Tokeli is a unique painter with synesthesia due to a traumatic accident and subsequent out-of-body experience. This inner transformation shifted the focus of Tokeli’s artwork towards consciousness. Tokeli's perspective was transformed and expanded, as she began experiencing outside-the-norm psi phenomena. This enhanced awareness to a multi-dimensional consciousness state has now embedded itself into the artwork. This is something that needs to be seen in person to be understood. There is significant data to support the notion that Out of body (OOBE) and near death experiences (NDE) are commonly known to enhance consciousness states and psychic abilities. People who have experienced an OOBE often “return” with expanded consciousness or an ability to meditate more actively, moving out of Beta brainwave state and into Theta and Delta states, thus tapping into hidden potentials and modalities.

Working with synesthesia, Tokeli's musical background compliments her experiential action painting to her own compositions. Each abstract painting and collage in the exhibition is accompanied by a musical composition, a poetic story and a philosophical or metaphysical writing. She has also published one exhibition/art book on the synthesis of art and consciousness. Tokeli has a an extensive background in the arts--music, theatre, film, painting and sculpture, as well as a theatre major and philosophy minor from UCSD (undergrad) and Tufts University (Masters). She also teaches meditation and metaphysics in small groups, and works as a consciousness speaker/trainer. In the United States, Tokeli will be on display as a solo exhibition at the Poway Center for the Performing Arts in San Diego County, California January 31 through February 23.
