Sandplay For Life

How Sandplay Works

Sandplay therapy evolved from C.G. Jung’s insight: play and imagination are essential components for healing and change.

Building a Sandplay World is simply a non-verbal way of telling a story, and may be used in addition to talk/insight therapy.

Sandplay work provides a safe way to let the wisdom of your unconscious speak to you.

Because sandplay gets to the truth quickly, it is efficient, powerful and cost-effective – but it’s not for everyone. Some people take to it, some people don’t.

If you choose to experiment with Sandplay work:

  • First, you select and arrange miniatures in a tray of sand.
  • And then... maybe... you rearrange them.
  • A scene and a story take shape.
  • Partially-formed ideas become tangible.
  • Insights crystallize.
  • Baby tendrils point toward new directions.
  • Our collaborative interpretations provide practical guidance.
  • You take pictures, which are yours forever.

Sandplay provides courage for action.

Sandplay nourishes you for the long haul.
