What is 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.
How will I benefit from an oracle card reading?
The cards are portals into the realm of soul and dream, each with a living presence that invites us to learn about our own inner worlds through listening to the particular wisdom and insights they bring. Through receiving readings— either to address current issues one would like clarification or guidance with— or to go deeper into a dream and meet it through the language of symbols for better understanding, we receive surprising inspirations, guidance and healing.

Karla Refoxo of Tulku and I met by divine inspiration. The magnificent plant medicine woman and healer had just moved to Colorado from California and we happened to be in a shop in downtown Boulder at the same time. She was showcasing her soulwork amulet and talisman jewelry to the shop owner and I was absolutely blown away. I wanted to know more about this interesting being that lived heart first. Fast forward to today and there have been tons of heartfelt conversations where we’ve shown ourselves in our most raw and delicate states. Never a word of judgement and a beacon of unconditional love, Karla not only is intent on living her best life, but helping others live there. In fact, she is the main reason Totems and Tarot exists. She encouraged me to go after my dream. I’m so glad she did and I’m even more honored to sit down with her today to learn more about her process.
“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 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.“

“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.”
