Product Description

Amazon Review

One of Gary Zukav's many gifts as a speaker and bestselling writer is his ability to present complicated metaphysical and spiritual themes in a way that is simultaneously down-to-earth and spine-tingling. How does he do it? Through story--the oldest and most powerful form of teaching the mind and touching the heart. As a frequent guest on Oprah, Zukav has also discovered that the public is starved for grounded information on ethereal topics such as intuition, soulful relationships, and non-human teachers.

Soul Stories is a collection of true tales that speak to themes such as "Reincarnation," "A Higher Form of Reasoning," "Psychic Archaeology," "The New Female," and "Universal Humans." Some stories come from Zukav's personal experience, like his sister's car accident and his mother instantly knowing that her daughter was hurt even though they were 100 miles apart. It is tempting to view these 52 tales of fate, coincidence, and sixth sense with an air of doubt. "You have to decide," Zukav warns, "that means thinking about it and, even more important, discovering what you feel about it. Eventually, you might find that what you feel about a Soul Story is more important to you than what you think about it." No matter what you feel about the individual tales, you will leave this book trusting that the best way to understand the meaning and mysteries of life is through story. --Gail Hudson --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Publisher

Wonderfully readable, a wise and inspirational book
Writing with profound psychological and spiritual insight, prize-winning author Gary Zukav has had a major impact on the consciousness of an entire generation of Americans. His number one national bestseller, The Seat of the Soul, has been a life-changing experience for millions and his regular appearances on the Oprah television show have spread his message world-wide. In The Seat of the Soul he explains how the expansion of human perception beyond the five senses leads to a new understanding of power—the alignment of the personality with the soul—which in turn leads to an awareness of our extraordinary creative abilities and the responsibility we have for how we use them.

Now in his new book, SOUL STORIES, Gary Zukav shows how this understanding of power—authentic power—transforms lives in countless ways.

Here, too, is the story of Zukav’s own personal evolution. He writes openly and intimately about periods of his life when he felt jealousy, competitiveness, fear, anger, and all the other emotions we encounter and about how his understanding of these emotions changed with his awakening consciousness and recognition of a Universe that is alive and compassionate.

SOUL STORIES is filled with marvelous true stories that show how such concepts as intuition, harmony, sharing, and forgiveness actually express themselves in people’s lives. His stories lead to practical advice on how you can discover your own Soul Stories and the truths they reveal about the deepest sources of your being. Designed with fifty-two brief sections, or "chapterettes," the book can be read at a single sitting or savored one chapterette a week for an entire year.

Wonderfully readable, SOUL STORIES is a wise and inspirational book.

Gary Zukav in his own words

"I am a student of life, the spiritual partner of Linda Francis, a grandfather and a friend. I grew up in Kansas, graduated from Harvard, and served in Vietnam. In 1979 I wrote The Dancing Wu Li Masters which won The American Book Award for Science. It has become the bible for those who are interested in learning about quantum physics, but who are not drawn to mathematics or science. The Dancing Wu Li Masters was my first gift to Life. In 1989 I wrote The Seat of the Soul, a US National Best Seller about evolution and the soul. Together they have sold two and a half million copies, and been translated into sixteen languages.

For the last ten years I felt that the best contribution that I could make to the world that is being born is to live a conscious life, challenge and heal the frightened parts of myself, and be a good neighbour. I still do, but now I have also become very excited about co-creating.

My journey from an angry man with no regard for Life to who I am now has been long, often difficult, joyful, and extremely rewarding. It has shown me that anyone can make the same kind of journey in his or her own way." --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Gary Zukav has found a better medium for explaining his beliefs. Stories have been the best way to explain every idea since the beginning of time. I have also reviewed Gary Zukav's The Seat of the Soul in detail and reading that review may be helpful in understanding the premise behind Soul Stories. In The Seat of the Soul he explains his basic beliefs and goes into detail about authentic empowerment and how to reach beyond our five senses to become a multisensory person. Throughout Soul Stories, he also promotes the belief that the Universe is alive. To me, this is the presence of God in our lives. Gary discusses intuition, forms of reasoning, the earth school, emotional awareness, responsible choice, harmony, cooperation, sharing, reverence for life, forgiveness, love, trust, marriage, children, kindness and inner richness. It is not surprising that he also includes some health advice¯our souls do live in our bodies¯so why not create a perfect environment for the soul? We are individual souls sent to earth to fulfill a task or to learn a lesson, which will benefit us in the next life. Yes, I agree that you make your own future through making daily choices and when you have an "intention" you can create a good or bad experience. This book is a blending of Eastern religions with a generous helping of real experiences and a pinch of Christianity. I recommend that if you purchase this book and take this soul journey that you turn on your intuition, logic and perception. Be aware that although there are many truths in many religions, the ultimate truth comes from God. To know truth you must first know God. Gary has done an excellent job in raising awareness of the need to nurture our souls, however he has combined many religions into one book.Read more ›

Format: Paperback
Reading this book was like sitting in the midst of rain and sun...the end rsult being a graceful rainbow. Gary Zukav has a way with words and here again he doesn't disappoint. Soul stories across time and space are shared here, stories that really touched my inner most being. By being open to the simple idea of having a 'soul', I have experienced myself entering a cathartic region of myself, a place where healing can take place. This book sheds light on the openess to the energy of having a soul, that we are more than just brains and tissue. 'THE JOURNEY:WHERE SEAGULLS DARE TO FLY' on similiar planes, is the only other book I have come across that seems to unpretentiously express such ideas, that celebrates the idea of soul. A wonderful book that inspires the mind as well as the heart.

6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Donald Mitchell HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 24 May 2004
Format: Hardcover
This book is unusually effective in raising spiritual issues into normal awareness, and does so in a friendly and pleasant way. Each story builds nicely on the preceding one to tickle your memory about experiences that you have had or heard about, and to raise your awareness about the questions these experiences raise. You will undoubtedly gain new insights and new ideas for addressing these issues the next time you run into them. Everything is done very gently, so you can decide for yourself what you want to believe and pay attention to. The book is both extremely deep and considerate at the same time.
The theme of each story is basically built around the concept of uncovering what is in your soul, and then helping your conscious self to come into alignment with your soul. There is a beautiful analogy in one of the last stories in the book about what it is like to go from being in the desert (where life is harsh, dangerous, and full of fear) into the land of milk and honey where everything is rich, comfortable, and relaxed. When we feel like we are in the desert, we are deserting our soul's purpose. When we feel like things are wonderful, we are at one with that purpose.
Professional editors tell writers not create books like this. They say that readers need to have all of the dots connected. Well, although the book is not weighted down with lots of logical support for the theses that are developed here, I found that the stories were beautifully connected together -- far better than if they were all part of one story.
All but a few of the stories resonated with me. I look forward to thinking more about the ones that did not, in order to discern their intended meaning.
