The Sanctuary of the Unit

The Wizard of Oz story is about adjustments of self in the context of the moral authority. As the four characters of the story kill the witch (their anxieties), they are able to redefine the reality of the wizard (fear), and assume responsibility for their lives and the Emerald City, their symbolic universe.

The Sanctuary of Unit is divided into four sections, each pertaining to one metaphor from the Wizard of Oz. Each metaphor corresponds to one of the social science disciplines and helps to evolve insights. The yellow brick road is the metaphor of the process. The characters walking the road represent personality types. Killing the witch pertains to personal transformation, assessment, and therapy. Oz corresponds to understanding morality. For more information about The Sanctuary of the Unit exhibit, please visit this site
