InterPlay & Meditation

Time for play, stillness, and rejuvenation
Lissa E

Glen Ridge, NJ

6:30-8p, select Sundays

All are welcome to join this newly forming InterPlay community in Northern NJ. We will explore stillness, movement, play, mindfulness, storytelling, and more. A guided restorative meditation will be offered to allow time for reflection, absorption, and relaxation.

InterPlay participants are invited to express themselves exactly as they are in the moment and encouraged to release any need to do things perfectly or "right" or to impress others. Through InterPlay's simple activities which are offered in incremental steps, you are invited to unlock the wisdom within yourself.

If you have any questions or comments, please message Lissa, our facilitator extraordinaire, who has a lifetime experience of play, a decade of experience in offering and exploring mindful and experiential movement and meditation practices as well as a strong background in mental health care and offering trauma and culturally-sensitive approaches.

Suggested Donation: $10. No one will be turned away for lack of funds.
