ABSTRACT: Inside the sandplay therapy setting, both therapist and patient share the amorphous space of a room, and awareness of the boundaries and rectangular space of the sand tray. Both will simultaneously participate in unconscious access to the invisible formless space of our imagination, with no mind to receive an image, and with no pre-conceived intention to influence the invisible net of our imagination, that is cast into the infinite ocean of the unconscious. This net will catch “themes” of wounding and healing, which the psyche then transposes into forms. Theme needs to become embodied in form to make it accessible to ourselves and others. “Form is the visible shape of content” (Shahn, 1972). Forms are created in the sand, or chosen as miniatures, and installed within the sand tray. In sandplay, invisible maps guide us– an inner psychic map of that day’s journey, a map of the unfolding sandplay process, and the invisible map of placement within the rectangular sandplay itself. For example, the opposites in our psyche tend to emerge from corners and engage each other in the center. In eight spontaneous sandplays done by a small boy until five years eight months of age, these invisible maps can be seen to guide his sandplay process — of his sense of self on that day, of stages of the journey, and of the precise form of each sand picture within the rectangle of the sand tray.
