A New Psychology of Human Well-being
In Richard Barrett's latest book, he explores the influence of the ego-soul dynamics on mental and physical health.
"What I attempting to do in this book is develop a psychology of human emergence based on the seven levels model which in essence is a psychology of human fulfillment. In the model I am proposing every stage of development represents a natural step in the ego-soul evolutionary dynamic. The first three stages of development involve establishing your ego as a viable, independent entity in the physical and cultural framework of your existence. The fourth stage of psychological development involves aligning the motivations of your ego with the motivations of your soul. The last three stages of psychological development involve giving full expression to your soul’s motivations."
