Embodying the Dream: A Women’s Dreaming Dreaming with Toko-pa Turner
November 20, 2015 - November 22, 2015
In ancient times, our ancestors saw no separation between us and nature. It was our prayers that kept the sun and moon rising, our rituals which ensured the rain would fall on our crops, our songs which brought the stars into alignment and it was our dreams which told us how to go.
Because the elders who would have transmitted the old ways to us have mostly vanished from our midst, it is now up to us to become those elders, to water the seeds of our dreams, to come back into the living conversation with our inner and outer nature, so we can provide a meaningful inheritance to the young ones who come up around us.
In this weekend retreat we will be living as a Women’s Dreaming Council in the mystical serenity of Saltspring Island. In our daily gatherings we will work deeply with the wisdom of our Dreams, pay respectful attention to our bodies, and share story, ceremony and song around a sacred fire under the moon. In this we are practicing at coming into belonging with one another and the vast beauty of our outer surroundings.
