The ongoing Men's Drop-In Class invites everyone (including women) to join in!

Summer Solstice is around the corner; why not celebrate it? Long, bright days, happy summer memories, delicious fruit from the farmers' market... Summer is a great time for embodiment. Join us in welcoming a season to savor and to bask in, and gaze blinking into the sparkling realm of possibility. We will play, lean, shout, share stories, splash around in the shallow end, and welcome whatever comes!

Leaders
John Diller
John Diller, MA in Education, is a certified InterPlay leader and has been leading workshops and retreats for more than 16 years. He found his way to InterPlay via a winding road that includes poetry, improv, Permaculture, storytelling, the great outdoors, Buddhist philosophy, bicycling, and eight years of teaching high school theater. He has lead the Thursday evening men’s InterPlay class in Oakland for the last 6 years and works by day at a management consulting company. John thanks InterPlay for an increasingly embodied and nourishing life and for the opportunity to help others use InterPlay to have more fun, connect, dive deep, and so much more.
Amos Alan Lans
Amos Alan Lans likes to tell folks, “I became a dancer in my 50’s, thanks to InterPlay!” Amos is one of the three co-leaders of the Thursday evening men’s drop-in class. He loves introducing InterPlay to groups of men, especially gay men, especially older gay men who are learning new ways of enjoying being in their ageing bodies as well as playful ways of connecting with other guys. Letting stories emerge from movement is one of Amos’ favorite InterPlay activities. For 20+ years, Amos set up and taught in public school gardening programs. He now teaches the joys of composting, gardening, and healthy eating to at-risk urban youth in North Oakland’s Dover Street Edible Park, near his home on 61st Street.
Jonathan Leavy
Jonathan Leavy brings a rich and varied bundle of experience to his InterPlay leading. Originally from Colorado, Jonathan used his music major from Colorado State University and performed in and around Florida and New York City for 12 years. From off-broadway to cruise ships, and from dinner theaters to theme parks, Jonathan has found joy through diverse musical theater opportunities. A call to ministry brought Jonathan to Pacific School of Religion in 1998 where he focused on spirituality and the arts. Jonathan has completed the InterPlay Leadership Program and is a long-time member of WING IT! Performance Ensemble and a leader in the InterPlay community, teaching classes and retreats with a focus on the voice and performing.
