Life is a rhythm of work, play, and rest… and if you are like most of us you’re probably a little lacking in play and celebration!

Through InterPlay forms and practices you can:

  • playfully integrate body, mind, and spirit
  • make room for your authentic self to breathe and grow
  • discover new talents and gifts

InterPlay simply and easily creates life-giving connection and community.

Come join us as we change the world one play at a time!

The Seattle InterPlay community’s many teachers offer classes and events at various times during the year. We also invite guest teachers from all over the world to share their gifts with our local community.

Most classes and events are multi-level and beginners are always welcome.

For those with advanced willingness to play we have a vibrant, on-going Play Group that meets weekly and provides a great space to practice.

For people who aren’t satisfied with simply dabbling in InterPlay, and want to jump in with both feet and a smile, we offer the InterPlay Life Practice Program.
