Join us for this year’s online leader’s gathering as we are Weaving the Threads of Connection together.

We’ll be having four days of deep play InterPlaying with each other and sharing..

How do we feel called to share InterPlay?

Who are we as a global community?

How can InterPlay change the world?

This year we are offering two Leaders Gatherings and the first will be held online March 7-10, 2024! This Gathering will be cheaper, easier to get to, and will allow a wider range of folks to attend and we get to play with folks from all over the world! You can pick and choose the time slots that work best for you and match your “Zoom attention span.”

We will have whole group sessions, opportunities to move together in large and small groups, a whole range of informative, interesting, and playful workshops, and wonderful opportunities to see old friends and make new ones.

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). Art & Social Change grads are also welcome to attend.
