What is Sandplay?
Sandplay is meant for healing. Kay Bradway and Barbara McCoard
In a "free and protected" space...the clients create a concrete manifestation from his or her imagination using sand, water and miniature objects. In this way, Sandplay helps honor and illuminate the client's internal, symbolic world, providing a place for its expression within a safe container. Harriet Friedman and Rie Rogers Mitchell
In this current age and time that rushes toward the future, the simplicity and depth of Sandplay provides a space for contact with the inner, symbolic world. Harriet Friedman and Rie Rogers Mitchell
Often the hands will solve a mystery that the intellect has struggled with in vain. C.G. Jung
Sandplay is a form of active imagination, but the images used in sandplay are concrete and tangible rather than invisible and intangible. Like dream scenes, sandplay scenes are a series of figres and actions. Kay Bradway and Barbara McCoard
