Slow, Saucy and Sacred: Micro Partner Dance Workshop

Join Wren LaFeet and guests for a deep dive into micro dance technique, subtle listening and the cultivation of non-attached pleasure.

Navigating the intimacy of close embrace with respect and honoring of boundaries, responding with instantaneous precision and flowing effortlessly between initiation (lead) and response (follow) will all be addressed in depth. We'll employ Taoist breathing techniques to harness our energy, explore how satisfying simplicity of movement can be and relish the luscious richness available within the pause.

"...the only thing needed for magic to occur is some form of structure and an open mind." - Gene Keys, Richard Rudd

The container of Cocréa has been crafted to support transformation. As such it relies on a delicate interplay of trust and surrender. Whether we're dancing in the polarity of lead and follow, or switching back and forth between these dynamics, there is always an exchange of energy taking place. Our job is to listen deeper than we ever have, to ourselves, to our partner, to the music, to our connection with the earth, and respond with openness - with the fluidity of water - to the changes in the structure within which we dance.

This micro workshop will place an emphasis on how we notice and move with awareness of the saucier sensual energies as they arise within a dance, and to hold these energies in their highest possible light. Our sexual energy is the energy of creation; our vital life force. As such, we will be moving in the realm of the sacred with our dance, and with our touch.

Creating a container imbued with the feeling of safety is my primary concern so that every body can feel comfortable and excited to be exploring and inviting more pleasure in their dance with the Sacred Other.

Wren teaches partner dance internationally and primarily on the west coast of North America as a practice for mindful, authentic living, enlivening communities with his signature modality, Cocréa. He is a celebrated TEDx speaker, featured author in "ReInhabiting the Village" - a comprehensive volume of collected works outlining best practices for building regenerative community, and ardent proponent of pioneering a new renaissance through co-created movement, authentic connection and consensual touch. As a cultural architect, his facilitation aims to aid others to "create themselves as brave spaces" for others to express and embody joy through the synthesis of structured social partner dance, conscious movement, authentic relating, sensuality as spirituality and luscious dance music. Cultivating partnered movement as a form of dance and sense therapy, his practice focuses on trusting our bodies with the music and our partner to catalyze elevating the whole being into higher vibrational states. Dancing professionally off and on since 1999, teaching since 2008, and partner dancing virtually since he was in the womb, Wren's work is deeply influenced by nature, relationship, mindfulness and messing up, and has been praised as "the next evolution of conscious dance."
