Join us at a weekend where playful souls connect together with movement, voice, story and stillness. Step by step, we’ll offer simple activities and tools to facilitate play, release, connection and expression. You will be invited into an affirming culture where we explore, respond and create together in the moment.

Your hosts for the weekend will be European InterPlay Leaders Collective. For 5 years now we have been working together on a Europe-wide level and we collectively run an annual event as a chance for our communities to play together across borders. We are a multicultural team with a range of strengths and experience – so you can look forward to a weekend of live music, fun and reflection to feed the soul. Leaders for the 2019 untensive are:

Bernhard Staudt (Germany)
Meg MacLeod (Netherlands/USA)
Sophia van Ruth (Netherlands/Australia)
Mairi Campbell (Scotland)

Your home for the weekend will be ‘De Dieken’, a friendly retreat space in Holten, just near Deventer in the Netherlands. Bordering a national park, this restful location will also provide opportunities for walking and ‘hanging’ in nature. www.dedieken.nl

Costs are inclusive of accommodation and food and are on a sliding scale (please note that at this venue you need to bring your own sheets and towel, these are not inclusive and are not to hire).

Please be aware that the lower end of the sliding scale is intended for people with financial challenges. If everyone paid the lower amount then our costs would be covered, but your leaders would receive zero payment.
