What will you associate with the human skeleton at the first mind? The scary, dangerous or fearful image or something that related to evil. However, from the religious and cultural perspectives, it has a different interpretation on the human skeleton which is “the harbinger of transformation, a new form of life inherent in the death of the old” (Marina, 2018)*.
In this study group, Sun will use the journal article “The human skeleton and the development of identity in a child’s sandplay process” by Marina Ionescu (Journal of Sandplay Therapy, Volume 27, #2, 2018) and Sun will have a case sharing to illustrate the symbolic meaning of the human skeleton and explore the view from Eastern perspective, which is less mention in the article, on this symbol.
