HKSTA Study Group April 2022

In April, we continue to study Part 2 of the book “Nine Windows to Wholeness: Exploring Numbers in Sandplay Therapy” by Pratibha S. Eastwood.  In this session, we will take an integrated view on the whole system of the number archetypes from different perspectives such as in reference to Erikson’s developmental stages, a synchronistic viewpoint with the Self, from the theme of commitment, love and affect and the sandplay process in general with the client. This session will bring together a wider perspective of seeing how the number archetypes can be applied on a wider scope symbolically.

In each three-hour session, the sandplay processes of children or adults clients will provide a focus for examining the stages of a process, understanding personal and universal core themes, and discovering how the psyche expresses and projects these unspoken aspects into symbols. Some of the participants will present their clinical materials of sandplay therapy to demonstrate the sandplay  process. If you like to learn more about the sandplay process and Jungian concepts, please come to join us. The deadline for the early-bird will be on April 12, 2022.

HKSTA Study Group March 2022

A woman moves from the “one unto herself” of the Maiden, to the focus of survival and growth of her offspring as a Mother. This archetypal energy may also be used to gestate, birth and raise a career, creative works, a spiritual path, or any other endeavor a woman may wish to pursue.  The Crone is the third and final archetype in women’s lives. The Crone is a woman who has developed a sense of her own empowerment through her nature. She has a playful spirit and approaches life in a lighthearted way.

In this Study Group, our honorable advisor, Dr. Amy Leung will lead us looking into the three phases of feminine development.  She will use the article written by Zilda Maria de Paula Machado “Recovering the Feminine Identity” JST Vol.19, #1, 2010 in discussion.  

Date           :     March 30, 2022 (Wed)
Time           :     7:30-9pm
Topic          :     The Archetypes of Maiden, Mother, Crone

HKSTA Study Group February 2022

In February, we will study the book ‘HE: understanding masculine psychology’ by Robert A. Johnson. Robert A. Johnson was a renowned Jungian analyst and lecturer. He was also a prolific author. He published numerous books on Jungian psychology which have sold millions of copies. In his first book, ‘HE: understanding masculine psychology’, the Grail myth was explored. The Grail myth speaks of masculine psychology – what does it mean to be a man? What are the landmarks and blocks along the way to become a mature man? It is also relevant to women, for they also need to develop their inner masculinity. Decades after the publishing of the book, majority of modern women are taking part in the masculine world. The development of inner masculinity in female has become a timely and practical concern.
