The Association for Sandplay Therapy is founded on the core principles of Sandplay practice taught by Dora Kalff. These include clarity of mind, heart and action in Sandplay Therapy, with full acknowledgement that it is a great responsibility and an honor to practice Sandplay. In order to bring these qualities to our Sandplay work Association Members recognize that we must live our lives with personal and communal integrity, with kindness, loving compassion, humility, transparency and playfulness.
The Association is overseen by a Council of Mentors who dispatch duties of business and management on behalf of the Association and serve as a body of wisdom to hold and guide the Association.
