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".,

Jane Siarny
Jane Siarny 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 dance career and yoga teaching I have found InterPlay to be the one practice where I can express all of myself; body, mind, heart and spirit. The Online Dance Chapel is one of the best ways for me to consistently share the transformative power of InterPlay. Jane also is the InterPlay Life Practice Program Coordinator, has led numerous Life Practice groups since 1999, and is a Mentor & Facilitator in the InterPlay Leader Training Program. Jane’s 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. Early in her career, working in rural India and north Philadelphia, she found joy 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 brings to those it touches, she supports creative writing, personal awareness and growth, and spiritual connection with InterPlay. Monisha is a certified Sacred Depths coach and leads the Hidden Monastery Dance Chapel every Friday.
Rehana Tejpar
Greer Dokmanovic
Greer Hudson Dokmanovic is a facilitator of InterPlay and a Minister in the Uniting Church in Australia. She says, "I am passionate about embodied spirituality - finding ways for people to feel at home in their own bodies, to play with spiritual expression, and to connect to themselves, others, and to that which is both deep within and beyond (some may use the name God - the Divine - Spirit...). Over the last year I have been facilitating a new offering which I call Embody. Using the InterPlay forms and tools, we have been intentionally making space for playful, embodied, authentic spirituality, which is open to all expressions of faith, spirit and religion. This has been a great joy and I am excited about how this might continue to grow." Greer participated in the Art and Social Change program in 2011 at InterPlayce. Back home in Australia she completed the Life Practice Program, the InterPlay Leader Training, and more recently the Life Practice Program for Spiritual Leaders. Greer has co-led a Life Practice Program and hosted 3 SummerPlay play-shops in her new home town of Brunswick Heads, in the Northern Rivers of NSW.

Bilha is a long-time practitioner of Insight Mindful Meditation (IM), and has been teaching IM along with Buddhist practices and philosophies for over a decade. 

Bilha’s journey with theatre, drama, improvisation, and IM practices allow her to explore life’s present moment in its kaleidoscopic forms of expression. The integration of Dharma, drama and the creative play is Bilha’s guiding passion and contribution to her teachings. It is her path to the soulful life we all aspire to live. 

”InterPlay moves me to communicate what I feel with myself and others by improvising my presence through words, sound, movement, connection and stillness.” -Bilha Birman-Rivlin
