Unlock the wisdom of your body!

Have more fun
Decrease stress and increase ease
Make wiser, more grounded decisions
Thrive by integrating body, mind, heart, and spirit
Find easy ways to make the changes you want to see in your life—in your relationships, work, community, home, spirit, body image
Discover your hidden resources.

The Life Practice Program is an active, creative way to change your life and change your world. Immerse yourself in the system of InterPlay—ideas and practices that can move you from where you are to where you want to be. You will learn the improvisational forms of InterPlay to express yourself in word, movement, music and stillness while enhancing your creativity. The InterPlay tools and concepts will bring awareness and practices for more play, joy and ease in your life.

During the Life Practice Program you will meet regularly over 4 months with a group of fellow InterPlayers. You may use this supportive, affirming community to help you shape your life in ways that are best for you. You will get individual attention from the program leaders, who will help support you in achieving your personal desires and intentions.

Although some previous experience with InterPlay is encouraged, there are no prerequisites for taking part in the Life Practice Program.
