|I could talk about some amazing |
InterPlay Life Practice Program participants!
Those who’ve done InterPlay with me know one of my favorite forms is “I could talk about.” I often use it at the beginning of a session. We sit in the circle and introduce ourselves and say our name and something we could talk about.
Usually we go around the circle 3 plus times. There are so many things we could talk about: our lives are rich with experience. Sometimes it's difficult for me to listen when someone talks and talks and talks about something (I'm sure I'm sometimes the one talking too much myself...), but I could listen to people share what they could talk about forever.
|I could talk about the tulips in bloom!|
I could talk about being shy and loving structures that help me communicate.
I could talk about my deep curiosity about my fellow human beings.
I could talk about my desire to know and be known.
These little snippets of personal information are so intriguing to me. We learn so much about each other in this exercise.
I could talk about learning that sometimes a few words are just enough.
I could talk about the girls I teach through SynchronicityTheatre sharing themselves so easily through this exercise.
I could talk about creating connections.
Why do I teach InterPlay? I hunger for connections and play gets me connected. Having a stranger become known broadens my world, broadens my heart. It seems the more I connect with others, the more I connect with something essential about myself. InterPlay- what a beautiful gift to give myself, to offer my world.
