What?

InterPlay is easy, fun, and life changing. It is based in a series of incremental “forms” that lead participants to movement and stories, silence and song, ease and amusement. In the process, we discover the wisdom in ourselves and our communities.

Why?

Because you want to feel better, to find a healthy moral compass, to be wise, alive, and more creatively engaged. InterPlay taps movement, voice, stillness, and stories-our birthright practices-to help people connect to themselves and others.

What Others Are Saying

“Many of our clients are stuck in some way, unable to “get moving”, others can’t seem to stop moving!   InterPlay is a way to practice movement and stillness from the “bottom-up”, that is, non-verbally, experimentally, playfully.  InterPlay widens our repertoire of skills beyond emotion and cognition.  And when we remember our own ability to move and play, we provide an example for our clients.  Sometimes learning can be fun!” Martha Osterberg

LICSW

“InterPlay has allowed me to access my own body wisdom through movement, play and non-verbal connection with others.  In turn I have been able to bring my experience to each psychotherapy sessions and be present for each client in a more embodied manner.  For me, InterPlay provides an experience where I can integrate mind-body psychotherapy, meditation and spiritual practice, movement and meaningful interpersonal connection.  InterPlay has allowed me to deepen my experience of myself, then in turn sit with my clients in a more embodied, connected manner.” Denise Hanna Bisanz

“Kat Brown has been an amazing source of joyful energy and patient teaching.  I appreciate her focused and creative vision for whatever we are working on.  It is clear that she puts a lot of hard work, time and thought into her lessons.  She never disappoints.” Jennifer Rico
