InterPlay In EveryDay Life
July, 13, 2017
BART Flash Mob from West Oakland to Civic Center

Let’s BIBO on BART. During a BART ride from Downtown Berkeley to the Civic Center Station in San Francisco, I’ll lead simple InterPlay tools to support embodiment, connection and play. We will BIBO. We will follow and lead and we’ll definitely shake a few things out. What happens when we open up, feel and connect in spaces where we often draw in?

During the first portion of the ride, we will feel, be and touch – noticing our body, our environment and each other.

We will InterPlay between the West Oakland and Embarcadero BART stops – roughly an 8-minute ride. We will then share in pairs during the last portion of the ride to the Civic Center Station.

Those who are interested are then invited to walk from Civic Center to the San Francisco Shambhala Center for Meditation and Discussion lead by Pearl Ubungen on the gentrification and displacement of peoples in San Francisco. This program begins at 7:30.


Board the Second Car of the Millbrae Train Departing at the following times:
Downtown Berkeley: 6:40 p.m.
Ashby: 6:42 p.m.
MacArthur: 6:46 p.m.
19th Street: 6:49 p.m.

a time for joyWhen you do things from your soul, you feel a river moving in you, a joy. —Jalaluddin Rumi

Our joy is a form of power.
It guides us to who we really are.
It helps us see what is actually possible.
When we reconnect with joy, we have more capacity for navigating the impossible.
The world needs our joy.

Within each of us, a river of joy resides. Sometimes it flows freely, and sometimes, because of the many challenges we face in society, it is frozen. In this class for both seasoned InterPlayers and first timers we will use movement, storytelling and song to reconnect to the goodness that flows through each of us and discover how lightness and laughter are serious tools for creating a more just and inclusive world.

If you’re shy, “not a dancer” or the word “play” makes you nervous, we especially extend an invitation to you. Please join us and discover how good it feels to be in a space that only requires that you be yourself.

This class aspires to offer:
• A sense of possibility
• Practical tools for more ease
• Play, fun and reflection
• Belief in the power of joy
• Music that you can’t not move to
