An evolutionary path decades in the making.

CANCELED! Creative, Spiritual Intelligence for Times of Change

InterPlay's Approach to Unlock the Full Wisdom of the Body
Cynthia Winton-Henry

Oakland, CA

May 5th 10-4

Though its a painful time in history there is an equally potent collective movement at play. Some call it evolutionary. InterPlay is part of it. InterPlay uses active, creative practices to unlock the full wisdom of the body to keep joy, hope, and mental health in tact through tough times.

Cynthia Winton-Henry, InterPlay cofounder, believes that spiritual intelligence is the sum of all our our Intelligences: kinesthetic, emotional, spatial, cognitive etc. and that it's time to put them all together and to link to the Greater Intelligence of the planet and Universe. When we access the birthright intelligences of movement, voice, words, stillness, and reflection we build pathways of resilience instead of roadblocks.

Learn the arts of noticing, witnessing, and how to engage both human struggle and giftedness using art based practices, body-centered insights, lots of affirmation, and honor for the everyday wisdom of each body.
