Event description
A 6 workshop series twice a month: Weaving our Inner Liberation using InterPlay explorations through our social beliefs and embodied wisdom.

About this event

Throughout all of our life, what we experience intentionally or unintentionally shapes our brain and behaviour. As we explore and make sense of our experiences, we get closer to our inner truth.

We can shape our relationships and our wellbeing through changing our brain by playing together using the rich resource of InterPlay and sharing our many diverse stories and experiences.

The rhythm of divergence and convergence across social issues in our world that impact us individually and collectively invites us to strengthen our roots and awakening of our senses, deepening listening, and connecting to wellbeing in all dimensions.

Committed to bringing Race and Equity awareness, Masankho Banda and Livier Ayon embark on an experiment offering a space for self-expression and listening with intent as a form of call to restoration and compassion. With a combination of styles to stimulate self-inquiry, story sharing, and body interaction, they invite depth within play and body wisdom as a path for self-awareness and shared resilience. Find diversity, commonality, companionship... to make sense of our relationships with ourselves and with the world around us.

These exploration series involve 5 workshops over a period of 2.5 months:

Noticing

First, we notice and explore how our brain reacts to influence around us. What is ingrained in our neurobiology human making that influences what we ingrain as familiar, as normal? How did our upbringing give us access and contact with certain situations and groups, and not with others?

Wondering

Next, we become curious and wonder experiences that shaped how we see the world now. How our indispensable needs for belonging defy our critical need for being who we are? What configurations and socializations are familiar to you? How do you identify yourself now?

Pause/Reflect

Then, we pause and immerse in deeper reflection on the shaping of our experiences. How do we gradually come to make decisions and take action? How do we build our beliefs? What is the piece within us that we can nourish in ourselves with more self-understanding and extend to the relationships we have?

Collective Wisdom I

What do we know from dancing with our struggles and sharing mixed realities? As we come further from our inner exploration into sharing more of who we are in the world, how do we show up, what systems and patterns in our society (and in the larger world) are we bringing our power and energy towards? How does power and normalized culture is living in us and what do we want to do about it?

Collective Wisdom II

Our inner liberation builds on increased ability to move in unison as a large body, resilient, willing to try again and again, trusting, harvesting from our collective body wisdom. From there, how do we want to live? What do we want to keep? What ways of relationship can we nourish? What are we ready for?

Integrating and Closing

Our last session is dedicated to bring it all together, explore any areas we want to deepen into, and create a transition into how to use what we learned into our personal life.

We will explore:

Socialization

Attachment

Identity

Social beliefs

Social norms

Patriarchy

Self-inquiry

Self-compassion

Let’s prepare to build a vision of the world we know in our hearts, yes still strange, imperfect, and wondrous, together…

Do you want to know more about InterPlay?

InterPlay is an active and creative approach to unlocking the wisdom of your body.

But it's more than that. It's the feeling of ease in the body. It's the heart-to-heart connection. It's the spark of creative spontaneity. It's all the feelings honored and held: joy, sorrow, giddiness, surprise, trust as well as the release of anger, fear, anxiety. Because only your body knows what your body needs.

To learn more, visit the InterPlay website, and watch this video :-)
