In an interview Charlesworth conducted with Betsy Sussler, publisher of BOMB, which appeared in the magazine's Winter 1989 issue (pages 30-33), she says, "I borrowed from Tantric meditation, the progression of ascendant symbols along the body center equaling seven centers of the body. Then I returned them around and replaced them with symbols that are personally significant to me, that reflect my understanding of physical, psychic elevation."
