with Phil Porter, Ginny Going & Tom Henderson
The Secrets of Leading InterPlay is a multi-day workshop and a core component of the InterPlay Leader Training Program that leads to becoming a certified InterPlay leader. It is open to those who have completed or are in the process of completing the InterPlay Life Practice Program and have enrolled in the InterPlay Leader Training Program.
The Secrets of Leading provides an overview of the InterPlay® system and covers the underlying structure and philosophy of InterPlay. How are the forms taught? How do they work together? What is the ultimate outcome or effect of using InterPlay forms? How do you decide which forms to use at what times? How do you deal with people you find challenging? The workshop includes presentation, interaction, and play.
Thursday 7:00-9:30 p.m.
Friday 9 a.m.-5 p.m.
Saturday 9 a.m.-3 p.m.

As a recovering serious person, I consider InterPlay my 12-step program and my life practice for having more ease and grace. I’ve worn a variety of vocational hats in my life and currently describe myself as a community artist, bodyspirit mentor and InterPlay leader. I love offering people the “big body” tools of InterPlay for telling their stories, especially people on the margins of our communities. I am also passionate about embodied spirituality, engaging people in prayer and worship forms that include and honor the body through movement, stories and song. With my partner and husband Tom Henderson, I teach and lead retreats in a variety of settings.
Tom is a certified InterPlay leader, community artist, organization development consultant and retired pharmaceutical chemist. With his wife, Ginny Going, he is co-owner of Colleagues, a business dedicated to enabling individuals and organizations to thrive. Ginny and Tom also co-direct Off the Deep End Ensemble, an InterPlay performance company founded in 1997.
Phil is one of the founders of InterPlay. He is a teacher, performer, writer, and organizer. With Cynthia Winton-Henry he is the co-founder of WING IT! Performance Ensemble, and has written several books, some in collaboration with Cynthia, including Having It All: Body, Mind, Heart & Spirit Together Again at Last and The Slightly Mad Rantings of a Body Intellectual Part One. Phil is particularly interested in the use of InterPlay in organizational life, and believes that InterPlay can be a powerful tool to create communities of diversity and peace.
