Art of Ensoulment Courses 2023

Explore the Wisdom of Your Body and Soul!













The word glory means “to make known.”

Every spiritual being is here on Earth to reveal something truly glorious. What a gift to know and live into life’s naturally elegant dance of body and soul.

In this epoch time of change and social challenge, leaders, creatives, and mystics need soul wisdom, efficiency of energy, clarity of vision and courageous love. Whether or not you are comfortable in body or soul, ensoulment tools are vital to our ground of being. 

Each year, Cynthia gathers people who are curious about body and soul. She recognizes wise, playful, sensitive people who feel more, think more, notice more,  suffer more, and sometimes have difficulty cultivating their wisdom and acceptance in institutional spaces.

As a teacher, researcher, artist, sensitive, and theologian, her longing for sacred community led to the lifelong quest to live fully into body and soul. In the process, Cynthia uncovered twelve wisdoms that support the playground of ensoulment. Co-founding InterPlay, she and her colleague Phil learned to improvise with the creative birthrights of movement, voice, story, and stillness. The rich interplay of these arts illuminates and amplifies communication with the inner and outer worlds. Humans love to connect to life the way trees, molecules, and waves do. No solemn oath is needed if we honor each living being in their nature as part of the Dance of Life. Today these 12 wisdom practices are ready to provide a joyful infrastructure as a growing body of practitioners use them to live fully and effectively in our changing world.

  1. Amber Walker says:

    Yes! Yes! Yes!
    I am so ready for this. THIS.
    The wings in my heart are fluttering with anticipation and YES.
    I love you.

  2. jean Martinolich says:

    Hey Cynthia, I am interested in the group with friends. I have one person in mind. It would be great to find someone in another part of the country. I have to ask my friend first. I think we are both having trouble dealing with our limitations that make our full-to-the-brim, thousand-gallon bucket list unmanageable. But I want to make sure I understand. We would pay 55 each. How do you fit in? Who are we responding to? I will look more closely, but I need this a lot know although I am more overwhelmed by details of survival than ever before. It will be hard for me to do unless I know I am accountable to someone. I truly don’t have the time and really have very little time that I am not dealing with something.

    I miss interplay and share it a little now and then but have fallen out of practice.

  3. beverly voss says:

    Cynthia, what is zoom? I’m a technosaur. Also, is the 9:30 on Th. am? I’m assuming so. 11:30 in TX. I’m thinking on this. Sept. could work for me. Bev

  4. Hi Cynthia,
    I’m interested in starting in September. Do you have any idea what days and time you are considering?
    Also will the classes be live online and the be bailable for replay?

  5. Cynthia Winton-Henry says:

    Hi Bev. Do you have a computer or iPad with a camera? That is all you need. I haven’t set a time yet. The times you are seeing are for the dance chapel. You could try one out to get used to this kind of connection. Generally, people just click on the link and a window will open up on your computer just like magic. I can coach you one to one if it would be helpful

  6. Dear Cynthia,

    I am so elated to discover the Interplay body of work together with the treat of discovering you Cynthia.
    I am interested in doing the monthly initiating with you starting in Jan. 2021
    especially if the program will be offered earlier in the day, like 1:00-3:30p.m.

    • cynthia winton-henry says:

      Hi Rina! I would be delighted to have you in the ensoulment program–Let me sort out the timing and I’ll get back to you!

  7. JANE VERNON says:

    Hi! Cynthia…….
    I am interested in the 4 month Ensoulment Chapel. If I decide I want to continue after the 4 months, is that possible? Also I cannot find where you register for the 4 month program. I only see the year long program registration. This will be a bold adventure for me!
    Grateful for this opportunity…….. Jane

    • cynthia winton-henry says:

      Hi Jane. THank you for your interest. Just register for 80/month. You can continue to pay if you choose to go on. Great to be with you!

  8. Shauna says:

    Thank you, thank you Cynthia for your teaching and being. Since I just completed your course I wanted to write something about my experience for others that may be curious….Cynthia’s presence and Art of Ensoulment Course has been such a meaningful gift in my life. I didn’t know what to expect at first it was right on time with all the unexpected twists and turns of 2020. It has allowed me to connect with messages in my body that informed actions centered on love for myself and others. As a sensitive person, mother, and therapist, I learned how to balance better. The course has inspired contemplations leading to greater peace within. I know myself better and have greater confidence and acceptance for what is. Cynthia resonates her joy in teaching as she shares generously with a genuinely kind and welcoming nature. She has always been respectful, honoring the value that everyone brings. Her teaching style included readings with suggested practices to experiment with, group connection where everyone had space to be seen and heard, time for listening, praying, playing, moving, being still. In addition, the opportunity to meet individually has been a magical mix to support in my liberation journey. Without knowing exactly what others will get out of the Art of Ensoulment Course for the first time or repeating, I know it will be pleasing to the soul. Cynthia as a teacher is gifted at supporting people to have their own experiences leading to surprises only the individual can uncover. I am whole heartily grateful for my connection with Cynthia and the teachings that supported my development in the Art of Ensoulment Course. I highly recommend you give the Art of Ensoulment Course a try for yourself or at least contact Cynthia if you’re curious.

    • cynthia winton-henry says:

      Thank you so much dear Shauna! What a joy its been to accompany you. You ensoul such deep grace and wisdom.

  9. Beth Cross says:

    Thank you so much for offering this. I’ve known for awhile that I wanted to find a way to work with you. I’ve just finished the life practice programme and did so with the realisation I wanted to be more involved in chapel and what I discerned as your work beyond a twelve step programme — or integrating the wisdom of twelve step work with something both more physical and spiritual.

    • cynthia winton-henry says:

      Hi Beth, I will email you with more information about working together. I look forward to checking in! Blessings, Cynthia

  10. Johannas Jordan says:

    Hi Cynthia,
    It has been a very difficult two years for me. I am feeling both swamped and at loose ends. typical me. I think I might be ready for this course. But I don’t know. One of my difficulties is I don’t make very good decisions and I don’t trust myself or trust that I will hear God. I trust God, but am not connect well right now. I feel so isolated and alone. Just not sure.

    • cynthia winton-henry says:

      Dear Jo, I hear you and extend my love and support. This is an initiation. As we age we destabilize. Home. Family. Routines change. Not for sissies. And for we who are gifted and sensitive, we can lose our bearings. Now is the time to employ all we have learned about transition and to actually let go and receive more. This is a route through humility and audacious emotional reality. And of course, the Divine. May she grow strong in you. Come play.
