Meg MacLeod

Meg MacLeod has been leading InterPlay classes and workshops since 1998: in the USA, the Netherlands, Scotland, Germany and Switzerland, in on-going classes, school teachers trainings, camp counselors, university dance and drama students, and at birthdays community celebrations, and conferences. She has directed and performed in numerous choreographed and InterPlay (improvisational) concerts.

Earlier years.
As a school teacher she regularly directed performances starring the children or brought her musician friends to her school to perform for the kids. In the mid- late-80s as an artist-in-residence, she developed and solo-performed five interactive concerts using music, stories and dance/movement to teach social studies and ecology in 24 US states, Germany and the UK.

As a community activist for Walkable Communities in the 90s she produced several highly successful conferences and two organizations until becoming physically and emotionally 'burned-out'. She credits recovery of her senses and health to InterPlay, the Work of Byron Katie and the 12-step Workaholics Anonymous Program, and loves to share the playfulness and trust in her intuition and in life she has recovered.
Current passions are song-writing, InterPlaying, working the 12-steps and becoming fluent in the Dutch language.
