Events & Trainings

These are opportunities to study directly and personally with Coquelicot. She blends knowledge and theory with direct embodied experience. Her trainings will profoundly deepen your relationship with yourself and change and how you perceive and understand the world around you. They will enhance you personally and professionally. If you are looking for principles and practices that you can take into your life, to create lasting change through continued mindfulness, then this will be a rich and rewarding learning environment for you.

Events & Trainings

Upcoming Trainings with Coquelicot are opportunities for integrative exploration balanced between movement, body sensing activities and cognitive "content" components. The focus in our trainings is the relationship between the development of meaning and the development of movement, somatic learning principles, inner authority/self- sovereignty and mutual connection in a spirit of curiosity and inquiry.

Other Available Workshops are a list of available classes that Coquelicot offers. She will organize a workshop in the Grass Valley/Nevada City area for anyone who is interested. Contact her to request one or a series of classes. Classes will also be available online in the future through teleconferencing and tele-seminars. Future offerings in other locations will be announced as they become available.

Upcoming Sponsored Trainings are trainings that Body Dynamics and Interfaith Interface of AIWP sponsor because of mutual resonance and the interesting & unusual topics of the trainings.

Recommended Trainings by Others are hyperlinks to trainings that have informed my education and I would encourage anyone to see if they wish to explore further.

"I was not outside the notes, I was in the music as one is in the ocean or beneath a waterfall; it swelled about me in an immensity of sound. And the blueness! Everywhere blue, a pure, cerulean blue; each bit of space, each particle of blue, radiating its individual music, a universal outpouring, an immensity of symphonic light. A noteless, unfragmented melody, a wellspring of music, undivided sound encompassing every note, every chord. And true! So true that one was dazzled by its absoluteness -- one taste of it and everything was real, beautiful, pure, that: concrete divinity. A single, golden vibration, an immense welling up, a plenitude of song which filled the lungs as if one were drinking in the very heavens, as if the music were space, the sound of the infinite, and one expanded, burgeoned forth in that singing blueness.... And the joy! Or perhaps primarily the joy. An abundance, an effusion of being which created the music, the light, the space, the whole world full of objects -- a single joyful essence which sang of itself, the grandiose outpouring of a single note like myriad violins merging in an apotheosis, like myriad voices swooping on azure wings -- or perhaps the lone pure call of a flute, lost in the eternal, welling forth to trace a single quivering mark on the blue waters of the world.... Inexplicably that."
- Satprem, By the Body of the Earth

"Dear God: Please untie the knots that are in my mind, my heart and my life. Remove the have nots, the can nots and the do nots that I have in my mind. Erase the will nots, may nots, might nots that may find a home in my heart. Release me from the could nots, would nots and should nots that obstruct my life. And most of all, Dear God, I ask that you remove from my mind, my heart and my life, all of the 'am nots' that I have allowed to hold me back, especially the thought that I am not good enough. Amen." - Author unknown, The Knots Prayer

"For love in a time of conflict: When the gentleness between you hardens and you fall out of your belonging with each other, May the depths you have reached hold you still. When no true word can be said, or heard, and you mirror each other in the script of hurt, When even the silence has become raw and torn, May you hear again an echo of your first music. When the weave of affection starts to unravel and anger begins to sear the ground between you, Before this weather of grief invites the black seed of bitterness to find root, May your souls come to kiss. Now is the time for one of you to be gracious, To allow a kindness beyond thought and hurt, Reach out with sure hands To take the chalice of your love, and carry it carefully through this echoless waste Until this winter pilgrimage leads you Toward the gateway to spring." John O'Donohue, A Book of Blessings, (2008)

"The body is our medium for being in relationship with our environment (a physical body for a physical environment, a dream body for a dream environment, and so on). But embodiment is relationship. As we mature, we shift from sensing our body as a solid something to sensing it as something far from static, something through which we are revealed and expressed, no matter in what state we may be.

When lost in thought, we have no body.

When attention is brought to thought, we have a body.

When attention is brought to sensation, we shift from having a body to being in a body.

When attention is brought to perception, we shift from being in a body to being present as a body.

When attention is brought to our overall presence, our innate wholeness of being, we shift from being present as a body to simply being, neither separate from nor identified with our body.

As we shift from having a body to being a body to simply Being, we find ourselves not just coming home, but sitting at the hearth. In consciously and responsibly embodying all that we are, we become increasingly intimate with all that is. We may still be a relatively solid somebody, but we're now no longer so much in our own way.

Spiritual bypassing will have lost its appeal for us. We will know right to our core that real freedom is not limited by its limitations. Disembodiment will cease to be an option.

The body electric, the body speaking its mind, the body as spirit, will -- if we allow it -- blast through our psychoemotional slumber, bringing us into a more integral wholeness until we clearly are in body what we are in spirit. "
