Singapore Sandplay Symposium – a Great Success!!

Our  thanks go to  AST  members   Lynette  Balota  and   Roger  Ong,  for  all  of  the  hard  work  they   put   into  bringing  the  first  Singapore  Symposium  into  reality.  We  had  nearly  100  participants  for  pre-symposium  group  consultations,  individual  consultations  and  riveting  lecture  material.   We were so pleased with the growth of interest in Sandplay and the professional respect with which it is held in Singapore.  AST’s spirit of loving kindness was evident throughout the Symposium. Everyone felt welcome, free to ask questions and to contribute.
