HKSTA June 2018 Study Group- “Wonderland”

June Study Group

After our extensive study on the characters in the story of The Wizard of Oz and how to apply them in the understanding of the process of individuation and hero journey, in our June Study Group, we would like to process another story which is easily mixed up with The Wizard of Oz. This story is Alice in Wonderland, and it is about a girl named Alice falling through a rabbit hole into a fantasy world populated by peculiar, anthropomorphic creatures. Our presentation will focus on the symbol of Wonderland. It is a place where the irrational, the “mad” creatures can actually have much to offer the heroine on her journey of development and greater consciousness. Sandplay case will be used for illustration.

HKSTA June 2018 Study Group
Symbol Study: “Wonderland”
Presenter: Carol Lo Chung Man
Date: June 26, 2018, Tuesday
Time: 7 – 9 pm
Venue: Room 301, 3/F., David House, 8-20 Nanking Street, Jordon, Kowloon. (Next to Jordan MTR Station Exit B)

This study group is only opened to members of Hong Kong Sandplay Therapy Association.

IMG-20180425-WA0007

In April, we had stud​ied​ the book “The Wizard of Oz” in our group. Many members participated and we had a good discussion. In May, we will continue to have ​further study on the two main characters of “The Wizard of Oz”: “The wicked from the West” and “Tin Woodman”​. They ​were chosen for understanding the archetypal theme on the Orphan and stepping into the path of individuation.

HKSTA May 2018 Study Group
Symbol Study: “Tin Woodman” and “The Wicked from the West”
Presenter: ​Carol Lo Chung Man, ​​Bhakta Ng Wing Yan​​
Date: May 29, 2018, Tuesday
Time: 7 – 9 pm
Venue: Room 301, 3/F., David House, 8-20 Nanking Street, Jordon, Kowloon. (Next to Jordan MTR Station Exit B)

“Tin Woodman” — No heart…All hallow’ This sparks Tin Woodman, a character from a story ‘The Wizard of Oz’, to join Dorothy on the Yellow Brick Road and start his self-discovering journey. In the story, Tin Woodman always wants to restore his lost-heart as he thinks he cannot love and to be loved without a heart. Although he has no physical heart, he is the most caring and compassionate character. In this study group, we will study the transformational journey of Tin Woodman and explore the symbolic meaning he carried.

“The Wicked from the West” – by the new version written by Gregory Maguire, the wicked was offered a new name called Elphaba, who will grow up to become the infamous Wicked Witch of the West. She is a smart, prickly, and misunderstood creature who challenges all our preconceived notions about the nature of good and evil. Indeed, she wasn’t so wicked after all. She was just an orphan and alone for exploring what were the good and bad within herself.
