This book study will focus on the archetypal theme of hero’s journey using the book “The Wisdom of Oz” by Dr. Morena. Current local sandplay therapy case will be used as illustration. Dr. Morena is a sandplay therapist and the great grand-daughter of L. Frank Baum, the writer of the famous book “The Wizard of Oz”. In her book, Dr. Morena explored the power of fairy tale and imagery from Oz in order to stimulate the imagination and to activate emotional healing. She also demonstrated how the main character Dorothy’s experiences in Oz resembles the struggles inherent in Carl Jung’s individuation process.
