Description

With the same extraordinary skill that he used to demystify scientific abstraction and the new physics, Gary Zukav, the award-winning author of The Dancing Wu Li Masters, here takes us on a brilliant and penetrating exploration of the new phase of evolution we have now entered.

With lucidity and elegance, Zukav explains that we are evolving from a species that pursues power based upon the perceptions of the five senses, external power, into a species that pursues authentic power, power that is based upon the perceptions and values of the spirit. He shows how the pursuit of external power has produced our survival-of-the-fittest understanding of evolution, generated conflict between lovers, communities, and superpowers, and brought us to the edge of destruction.

Using his scientist's eye and philosopher's heart, Zukav shows how infusing the activities of life with reverence, compassion, and trust makes them come alive with meaning and purpose. He illustrates how the emerging values of the spirit are changing marriages into spiritual partnerships, psychology into spiritual psychology, and transforming our everyday lives. The Seat of the Soul describes the remarkable journey to the spirit that each of us is on.

My New Favorite Book

I heard a lot about this book and after a few chapters thought "what's the big deal" but then it suddenly hit me and I couldn't stop listening to the audible and reading the hard copy. If you are in a space to enhance your soul and you are open to learning this is a good read. I like to play the audible version especially since you can hear the author's own voice. This book is a great tool to use in life and I believe I will be rereading it and listening to the words for many years to come. #Audible1

VERY ENLIGHTENING TEXT

A must read for ALL but only the Spiritually Minded Ones will find it very ENLIGHTENING.
Gary, the Author did a great job at reading it himself. His voice is so soothing.
I listened to it twice ..... just to let his voice echo in my ears.
Many of the Statement Gary made in the book, I already knew and has proven.
So glad he just confirms it for me.
Thank you Gary, Thank you Oprah for promoting this book.
I knew of Gary through you. Blessings

A must read

When Maya Angelo mentioned in the opening the need for a copy at your bedside and one in the kitchen my interstate was piqued. Now I understand why. After listening to this book twice, now heading into a 3rd, I feel expanded, curious, and filled with hope.

May you awaken to your truth.

Great for those who are curious and open minded

There are some wild ideas in this book. Some of which I’ve heard before, But much of it is new to me. Regardless of your personal and/or religious beliefs, there is a plethora or knowledge and valuable insights in this book. Even if you don’t share all of the beliefs put forth in this book, it’s a read that is valuable to gain new perspectives.

This book is a blessing ! I wanted to read it a few years ago but 2020 seems to be the perfect timing. The Seat of the Soul is a great within experience, thanks M. ZUKAV

Doctrine plutôt que sagesse

J’ai acheté ce livre parce que je suis fan d’Oprah et j’ai été contente avec ses propositions souvent antérieurement.
Ai-je accrue mes connaissances? – Non. Ai-je appris de nouvelles choses? – Non plus.
Ce livre n’est pas un livre de sagesse; Zukav décrit une doctrine où l’on peut clairement voire ses racines dans la anthropocentrique culture chrétienne, mélangé avec sa propre imagination fantastique. Il manque des explications sur la base de ses idées que ce soit.
Animals have a group soul. Dolphins are dying because they are exhausted and have decided collectively through their group consciousness to abandon the Earth. – Une belle déclaration pour justifier le comportement arrogant de l'homme sur la planète et la destruction du reste du monde vivant. Très inquiétant!!

A True Spiritual Classic

Listening to Gary Zukav calmly explaining his views on spirituality, you would never guess that he was once a Green Beret serving in Vietnam and, by his own confession, a former sex addict (listen to his very honest Miboso interview at his website, www.zukav.com). And yet here is a man who realized that facing enemies out in the jungles of Vietnam and sleeping around with women were actually ways to avoid facing his inner enemies of fear and insecurity. Here is a man who changed from an angry soldier trained to kill into a quiet, gentle human being trained to love. Anyone who has seen him on Oprah (where he was introduced to most of us) has witnessed his gentleness and humility.

Gary's personal journey is an example of what he believes humanity is experiencing as a whole: we are beginning to realize that controlling other people and outer circumstances cannot bring us true happiness and fulfillment. We are also beginning to acknowledge that dimensions of reality beyond the five senses exist, and that we interact with those dimensions. To sum up, we are transforming from five-sensory humans into multi-sensory humans. "The Seat of the Soul" is a personal guide to that transformation.

A summary might go like this: your soul picks aspects of itself that desire growth and healing, and then incarnates into a physical form having those aspects. You then draw to yourself people and experiences that awaken the unhealed parts of you and provide opportunities to consciously change your choices. When you stop making choices from fear and instead choose to act in love and trust, you experience healing and growth on your spiritual path. Paying attention to your emotions and your intuitions is very important in this process, as well as honest analysis of your intentions in every situation. And you always have help available in the form of nonphysical guides and teachers.

The book is well-written, and I found Mr. Zukav's reading to be perfect: calm and clear.

This book will bring about a paradigm shift in you

This book was amazing. I have yet to do the study guide although I've listened to it and plan to print the study guide out. The book itself though is DEEP!! You really have to hit pause and think about the things that are being said. This book is one of those that can change your life and leave a lasting impression on all the people who know you.

Self-help in a 6 hour lecture

What made the experience of listening to The Seat of the Soul the most enjoyable?

What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

His tone and peacefull, not forceful method of teaching.

Have you listened to any of Gary Zukav’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes.

I broke this reading into 6 one hour nights (one week) to absorb and process while not overloading at one setting and losing the points that were made.

So much to learn

Would you consider the audio edition of The Seat of the Soul to be better than the print version?

I am listening again to catch more valuable information. Well written so it is much easier to understand.

Learned so much

When I first started the book i got to about half of it and loved it, then got a little tired of it and couldn't understand very much, maybe was not the right time, few months passed and then tried it again, just finished it and loved it, now, I was ready for the lesson!!
You have to find the right moment for it! I would listen to it again for sure and keep learning more!
The only thing that didn't like is that the last chapters he reminds you every time to go to his web page for exercises but after the 3rd time it gets annoying!

Gary give timely, logical, loving advice

Would you listen to The Seat of the Soul again? Why?

I have listened to this book twice now and have gotten a lot out of it both times. I heard and understood things the second time that I did not the first. It is my guess this will be true for the next time I listen.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Seat of the Soul?

So much of was important.

Which character – as performed by Gary Zukav – was your favorite?

There were no characters but I found his way of reading the book quite comfortable to listen to for long periods of time.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I had a profound reaction.

Any additional comments?

This the type of book will fall into your hands when you are ready for it. I read it a couple of years ago and find that this time

Struggled to Grasp

I completely agree with the Law of Atttaction, heart connection, and vibrational energy; however, I struggled to grasp the concepts of karma from past lives, let alone past lives. I really wanted to like this book, but the farther along I got in this audio reading, the more challenged I felt in comprehending it.
