Introduction to Sandtray: The Here and Now of Sandtray Therapy
Training for Therapists of Diverse Orientations
Sandtray therapy is a process-oriented experience, which activates the senses, emotions, creativity, and intellect. The sandtray therapy process creates a place where expression of needs and wants is not dependent upon words. Using a container of sand and a world composed of miniatures, the creator builds a three dimensional picture, which comes from different dimensions of consciousness. The therapist and the builder of the world are co- explorers.
The training will be experiential and didactic and is limited to 4 participants. No experience needed.
