Applications of the Mandala as it relates to the iceberg and the Process of change

The Mandala is a framework to explore the concept of human universals. The Iceberg is a teaching tool which offers a universal view of the inter-physic world of humans. We will show the integration of these concepts with a beautiful model called the "Process of change". We will demonstrate how this trio of concepts offer a way of teaching how to make contact with others in deep and healing way.

How to transform the Coping Stances (Defences) in the Sand Tray

This presentation will use photographs of peoples work in the sand tray to illustrate how the coping stances (defences) can be transformed using Neuroscience and the Satir Model in the Sand Tray. The photographs will illustrate how:

  • We use our own energy to convey safety, love and respect (attunement)
  • We help the client access their own Life energy
  • We companion our clients on their journey of integration.
  • We use our intuition
  • We create safety
  • We use abounding tender silences
  • We facilitate the creation of  novel metaphors through creativity and play
  • We offer light energy from candles
  • We use our ability to see ourselves in past, present and future 
  • We ask the figurines process questions (of the Iceberg)
  • We invite clients to “show me don’t tell me” 
  • We facilitate enactments in the metaphor
  • We help the client access their bodily responses

There will be the opportunity for questions, bubbles and discussion. Please join Dr. De Little for this enriched experience.
