“The truly great advances of this generation will be made by those who can make outrageous connections, and only a mind which knows how to play can do that.”

~ Nagle Jackson, American playwright

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

InterPlay changed me. Once a serious person, InterPlay helped me to discover the deep resilience and grace found in my blood and bones. It came to me at a time of immense change, as my 92 year old mother began to make her transition. The birthright practices of voice, movement, story and stillness held me and allowed me to come through this rite of passage and associated trauma and loss with grace. Starting my day with intention, held in my body wisdom, transformed my way of living and being. Not only that, playing with others is a sneaky deep way to create lasting friendships and community.

I invite you to join us as we benefit from the widely known secret that play increases intelligence, longevity, resilience and neuroplasticity.

And… it’s fun!
