Discover how to approach your dreams as a courtship... and restore belonging to the split-off parts of yourself.
Learn how to listen to your body more deeply to receive the medicine of your dreams — and experience greater freedom and personal power in your daily life.
At any given moment, we’re either turning away from or coming home to our soul’s purpose...
You may have noticed that when you stray too far from who you’re meant to be, you feel lonely, disoriented, anxious, or depressed... or disconnected from yourself and others.
These are normal responses to a culture that places more emphasis on outer success than on cultivating the inner life...
Yet, through your dreaming life, you can bridge the gap between your authentic Self and who you’ve had to become to survive — and return home.
Courting your dreams is the art of approaching mystery gently and respectfully — listening to what’s being communicated through your body, and allowing yourself to be led by its wisdom.
This powerful approach to dreamwork is also how you can “cultivate the skills required for belonging,” according to author, teacher, and dreamworker Toko-pa Turner.
Tending to the relationship with your dreams rekindles your conversation with that holy wellspring of wisdom and beauty within you. It reconnects you with your deepest knowing — to reveal and mend the fractures in your soul, and welcome home the parts of you that had retreated in disappointment, invalidation, and fear.
Dreamwork helps to restore the wounded instincts, which are the seat of your creativity... and brings you back into your native relationship with magic.
In this revelatory virtual event with Toko-pa, you’ll discover a unique approach to dreamwork that invites you to dance with the mysterious others within you... to restore belonging to the lost, forgotten, or rejected parts of yourself... and to experience true belonging with others.
During this illuminating hour with Toko-pa, you’ll discover:
- Why engaging with your dreams through courtship can lead to a more meaningful relationship with your soul — more so than traditional interpretation
- How to shift from seeing your dreams as originating from your mind to recognizing them as an organic expression of nature that can lead to a deeper connection with life
- How listening to the communications of your body can allow you to more deeply receive the medicine of your dreams
- Why meeting the “dark guests” in your dreams with welcoming curiosity can lead to greater freedom and personal power in your daily life
- How practicing dreamwork is like weaving a living bridge to “something greater,” and can help you restore belonging to your life, and to the world
Toko-pa’s approach to dreamwork blends the mystical tradition of Sufism, the depth of Jungian psychology, and a feminine receptivity that cherishes dreams as sacred. A complex alchemy occurs in not-knowing — the essential starting place, Toko-pa believes, for our becoming worthy of a dream’s revelation.
If you’re already a dreamworker, Toko-pa’s approach of honoring and dancing with the dream will intrigue and nourish you. If you’re new to dreamwork, you’ll discover a fascinating new path to personal and spiritual growth.
Regardless of your level of experience with dreamwork, Toko-pa will guide you to begin a conversation with your soul... forever mysterious, yet your most trustworthy companion as you make your way home.
