Curious to learn more about the development of Cocréa? Watch Founder, Wren LaFeet’s TEDxTalk below.
Through the practice of Cocrea, I have learned more about myself and the limitations I put on myself, in order to better counteract them. I don’t give myself enough credit for my abilities and am often hindered by lack of confidence. Cocrea gives me that confidence to explore, and trust, and be in a community where everyone is in support of each other, and knows how to ask for help and support.
We envision a world in which everyone has access to a living syllabus of empowering tools for embodied relating which honor the present truth of each being. Through practicing with this ever evolving toolbox of Cocréa, we achieve the intimate relationships we most desire in coherence and harmony with our loved ones, our communities, our planet and ourselves.

Producer and Facilitator
A dancer in the Fusion social partner dance movement since it began, Wren’s dancing helps defines fusion as an emergent aesthetic dance form. Fueled by his curiosity in spirituality, the body, global community, the natural world and relationships, and guided by his devotion to love and the idea of the Beloved, partner dance has served as the vehicle for his inquiry and understanding. He has inspired the formation of multiple fusion dance communities on the west coast of North America, and teaches partner dance internationally as a practice for mindful, authentic living, enlivening communities with his signature modality, Cocréa. His facilitation encourages individuals to create themselves as safer spaces for the embodiment of the full range of human expression. Promoting dance as medicine, spirituality and salve for our modern ailments of disconnection and alienation, his practice insists we trust our bodies with the music and our partner to catalyze elevating our whole being into higher vibrational states.
Working with the holographic overview of humanity provided by the Gene Keys and combining its contemplative practice with his own somatic exploration and intuitive listening through the body, as well as his study of human conflict through theater, Wren empowers individuals and communities to dance with joy, helps free insights locked in the body, coaches people to more easily access their sensuality and even on privileged occasion supports the healing of chronic disease. Wren’s goal is to support people into right relationship with the moment; to listen and respond appropriately to what is being called for in service to the highest possible good. He holds a BA in Drama and Dance from the University of Washington, is an author in the published work, “Reinhabiting the Village,” a TEDx speaker and your muse for all things somatic.
