Product Description

Amazon Review

Gary Zukav's American Book Award-winning The Dancing Wu Li Masters masterfully introduces the layman to quantum and particle physics, as well as Einstein's relativity theories. With a similar dose of amiable, easy-to-understand prose, Zukav guides readers into the spiritual realm in his bestselling The Seat of the Soul.

Zukav questions the Western model of the soul, asserting that the human species is in the midst of a great transformation, evolving from a species that pursues power based upon the perceptions of the five senses--"external power"--to one that pursues power based upon perceptions of the soul--"authentic power". He believes that humans are immortal souls first, physical beings second, and that once we become conscious of this transformation--once we align our personalities with our soul--we will stimulate our spiritual growth and become better people in the process. This insightful, lucid synthesis of modern psychology and new-age ideas has been described as the "physics of the soul". Who better to explain such heady concepts than Gary Zukav? --Ali Perry-Gallagher --This text refers to the Paperback edition.


"A very important book" (Paulo Coelho, author of The Alchemist)

"The Seat of the Soul changed the way I see myself. It changed the way I view the world" (Oprah Winfrey)

"A remarkable treatment of thought, evolution, and reincarnation" (Library Journal)

"Filled with wisdom, and written in a beautifully simple, almost poetic style, The Seat of the Soul is a book to be savored" (Brian Weiss, Chairman of Psychiatry, Mt. Sinai Medical Center, Miami, and author of Many Lives, Many Masters)

"A readable, thought-provoking [work] on how our perceptions must change dramatically if we are to survive" (Library Journal) --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

After reading some of the other reviews, I can not understand how anyone could read this book in its entirety and NOT get help. There is so much wisdom offered here, so much help for everyday living. Chapters on such things as Relationships, Addiction, Power, Illusion, Choice, - all of the issues that we all so regularly have trouble dealing with.
I have read the author's other books and have seen him speak many times. Believe me, he is not in this for the money. As a matter of fact, he is the most loving, unpretentious man I have ever met. He wrote this book because he has a strong heart-felt desire TO HELP PEOPLE UNDERSTAND, and he has devoted his life to this purpose. He was a suffering human being,in great emotional pain, until he was blessed with the experiences and divine guidance that changed his life.
All that he wishes to accomplish in this book, is to share with others what he now knows to be his own personal spiritual truth. It transformed his life, and if your heart and spirit are open, it can do the same for you.
Please judge this book on its own merit. He has written it in a way that it is clearly understandable, offering his love and wisdom to those of all faiths. You are free to accept only whatever you find that rings true in your own heart and soul, but there is so much insight here.
To say that it transformed my life is putting it mildly. I have given away numerous copies of this book to friends and relatives and most have come to view it as a treasure. Hope you will find that it will mean as much to you.

Not unlike many ideas that are provocative, this narrative compels one to have faith, accept and/or be willing to seriously consider the notions put forward in this book. If you are unwilling to do so, I advise that you move quickly on. This book is an organized stream of intuitive contiousness. I enjoyed it because it provided a clear framework for something that I already beleive. How many of us would have read, understood and beleived Einstein's theory of relativity in 1949? I found the book inspirational. It's ideas resonate with my experience and intuitive belief. However, for those tightly bound to rationality and the "have to see it to beleive it crowd", it does not prove the case. It postulates a notion. My strong christian faith was not offended by the New Age rhetorical style. However, this is not a book for one who seeks rationaly revealed truth or biblical submission. If you know what prayer is all about, then this book may prompt you to new heights of awareness. If you already beleive and understand the many writings, reflections and declarations on the Aquarian Age and New Age Spirituality, then this book puts many of those ideas into a consistant and intuitive, if not fully rational, framework. Most importantly, it brings the message of Unconditional Love to a world that is skeptical, crass, and far too devoid of messages of True Joy. It moves with grace to address and enlighten many questions related to the nature of our existence and why we as humanity exist at all.

I am so glad I read this book.
In a fast modern world full of day to day pressures we all need reminding that a change in attitude can change your life and this book, so beautifully written, guides you with love, compassion and understanding to a greater view of our tiny lives.
Gary Zukav caters for the merely curious to those already on the seekers path and as such I think everyone will finish this book feeling hope and encouraged to move forward in their life.
An excellent book - buy, learn, enjoy, and make a difference!!

If Oprah thought enough of the wisdom contained in this book to rate it the # 2 book in her life, after the Bible, you have to believe it is worthy of your own soul's judgement of the impact it can make on your life. For the people who reviewed the book negatively, how anyone could mock a work that is so based on love, compassion,and reverance for life, is beyond me. If any of you watched the last Oprah show where the author was the guest, you saw the people who had read the book that were living proof as to how the wisdom in this book had made such a major impact on them and turned their lives around. It was very touching and dramatic and each person expressed their gratitude to Gary for writing the book.
If anyone feels it is really important to know the source of his information,listen to the audio tape "Authentic Power". In this taped interview, he gives all of the details of his own personal experience and tells the extraordinary story as to how the information was revealed to him. If you are curious to know even more about the author, and what he is trying to accomplish for the world, go to his web site,
This book is an absolute treasure. My copy is now so dog-eared and marked up from being read so many times. The wisdom that he provides in the book helps to MAKE SENSE OUT OF LIFE AND GIVES YOU DIRECTION !
Read this book and make your own judgment. You will get back so much from it, if your spirit and heart are open to learn and receive the blessings it has to give.
