The focus of Toko-pa's presentation will be on Embodying the Dream in which she will be talking about Dreamwork and the Architecture of Belonging. "Belonging spins itself out from the center of the Self in the form of dreams and synchronicity. These living images call the dreamer forward, step by tentative step along their gossamer threads, into an increasingly intimate conversation with our lives, and embodiment of our soul’s values until we find ourselves anchored in a meaningful life."
An authority on Dreams, Toko-pa blends the ancient, mystical traditions of Sufism with Western psychology in her approach to dreamwork. Following a three-year internship at the Jung Foundation of Ontario, she returned to her roots to study mysticism, mythology and shamanism. She founded the Dream School from which hundreds of students have now graduated and wrote Awake and Dreaming, a documentary series forVision TV. Toko-pa has been interviewed by CNN News and BBC Radio and has over 40,000 online followers. She is currently working on a series of Dreamwalking books exploring the dynamic reciprocity between waking and dreaming. Sometimes called a “midwife of the psyche,” Toko-pa's work focuses on healing personal & ancestral trauma, reconciling paradox, and facilitating sacred grief & ritual practice.
