IN THE INTERVIEW:

  • A childhood in exile, a lost community, and finding belonging again
  • Being grabbed by the hair and dragged into the bottomless underworld
  • An incredible story about physical pain, a powerful dream, the grandfather who jumped from a train on the way to Auschwitz, and ancestral healing
  • Healing is open ended
  • When a family must keep their stories secret in order to survive, and how that silence affects the lineage- "Nothing influences children more than the silent facts in the background" -C.G. Jung
  • The dreaming channel is always open- being in reciprocity with the world behind the world
  • We are literally made of story, and dreams are the original stories
  • Why we should not be down with OPI- Other People's Information
  • Dreams are nature pulsing through us, and incline us toward our unique medicine
  • The multiplicity of our coherence
  • Not all dreams carry equal weight, but there is no such thing as a throwaway dream either
  • Approaching a dream as if it were a wild animal in a forest
  • Heirlooms, the storying of objects, and what we reclaim when we make things by hand
  • To feed the holy that sustains us, give in a way that doesn't require any more taking
  • The meaning of Toko-pa's name (which was given to her at birth)
