Seeking to deepen embodied connection with the Divine?

Praying the Body

The Practice of InterPlay as Soulwork
Cynthia Winton-Henry

Berkeley, CA

July 9-13 9am-1pm

Cynthia Winton-Henry assists leaders around the world to befriend the mystery of body and soul. Based on research done at Pacific School of Religion she and Phil Porter crafted the philosophy and practice of InterPlay to unlock the wisdom of the body. Today people in churches, cathedrals, synagogues, classrooms, hospitals and churches use InterPlay in their creative and spiritual journey.

With the body at theological center, this course illuminates how diverse methods of embodied prayer illuminate different aspects of our relationship with the divine. Explore how body wisdom liberates the joy and possibility that prayer can be fun. Learn five modalities of soul making: movement, voice, word, stillness, and connections that allow spirit to move as it did in ancient, more embodied days.

Delve into embodying prayers for different occasions, ways to heal, and listen to the holy in new and surprising ways.

Cost: 1.5 credits - $990; audit - $495; 2.0 CEUs - $350
