Ep. 17 Sandtray
What Has My Attention podcast https://www.whathasmyattention.com/17
You're probably wondering what sandtray has to do with podcasting. Simply put, it’s had my attention for a very long time. And since this podcast is about what has my attention, well there you go.
But it was being on Kim Shea’s Pivot and Thrive Podcast episode 16 titled “John Biethan and Stephanie Murphy: An Extraordinary Couple Builds Their Future Together” where in the conversation my partner Stephanie talked about Sandtray. Kim gave me permission to use a portion of her episode to drop in here so you could know what Sandtray is and how as an Art Therapist, Stephanie uses it in her practice. Thank you Kim I appreciate it!
And a note: There is a difference between Sandplay and Sandtray.
“In Sandplay, the therapist does not intervene with the client once the tray is created. Instead, the therapist keeps the focus on the unconscious of the client. By contrast, the humanistic sandtray therapist is actively involved in facilitating an experience of awareness and growth.” ~ Sandtray Therapy institute https://bit.ly/3wfim4C.
So Sandtray is a tool that allows a therapist to help their client tell a story.
So if you really think about it, the best podcasts you hear are telling stories. That’s why the length of a podcast doesn’t matter. It’s the content and the storytelling that matters.
For what follows about Sandtray, I've kept Kim's introduction to Stephanie and myself and then ask Stephanie the question of what is Sandtray.
Lastly, I want to again thank Kim Shea and of course Stephanie. And there are three others I want to thank.
Dave Herndon who taught me the value of first writing an outline before telling your story. He can be heard on episode 6 titled “Dave Herndon: How to Tell Your Story.”
Peggy Lebo, our True Voice Method voice coach at ImaginePodcasting.com who guided me through her method which, has given me more confidence and brought out a voice to better express myself.
And writing my solo episodes would have not been possible without the coaching from Kent Sanders at DailyWriterLife.com. I discovered Kents Daily Writer Podcast months ago and jumped into his Daily Writer Coaching program.
So what’s Sandtray got to do with podcasting? Storytelling.
If you’re doing solo episodes and want to clarify your thoughts, visit Kent’s links and his podcast. We have an upcoming episode with Kent in the upcoming weeks.
And I’ve scheduled some time with Barry Berman on the topic of Leadership. Barry’s business is Integritas Consulting https://www.integritasconsult.com/ and we’ll be talking about “integrity.”
Until next time, consider what has your attention and is valuable, and let go of the rest.
