"Anyone can slay a dragon, but try waking up everyday and loving the world all over again. That's what takes a REAL hero." Brian Andreas

It's been a long, challenging time since DC InterPlayers came together for a full weekend retreat. Our idea is a simple one. We will ecstatically follow our InterPlay leaders, eat healthy good food and reweave the community, all in the beautiful natural surroundings of Wellspring Retreat Center. Whether you are new to InterPlay, or you've been around a long time, join us for the magical medicine that is InterPlay. Be a REAL hero, and show up to fall in love with the world all over again through moving, sounding and telling stories together.

COVID POLICY: Vaccinations are required. Testing immediately prior to the event is required — at-home or PCR. Masks optional.

Cost: $250 for a single room; $450 for a double room

Leaders
Billy Amoss

Kate Amoss
Kate Amoss, MA, LCPC, is an InterPlay Teacher and Professional Counselor in private practice. Trained in archetypal depth psychology, she has an abiding curiosity in all things hidden below surfaces -- deep roots, bedrock truths, neuro-biological processes, ancestral antecedents, and ancient cataclysms. For her, InterPlay has offered the best toolbox of forms and practices with which to excavate the mysteries of ourselves and our world. She uses applied InterPlay with clients in groups, workshops, and individually. Since 2005, she has been co-leading the InterPlay Life Practice Program in Washington DC.
Robin Carnes
Robin Carnes, MBA, Certified Yoga Therapist, is a Certified InterPlay Leader. She loves weaving InterPlay forms and principles into her work with a wide range of populations. Robin is a pioneer in bringing evidence -based yoga and meditation practice into mainstream settings such as the US Department of Defense, the Veterans Administration, Manhattan College, and Blackboard, Inc. Robin trains healthcare providers in using mind-body tools in their work with patients and has lectured internationally on Mind-Body approaches to mental health and stress conditions. In addition to her work with the military, Robin has offered Yoga Rhythmics and InterPlay workshops, classes, and retreats for many years, combining music and movement to create community and cultivate self-love.
Douglass Farnum
Since retiring, play deprived Douglass works hard at doing nothing. He finds that interplay feeds his inner growth and complements his meditation and Non Violent Communication (NVC) practices. After 10 years of dabbling in interplay Doug recently became an interplay leader.
Liz Lescault
Liz Lescault, a visual artist and sculptor, has practiced and taught art for over 40 years. Liz is Coordinator of the DC InterPlay Metro Region with Kate Amoss and is a member of the DC InterPlay Board. Currently, Liz melds her art, teaching and personal philosophy with InterPlay wisdom, tools and forms. Liz also leads InterPlay for elders with chronic illness and cognitive disabilities at Iona Senior Center, as well as leading InterPlay for Smith Center for Healing and the Arts offering programs for adults living with cancer and their caregivers.
Monisha Mittal
Monisha is a mystic, a writer and recovering over-achiever. For the last 2 years she has been leading Divine Revelations Dance Chapel under Cynthia Winton-Hentry's Hidden Monastery Chapel. Early in her career, working in rural India and north Philadelphia, she noticed her joy at helping women and children find their individual expression and voice. More than twenty years later, InterPlay came running to meet her when she left her full-time corporate job. Inspired by the freedom, connection and laughter InterPlay has brought to her life and to those it touches, she enjoys connecting people to their Divine power and presence for greater expression and abundance in the world. Monisha is a certified Sacred Depths coach and leads the Hidden Monastery Dance Chapel every Tuesday. Contact her about experiencing your own Holy Play Dates.
