Our Location in Switzerland
The Sandplay in Switzerland program has always been held in Switzerland since it began in 1984. We go there to the source of both Sandplay and Jungian psychology, one of essential roots. Dora Kalff developed Sandplay there, Carl Jung created his psychology there, and both lived in neighboring villages on the Lake of Zurich. Both knew and loved that particular place, culture, and context that nurtured them and their work.
Einsiedeln is easily accessible by train, not far from Zurich, in the German part of Switzerland. Swiss-Geman is the language spoken most here. Many people speak English, French, and/or Italian.
We have chosen Einsiedeln as our location because it is situated in a quiet, natural environment, surrounded by a beautiful, typically Swiss countryside. Einsiedeln has been an important pilgrimage center for hundreds of years and has an interesting history and special atmosphere. Exploring the area is enticing with walking trails from the center leading into the forest, to a nearby lake, and to the charming town.
Our location has everything we need—a well-run hotel and conference center, a spacious meeting room, good art room, nice accommodations, fresh healthy food, and a natural environment. There is a good, concentrated atmosphere that is conducive to our work. And, the fees here are very reasonable for Switzerland.
Our excellent hotel and conference center in Einsiedeln is Hotel Allegro, www.hotel-allegro.ch. See their website for more information and photos of the center, rooms, and the surrounding area.
