Silence and Sandplay: An Exploration of Presence

Judy Zappacosta, MFT, CST-T and Jill Kaplan, MFT, CST-T
March 11-13, 2011

Have you ever wondered about the space we can open to in silence, a space that offers an active embodied moment that can invite new consciousness to emerge? Sometimes we call this synchronicity, sometimes it is engagement with presence, which is active and alive and transformational. This space holds a dynamic tension between action and receptivity, strength and vulnerability, is in motion and, at the same time, completely still.

We will explore silence through experiences of silent meditation, sandplay, nature, movement and art. There will be time for discussion and group activity during the weekend.

Join us in early spring, March 11-13, 2011, at a lovely retreat center in the Santa Cruz Mountains, at the Land of Medicine Buddha in Soquel, California 95073.

March 11-13, 2011, 3:00pm Friday-Sunday noon
