Our 2022 Events – upcoming:

Mandala – Healing and growth symbols in Sandplay and Art

Saturday 9 July 2022, 9am–4pm

Programme details:
I began to understand that the goal of psychic development is the self. There is no linear evolution; there is only circumambulation of the self. (Jung, 1989; p.196)

Humans have always been drawn to circles. We experience them in nature, in art and in movement and each culture draws unique meanings from it. In this workshop we will reflect on:
• the shapes that appear in the sandtrays and art of clients
• finding mandalas in nature and in Māori art
• Kalff’s reflections on circles, squares in the psychic development of children
• The Archetype of the Great Round
• Cross as center in mandala and as archetypal image
• Case examples

Facilitators: Carina Conradie and Jean Parkinson
Venue: Southwell School, 200 Peachgrove RD, Hamilton, Aotearoa New Zealand
Cost: $190.00 per day (BYO drink and food. No catering facilities)
