Most of us think of belonging as a place that, if we keep searching, we might eventually find. Whether we feel unworthy, alienated, or anxious about our place in the world, the absence of belonging is the great silent wound of our times. What if belonging isn’t a place at all but a skill, or set of competencies that we, in modern times, have lost or forgotten? 

During this pandemic, connection can feel even more out of reach, but people are also reporting more vivid dreams, a deeper connection with their inner life, and with nature. Many find themselves taking inventory of what they truly value, and what has been missing from their lives.  

Join award-winning author, teacher, and dreamworker Toko-pa Turner for a luscious and transformative workshop exploring dreamwork and what Toko-pa calls the “competencies of belonging”. Drawing upon her Jungian approach to dreamwork, Toko-pa shares that dreamwork is an active practice that brings us back into relationship with the parts of ourselves that we’ve become estranged from. 

In this experiential workshop, Toko-pa offers a deeper look at, and demonstration of, some of the core practices in her approach to dreamwork, especially as it directly relates to belonging. Toko-pa shares practices to heal our wounds, restore true belonging to our lives, and to the world.  

This workshop offers guidance through a blend of instruction, practice, community, and ritual. Participants are encouraged to arrive with a dream or two in mind to work with throughout the weekend. 
This event is hosted live online. Instructions on how to join will be emailed to you shortly before the event. If you need to request accessibility accommodations, please email publicprograms@ciis.edu at least one week prior to the event. For more information click here.
