Overview

Initiated by the question Why do we need to have a body to do spiritual work?, this collection of ideas and hypotheses, which grew from a conversation in a coffee-shop, discusses the body's essential role in personal transformation and spiritual development.

This new edition includes chapter commentaries by students and practitioners who have used the suggested techniques, and features a new introduction by the author.
