Peter Buck
Joy Hughes
Lynda Letourneau
I have been exploring Interplay incrementally for about 15+ years. I lead a class intermittently and particularly like to lead a slow, steady class that has a theme. I'm interested in paying delightful attention to my own body wisdom and leading others to do the same. I work as an occupational therapist primarily in a rural Home Health setting/ communities. I'm on a long learning curve on how to sneak InterPlay into my life and work. I've also been doing DOBO at funerals and weddings for friends and loved ones.
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.

Some of her main influencers are the Work of Byron Kate, her 12-step recovery and Arnold Mindell's ideas on quantum physics, the Tao and the Dreaming body.

Earlier years.
As 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 and other systems and loves to share the playfulness and trust in her intuition and in life she has recovered.
Current passions are music and song-writing, InterPlaying and becoming more fluent in the Dutch language.
Nancy Moore
Nancy is a watercolor artist, weaving the arts n arts of healing, energy work, and ministry. She leads workshops she calls Image Evoked Storytelling, and is publishing a portfolio of images to initiate storytelling for the beholder.
Leroy Petunia
Leroy Petunia (gay/gem/ger) has been following the breadcrumb trail of ger wildest birthrights since gay were wee. Leroy found InterPlay when ger roots began cracking through the plastic pot of external authority, and gay realized that joy was both the path and the compass of ger life's purpose. Gay believe play is the key to staying on that purpose-full path, as well as an offering in the Divine courtship of collective liberation.
Amy Smith
A hospice chaplain and InterPlay leader, Amy knows first hand the challenge and joy of working with high-end empathy and sensitivity. Amy is gifted, compassionate, a sensitive body with somatic and InterPlay training, massage therapy, and more.
