About the event

This workshop is experiential and offers you the opportunity to create a sandtray and work therapeutically with other delegates in the sand. This workshop is a platform to support further training in the field of Jungian sandplay.

Research in Neuro-biology suggests that memories are stored in the limbic system (the right hand side of the brain where they cannot easily be accessed by words alone). Sand-play, being a non-verbal approach to therapy means that clients can tap into a deeper self which is pre-verbal and unconscious. As clients select minatures / figures and create your world in the sand tray meaning can be given to the symbols chosen and form a link to your brain and the neuropathways to be 're-written' and re-structured offering a new way of thinking.

The tray is designed to fill our field of vision and become a world or picture completely designed and created by the client! Clients use the numerous objects in the room which can represent / be whatever you want or need them to be. This process alone, in a 'Free and Protected Space' created and maintained and contained by the therapist and has the potential to facilitate the psyche's capacity for healing.
