The World Game, also known as Sandplay, is a wonderful way to know yourself without the use of words.
You are given a box of sand and free access to unusual and appealing objects. Music, flowering gardens, paintings, as well as the presence of the quiet observant facilitator contributes to creating a concentrated atmosphere in which you can tell a story in the sand or express your dream world using a symbolic language.
You are invited to be true to yourself in a natural environment.
The retreat offers one-on-one sessions, along with the facilitator. The retreat can happen in different ways: accompanied by music or not, interacting or in silence. Participants are invited to create a world of beauty and harmony and they can take this experience with them wherever they go.
The retreat session is open to all adults (and also children from 6y and above can participate). It is a one on one experience although sometimes 2 people can have an experience together. There are no requirements except a respect of the objects and the environment. You can also opt for multiple sessions, in which you can further explore and expand your worlds. In some cases, it can also lead to world games in nature.
The World Game is an activity that gives the opportunity to creatively explore thoughts, feelings, and imagination in an effort "to know oneself", a core principle of learning.
This individual retreat is priced at Rs. 2500. Additional sessions can be scheduled after the first session.
