This residential weekend is an opportunity to use InterPlay forms and ideas to explore our rapidly changing times from a masculine perspective. Discover with other men how the InterPlay tools based in movement, contact, voice, storytelling and stillness create connection and new beginnings. Learn with experienced InterPlay leaders to bring body, mind, heart and spirit together to tap into energy and active curiosity in your daily life.

The retreat is full. If you wish to be on the waiting list in case there are cancellations, please e-mail Billy at
