4 days of deep play and leadership wisdom

InterPlay Leaders Gathering 2018

Open to all Life Practice and Leader Training participants and grads
Phil Porter and Cynthia Winton-Henry

Bangor, PA

Aug 1-5, 2018 • Wednesday dinner–Sunday lunch (Board meeting July 30-Aug 1, beginning with dinner on Monday)

Come for deep and satisfying play with Cynthia and Phil and others with years of InterPlay experience. The wisdom in the InterPlay community of leaders is deep.

Bring your own ideas for workshops to be set up on the spot. Have a chance to organize conversations with other leaders about InterPlay issues that move you. Get new skills for education, spirituality, racial equity and transformation, art-making and leading your life. Discover new forms! Get met in your glory, humanity, artistry, and body wisdom.

Lots of opportunities to play, create, perform, connect, converse, eat and relax. And laugh!

This event is open to all Life Practice Program and Leader Training Program grads as well as those currently taking part in either program (or who took part in earlier versions of either program.)

Charming and comfortable rooms and three meals a day that you don’t have to cook.

This year, we will be in a new east coast location—Kirkridge—a beautiful spot in Pennsylvania. We will be doing some transportation coordination to get to the center from a nearby airport. Newark is probably the best airport to fly into.

Register is closed at this time.
