Bly and the Organizational Model Caucasian
In the Bly Colloquium book there are case studies done by Paul Monkowski and Jack
Phillips. There is a boy who has issues with substance abuse and depression. He is really
worrying about his mother who has multiple sclerosis and whether he can take care of her,
and who will take care of him if she dies. He would not fit into the organization as a
team player.

The evolving Metaphors of Organizational Life for the New Millennium by mark Warford.
This relates Bly’s theory that the patriarchal society is dwindling. This also
translates into organizations where they are being viewed more metaphorically than in the
traditional bureaucracy and hierarchy. In the typical patriarchial hierarchy, it is

    Does dream interpretation really work Dreaming is one of our most intimate experiences. Every dream, every night, is very unique. Our dream world, however confusing, frightening, or even sexy, reveals all of our secrets. Every human emotion and experience can be reflected in our dreams. They mirror our deepest desires, hopes, fears, and fantasies. Our hidden self, the one we try to keep from the outside world, emerges from our subconscious. We see ourselves in the raw, sometimes quite literally.

The ability to have one dream that is so bizarre and fantasy like and the next seem so real that it is hard to tell if it really happened or not, is quite amazing.

It is the way the psyche copes and releases intense emotions, especially the ones most deeply repressed a
