The Secrets of Leading provides an overview of the InterPlay system and covers the underlying structure and philosophy of InterPlay:


~How are the forms taught? How do they work together?

~How do you deal with people you find challenging?


The workshop includes presentation, interaction, and play.

Leaders
Ginny Going
As a recovering serious person, I consider InterPlay my 12-step program and my life practice for having more ease and grace. I've worn a variety of vocational hats in my life and currently describe myself as a community artist, bodyspirit mentor and InterPlay leader. I love offering people the "big body" tools of InterPlay for telling their stories, especially people on the margins of our communities. I am also passionate about embodied spirituality, engaging people in prayer and worship forms that include and honor the body through movement, stories and song. With my partner and husband Tom Henderson, I teach and lead retreats in a variety of settings.
Thomas Henderson
Tom is a certified InterPlay leader, community artist, organization development consultant and retired pharmaceutical chemist. With his wife, Ginny Going, he is co-owner of Colleagues, a business dedicated to enabling individuals and organizations to thrive. Ginny and Tom also co-directed the Interplay performance company Off the Deep End Ensemble for 15 years beginning in 1997.
Coke Tani
Coke Tani, MSW, MFA is an interdisciplinary artist, former community-based therapist, and serves as InterPlay's Liaison to Leaders of Color nationwide. It is her joy to co-lead InterPlay classes for People of Color, the Secrets of InterPlay, the Life Practice Program, and customized workshops and retreats. She believes that one of InterPlay's most powerful yet understated gifts is its wise engagement of whole persons--body, mind, heart and soul--for individual and collective transformation.
