Courses


Training in Sandtray and Sandplay Therapy with Sandplay Aotearoa

For the past nine years Jean Parkinson has offered four-level basic sandplay training in Auckland. These experiential workshops, differentiating Sandtray from Sandplay Therapy, are intended to promote awareness of the modality as a serious psychotherapy with strong psychological and developmental frameworks. They are not intended to take the place of training offered by ISST accredited teachers. Their value is in raising awareness, promoting professional reflection and interest in the responsible practice of Sandtray and Sandplay in Aotearoa. (Please note these are neither NZQA nor ISST)

Authentic Movement Practice

Description
A simple but powerful creative process of inner listening, art making, witnessing and dialogue, in a safely structured group. A creative, threapeutic, relational and restorative process for personal growth and healing and self care. Beginners are welcome. You will be safely guided, starting with a structured warm up, then a dive, into the inner unfolding.

In this process you can:
• Teach your brain to step back, observe and trust your body's innate movements
• Experience your body's profound wisdom in movement
• Witness and explore your inner dialogue, for insight and change
• Explore a combination of stillness and motion, for deep satisfaction and integration
• Co-create a sacred group space of respect, interconnectedness and safety
• Feel supported and held in compassionate witnessing
• Experience a transformative field of group consciousness
These small friendly gatherings in a warm, accessible, venue.
