Marcia Smith-Wood
Marcia Smith-Wood discovered InterPlay in 2004 while in the Bay Area studying to become a Spiritual Director. Back home in northwest Indiana, she searched and found Chicago InterPlay, and fell in love with InterPlay’s contagiously creative joy, depth, beauty and physicality of grace. She went on to become an InterPlay leader. As a progressive minister, she uses InterPlay with the spiritual retreats she leads for all ages. Recently retired from pastoral ministry, her life continues to expand with joy, letting InterPlay be a part of her work as a Spiritual Director, a Certified Healing Touch Practitioner, artist, poet, and Dream Group Leader. Being a trained InterPlay leader is part of her spiritual call to live fully, deeply and joyfully as a healing presence in this world.
