KEY WORDS: Sandplay therapy, premature birth, early disruption, surgery, abdominal, neonatal intensive care unit, NICU hospitalization, embodiment, clinical example, child, male, boy, development, sense of self, autonomy, symbol, snake, ego development, proceeding, stillpoint, proceeding, 2015, ISST Congress.

ABSTRACT: This author demonstrates how a sandplay process supports a five-year-old boy in recovering a sense of autonomy and embodiment after surviving multiple surgeries in the first year of life. Born prematurely and with abdominal complications, the boy experienced early disruption due to the surgeries and hospitalizations. The author explains how the free and protected space of sandplay therapy helped the boy feel more comfortable in his own body so that he could consolidate a new sense of self. For example, the author describes how the boy’s use of the symbol of the snake as Kundalini energy helped him achieve a sense of indwelling spirit. Throughout the boy’s four-year therapy process, he showed profound resilience by inhabiting body and psyche in a new way. The ways in which he progressed developmentally are described. This article is a proceeding from Finding the Stillpoint…at the Crossroads, the 23rd ISST Congress, Ottawa, Canada, 2015.
