February's DwD workshop will gently immerse you in the easy-body practices of InterPlay, a practice that invites groups and individuals to tap into their artistic authority and connect to their body’s inner wisdom. In InterPlay, you will find new access to your stories, movement and voice. This is an easy way to experience the powerful integration of mind, body, heart and spirit. It is also a quick way to gain community connection.
It will also offer you tools to stimulate creativity and self-awareness in your life.
InterPlay is something that anybody and any body can do—regardless of size, shape, ability, race, culture, gender, sexuality, belief, or nationality. All you need is a little willingness. Expect to laugh, savor and relax. Expect to be surprised by what you can do!
InterPlay is a worldwide community of artist-activists who believe in their ability to change the world through creative expression. InterPlay developed over the last twenty-five years by Phil Porter and Cynthia Winton-Henry. For more info, visit www.interplay.org
Note that this month's DwD opens at 6:30, due to other events on campus. We will plan to end at 9:00, but guests are free to stay to talk with the hosts.
