About the Zurich Lecture Series
The Zurich Lecture Series in Analytical Psychology was established in 2009 by the International School of Analytical Psychology Zurich (ISAPZURICH) and Spring Journal Books to present annually new work by a distinguished scholar who has previously offered innovative contributions to the field of Analytical Psychology by either:
- bringing analytical psychology into meaningful dialogue with other scientific, artistic, and academic disciplines;
- showing how analytical psychology can lead to a better understanding of contemporary global concerns relating to the environment, politics, religion; or
- expanding the concepts of analytical psychology as they are applied clinically
Each year, the selected lecturer delivers lectures over a 2-day period in Zurich based on a previously unpublished book-length work. Chiron Publications publishes this work as a new volume in the Zurich Lecture Series, of which Murray Stein and Steve Buser are co-editors.

Where Soul Meets Matter: Clinical and Social Applications of Jungian Sandplay Therapy
In this year’s Zürich Lecture Series, Dr. Eva Pattis will describe her extensive pioneering work with adults and children in many different cultures. In particular, she will speak about two distinct forms of sandplay that she has developed over several decades and has used in a wide variety of challenging contexts. One approach focuses on processes of kinesthetic imagination, inviting patients to use only sand and water in their play. The other, Expressive Sandwork(R), is a method developed especially for children in social crisis situations. In both cases, Dr. Pattis will show the psyche’s astonishing capacity to regulate itself when free and protected space allows for the creation of expressive images and narratives. In these innovative applications of sandplay, the psyche’s self-regulating tendency becomes remarkably visible and tangible.
