Event description

Description

Note on dates: This is a 5-class workshop series. Eventbrite makes this look a little strange, no it is not a full month! It is every Monday, 6:30-8pm, January 14th - February 11th.



Start the New Year with a deeper connection to your body. In this 5-week series we’ll explore the foundational practices of InterPlay, a 35-year-old system using movement, storytelling and song to uncover the wisdom of the body. Join us as we practice tools for cultivating more ease, flow and joy in 2019 and beyond. In addition to supporting personal wellbeing, the InterPlay system offers playful practices that support interpersonal relationships, healthy group dynamics and embodied leadership. Take these tools into your work, life, activism and facilitation.

This series will support participants to:
• Connect more deeply with the wisdom of the body
• Drop out of the head and into the present moment
• Discover hidden resources for navigating uncertainty and doubt
• Learn a joyful form of creative improvisation
• Make wiser, more grounded decisions
• Practice synchronizing mind and body
• Name and claim more joy, freedom and expression

This class is open to anyone who wants to develop practices for more embodied living. In particular, we’re creating space for for artists, activists, teachers, social workers, therapists, LGBTQ+ folks, PoC, healers and spiritual leaders.

Accessibility info:

This workshop is at InterPlayce, the home of InterPlay. Yay! The space is wheelchair accessible, with all activities happening at ground floor.
