I incorporate InterPlayful tools, rituals, and grounding for wisdom keepers and artists of life. While my personal work is not a program of InterPlay or its non-profit, Body Wisdom, Inc. I am proud to have cofounded InterPlay with Phil Porter, an active, creative approach to unlocking the wisdom of the body applied around the world. For me InterPlay is a spiritual practice that helps me maintain my creative health in my five birthrights– movement, voice, story, stillness, and interpersonal connection.
Twenty-six creative forms and ideas keep me playful, healthy, truthful, peaceful, and resilient in community.
