Dancing our humanity, hilarity, humility, holiness & hope!
Betsey Beckman

Seattle, WA

Tuesday Mornings once a month / 9:30 - 11:45 a.m. / Oct. 10, Nov. 14, Dec. 19, Jan. 16, Feb. 13, March 12, April 9, May 14

SpiritPlay has become a staple of Seattle’s InterPlay offerings! Now in our 23rd year, we have developed a wonderful community of faith and foolishness. This monthly series is for those grounded in Christianity who long for the spontaneity of InterPlay to help us navigate the wild and whacky, sometimes rocky, humble & holy journey of our lives. We'll be diving into the lectionary, exploring sacred stories, dancing through the cycle of seasons, loosening our tongues, singing our souls, and improvising in prayer. Calling all angels– let’s dance, play and pray!

Cost: $25 per class.
