dc.description.abstract The hypothesis for this dissertation is that (a) there is an increasing call for something called 'raising consciousness', and (b) sexuality and spirituality are integral to the process. It is, however, argued that sexuality in it's relationship with consciousness is incompletely considered in the mainstream of academic and lay discourse; and seems to not be accorded a positive position in the problematic landscape of human affairs. In this investigation, sex, gender, sexpression (the link between the previous two), sexuality, and spirituality are shown to be generally confused and in need of differentiation, and re-integration into a coherent unit. en_ZA
