InterPlay Co-founders

Cynthia Winton-Henry & Phil Porter

Cynthia Winton-Henry and Phil Porter are philosophers, speakers, authors, teachers, and performers.

They have collaborated for 30 years. They began developing the InterPlay practice and philosophy in 1989 and have been sharing it around the world ever since. They are co-directors of the non-profit organization Body Wisdom, Inc., based in Oakland, California, which encompasses all InterPlay activities.

In 1989, they also created WING IT! Performance Ensemble, which has grown to be a company of over 20 improvisors who weave together movement, storytelling and singing, including live instrumental music.

They have lectured, taught, and performed throughout the United States and in other parts of the world, including India, Thailand, Australia, England, Malawi and Germany.

There are InterPlayers all over, including a large group of people who have been trained in the InterPlay Life Practice Program and the InterPlay Leader Training Program. The program is offered regional in several cities in the US and other parts of the world.

They have written and published several books both together and separately: Chasing the Dance of Life; What the Body Wants; Having it All!: Mind, Body, Heart & Spirit Together Again at Last; The Wisdom of the Body; and The Slightly Mad Rantings of a Body Intellectual Part One. They have created countless concerts including performances of their community-based concert The Unbelievable Beauty of Being Human in several cities including Sydney, Australia. Their books and other resources are available from WING IT! Press.
