This book made all the western psychology I've read over the years make sense. The author describes the development of the chakras with reference to traditional western theories of psychological development. The result is that it puts the psychology in the BODY, and illuminates the reasons why the asana practice can be so emotional and psychologically liberating.

It's not in your head! It's in your body.

And, it makes approaching emotional issues through the physical body seem reasonable. Talking things out forever is not the fix for all problems or all people.

We are complicated systems. This is a wonderful book for thinking about it.
