Embracing Flow

Reno, NV

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.

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.

Facilitator

Wren is an internationally recognized somatic permissionary facilitating partner dance as a practice for mindful, authentic living, enlivening communities with his signature modality, Cocréa. His mission to vitalize and inspire the world has instigated numerous Fusion dance communities on the West Coast of North America. Using Cocréa as a method of personal growth and spiritual alignment with right livelihood that places us in right relationship with ourselves, each other, our communities and the Earth, Wren has developed his dance as an emergent, holistic life practice. As a form of movement and sense therapy, as well as social permaculture, his practice focuses on trusting our bodies with the music and our partner to catalyze higher vibrational states, cultivate resilience to change and embody joy through consensual touch and sensual movement.

In addition to earning his BA in Drama and Dance from the University of Washington in 2007, Wren is a TEDx speaker, featured author in “ReInhabiting the Village”, Gene Keys Ambassador, certified Danyasa™ Inspired yoga instructor and enthusiastic leader in pioneering a new renaissance revolutionizing embodied awareness into a planetary age. He is recognized as a master in his craft and named “the next voice in conscious dance” by Soul Motion faculty member and founder of Madrona Mindbody, Aletia Alvarez.

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.

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.

Cocréa Weekend Immersion

Salt Lake City, UT

Join Wren LaFeet in an experiential embodiment practice based in the forms of many of the world’s social partner dance techniques, while inviting and allowing an easeful flow of ideas to emerge through listening and responding to the moment. Familiar techniques woven together in this practice include contact improvisation, blues, tango, fusion, and more!

As we hone this dynamic, kinetic toolbox, we emphasize connection, communication and presence between two people within a community of others. Allowing intuition and feeling to guide the partnership, their centers and frames to support it, Cocréa celebrates our ability to embody profound joy through being in a body moving in harmony with another body.

Weaving the threads of collaboration, cross-pollination and consciousness, the practice focuses on how dance can enhance and expand relationships into a deeply connected, honest and powerful tool for personal, interpersonal and collective transformation.
