Using DreamTending, Active Imagination, Creativity and Journeys to reveal Healing, Guidance and other Life Mysteries.

DreamTending

The practice of DreamTending involves going back into the dream using active imagination, resulting in the experience of something akin to a shamanic journey. Together, we embark on a journey of curiosity and discovery, creating relationships with dream figures who offer themselves up as teachers, healers and guides. We uncover fields of richness which spark creativity and imagination, while opening the doorway to the mystery in our waking lives. Tending dreams lit by the fire of presence, curiosity and imagination— is a deep dive into uncovering our own creativity, soul voice, and the vast realm of possibilities always available to us.

Beyond dream interpretation, DreamTending is a way of working with dream which opens our senses to the multidimensional quality that is present in our lives—always—and wakes us up to our deepest selves, our connection to the world around us, and the gifts we have to share. Through dialog with those who come to us in our dreams, we meet our tribe of inner Oracles who generously share wisdom, guidance and inspiration—empowering us to move through our lives with a newfound illumination and clarity.

I have found that going through the portal of dream not only takes us to our soul voice and calling, but it leads us straight into the Dream of Nature. Using creativity in the form of visual art, shamanic journeying, and writing, we go into the Natural World and learn to listen and share in the experience of the World Dream. Through engaging with the Oracles that live within us, we are introduced to ways of relating and listening to the voice of nature. Through using the vehicle of our creativity, we are guided still more deeply into living a more integrated, holistic and magical life.

Be willing to open to creativity, to your imagination, to curiosity, to childlike wonder. Be open to surprises, to magic, to discovery, to adventure, to transformation, and to the guidance of your soul.

Journey with me to the voice of your deepest longing, and into the guidance of your heart. Be open to listening, to seeing, to experiencing in new ways.

Plant Spirit Medicine

Plant Spirit Medicine is a form of spiritual healing which combines the traditions of ancient Chinese Five Element medicine and the indigenous practice of using plant spirits for healing. It has its roots in ancestral traditions, and though it has been largely forgotten in our society, it has been practiced in one form or another by medicine people around the world throughout time.

Unlike many other plant based healing modalities, in Plant Spirit Medicine no part of the physical plant is used or administered, but rather the spirit of the plant is called upon and it offers its help.

Continued Plant Spirit Medicine treatments over time, not only re-awaken and fortify our connection with Spirit and with the natural world, but through reaching into the deepest layers of a person, the plants bring balance and support to our core. Over time, and from that deep place, the healing grows and unfolds into a blossoming that reaches up through the layers of years of complexity and compensation, establishing harmony and wellbeing throughout the entire system. Over and over again, I have experienced and seen this ancient medicine bring deep healing, upliftment and transformation to all areas of a persons life, as it carries us away from feeling separate and into a life of wholeness, flow and joy.

Plant studies and Journeys to the plant spirits

Solo or group work offered. Plants are our teachers and healers and are very willing to share their gifts with us when we approach them with respect and honoring. In this offering, we go into the natural world and do in-person plant studies and journeys in the tradition of Plant Spirit medicine. We come away with a deeper sense of the living spirit of plants—and a more intimate connection with them and with the natural world. This is a very healing practice that empowers us in the art of listening, observing and opening ourselves to the magic present within and around us.

Interacting in a sacred way with Nature through art

Solo or group work offered. This experience involves a combination of shamanic journeying to plant and stone spirits in a natural setting, followed by creating artistic offerings to these elements of the Natural world. These creations are made using organic materials—earth pigments, earth clay and other natural elements— and are akin to the Tibetan sand mandala tradition. They are temporary creations made with deep honoring as an offering to the beings in the natural landscape, to be taken by the weather beings in their own time.

Karla, thank you so much for your work with dream tending and Oracle readings. You’ve helped clarify so much of what is going on inside of me.  I’ve been amazed by the depth of wisdom each of my dreams holds and I am endlessly blown away by how much I learn through this work. Each time we journey into one of my dreams together, your poignant questions guide me to the true meaning and presence of the characters and symbols that show up. I’m seriously so amazed how even the simplest dream can teach me profound truths about my experience and my path. The insight this work provides me has been indispensable in many decisions I’ve made. You’ve helped me feel more aligned with my inner guidance than ever. I would not be the same person  I am without this work. I now feel like I have this team of dream characters supporting me on my journey. You have helped bring light and life where there was darkness and uncertainty. Thank you.

I had a dream that I awoke from and sensed there was more to it, my gut said so. Soon after I saw a post by Karla mentioning “Dreamtending” – I had no idea what that was but felt very drawn to find out more. I set up an appointment and with Karla’s easy going presence I shared the dream and she guided the process that emerged. It was an easy effortless experience which seemed to reveal the deeper aspects and messages from that dream. Together we seemed to uncover the hidden gold and I really felt so much clarity at the end. I highly recommend you give yourself a gift of a Dreamtending Session with Karla, you will be amazed!

I had an Oracle card reading with my sister-friend Karla yesterday. Her words came across like poetry and cracked my heart open wide. During the reading, the cards told an intimate story about my life, based on the questions I asked.

The experience was beautiful, illuminating, and left me with lots to work with as I move forward. I HIGHLY recommend her if you’d like a clear reflection about what you are working with at this moment in time. .

Side Note: she’s also an artist and created each of the cards in her deck. #masterpractitioner #beautifulhealer #artistextraordinaire.

“I’m happy to recommend Karla as a wonderful healer and lightworker. I’ve done a number of PSM sessions with her and each one has resulted in deep, useful metaphysical information. I’m very particular about who I’ll work with, but I felt guided to find Karla and I’m glad I followed that prompting.”

Karla Refoxo’s Oracle Cards are divinely inspired profound images  that create messages of wisdom and guidance. She has painted both ancient symbols and unique visions, I received a reading from Karla that brought me tremendous comfort and insight to my relationships and a health concern. 

Her gentle and authentic interpretations of her cards allowed  me to engage with her in seeing the meanings. She  did not tell but guided the answers with me.Karla is a gifted artist but a wise and down to earth healer.

I highly recommend Karla Refoxo’s Oracle Card Readings . I know  you will find a clearer and deeper connection within your heart.

I experienced a dream tending with Karla and what an experience it was! Rather than tell me symbolism, she walked me back through the dream, together we extracted feelings within the dream. Providing  much insight, medicine was brought forth that will last throughout this lifetime and into the next. I am now reconnected to an deceased ancestor while alive had a profound impact on my life, along with two other powerful helping spirits, we are all now profoundly bonded. Karla’s passion and light is palpable, she truly works with her soul in this life. I highly recommend you listen to your heart and book with her. I obtained antidote for any confusion and confirmation of intuition. My deepest gratitude for you Karla and for all of your gifts that you present to the world.

About Karla

I love Dreams, Art, Nature, Imagination and connecting with my Intuition. For me, they are the portals to the Oracle Within. This combination—that brings me insight and delight— is what I passionately want to share with you.

The dreams I had of my mother dying in a car accident months before it happened when I was 20 confirmed my suspicions that the world of spirit is real and that it cares about me. These dreams showed me the unshakeable truth that I had direct connection with something mysterious and beyond life as I knew it. Something that loved me, looked after me, cared for me, and spoke to me through dreams, intuition and art. This has been true my whole life.

My dreams led me to the ashram and a guru for 18 years, a journey that took me on a long loop of giving up everything including my art, only to come back to it reborn, infused with Spirit, dedication and conviction. I found my soul home in Nepal and a deep connection with ancient spiritual artistic traditions. While working as an artist in Kathmandu, I met Rajendra Bajracharya, a Newar Buddhist priest and sculptor. Together we gave birth to Tulku Jewels, a way to not only create our art but to connect with the Spirit and tradition alive in these images. The combination then of sharing the medicine of beauty, symbol and deity as a support for people on their transformational journeys, also is a bringer of abundance to help keep these precious endangered traditions alive.

After leaving the ashram, the longing to have direct and grounded experience of spirit led me to find new teachers. Through Eliot Cowan the Pilgrimage Path he led me on, and my studies of Plant Spirit Medicine, my connection with the natural world deepened in magical ways. I was taught to journey to the plants and listen to their dream so that I could receive their medicine to share with others. Though my identity was of an artist, the healing the plants so generously offered beckoned me into a broader life expression as healer. This was challenging for me to embrace, since I had an idea of healers as traditional medicine people that was hard to live up to.

Creating the Tulku Oracle Deck was then a gift born of my need to integrate the knowledge and experience that I had gained over many years of working with the amulets and plant spirits as tools for healing, as well as the desire to paint again. Dreams, intuition, inspiration and the quiet whispers of support from the unseen realms have been my companions and guides.

While working on the Oracle deck, I met Stephen Aizenstat and embarked on the rich journey of learning Dreamtending. Here I finally allowed my dreams their rightful place of honor and found my voice. This was a coming home to a way of relating to the living images of dream and Oracle that my deck ..and my soul…was calling for. Combined with Plant Spirit Medicine, Dreamtending has brought me into a deeper engagement not only with my dreams, but with the living world of ancestors, nature, imagination, creativity and magic. This is where the world of Spirit, Art and healing all come together for me. The oracle cards, amulets and dreams are the tools that have shown me how to step into my gifts and help others.

While the fear of being seen combined with my identity as an artist has kept me in some sense hiding behind my art, the oracle has mysteriously given me courage. Tending peoples dreams and holding space for them in vulnerable moments, bringing art and imagination forward through dreams and oracle, have gracefully braided the healer, dreamer and artist into one.

My art, spirituality, dreams and oracle are all a part of who I am and my unique offering. They are what I was given so I could play my part and serve and support others on their transformational journeys. I am passionate about helping others engage and take hold of their own particular gifts and voice through dreamwork and oracle readings. I long to see you in your true power and wholeness and to help you discover and understand the unique language of your oracle within. If this resonates with you, please reach out to me. I promise to hold space in the most honoring way as I tend your dreams and oracle. With respect and curiosity, I will guide you as you go deep to meet and listen to the voice of your soul purpose and heart and receive direct inspiration from same.
