The Secrets of Leading InterPlay is a multi-day workshop and the first component of the InterPlay Leader Training Program, which leads to becoming a certified InterPlay leader. It is open to those who have completed or are in the process of completing the InterPlay Life Practice Program. In order to attend Secrets of Leading, you must enroll in the Leader Training Program at the same time you register for this event. (See below.) The next step after attending Secrets of Leading will be to register for the Teaching Practicum. Please check here Leader Training Program for the next available Teaching Practicum and for more information on how to continue your Leader Training.


The Secrets of Leading provides an overview of the InterPlay system and covers the underlying structure and philosophy of InterPlay:


~How are the forms taught? How do they work together?
~What is the ultimate outcome or effect of using InterPlay forms?
~How do you decide which forms to use at what times?
~How do you deal with people you find challenging?


The workshop includes presentation, interaction, and play.

Attendance
The Secrets of Leading is an integral part of the InterPlay Leader Training Program. We ask that participants commit to and make arrangements for attending all sessions of this four-day event. We understand that unexpected life events can happen to prevent full participation. If this should occur, participants will be expected to listen to recordings of the sessions missed.


Enrollment/Tuition
SPECIAL $200 DISCOUNT Tuition for the InterPlay Leader Training Program is currently $1400 (a $200 discount). A $100 deposit is required to enroll in the Program, in addition to the $300 for the Secrets of Leading. Another $300 payment will be due when you register for a Teaching Practicum, at which time a payment plan for the remaining $700 balance will need to be set up with the Body Wisdom office.

Diversity is a great gift in the InterPlay experience.

Ginny Going
As a recovering serious person, I consider InterPlay my 12-step program and my life practice for having more ease and grace. I've been InterPlaying for 27 years and have watched the blooming and spread of InterPlay all over the world with gratefulness and delight.

For the past 13 years I've been immersed in the development and growth of the Leader Training Program and currently serve as the program coordinator. I love offering people the "big body" tools of InterPlay for telling their stories, especially people on the margins of our communities. I am also passionate about embodied spirituality, engaging people in prayer and worship forms that include and honor the body. It has been an amazing experience to participate in and teach InterPlay in many places around the world.

Currently the Leader Training Program is being reshaped to integrate Racial Equity and Transformation into all aspects of InterPlay leader training. This is truly an exciting and exhilerating time to be part of the world-wide community of InterPlay!
