Dreamwork & Belonging
Through our many personal, cultural, and ancestral displacements, we've become distant from ourselves, alienated from each other, and disconnected from the natural world. Our dreams are the first place the alienated self will appear. Join Toko-pa Turner, bestselling author and founder of the Dream School, as she explores the origins of our estrangement, how a diminished life can lead us into "false belonging," and how coming back into relationship with the outcast self can create true belonging in our lives and in our world.
During this heart-opening session, you'll discover:
- How alienation affects the choices we make as individuals & as a culture
- Why exile is a necessary initiation into true belonging
- That dreams bring us back into relationship with the refugee aspects of the self & the larger ecosystem in which we're embedded
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. 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.
