The Soul-Centric Mode of Development: The Wheel of Life

I read a great book a few months back called Nature and The Human Soul. In essence, it described a model of pyschological development, what author, Bill Plotkin, calls a soul-centric model. The 'Wheel of Life' picture gives you an general idea. (Could be a bit small to see)

Nature & the Human Soul introduces an innovative developmental psychology that shows how fully and creatively we can mature when we allow soul and wild nature to guide us. Plotkin presents a model for a human life span rooted in the patterns and rhythms of wild nature, a template for individual development that ultimately yields a strategy for cultural transformation.

I won't do it justice trying to explain the book, so read this: a good introduction to book and its concept here.
