Endless Rhythm: Living with Layers of Sandplay

  You are invited to a triad of Sandplay Therapy Trainings! Three symbolizes a trinity, a new integration (Eastwood, 2002, p. 64). We are layering our learning so we can deepen and integrate Jung and Kalff in Sandplay. Whether or not you have studied with us before, these workshops can deepen your experience of Jungian Theory, Symbology and Kalff’s wonderful Sandplay Therapy. You can earn a total of 20 STA credits, which are included in the fee.
