Jason worked for 5 years at the LAB of St. Paul Public Schools, using theater, poetry and art as tools to support young people to discover their own greatness. Jason thrives in circles creating social justice, reconnecting to the Earth, remembering our bodies, playing, and getting free together. Co-counseling, Resource Generation, and InterPlay are a few tools that help him.
Interplay continues to be a valuable tool of transformation for my life. The gift of being able to unlock the Wisdom of my body is amazing!
