Personal Mission: Toks’ work reflects her own life philosophy which has developed through personal life experiences, study and a deep personal mission to help others fulfill themselves through individual exploration of alternative therapies of healing and self-realisation. She is a Wisdom Life Coach, a Transformational Mentor and a Spiritual Soul Guide, working with various modalities to bring harmony and awaken the Soul’s wisdom.
Extended Family: Toks welcomes and embraces every client and student who seeks to explore new and old ideas with an open mind as part of her extended family ideal of interracial harmony and tolerance. Each member of the extended family is invited to contribute individual qualities to help create a warm friendly caring atmosphere in her workshops and private 1:1 sessions, as well as later, in their own social sphere.
Respect: We respect ourselves when we listen intently and contribute to society through communication in a friendly helpful way.
Individual Progress: Toks is qualified to offer professional guidance in various healing arts using various tools e.g. imagination, dreams, alchemy, symbols, rituals, visualisation and dialogue. She recognises that the primary responsibility for total health and self development ought to lie within the heart of the client him/herself – to learn from their 1:1 experience and from the workshops – then carry the new ideas and knowledge into the community. This way the individual contributes his/her best possible self to the community, spreading goodwill and a new way of living in a very positive way.
Humanistic / Spiritual Goals: The aim is to meet the real needs of real people. The ancient arts of healing and the philosophies of eastern religions have very practical solutions, which help solve some social predicaments in our modern societies. This can help people damaged by too much rationality and not enough compassion. The development of a spiritual life is of vital importance today.
