In this 4-week course you will be learning the Cornerstones of Dreamwork.
The next session of Dreamwalking takes place from March 23rd - April 21 2018
Using an intimate blend of art, theory and practice, dreamers learn to understand the structure and language of dreams & develop the tools necessary to begin bridging their wisdom back to waking life. This series is excellent for beginner and intermediate dreamers.
Dreamwork is an art as well as a science. In this class, we learn to approach dreams in the same way we would a work of literature, film or painting; appreciating its mechanics as well as its poetry. We will learn how to recognize the dramatic structure of a dream, isolate its key elements and bridge their symbolism back to waking life.
Learning to actively dream involves finding balance between the light and dark sides of our nature. In this class we will pay special attention to the Shadow and nightmares, learning how to read the warning signs of imbalanced attitudes. We will explore the redeeming medicine of dark dreams and the importance of finding the light contained within them.
Each of us contains both masculine and feminine qualities within. It is only our gender conditioning that engrains a bias towards one or the other. What results, is an impoverishment of our opposite-gender qualities. In this class, we will learn how to integrate both through dreamwork, so that we can recover our wholeness as individuals, correspondingly healing our larger community.
Dreaming is a kind of archaeological process where we enter the landscape of the soul to unearth the forgotten or undiscovered parts of our selves. As we begin to do away with unconscious, habitual behaviour, we awaken to a new way of being in the world. We begin to walk the dream – turning inspiration into action. In this class, we will learn techniques for engaging our co-creative abilities in both dreaming and waking realities.

Doing Dreamwalking with Toko-pa has been one of the best things I have ever done in my life. I have always been pulled towards dreams, but previous to meeting Toko-pa I had little insight into them. The class material Toko-pa shared with us worked at a very deep level of knowledge and consciousness. I felt that I was supported, at all times, in exploring at my own rhythm the levels of the dreams. In a short time I learned to practice dreaming in a fruitful manner. As the classes went by and new material was given, I felt I was acquiring in a natural way the language and the decoding needed to make the most of what dreams offer to us towards our waking life. I felt the group formed organically and the bases of it were love openness and generosity. This work is a precious gift. Through this work I have been able to connect with my ancestry, advance my personal healing and believe in my instinct. Mostly important, this brought me towards being able to handle the shadow and the light, realizing that it is part of the same process and that the more we give space for our own wildness without any apology, the more we are close to the universe, and it is there that we can construct build create and dream new ones. I can’t wait for Dreamwalking 2 to happen. It is an experience everyone should get the opportunity to embrace! So thank you Toko-pa for your generosity and your knowledge that you so lovingly share. With love honesty and light, Ambra Bergamasco
It has been really good to be here. And it shows that when we stick together things change under our eyes and fear dissolves under the soft fingers of love power acceptance compassion and generosity.

You have helped me obliterate old ways of thinking and helped catapult me into a whole new understanding of my spirit and my place in the universe. - RG
Through this amazing course, and with the support of you special women, I have gained such profound clarity into what my next steps should look like as I embark on a new path that will fit me just right. Alongside this clarity, I have also birthed a new openness to facing the attitudes and habits that are likely to hold me back as I walk this new path. - E
One of the main gifts from this course for me has been in the finding of a deep respect for the stories that have been coursing through my psyche all along – deep, authentic, the old and the hatching. What a vast and powerful resource this is to help us move through life with more depth and authenticity. - E
