|"Often the hands know how to solve a riddle with which the intellect has wrestled in vain."|
Sandplay is hands-on psychological work, where a scene is built from figures and objects placed in a box of sand. The construction of the scene is guided entirely by the forces that lie within the unconscious of an individual, allowing them to touch more deeply into the creative nature of their own soul.
I have always longed for a greater ability to have access to the wisdom that lies deep within the psyche of every human being. The symbolic language used by the unconscious is expressed again and again by sandplay and allows the wisdom to come forth.
I studied with Dora Kalff in Switzerland and the United States, becoming a Founding Member of Sandplay Therapists of America. As a Teaching Member, I consult, teach and assist in setting up study programs throughout the world. I am co-author of Sandplay in Three Voices and the Founder of the Sandplay Therapy Institute.
|"The sandplay method takes the limited therapeutic possibilities of language into account with great seriousness and offers alternative means of expression."
Martin Kalff"When we succeed with this work of bringing about an inner harmony which defines a personality, we can talk of grace."
