InterPlay is an active, creative way to unlock the wisdom of the body.InterPlay integrates body, mind, heart and spirit. Life has become so fragmented. InterPlay helps to pull everything back together so we get more of what we want.
InterPlay is devoted to fun. It teaches the language and ethic of play in a deep and powerful way. If you are convinced that seriousness is the path to inner wisdom, then you might want to look elsewhere. If you would like to become a “recovering serious person,” then InterPlay might be for you.
InterPlay is firmly based in affirmation and looking for the good. You don’t have to think of yourself as creative in order to do InterPlay. We can teach you that part easily. We get far too much criticism in our lives already. We need to spend more time in the warm bath of acceptance.
InterPlay is the perfect antidote to stress and cynicism.
InterPlay is a community of people around the world who speak the shared language of a wide and deep variety of play. It is a body of bodies who enjoy contact and connection. You don”t have to dive in the deep end of InterPlay to learn and benefit from it, but it does exist and some wonderful folks are “swimming” there.
InterPlay has been developed by Cynthia Winton-Henry and Phil Porter over the last twenty years and it has spread around the world.
Cynthia Winton–Henry and Phil Porter co–direct Body Wisdom, Inc., an NGO that shares InterPlay®, a practice and philosophy they created over the course of a 35-year collaboration. The InterPlay tools draw out the wisdom of the body through creative practice.
As artists, teachers, performers, speakers and writers, Phil and Cynthia are committed to fostering ease, creativity and community through the integration of body, mind, spirit, and heart. InterPlay is both transformative and fun.
