Presented by Harriet Friedman, M.A., M.F.T., Sachiko Taki-Reece, Ed.D., M.F.T. and Gita Morena, Ph.D., M.F.T.
Come celebrate with us the publication of Into the Heart of Sandplay with three of its contributors.
Into the Heart of Sandplay (edited by Dyane N. Sherwood and Betty C. Jackson) is a compilation of experienced sandplay therapists from around the world sharing personal stories about their inspiration to work with this symbolic method of therapy. Many describe their early experiences with Dora Kalff, the founder of sandplay therapy, and also include their thoughts about Jung’s essential and fundamental concepts for working with the psyche. These personal stories weave together to convey the sacred undercurrents of sandplay’s integration of symbolic imagery into the therapeutic process, and describe how serendipitous encounters, perseverance in the face of obstacles, and surrendering to the numinous carry the work forward.
This event is free to attend!
