1- The relationship between the threefold classical spiritual journey (The purgative, illuminative and unitive way) and Being-Centered Leadership (BCL) Theory.
The threefold classical spiritual journey is discussed On pages 248–256 of the book Studying Christian Spirituality.
2- The impact of Retreat on consciousness development and its relationship with BCL Theory. You can have a look at the book 20 Minutes Retreat.
BCL Theory is based on the worldviews and ontological assumptions of five major religious traditions: Islam, Christianity, Judaism, Hinduism and Buddhism, and utilizes five levels of being as context for effective leadership: 1) the physical world; 2) the world of images and imagination; 3) the level of the soul; 4) the level of the Spirit; and 5) the non-dual level.
