A Video Intro to InterPlay

InterPlay is a powerful tool to change people’s lives.

It is an active, creative way to unlock the wisdom of the body.

But it is hard to describe. Once someone described it as “sneaky deep”. It can be both playful and profound. It uses forms associated with the arts—movement, storytelling, voice and stillness—but does it in ways that don’t require particular skill or even nerve.

Hands MovingInterPlay is easy and incremental. The things that you might be asked to do are things that almost anyone can do. We don’t generally put people on the spot or intentionally make people do silly things. Of course, if you are already down with being silly—which is a wonderful version of openness—you will have plenty of opportunities to go for it.

Unlocking Body Wisdom

We have neatly packed our experience into separate boxes and UPSed it in all different directions.

To “unlock body wisdom” means opening up those boxes and taking a closer look at their contents. We can notice our experience, believe that it is important even if others seem to be telling us it isn’t, and pay closer attention to it. It can help us make better choices in our lives.


Shy? Not feeling creative?

Women chattingYou don’t have to be an extroverted artist to do InterPlay. Most of us are pretty shy and few of us think of ourselves as being all that creative. InterPlay is easy and incremental. It is a gradual and affirming way to find freedom and fun.

Throughout our lives we have been taught how to contain ourselves. In the process we may have lost abilities that are crucial for our wellbeing, not to mention just having fun.

Expect to Laugh!

You can expect to laugh in almost any InterPlay event—class, workshop, performance. What is life without it? Wouldn’t you like more of it in your life? Many of us are “recovering serious people”.
