Come play, be emptied, be nourished in communal artistry that includes lighthearted, improvisational movement, spontaneous play, stillness, and story telling mixed with silliness and reverence.
The InterPlay, international movement is a holistic, creative, easy approach and practice designed to facilitate individual/communal play and delight in your ability to move, create and have your voice
Simply put InterPlay is described as going out to a bar, going to church and to the gym all at the same time or a "Sanctuary of Expression".
Expect to dance with merriment, laugh out loud, discover your authentic expression and be surprised how easy it is.
You will be serenaded by musicians, improvising energetic and soothing sounds to elicit playfulness, imagination and human heartedness.
Every Third Wednesday of the month from 7:00 to 8:45pm
Join us for a joy filled and soulfully moving evening--be refreshed, alive and surprisingly at ease. No experience necessary, just an open heart and willingness to play.

Devi considers InterPlay as meditation in motion which allows participants to connect more deeply with their body, soul and heart moving from the inside out. Play is where I find beauty and grace. Life is a Dance. Learning to blend the myriad experiences of life with acceptance and grace allows you to move forward with greater ease and rewarding results. This is the artistry and gift of InterPlay.
