'A very important book' Paulo Coehlo
'The Seat of the Soul changed the way I see myself. It changed the way I view the world' Oprah
The Seat of the Soul has sold millions of copies around the globe and is a #1 New York Times bestseller. This fully updated edition contains celebratory prefaces by Oprah Winfrey and Maya Angelou, a new Foreword by the author, as well as an extensive study guide to help readers find deeper meaning and fulfillment in their lives.
This iconic book encourages you to 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. In it, Gary Zukav takes you on a penetrating exploration of the new phase that humanity has entered: one where harmony, cooperation, sharing and reverence for life become more important than the ability to manipulate and control. 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 our relationships with meaning and purpose.
``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.
