ABSTRACT:  The veil, covering and not covering suggests the attitude of respectful silence and delicate gaze towards inner images. The depths of our psyche, like all sacred places, cannot be profaned by invasive and judgmental eyes. Dora Kalff called the sandplay space “a free and protected space,” therefore a “veiled” space, where our psyche shows us our inner transformations. “Reveal” can become “re-veil in Italian, which means to veil again (re-).The veil is an important attribute of Isis, Aphrodite and Demeter. These ancient goddesses had a veil meaning the most essential quality of divinity, their power and their rituals of initiation. Eleonora’s sandplay process is shown in eleven sandtrays, is appropriate to highlight the archetypal value of the veil in the relationship between conscious and unconscious and sandplay as an excellent creative method to activate it. Eleonora is a beautiful young woman who appears in beauty contests but when she starts having strong panic attacks, her life suffers a sharp decline. Eleonora meets the value of veil in her psychic process and her life changes radically. This material was first presented at The Mask, The Play of Hiding or Revealing in a Changing World– 22nd ISST Congress, Venice, 2013 as well as STA National Conference in 2014.

ABSTRACT: Der Schleier, der bedeckt und nicht bedeckt deutet eine respektvolle Stille and einen delikaten Blick auf innere Bilder an. Dora Kalff nannte den Sandspiel Raum einen freien und beschützten Raum, daher einen „verschleierten“ Raum. „Eleonoras“ Sandspielprozeß wird mit elf Sandbildern gezeigt.
