rehashes Michael Teachings by Chelsea Quinn Yarbro,
This review is from: 7 Personality Types: Discover Your True Role For Success And Happiness: Discover Your True Role to Achieve Success and Happiness (Paperback)The core of this book is taken from the work of an Orinda channeling group in the mid seventies that was then published as "Messages from Michael" by Chelsea Quinn Yarbro. The channelers in this case were former Gurdjieff students so some of the language goes back to that source (the Ouspensky branch, anyway).
It's not bad, and imo anything that points students on the path back to the Michael work is a good thing... but it is watered down. She hits the general points of the system but seems to miss the aim of the original work: we are spiritual beings on a physical path. The overleaf system (of which her "roles" are only one component if albeit a very important one) was designed to move ego driven false personality out of the way and allow the essence self, or true personality to come forth. This moves the metaphysical student onto the path of the adept towards unity.
But she does a decent job with genericizing the work. Puttick herself is a former Osho sannyasin, and her work has largely been in that context. Karma being what it is, and the Osho karma being pretty heavy lifting, this is a refreshing move into a new direction.
