The Teachings of Dora Kalff, is a beautiful, cloth-bound volume, constructed from the Editor’s notes and sketches done while studying with Dora Kalff.  Although not a replication of Mrs. Kalff’s work, the material shares the primary principles of the teachings of this remarkable founder of Jungian Sandplay therapy.

In this beautiful, full-color volume, Sandplay therapist, Barbara Turner, PhD, has recorded Dora Kalff’s teachings, transcribed from the notes she made during the original lectures. Although not as complete as would be audio recordings, the reader can clearly “hear” Mrs. Kalff’s voice in her words.

The sand trays are replications Dr. Turner constructed from the sketches she drew of the photos and the verbal descriptions Mrs. Kalff gave during her lectures. The drawings are similarly reproduced from notes made during the seminars.

These are treasures in the history of Sandplay and Temenos Press® is honored to share them with others, particularly those who did not have the opportunity to study directly with this remarkable teacher.
