Belonging Book Launch - Victoria | Church of Truth | Friday, 26. January 2018

On Friday, January 26th, Toko-pa Turner, internationally acclaimed writer and dreamworker will launch her debut book, Belonging: Remembering Ourselves Home at The Church of Truth in Victoria at 7:00 pm.

Toko-pa will be reading from her long-anticipated book on exile and the search for belonging. “The world has never been more connected, yet people are lonelier than ever. Whether we feel unworthy, alienated, or anxious about our place in the world — the absence of belonging is the great silent wound of our times. Most people think of belonging as a mythical place, and they spend a lifetime searching for it in vain. But what if belonging isn’t a place at all? What if it’s a skill that has been lost or forgotten?”

With her signature depth and eloquence, Toko-pa maps a path to Belonging from the inside out. Drawing on myth, stories, and dreams, she takes us into the origins of our estrangement, reframing exile as a necessary initiation into authenticity. Then she shares the competencies of belonging: a set of ancestral practices to heal our wounds and restore true belonging to our lives and to the world.

“Certain people invite you into an experience that will alter your world view forever. They have gone so deep, searched so thoroughly, traversed territories that most would shun, and then they return and lay their soul at your feet. Toko-pa is one such individual and this book is her soul made visible." -- Clare Dubois, International Speaker and Founder of TreeSisters

Attendees on January 26th will enjoy an enchanting evening with Toko-pa, who will read several excerpts from the book, followed by a Q&A session and a book signing.

Toko-pa Turner is a Canadian writer, teacher, and dreamworker who blends the mystical tradition of Sufism with a Jungian approach to dreams. In 2001 she founded the Dream School, from which hundreds of students have since graduated. Sometimes called a Midwife of the Psyche, Toko-pa’s work focuses on restoring the feminine, tending our reciprocity with nature, honouring grief, and making beauty through ritual practice.

The January 26th reading is a free event and Belonging will be available for sale at a special price for locals. For more information about the book, please visit
