Nytke in the Woods - Conscious Co-creation for Performing Artists


5 day intensive to uncover the collective creative potential for co-creating performances! 

For the second year in a row Nytke in the Woods is opening its doors for artists from the 20th to 25th of July! If you feel that in traditional productions you are not contributing with your unique creativity, or you want to birth your authentic creation but feel stuck, we would like to invite you to explore conscious co-creation!   

Conscious co-creation is a process where a group of artists expands their awareness to tap into the unified field, from which all reality emerges.
In this field everything is interconnected and one. All future creations are present in this field in a potential form. The group receives information for a performance, which wants to be born. The challenge then is to bring this information 
from the unconscious into conscious awareness! In a first step the information can be brought into the language of the soul i.e. into symbols, colors, imagery, music and movement. Then the group translates it through embodiment, systemic mapping, improvisation and collective meaning making into a performance. The tricky thing in this process is, that by opening ourselves to the unconscious also our shadows surface. Like in every hero's journey the group members will need to face and transform these individual and collective shadows, which will help them grow as individuals and as a team and bring out their "gold".

We tailor made this process 

  • to ensures that the creative material that comes up is innovative, 

  • each individual contributes with their uniqueness, 

  • individual and collective shadows are addressed

  • and the key impact, which the performance wants to achieve, and its value for the audience is made conscious

Our aim is to get you towards a level of performance in which you can experience oneness with yourself, others and nature, acting as one in service for the whole ecosystem in a playful and joyful way. We aim to offer a space where you may express your individual creativity in a group setting and bring your performance into a form that will generate sustainable income.



See how we did it!

In January this year our co-creation team has applied this process to create a performance. We would like to invite you to see our results in a free screening of a short film and documentary on the 6th of July 2021, 7pm (Finland time). 

This will be a presentation about our work followed by a Q&A. Please send us PM, and we will send you a Zoom- link for the event.

Why is It Important? 

Our world is experiencing divides on many levels - we are disconnected from who we are, from each other and from nature. This separation has created a world full of inequalities, destruction and suffering. Our mission is to help artists to transcend these divides and become a force for good. Artists can become a vessel for life itself and move their audience when they are on stage. In a domino effect they can help to create a more connected and whole world.

What is Nytke in the Woods? 

Nytke in the Woods this year is an intensive for co-creating artistic performances in a conscious way, which brings out our uniqueness, our collective creative potential, provides a safe space to embrace and transform our "human messiness" and helps us to get a step closer towards sustainable income.


How was our version of conscious co-creation born? 

In January 2018 the seed for the CoCreationCenter emerged in the form of a symbol. 


n 2019 a small team started to explore this "symbol". After 25 meetings we understood that it was a symbol for conscious co-creation in a team setting and we knew enough to apply it in a real life examples. The first one was with Sirius Dance Collective in Malta to help them to co-create a performance on the theme of human and artist. The second one was to co-create 4 zoom calls for people that due to the pandemic had lost or were not happy with their jobs and helped them to find clues within themselves to create a more fulfilling work.
Only after a major reshuffle of the team, deep diligent work on our foundations - our core, purpose, direction, values and vision - refinement of the methodology, creation of a performance and application of conscious marketing, our team is now ready to offer what we found on our journey.
Like in every hero's journey, the hero has to return to the world and share his/her gifts.
Now it is your turn to be the hero! Nytke in the Woods is an opportunity to bring your uniqueness out into the world together with others to make the world a better place!

What is the transformational experience we would like to offer you? We would like to bring you

  • from not knowing how to contribute your own creativity, to feeling confident in your own creative channel 

  • from not knowing how to co-create an innovative performance from the collective unconscious (from nothing) to an experiential knowledge and understanding of the process

  • from outside directed creation to inside self-organised and self-led creation

  • from feeling stuck to embracing restrictions on the way as part of the process 

  • from creating from a limited awareness to creating from an expanded awareness

  • from only bringing the performing artist to the creative process to bringing the whole human

  • from feeling pressure and expectations to produce to allowing the process to unfold and flow

  • from manifesting something nice, acceptable, sell-able to manifesting something truthful with impact

  • from judging yourself and sticking to known aesthetics to accepting yourself and allowing new aesthetics to emerge in a playful way

  • from perceiving and using nature as an external element to being an integral part of it and co-creating with nature

Who should join?

Do you want to use your artistic skills and talents to create a unique performance that serves others and at the same time brings you abundance, professional and personal growth and all this not alone, but with others?
Do you sometimes feel frustrated that you have not yet managed to combine successfully artistic career, money and spirituality?
If these feel like a YES to you, we invite you to join 5 days intensive conscious co-creation at Nytke in the Woods!

About CoCreationCenter and CoCreationTeam

CoCreationCenter is a team of professionals that offer conscious co-creation to help individuals to unfold their human potential in a team setting, flow together and direct their creative energies in service of the well-being of all to create a more whole world that transcends the spiritual divide (we are not connected with our Selves), social divide (we are not connected with our fellow humans or other living beings) and ecological divide (we are not connected with nature). 

Our vision is to help humanity transcend duality through continuous co-creative processes, that operate like a torus flow, an integrative dance of our inside and outside, individual and collective, human and nature, unfolding and enfolding, embodied experience and dis-identified learning, collective traumas and collective gold; a collective hero's journey that elevates our consciousness to oneness.
