'Metaphor landscapes' seem very compelling, very basic to human nature, and relatively easy to access.

So, though 'clean language' is a brilliant and refined way to do this, it would surely be extraordinary if no-one else in human history had worked with metaphor landscapes before David Grove came up with the 'clean language' idea.

Obviously the general use of metaphor or imagery goes back to prehistory. However, I have in mind more than that - I'm referring to the kind of thing that is very familiar in any 'clean language' session - the unpacking of what one might almost call an 'alternative metaphorical world' which the client seems to 'inhabit'.

I'd be very interested to hear any suggestions for where one might look for 'non-Grovian' work with (or use of) 'metaphor landscapes'.
