Sandplay in Switzerland – A Two-Week Training Intensive for Professionals

Judy Zappacosta and Patty Flowers

June 17, 2017 - July 01, 2017

Einsiedeln, Switzerland

Eiger Monch JungfrauThis unique two-week intensive is for those interested in Jung’s understanding of the psyche, want to deepen their understanding of Sandplay Therapy, and who would like an opportunity to work with embodied consciousness as developed by Marion Woodman. Join us for an opportunity to study and work in depth with sandplay, imagery, body presence, and your own creative process. Travel to Switzerland, stay in a lovely countryside conference center surrounded by the Swiss Alps, and live for two weeks with international master teachers and a community of like-minded souls.

This program offers solid sandplay training combined with complementary experiential work with art and body awareness. The program includes in-depth sandplay case presentations by faculty; small group and individual consultation/supervision; and Interior Rhythms: bodysoul work with dreams, movement, creative expression and ritual. The Black Madonna of Einsiedeln is nearby, and there will be opportunities to visit and explore her meaning.

The two-week format provides the opportunity to study at a depth not attainable in short courses. In Switzerland, we leave behind our everyday responsibilities and immerse ourselves deeply in sandplay and depth psychology. Learning in the environment where this work was developed creates a connection to the source. Switzerland itself is beautiful, magical, and enticing. This program is the experience of a lifetime! We hope you will join us.

Led by Judy Zappacosta and Patty Flowers. Additional faculty will be announced.
