her professional life as the pastor of progressive Christian congregations. Her experience as an RN and a Hospice Chaplain has also given her a unique perspective on the way InterPlay can relieve stress and empower people in the helping professions to live and work with more grace and ease. Since leaving pastoral ministry it has been her delight to continue to offer her gifts through Body Wisdom - Deep Play groups for helping professionals, Retreats and Untensives, InterPlay Life Practice programs, Online Body Wisdom Tools classes, online classes and untentsives focusing on the Move to Greatness wisdom and an Online Interfaith Dance Chapel. Nancy holds coaching certification using the FEBI® [Focused Energy Balance Inventory] and Appreciative Inquiry and delights in both one-to-one and group Soul Coaching. Although her home base is in the Chicagoland area, her mastery of online communication forms allows her to serve people wherever they are. All this allows her to fulfill her life mission to "lead with love, follow with trust and dance with joy with those ready to step into the life-giving rhythms of grace".,
Cynthia Winton-Henry
Cynthia Winton-Henry, co-founder of InterPlay with Phil Porter, has researched "what the body wants" in the arts, in jails, shelters, slums, hospitals, churches, businesses, classrooms, doctoral programs in theology and the arts, and in multicultural education. She develops somatic curriculums to address racism, leadership for the Earth, and spiritual intelligence with an eye to supporting millennials. A featured speaker on the Body Intelligence Summit and a keynoter at conferences, Cynthia is the author of What the Body Wants, Having It All: Body, Mind, Heart & Spirit Together Again at Last; Dance - A Sacred Art: Discovering the Joy of Movement as Spiritual Practice; and Chasing the Dance of Life: A Faith Journey. Currently writing on Body Wisdom and Social Justice and on "Ensoulment," she coaches leaders seeking spiritual intelligence for our time at cynthiawinton-henry.com.
Jane Siarny
Jane Siarny, MFA is dedicated to uplifting the human spirit through creativity, community building, and body-wise practices. For me, InterPlay opens the door to an integrated spiritual practice that allows for freedom and growth. Throughout my 30 years leading and performing InterPlay, I have found it to be the one practice where I can express all of myself; body, mind, heart and spirit. I bring added experiences to my teaching from a lifelong dance career, yoga teaching, love of poetry, A capella singing, and working with children. I am the InterPlay Life Practice Program Coordinator, a Life Practice Program Leader since 1999, and a Mentor in the InterPlay Leader Training Program. My story can be found in MOVE: What the Body Wants by InterPlay co-creators Cynthia Winton-Henry with Phil Porter.
Ruth Schowalter
Ruth Schowalter, visionary folk artist, communications educator and creativity coach, started The Daily Creative Practice to insure that her own art, dreams, and creative ideas get priority. Within InterPlay, an improvisational system that unlocks the wisdom of the body, she found all the tools she needed to put grace and an ethic of play at the center of life.
Monisha Mittal
Monisha is a mystic, a writer and recovering over-achiever. For the last 2 years she has been leading Divine Revelations Dance Chapel under Cynthia Winton-Hentry's Hidden Monastery Chapel. Early in her career, working in rural India and north Philadelphia, she noticed her joy at helping women and children find their individual expression and voice. More than twenty years later, InterPlay came running to meet her when she left her full-time corporate job. Inspired by the freedom, connection and laughter InterPlay has brought to her life and to those it touches, she enjoys connecting people to their Divine power and presence for greater expression and abundance in the world. Monisha is a certified Sacred Depths coach and leads the Hidden Monastery Dance Chapel every Tuesday. Contact her about experiencing your own Holy Play Dates.
Rehana Tejpar
Marla Durden
Marla came to InterPlay at the end of 2016 and has never stopped playing. She immediately began performing and was certified as a leader in May 2021. Marla is an alchemist, artist, energy shaman and coach who uses her gifts to create experiences that support personal empowerment, healing and transformation.
