COCRÉA FACILITATOR TRAINING

Coming in Spring, 2022

 

 

 

The Invitation

 

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?

 

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.

 

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?

 

Cocréa founder, Wren LaFeet has found his purpose and passion in synthesizing over 22 years of physical performance,  improvisational movement techniques and explorative study of authentic relationships.

Integrating practices from Taoism, Buddhism and the ecstatic love paths, Cocréa is a holistic embodiment practice for cultivating a full and vital life.

Bringing together aspects that resonate as Truth from various schools of thought that have come to similar conclusions, this journey ultimately invites the union of heart, mind, body and spirit.

 

The Goal

 

To empower and enable you to fully inhabit yourself and your genius;

to deliver your unique message as an empowered, embodied leader.

This is not strictly about mastering the dance techniques 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/or spiritual practice.
  • Embracing dance as medicine and stoked to become a leader in an embodied revolution.
