COCRÉA FACILITATOR TRAINING

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Are you holding a knowing that the human race could be struggling so much less, yet struggling yourself with how to offer the remedy in your heart and through your body?

Do you anticipate a great shift in human awareness from mental primacy and competition to embodiment and cooperation?

Are you longing to help people access the joy of moving together but feel unsure of your ability to lead groups effectively or that you lack the framework or information to confidently support other’s transformation?

Do you sense a great power within yourself to hold transformational containers but think you lack the practical skills to draw people into them?

 

The Invitation: join a growing global population of conscious, mindful movement facilitators and embodied leaders inspiring people to embrace the pleasure, intelligence and freedom resting in their bodies.

 

 

Over the last 7 years, Cocréa founder, Wren LaFeet has made it his purpose and his passion to synthesize the over 20 years of physical performance and movement improvisation techniques, as well as spiritual practices for embodiment that he has gathered into a holistic practice for living a full and vital life. Synthesizing aspects that resonate as Truth from various schools of thought that have come to similar conclusions, the journey he invites is ultimately one of the heart and spirit.

The Inquiry: How do we craft containers of such impeccable trust that participants feel safe and courageous to have their needed transformation for evolution of the human race?

 

 

The Goal: to empower you and train you to fully inhabit yourself and your genius; to deliver your unique message as an empowered, embodied leader.

This is not strictly about embodying the teachings of Cocréa so you can teach partner dance; it is about liberating the YOU that is burning to give its best and brightest in service to the Whole and equipping you with an epic toolbox to do your soul work.

You are ready for this program if you are:

  • Tired of playing small in the world.
  • In love with dance and want others to experience the joys and benefits of movement together.
  • Ready to make your important contribution to shifting human awareness to value and deeply consider the genius of the body.
  • Hearing your calling to become a movement facilitator and wanting to focus on connection, co-creation, consent and authentic communication.
  • Looking for ways to develop relational, somatic intelligence in your existing practice.
  • A community leader and/or facilitator desiring to generate more coherence within your community.
  • A social dance instructor eager to take your dancing and your teaching beyond technique, style and convention to embracing it as a holistic pathway of healing, relating and spiritual practice.
  • Embracing dance as medicine and stoked to become a leader in an embodied revolution.

 

The training will consist of:

  • Two 5-day in person training intensives
  • Six group calls spaced out over 6 months
  • Six 1-on-1 coaching sessions spaced out over 6 months
  • At least 3 practice sessions to be held with members of your community

Concepts we’ll cover in depth during the 5-Day Immersions:
In addition to focusing on teaching method and techniques for imparting skills such as frame, momentum/inertia, tone, extension and compression, musicality and other concepts important for having connected, coherent dances, we will also work in a number of areas that have proven invaluable in Wren’s facilitation process and pedagogy.

  • Physical theater to develop embodied awareness, strength, versatility and adaptable movement
  • Improvisational theater including storytelling to empower your unique style and presence
  • Vocal training to hone the power of your voice
  • Combining contemplative, mindful meditation and movement practices to embody the holistic intent of this practice
  • Developing your unique movement style and vernacular layered within American vernacular Jazz dance to value, promote and honor the beauty of a dance lineage
  • Analyzing the dynamics of lead and follow energies, the cultural forces that have driven these roles in social partner dance for centuries and why it’s time to redefine them, and how to use the energies within that polarity to create healing, inclusion and equity
  • Understanding consent and how practicing good consent within partner dance is good practice for all relationships ever and how to share it effectively through the medium of dance facilitation
