What is soul-oriented sand play? What is dreamwork?
Soul-oriented sandplay is visual dreamwork. Both sand play and dreamwork offer visual pictures of what your psyche wants you to know and heal. Both are gateways to the soul.
With both, I act as witness, while you create your visible dreamscape, or read it aloud from your journal. You tell me the story your psyche has created. Together we flush out what it is trying to say. Profound insights and healing occur.
In the sand tray here, the client placed a warrior goddess on top of an open geode (shown in the close-up below). After placing it there, she was so deeply affected that she switched the warrior woman for a young innocent girl.
After doing this, the client said, "I am one who . . . lives many lifetimes in one. I seek peace and balance for the many directions my life has taken. Quan Yin stands over me.
"I don’t want my warrior woman inside the crystal (geode). Seeing her there makes me weep. I don't want to be a warrior any more. I want to work and play with joy in my life and allow the simplicity of who I truly am." - MA psychotherapist
