I experienced a brilliant talk today from Fernanda Maio (http://coimbra.academia.edu/FernandaMaio), who is working with Jungian archetypes in organisation – can’t believe someone is working in the same arena as me! She also practices shamanism – stands to reason really.
Fernanda introduced me to an archetypal model I wasn’t familiar with – by Gareth S. Hill (http://www.amazon.co.uk/Masculine-Feminine-Natural-Opposites-Psyche/dp/1570626472) – of course as soon as I saw it it resonated so much with me it was as if I’d always known it – so much more fluid and open than Corlett and Pearson’s attempt at defining the organizational psyche.
Steve Taylor’s play – the invisible foot – hilarious, clever, critical – wow, hats off to the perfomers who braved the risk boldly and won through! (I’m saying this as someone who detests musicals – and yes, there were ‘numbers’!) http://www.palgrave.com/products/title.aspx?pid=540939
