Spring will come to sweep away the snow, to put an end to the need for prophets and the old maps, to birth a new day incising hope and joy on the hearts of the distraught.

Of course the founders of InterPlay have a much longer definition, that in brief, is a system and practice that allows you to lean slowly at your own pace to love being an embodied being by bringing into one whole Mind/Body/Spirit/Heart.
