Meet Your Dreamwalking Guide
Toko-pa Turner is an award-winning 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.
As an authority on dreams, Toko-pa has been interviewed by CNN News and BBC Radio and has a community of over 100,000 online readers. Her bestselling book “Belonging: Remembering Ourselves Home” explores the themes of exile, and the search for belonging. It was awarded the prestigious 2017 Gold Nautilus Award for its contribution to the field of Personal Growth.
Sometimes called a Midwife of the Psyche, Toko-pa’s work focuses on restoring the feminine, reconciling paradox, and facilitating grief and ritual practice.
Week 1: Dream Architecture
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.
Week 2: Light in the Dark
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.
Week 3: Inner Marriage
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.
Week 4: Dream Yourself Awake
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.
