HKSTA Study Group June 2022

In June 2022, we will study the symbol of Lighthouse. Lighthouse is a giant circular building that usually stands alone closest to the sea serving as the guiding light to the voyage. It helps to mark dangerous coastlines, hazardous shoals, reefs and rocks. Lighthouse, at the same time, is a comforting sign that the calm waters of a welcoming harbour are close to be reached. It’s been viewed as a symbol of hope and security. In Christianity, the Lighthouse represents the guidance, refuge, and salvation that characterized the life of Christ. It also contains a meaning of uniting different elements into one structure, to form wholeness. 

The symbolic meaning of the Lighthouse is so rich! And what’s more? In this study group, May will facilitate us to explore the various meanings of the Lighthouse. Some clinical materials will be presented to facilitate the discussion. Let’s experience the power of lighthouse and let it guide our inner journey, for ourselves and for our clients.

HKSTA Study Group May 2022

In May, we will study Robert Johnson’s book ‘She: Understanding Feminine Psychology’ (Published 2020 by Harper Perennial, first published 1976)

Robert A Johnson in his classic book “She: Understanding Feminine Psychology” discusses from the Jungian perspectives, via the lens of the ancient myth of Amor and Psyche, what it means to be a woman and how a woman walks towards her maturity as well as the masculine components of being a woman.  

In May 2022 study group, Kitty Liu will present the essence of this book and try to illustrate her understanding by some clinical materials that she has come across.  We sincerely invite members, women and men alike, to learn together on this topic.

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.
