Chasing the Dance of Life: A Faith Journey

by Cynthia Winton-Henry
"What do you do if you hear voices or see things? As a European woman I'll tell you what you should do. You should shut up. However, if voices prod you to quench the thirst for big human needs like Love, Justice, and Freedom, you might become a blabbermouth performance artist like me. You might try to demystify dance, healing rituals and communal peace making enough to wave a flag in sight of the mainstream. The voice of Love is that compelling..."

Dance--The Sacred Art

by Cynthia Winton-Henry
As simple as one handing dancing, as breath taking, as saying yes to the dancing universe, the tools and gifts of InterPlay's simple accessible approach are shared by this master teacher.

“If you’re thinking ‘But I’m not a dancer’ or ‘I feel awkward,’ I hope to reassure you. You don’t need a special talent to move. You don’t need to be ‘graceful’ or especially coordinated. You don’t need a body that’s ‘in shape.’ Dancing helps us embrace all this humanity. Dancing connects us to the holy of life.” ?from the Introduction.

Seize the joy and healing power of dance. Drawing from her years of experience as a dance and movement teacher and as co-founder of InterPlay, a global social movement, Cynthia Winton-Henry helps you discover in your own movement a place of solace and restoration, as well as an energizing spiritual force. She taps into the spirit of dancing throughout history and in many world cultures to provide detailed exercises that will help you learn to trust your body and interpret its physical and spiritual intentions. For both newcomers and seasoned movers alike she encourages you to embrace dance as a spiritual tool.

This information will be personally and professionally relevant to anyone who works with kids; especially those with frequent difficulties. Participants will receive a Power Point Presentation, handouts and resources.

InterPlay Experts Presentations: Money Wisdom

Money Wisdom

by Phil Porter

InterPlay co-founder Phil Porter presents Money Wisdom, a body-wise approach to understanding our relationship to all things financial.

Money is usually a taboo subject. Because of that, our personal money practices can be shrouded in mystery, laced with denial and include ineffective or even harmful practice.

What would happen if we applied some of the ideas and practices that InterPlay has to offer to our money-lives? What if we bring our money information more into the open? Phil shares some concrete money-related ideas and practices to consider, based on his own experience and from teaching many classes on Money Wisdom over the years.

Along with a link to a video recording of the presentation, you will receive a copy of Phil’s articles The Economics of Grace and Big Body Deals: Money.

InterPlay Experts Presentations: Resilient Vulnerability© for Creative People in Risky Roles

Resilient Vulnerability© for Creative People in Risky Roles

by Dr. Mark Seton

Dr. Mark Seton has done sixteen years of research into creativity, complexity and resilience in arts and other professions (law, medicine) where vulnerability is unavoidable in dealing with demanding situations.

Working first with actors taking on demanding roles, Seton developed the concept of Resilient Vulnerability© which can apply to anyone who may need to “let go” or “shake off” a difficult role. InterPlay is integral to this process.

In this presentation, Mark shares the seven elements that foster Resilient Vulnerability: presence, perception, preparation, process, perspective, partnership and play. With these, one can sustain an easeful vulnerability, rather than “armoring up” against challenging activities or interactions.

Dr. Mark Seton has taught in a whole range of academic and organizational settings. He is a certified InterPlay Leader and has served as Chair of the InterPlay Australia, Inc. Board. More about his work on his website Sense Connexion (www.senseconnexion.com).

Along with a link to the video recording of Mark’s presentation, you will receive notes of his key points, a reference list, and articles he has written on the subject.

InterPlay Experts Presentations: The Student Body

The Student Body

by Dr. Caroline Kisiel

Dr. Caroline Kisiel is an Assistant Professor in DePaul University’s School for New Learning where she works with both undergraduate and graduate adult learners returning to school to seek or finish degrees.

She has twenty-three years of experience as an InterPlayer and twenty years of experience teaching adults in higher education. Caroline has used approaches from the InterPlay practice and system in a variety of classroom settings, which she has found relevant for twenty-first century learners, particularly adults returning to school and students in formal degree programs.

This presentation is for educators who work with students in any discipline. Today’s adult and young adult students show up in our classrooms with life and work anxieties, challenging experiences with grading and authority, and often find that academic expectations translate into judgment and issues of self worth and identity. While most students in formal classroom settings have been taught head and brain-centered ways of learning and how to “focus” on information, using the InterPlay practice Caroline teaches a whole body approach to learning, the value of releasing the excess or unneeded through “exformation,” and how “easy focus” learning can be just as valuable as focused learning. By including the wisdom of the body in the classroom it is possible to create ease-filled, successful learning experiences and more collaborative learning communities.

In addition to the video recording, you will receive a list of resources Dr. Kisiel has found useful.
