HEALING AND ARCHETYPAL DEFENSES OF THE SELF: THE MANDALA’S PATH TOWARD WHOLENESS

Journal of Sandplay Therapy, Volume 25, Number 2, 2016
Lynne Ehlers
Albany, California, USA

KEY WORDS: Sandplay, mandala, archetype, symbol, Kali, central mound, Trojan Horse, incest, circular movement around the center, Self tray, Donald Kalsched, protective self-care system, paranoid/schizoid position, depressive position, borderline personality disorder, Fordham’s integration/ deintegration/ reintegration, coniunctio, proceeding.

ABSTRACT: This is the case study of a middle-aged woman and her healing year-long journey through sandplay therapy. Repeated severe violations to her personal, psychological and physical integrity had profoundly affected her core sense of self. Twenty of her twenty-six sandplays present repetitive dynamic movement around a mandala-like central motif flanked by corner guardians, symbolic of Donald Kalsched’s archetypal defense of the Self. Through Fordham’s process of de-integration and reintegration — visible in the sand and in our work together – the client was able to overcome her defenses, access her personal trauma, integrate and transform intense shame, rage and self-hatred into images of wholeness and move back into the world with a greater sense of self. This journey to the Self through sandplay is a remarkable example of healing in the archetypal realm.
