Online Leaders Gathering March 2023

Open to all Life Practice and Leader Training participants and grads
Christine Gautreaux, MSW, Phil Porter, and Angela Urata


Thursday–Sunday • March 9–12, 2023 • Schedule below

This year we are having two Leaders Gatherings and the first will be held online March 9–12, 2023! This Gathering will be cheaper, easier to get to, and will allow a wider range of folks to attend. You can pick and choose the time slots that work best for you and match your “Zoom attention span.”

More about the in-person Leaders Gathering in June in North Carolina here...

InterPlay co-founder Phil Porter, who will be stepping back from his leadership position in the organization soon after the Gathering, will be providing some of the leadership and there will be opportunities to celebrate him during the Gathering. 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.


Sessions are scheduled in a way to accommodate most North American times zones and also provide a bit of overlap with time zones that work for participants in other locations. The times listed below will also include breaks between sessions.

Thursday–Sunday, March 9–12, 2023
Thu • 4–6 pm Pacific Time / 7–9 pm Eastern Time
Fri–Sat • 9 am – 6 pm PT / noon–9 pm ET
Sun • 9 am – 1 pm PT / noon–4 pm ET
