Originally published in the Journal of Sandplay Therapy, v.20, n.2, page 41-63, 2011, USA. This article draws parallels between the stages and main operations of the alchemical work and the individuation process, as it is experienced through the sandplay method. Following the theoretical contextualization of C.G. Jung and Edward F. Edinger, and based on a clinical case, the author demonstrates the alchemical processes that are evidenced in each scene, and the psychic contents that are then elaborated in psychotherapy.
