Check out what other people are saying about their experiences

I enjoyed the focus on self-care, making Sandtrays ( to clean off my mirror), met so many other Sandtray therapists, energizing, felt at home, and the speakers on trauma and autism. “10” for sure.

Kay Gottrich

It was amazing to have the ability to walk into a room with like minded lovers of the sandtray! I didn’t run into any strangers and it was amazing.

Carmen Jimenez-Pride

I was struck with the little details that I could tell were put into making it extra special: the great seating, the individual "trays", the centerpieces on the table, the lunch spread etc. As CE chair of our state association, I was so impressed by the thoughtful production (in addition to the great presentations/information) and have even tried to incorporate some of those into our annual convention.

The Sandtray Summit Virtual Event

is more than your average conference experience

We know that you miss going to events right now ... and we do too!

That's why we decided to go all-in on this year's Sandtray Summit Virtual Event and pack in as much inspiration, connection, and mind-blowing knowledge as possible (and of course, there will be a few surprises along the way)!

The best part?

This years virtual event means no long flights, no travel arrangements, no forgetting things at home, no rental cars, no waiting in line at customs or at the hotel coffee shop.

Roll out of bed and join us ... even in your PJ's if you want!

Just set aside two days to be with us and this will be an online event experience we think will top most of the in-person events you've attended.

Best of all, you'll get all the knowledge, know-how, and inspiration to make massive progress in your sandtray journey!
