Dreamwork and Living into Belonging: An evening with Toko-pa

At the end of our lives, we will have spent almost 7 years dreaming. While we are asleep, complex symbols are narrated together in a sophisticated order to form our private myths. Yet every morning, we wake up with amnesia. This is not because we need an expert to interpret our dreams, but because we have forgotten our mother tongue; the language of symbols. In this evening talk, we will explore the mysterious world of Dreaming, how our psyche generates, grows through and is healed by images. We will explore how we came to be estranged from our dreams and, by following them, come out of the exile we feel into coherence. “Belonging spins itself out from the center of the Self in the form of dreams and synchronicity. These living images call the dreamer forward, step by step into an increasingly intimate conversation with our lives, and embodiment of the soul’s values until we find ourselves anchored in a meaningful life.

Toko-pa Turner is a bestselling author, teacher and dreamworker. Blending the mystical tradition of Sufism in which she was raised with a Jungian approach to dreamwork, she founded the Dream School in 2001 from which hundreds of students have since graduated. Toko-pa has been interviewed by CNN News and BBC Radio and has a community of over 100,000 online readers. She has just released her first book Belonging: Remembering Ourselves Home, which explores the themes of exile and the search for belonging. Sometimes called a Midwife of the Psyche, Toko-pa’s work focuses on restoring the feminine, reconciling paradox and facilitating sacred grief & ritual practice. You can find Toko-pa on her beloved Facebook page 'Dreamwork with Toko-pa' or on her website at toko-pa.com.
