-The stages in development of the self
-The physical/energetic level of sexuality
-The intra-psychic level of sexuality

-The transpersonal experience

What readers are saying about this book:

The authors' broad perspective is a welcome relief from the narrowness of most self-development systems. Body, Self, and Soul is thoughtful, practical, and very well informed.
