The InterPlay® Life Practice Program
The Life Practice Program is an active, creative way to unlock the wisdom of your body. By maximizing ease and minimizing stress learn how to shape your life the way you want it to be. InterPlay is easy, incremental and affirming and focuses on building strengths through community, relationships and having fun.
In The Life Practice Program you will learn the core elements of the InterPlay system; ideas and practices that help you move from where you are to where you want to be. InterPlay will teach you how to pay attention to all levels of your experience - mind, heart, body and spirit - to see how you can thrive when all parts are integrated.
Through playing, practice and personal support you will learn the many ways in which you can apply InterPlay to your life and work - to increase community, ease, grace, energy and joy and to create more choices and empowerment in your own life. Who knew that taking opportunities to creatively express your experiences, discerning your personal goals and desires and going for what you want could be so delightful?
The Life Practice Program is a pre-requisite for undertaking The InterPlay Leader Training Program which is an additional training necessary for accreditation to lead and teach InterPlay.
In 2019, The Life Practice Program will be offered in Canberra, led by Biff Ward and Trish Watts.
