Book Description

The twenty-fifth anniversary of this beloved bestseller is celebrated in Prefaces by Oprah Winfrey and Maya Angelou and contains a new Foreword by the author, website links, and a new Study Guide to help readers find even deeper meaning and fulfillment.

The Seat of the Soul encourages you become the authority in your own life. It will change the way you see the world, interact with other people, and understand your own actions and motivations. Beginning with evolution, Gary Zukav takes you on a penetrating exploration of the new phase humanity has entered: we are evolving from a species that understands power as the ability to manipulate and control—external power—into a species that understands power as the alignment of the personality with the soul--authentic power. Our evolution requires each of us to make the values of the soul our own: harmony, cooperation, sharing, and reverence for Life. Using his scientist’s eye and philosopher’s heart, Zukav shows us how to participate fully in this evolution, enlivening our everyday activities and all of our relationships with meaning and purpose.

The Seat of the Soul has sold millions of copies around the globe, and as it changes lives, more and more people begin to live by the values of the spirit. Indeed, a new world is emerging, and this book brings its message to you.

Editorial Reviews Review

Ready to attain a higher level of understanding? Author Gary Zukav can help you evolve into a multisensory being, one who "values love more than the physical world." As shown in The Dancing Wu Li Masters, his bestselling exploration of physics, Zukav has a gift for presenting complex, even mind-boggling concepts in clearly worded and reasoned logic. In Seat of the Soul, he leads you on an inspirational and potentially life-changing journey into the seemingly intangible realm of the spirit. Reading in a calm, soothing voice he explains why increased sensory perception will mark the next phase of human evolution, how the power of choice can change your existence, and what you can do to infuse your life with more compassion, trust, and understanding. (Running time: 3 hours, 2 cassettes) --George Laney

From Publishers Weekly

"A laser is like a whole personality," writes Zukav. In a sequel to The Dancing Wu Li Masters , this exponent of the spiritual side of the "new physics" goes beyond intriguing parallels. In gracefully written sermonettes with titles like "Evolution," "Light," "Power" and "Addiction," he makes a bold attempt to fuse so-called New Age wisdom with modern psychology, science and sociopolitical reality. Zukav posits two types of people: the "five-sensory human" who puts mind over heart, lacks trust, plays power games and can't tap intuition is contrasted with the "multisensory" individual who seeks alignment of the soul with the personality. One section relates personal and national karma to the theory of Gaia, which holds that Earth is a single living entity with a soul. Though Zukav explores themes long familiar to astrologers and occultists, his high-minded synthesis is something more than old wine in a new bottle.

Was interested in this from hearing about this on Oprah. I think was Super Soul Sunday. Gave me some insight to spiritual psychology. Very good ideas in this book. He does talk about energy, the universe, openness, etc. Trust was another one. I think this book is about healing your soul if that makes sense to you. Well worth your time.

4.0 out of 5 stars EVOLUTION INTERRUPTED? March 31, 2014
For those who are paying even a little attention, it is not difficult to realize that "something" appears to be happening in the 21st Century that has no precedent in prior human history. With the growing achievements in science, genetics, artificial (computer generated) intelligence, instant global communication and spirituality many of these things will surely impact the direction of human evolution. This book provides some interesting input as to what these forces may do and how they may affect us all individually.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good ideas for staying centered March 15, 2014
By leah
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Thank you Gary. I am enjoying your book very much. This book is a practical guide for people who are serious about traversing the path of awakening to Spirit and need tips and ideas about ways to feel centered in your Soul's best perspective on all things. It's tricky business, and the author is very helpful in distilling down complex issues into simple terms. The reason for only 4 stars is that I'm getting a bit of ego in there. These are some of the best ways to stay on the path, but not the be all end all. We are all individuals and may find our own best ways to do the same thing, which are all valid. But reading this has helped me. There are quite a few great books out there that are finally and happily ending the choke hold that mainstream religion has had on our thoughts about the path to Spirit. Mainstream religion, as we know it, has only been a barrier due to it's exclusivity. Thank you Gary for your contribution toward advancing us.

4.0 out of 5 stars external power vs. authentic power January 17, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
We are living in a world that sometimes can paint happiness as something external when happiness always comes from inside the human mind. If more people could have the perspective that this book offers this would be a different world. You don't need to be religious to understand this book all you have to have is an open mind.
