(9:30 am to 5:00 pm each day)

The InterPlay Life Practice Program is an active, creative way to change your life and change your world. Immerse yourself in the system of InterPlay—ideas and practices that can move you from where you are to where you would like to be.

This program begins with a 3-day retreat The Secrets of InterPlay. You may also take the Secrets in another location or after the Life Practice Program.

• Unlock the wisdom of your body!
• Have more fun!
• Decrease stress and increase ease.
• Make wiser, more grounded decisions.
• Thrive by getting body, mind, heart and spirit to all work together.
• Find easy ways to change what you want to change in your life: relationships, work, community, home, spirit, body image…
• Discover your hidden resources.

You will be meeting regularly over a period of time with a group of fellow InterPlayers. You may use this supportive, affirming community to help you shape your life in ways that are best for you. You will get individual attention from the program leaders who will help you identify your personal desires and intentions.

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 has been InterPlaying since 1999. She discovered InterPlay in the Twin Cities, spent 3 years in Oakland where she trained as an InterPlay Leader, and has been playing in the Seattle area since 2011. Since her 20’s she has studied and applied a variety of approaches to accessing the wisdom of her body and healing. And, she loves supporting others to do the same. She spent many years committed to working on herself; working to become “good enough”. Thankfully InterPlay has brought a balance of levity, playfulness, and community to her life long, sincere explorations as a human being. She considers herself a “Recovering Serious Person”.
