Finding Our Voices Facilitates Sand Tray Play Group

Finding Our Voices: Healing Art Activities for Survivors of Sexual Assault invites you to come and play in the sand with us on Saturday July 9 from 10 until noon  at 710 Manitou Blvd, 80904.

Working with miniature figures and found objects arranged in a bed of sand, each participant has the opportunity to set up a private world corresponding to her/his inner state. Engaging in the creative process can allow unconscious thoughts to become visible in a three-dimensional form.

Dora Kalff, the originator of Sandplay Therapy, has said that she "did nothing" when she worked. Then she said, "It is harder to do nothing than to do something." 

This is a self-guided experience, not intended as therapy, but peer support is available for input and feedback. The members of FOV facilitate these monthly workshops to empower survivors!

RSVP is requested at fovartshow@gmail.com OR 719-636-5065 Refreshments served! Trays, sand, and objects provided. However, if you have a specific story or scene you'd like to create, please bring the figures you need.
