In Person!

InterPlay In-Person Leaders Gathering June 2023

Come gather with us in North Carolina!

Browns Summit, NC

Wed dinner – Sunday lunch, June 21-25, 2023

It's time for the 2023 in-person Leaders Gathering! Join us for deep play in a beautiful retreat setting.

We will gather at Haw River State Park in North Carolina. The event will be limited to 50-55 people, given the size of the main meeting/play space.

Bring your own ideas for workshops to be set up on the spot. Have a chance to organize conversations with other leaders about InterPlay issues that move you. Get new skills for education, spirituality, racial equity and transformation, art-making and leading your life. Discover new forms!

Lots of opportunities to play, create, perform, connect, converse, eat and relax. And laugh!

This event is open to all Life Practice Program and Leader Training Program grads as well as those currently taking part in either program (or who took part in earlier versions of either program).
