The Body and Its Symbolism: A Kabbalistic Approach by Annick de Souzenelle is reviewed in the new Dec 2015-Jan 2016 issue of Retailing Insight magazine. The review reads:
"Published in France in 1974, this book has been a bestseller in Europe ever since. This edition, translated by Christopher Chaplin and Tony James, is the first English version. Well before most of the Western world became aware of Eastern energy practices, and well before celebrities discovered Kabballah, this author put together a serious study of the symbolism of the body and its relationship to higher spiritual awakening. Before the peak of the feminist movement, she managed to immerse herself in the world of masculine-dominated theology without losing her awareness of the power of feminine divinity. This book quietly restores a balance within existing traditions. Drawing from the Hebrew bible, the New Testament, Jungian psychology, Einstein, and the Dalai Lama, she moves readers to the realm of spirituality that transcends its worldly interpretations. Let customers know this is a serious study of the esoterism carried forward in mythology and religion from ancient times. The density of the information provided, while communicated very clearly, will encourage the reader to return to the text again and again."
