The InterPlay Life Practice Program is an active, creative way to change your life and change your world.

Immerse yourself in the system of InterPlay—ideas and practices that can move you from where you are to where you would like to be.

Find freedom through movement, story, sound, and stillness, and discover creative ways to change what you want to change in your life.

You may use this supportive, affirming community to help you shape your life in ways that are best for you. You will get individual attention from the program leaders who will help you identify your personal desires and intentions.

Although some previous experience with InterPlay is encouraged, there are no prerequisites for taking part in the InterPlay Life Practice Program.

The Elements of the Life Practice Program

• A series of Saturday gatherings with your Life Practice Program group for play, presentation, discernment, and interaction, where you will have a chance to explore new creative possibilities in a supportive community.

• Receive three focus sessions during which you receive personal support from the program leaders to learn how to access your body wisdom, learn a new tool/skill, and apply it to whatever situation you desire.

• A Body-Spirit Celebration during the final Saturday to play with the InterPlay forms and share them with each other in a celebratory and honoring way.

• Reading and writing assignments which will help you apply InterPlay insights to your own life.

A Self-Study of several of the elements of the InterPlay system that will give you a more in-depth understanding of how InterPlay works.

• The Secrets of InterPlay multi-day event is included in your tuition. If you did not attend the one in DC October 2021, you can attend any other Secrets of InterPlay weekend at any time. This is an important element if you wish to go on to Leader Training.

Repeating the Program
Anyone who has previously completed the Life Practice Program is eligible for the $1,000 repeaters rate. You may also repeat the weekends only (without Secrets) for $750.

COVID Policy: Vaccinations are required. We want you to be tested before you arrive. We will be requiring masking for some of the forms. The room is large and will have two air circulators.

Financial Assistance
Diversity is a great gift in the InterPlay experience. Based on our commitment to Racial Equity and Transformation (read our statement here) and our understanding of other structural and personal inequalities that exist, Body Wisdom is committed to making our programs financially accessible.

Financial considerations need not be a barrier to your participation. Financial support and flexible payment plans are available. Please email info@interplay.org (or call 510/465-2797), or feel free to speak to one of the leaders of this program.

Life Practice Program Attendance
Community building is an integral part of the InterPlay system. To experience the most out of a Secrets of InterPlay weekend or the Life Practice Program, we recommend that you attend all of the sessions. This immersion program into the forms and tools of InterPlay is most effective when the group can stay together over time. If you are considering becoming an InterPlay leader, participation and attendance for the full program, including attending a Secrets of InterPlay weekend, will be necessary to complete the Life Practice Program, which is the first step in becoming a certified InterPlay leader. If you have questions about this please visit: InterPlay Leader Training Program.

For her, InterPlay has offered the best toolbox of forms and practices with which to excavate the mysteries of ourselves and our world. She uses applied InterPlay with clients in groups, workshops, and individually. Since 2005, she has been co-leading the InterPlay Life Practice Program in Washington DC.
Robin Carnes

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 has brought to her life and to those it touches, she enjoys connecting people to their Divine power and presence for greater expression and abundance in the world. Monisha is a certified Sacred Depths coach and leads the Hidden Monastery Dance Chapel every Tuesday. Contact her about experiencing your own Holy Play Dates.
