Leaders
Sharie Bowman
Sharie Bowman, MA is a Mental Health Counselor and Regional InterPlay Leader. She has been leading InterPlay since 2004 and has co-led six Life Practice Programs. She is particularly intrigued with the potential InterPlay has to support people to create healthier lives by following the wisdom of their bodies and taking the lead in their own lives. In her private practice she regularly weaves InterPlay’s life-enhancing forms and philosophies to help individuals and families thrive. For over 20 years, she has been exploring the wisdom of the body through a variety of modalities including InterPlay, Authentic Movement, Core-Energetics, and Biodynamic Psychotherapy.
Stephen Condit
After decades in higher education and technology, Steve rediscovered life-below-the-neck through movement and the embodied voice practices of Gabrielle Roth's 5Rhythms® and Chloe Goodchild’s The Naked Voice. His explorations have also included taking Aikido with his son and studying embodied leadership with Richard Strozzi-Heckler. But all this was just a prelude to InterPlay. Steve says “for me, discovering InterPlay was like coming home. InterPlay combines my major life interests, movement, voice, storytelling, and stillness and has opened new, easier paths for my personal and spiritual growth, all in the context of play. It has provided balance to my intellectual and serious approach to life and restored my joy and creativity.” Steve has co-facilitated Secrets of InterPlay and the Life Practice so that others may rediscover the joy of play and learn that transformation does not have to involve struggle.
TraceyJoy Miller
TraceyJoy was first drawn into InterPlay in 1999 by the playful encouragement of the InterPlay community in the Twin Cities. Initially, InterPlay was an opportunity to have more dance and contact with others (even though she wasn’t a “dancer”). Over time, InterPlay became a community where she could show up “as is” and play with her own creative expression and the content of her life, while being held in positive regard and affirmed by others. InterPlay allowed her to step beyond the limits of who she knew herself to be. She became more playful in her relationships and more resilient in challenging situations.

For the last Six years she and her beloved cat Simon have lived in co-housing on Whidbey Island. It is her passion to create environments where play, reflection, creative expression, insight and growth are likely to emerge. She is committed to being an agent of affirmation and encouragement for authentic expression.
