Sandplay therapy and my sacred space

I'm treasuring my sandplay therapy office this month. I've been here fully in this space for a year now and have come to love the space a lot. The sun comes through the skylights and illuminates the trays in the late afternoons and the flowering bush outside the back side of the office right now is spectacular. I'm surrounded by huge old oaks and it truly does feel like a place where the numinous happens.

Part of why I'm appreciating it so much is the fact that we will all be moving in June to a new house turned office space just up the hill. It's a nice space but my sandplay area will not have the open feel this one does. I'm a little sad right now imagining how the new space will be. But I often have difficulty parting with space - living space, work space, even certain configurations of furniture and objects within a space. I know that I have a knack for moving into new space and making it my own, so that part will be fun once the time arrives and I am up the hill settling in.

For now I'm spending every moment at work sitting in here and enjoying it. And honoring the work that has been done here by clients.

I'm sure it will all work out fine. Your new space will be whatever you want it to be.

About your question about grazing muzzles. I'm not sure of the name but it looks exactly like the one you had hanging up in the picture.

Our current house was sold - we thought we were there for the long term but the owner decided to sell. I think the new space will be good once I get in it.

Do you know anything about the GreenGuard muzzles? I have heard conflicting reviews.

I don't know anything about it. I'll ask J if she knows anything.

Thanks - I'm curious what she thinks if she's seen them at all.

It's beautiful and very special there indeed.
