Since it was founded in 2001, the Dream School has grown from a small, merry gang of misfits, to an international community of dreamers. Through online courses like Dreamwalking and The Dream Lodge, and through the in-the-body retreats and workshops that Toko-pa hosts around the world, thousands of dreamers have found meaningful friendship and belonging in our shared passion for dreaming. Below, please find some of the ways that you might consider joining us, as well as a number of resources to help you strengthen your dreaming practice:
Tips for Dream Recall
With few examples in our midst of powerful & skilled dreamers, some people spend a lifetime thinking that they just don’t dream, or that ‘remembering’ is an ability that doesn’t come naturally to them. But Dreaming is an artform which can be cultivated and practiced. In my experience, it takes very little to get your dreams flowing again. Click here for some of my best tips for dream recall.
Dreamwalking with Toko-pa
Dreamwalking is a rich, 4-week course which explores what I consider the Cornerstones of dreamwork. Using an intimate blend of art, theory and practice, dreamers learn to understand the structure and language of dreams and develop the tools necessary to begin bridging their wisdom back to waking life. This 4-week course is offered seasonally and is excellent for beginner and intermediate dreamers.
Encounters: a podcast series
Encounters is a series of intimate conversations with remarkable women devoted to deep inquiry on the topic of belonging.
For six weeks, we will share these amazing encounters, discuss with others in a private group & journey our way back to Belonging, together. From earthwork to inner work, ritual and storytelling, we explore some of the many forms and faculties of belonging in the places where our disciplines intersect.
Annual Women’s Retreat: Salt Spring Island
Every year women come from all over the world to this magical island in the sea with the shared intention of dreaming together in council. Embodying the Dream is a place of reunion for those of us who crave community with other women dreamers. Whether meeting for the first time or weaving in deeper, we practice at belonging together through embodied dreamwork.
Private Dreamwork with Toko-pa
Working privately with dreamers is one of the great joys of my work. Every dream is so powerful and unique, and always offers meaningful medicine to the dreamer. Some people come to me with a single dream they need help with, while others have been coming to me on a weekly basis for years. The practice of dialoguing with our dreams is so endlessly fulfilling, and it is ongoing privilege to support others in deepening their relationship with the magic of the Dreamtime.
I am not currently accepting new Private Dreamwork clients.
