Join InterPlay Co-Founders Cynthia & Phil!

Year’s End: Return to the Parallel Universe

On Online Event
Phil Porter and Cynthia Winton-Henry


Sat & Sun, Dec 30 & 31, 2023 • 10 am – 5 pm Pacific Time both days

Zoom link for the Parallel Universe. If you haven't registered yet, just show up!

For several years, we have offered an online end-of-year event where we can escape to a Parallel Universe, where we can create what we want for ourselves and our communities for the year to come.

Let's return there again! Let’s gather in a place where we can play together with what has happened and imagine how we might shape a new future. We will get to celebrate the countercultural values we hold as people of respect, integrity, and creativity! InterPlay co-founders Cynthia Winton-Henry and Phil Porter will lead this online event.

What are the stories you want to lift up? What has your year been like? What do you want to reclaim, or celebrate, or create for yourself?

This year, we meet right before the end of the year—Saturday & Sunday, December 30 & 31, 2023.

Come move, tell stories, claim your voice, connect, and be still to bring in a hopeful 2024. Spontaneity is rewarded with affirmation, creativity is what we all do naturally, laughter fits right alongside tears, and art is how we love!

Open to both new and advanced InterPlayers and everyone in between! Come for all or part of it.


This event is a $225 value, but pay what you can! Come for all or just a part of the event. You can also just attend the community performance event at the end as a witness or participant. (Suggested donation $25).
