Isn't generosity considered step 1? That'd fall under bodily, correct?
Mostly yes, but not necessarily, because the highest dana, according to the Buddha, is dhamma-dana, that is, some (obviously, verbal) advice in Dhamma up to whole lectures, dhammatalks and long-term personal instructions. This is from where monks make their bulk of punnya 8-)
