InterPlay, Politics & Change
Fri–Sun, Apr 28–30, 2017 • 6:45 pm Friday to 4 pm Sunday
We’re all going a little crazy politics-wise, right?
Well, let's get together and play with this in a whole new way!
InterPlay co-founder Phil Porter will lead a weekend workshop on Friday-Sunday, April 28-30, 2017 to explore how an arts-based practice like InterPlay can provide a body-wise way to change ourselves, our communities, our systems and our world.
Change can happen at many levels—personal, communal, political, mystical. Getting clear is a helpful part of the process. And if we want bigger change, the ability to “get on the same page” with larger groups of people is important.
In the workshop, Phil will share some of his own tools for understanding how change works, especially in the current political landscape. We will use the word "politics" broadly. You will also have a chance to explore your own body wisdom around these subjects as well and notice how the practices of InterPlay let us live directly into a different way of being in community. We will include all parts of ourselves—body, mind, heart & spirit.
Then, as an experiment, the group will try to move to collective agreement about an issue to focus on and to discern practices, ideas and actions that might advance that issue.
This workshop will be led from a progressive point of view, but hopefully with room for a range of opinions and beliefs. It will also include an examination of both the strengths and challenges of progressive thinking and strategy.
No InterPlay experience is required, but willingness to engage—to be both forthright and self-reflective—will be helpful.
