With the same extraordinary skill that he used to demystify scientific abstraction and the new physics, Gary Zukay, 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.

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? --Amazon.comReview:

Book Description Fireside, 1990. Soft cover. Condition: New. 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. Copyright 1989 Reed Business Information, Inc. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title. From Library Journal Zukav describes a new form of evolution in which humans learn to value authentic powerApower based on the perceptions and values of the spirit. Authentic power differs from external power in that external power is based on perceptions of the five senses and is thus missing a dimension. Zukav (The Dancing Wu Li Masters) recommends that in order to achieve wholeness, we need to recognize a realm outside and beyond ourselves. He insists that we not become caught up in definitions of this higher power or names. The important thing is that we recognize that we need this sixth sense in order to discover the true meaning of life. The Seat of the Soul depicts the transformation from an ordinary, externally powered world to an authentic, new-dimensional life. Although the author seems to come to few conclusions about the benefits of the authentic self or how to achieve this state, this work, narrate. Seller Inventory # 0001953
