Enjoy walks around the lake in the crisp air, warm fires and wonderful companions. A grace-filled way to celebrate the turning point from one year to the next. Come for community, laughter and creative play with people who will affirm and applaud you. This retreat also satisfies one of the requirements of the InterPlay Leader Training Programs.

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-direct Off the Deep End Ensemble, an InterPlay performance company founded in 1997.
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. Currently I co-lead a SpiritPlay group for clergy and spiritual leaders, an InterPlay for Women group and a Deepening with InterPlay group for InterPlay leaders., Along with my partner and husband Tom Henderson I teach, lead retreats and perform with Off The Deep End Ensemble, the InterPlay-based performance group that we started in 1997.
