The InterPlay Life Practice Program in Atlanta

Jennifer Denning, Christine Gautreaux, LMSW, and Carolyn Renée

Atlanta, GA

Secrets of InterPlay Fri–Sun, Mar 24–26, 2017; Monthly Meetings May–Oct 2017

The Life Practice Program creates opportunities to:

  • Discover new ways of getting what you really want in life based on an ethic of play;
  • Deepen what it means to live from your natural, embodied self;
  • Connect to the wisdom inherent in the creative expression of the body;
  • Rest in a community that respects and affirms the wisdom of each individual;
  • Expand your sense of connection, play and possibility in the areas you are called to serve in the world.

Each month, we will play with one of the 8 InterPlay Tools and deepen our practice of the InterPlay movement, storytelling, and vocal forms. The experiential format includes individual, paired and group forms, presentations, discussion and focus sessions. In between meetings, you'll have brief reading, reflection and writing assignments designed to support your integration and learning.

Jennifer, Christine and Carolyn bring deep love & a commitment to social justice to their work as InterPlay Leaders. In Atlanta they have expanded their InterPlay work to include offerings to women in prison, NAMI of Georgia, The Friendship Center and Trinity House. They actively integrate the principles and practices of InterPlay to sustain them in their personal and professional lives.
