Welcome to Embrace
We invite you to partake in a lovingly curated movement space that encourages a community of folx who express themselves and find nourishment through delicious feeling, intentional partner dance.
There are many spaces to dance by yourself. We long for the connection available when we consciously and intentionally choose to share coherent movement with another human (or humans).
There are many spaces to move energy in a totally organic, free-form manner. We relish the structure offered by the firm, supple frame of another body showing up to co-create deliciousness with us.
We welcome the surrender required to create something beautiful that is larger than the sum of ourself and our partner within a community of mindful, expressive and courteous individuals.
Our invitations are manifold and our desire is the potent sense of connection that we (as the organizers of this space) know and have experienced is possible when we say yes within a strong field of agreements.
We invite clear eyes and auric fields!
Come sober. Embrace and the practice supporting it, Cocréa, is about practicing authentic relating and holds consent as central to its teachings. It’s challenging (or impossible) to obtain consent when altered. As fun as it is, this is not that party. Let’s get high on endorphins, eye contact, breath, movement, touch and dank, stinky beats.
We invite evolution and growth!
Come to the workshop. We love to dance and we love to be together in community, and we’ll be the first to acknowledge there is no better place to learn than on the dance floor in the moment. Except MAYBE in a space designed specifically to support you upleveling your Jedi bad-assery. Join Wren and our occasional guest teachers for an hour of psycillium activating, community soil amending somatic inquiry into epic presence and attunement and watch the garden of your dance burst and bloom with coherent connection.
We invite ecstatic play and bliss!
Come to get the funk down. Cocréa is a practice space for the dance of life. We welcome all expressions of your being, of your freedom, of your intimacy. We welcome you getting into your pleasure, we welcome you getting into your grief, we welcome you releasing deeply into your joy. We create an agreement field that we’re all going to show up all the way and play full out while respecting the integrity and harmony of our shared container.
We invite punctuality!
Come on time if you want to dance. This will be a closed container event. Doors will close at 7:15 and space is limited. Please get your ticket in advance or arrive early for the workshop to guarantee your spot.
We strongly encourage you to read these community guidelines hosted on Cocréa’s website as a way of crafting our agreement field and shared culture.
Cocréa Community Guidelines: https://dancecocrea.com/about/community-guidelines/
They have been curated and amended over many years of hosting events of numerous sizes and intentions, working with experts in navigating many kinds of spaces varying in diversity, social justice educators, somatic psychotherapists and consent educators. We hope you’ll find resonance with them, and if you don’t, we hope they spark curiosity for you to consider leaning forward into the discomfort that causes growth, rather than aversion, and that you’ll also bring your differences forward for discussion with us so we can grow and evolve as well.
