NEXT WORKSHOP

Embracing Flow

Portland, OR

This Playshop is designed to bring you confidently out of your head and into your body. Ultimately, releasing any attachment to the form and “how it SHOULD look” is the desire. We create spiral dynamic movement to unite the left and right hemispheres of the brain and offer the practitioner an experience of timelessness and coherence with another.

At its core, Cocréa is a practice of adapting to life’s emergent changes through a process of allowing, accepting and embracing. Cultivating intuition and feeling to guide the partnership, our centers and frames to support it, Cocréa celebrates our ability to embody joy through being in a body moving in harmony with other bodies.

Weaving threads of consciousness, culture and intimacy, the practice focuses on how movement can enhance and expand relationships into a deeply connected, honest and powerful tool for personal, interpersonal and collective healing and transformation.

Where Discipline and Surrender Overlap…

 

…that’s where Flow emerges.

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.

Embodying Change

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.

Dancing the Divide

Port Townsend, WA

A Partnered Movement Workshop for All Disciplines
 
This two day workshop is designed to bring form and formless together to play and practice the art of meeting and joining each other. Structured and organic play support our exploration of the bridges between our different movement practices and the worlds they create.
 
DATE AND TIME
April 27th & 28th
12pm – 4pm
 
LOCATION
Madrona MindBody Institute
200 Battery Way, Bldg 310
Port Townsend, WA
 
FULL DESCRIPTION
This two day workshop is designed to bring form and formless together to play and practice the art of meeting and joining each other. Soul Motion practitioners – this is an opportunity to give dynamic structure to your Dance Communion and discover powerful tools for crafting your personal space for even more powerful connection. Fusion dancers – this is an opportunity to explore your solo dance expression and refine your own movement within partnership as well as let go of any preconceived form or notion of how it should look. No experience with either of these dance practices is necessary. The aim is to come together in one room to see what we can learn from each other and have fun in the process.
 
Cocréa was originally imagined as a bridging modality for dancers from social partner dance circles and ecstatic/conscious dance circles to meet on any dance floor and find connection. It has grown into an intentional, holistic modality that empowers the individual to grow resilient within community and society and liberate expression within relationship; nurturing authentic connection and right relationship to our sensual and sexual nature; honoring and relating well with our environment. It is about exploring our connection to that inexplicable sense that we are part of a much bigger whole through this miraculous vessel of our bodies.
 
Wren LaFeet brings 21+ years of physical exploration and experience in the performing and somatic arts to his facilitation. Tools envisioned for this space include Suzuki physical theater, Viewpoints, Blues Fusion, mindful movement practices for generating collective intelligence and Wren’s signature style of synthesis that guides participants through Cocréa’s map of different Realms of Connection: Self, Earth, Music, Sacred Other, Community and Whole.
 
We are separate and that is absolutely necessary to create a nourished whole.

“The first law of the rebel – listen to your inner voice…

… no matter WHAT the consequences.”

Richard Rudd, Gene Key 43

Thanks to Wren I began rediscovering a part of me that I had thought long dead and buried. He challenged me to face some fears and helped me feel safe enough to do so.
