25th Anniversary Edition with a Study Guide
“If there was just one book on this planet that I could recommend that you read, it would be this book, The Seat of the Soul by Gary Zukav. It has been for me, one of, if not the most powerful book I’ve ever read, except for the bible.”
“I suggest to the new Zukav reader to draw close to share this book with someone who has firm nerve and a wonderful sense of humor because when Zukav’s ideas stop challenging you, you will laugh with the wonderful laughter of the discoverer who has found a new continent.”
“The Seat of the Soul is a very important book tome.
—Paul Coelho, author of The Alchemist
“There are two books that I absolutely live my life by. This is one of them.”
—Jay Z on Oprah.com

Prefaces by Oprah Winfrey and Maya Angelou and a new foreword from Gary Zukav update the twenty-fifth anniversary edition.

At the end of each chapter there is a link to an online extension with a video, meditation, exercises, and support for creating your own study group.
With the same masterful skill he used to demystify scientific abstraction and quantum physics in his award-winning Dancing with the Wu Li Masters, Gary Zukav takes us on a penetrating exploration of the new phase of evolution humanity has entered.
With lucidity and elegance, Zukav explains that we are evolving from a species that understands power as the ability to manipulate and control—external power—into a species that understands power as the alignment of the personality with the soul—authentic power. Our evolution now requires each of us to make the values of the soul our own: harmony, cooperation, sharing, and reverence for Life. Using his scientist’s eye and philosopher’s heart, Zukav shows how infusing our activities with compassion and trust enlivens them 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.
A new species is being born inside of us. The Seat of the Soul is about this birth, what it means, and how we can participate in it joyfully.

More praise for THE SEAT OF THE SOUL
“The Seat of the Soul changed the way I see myself. It changed the way I view the world. It caused a profound shift in the way I conduct all my relationships, business and personal. . . . I’ve taught leadership classes at the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls with the help of The Seat of the Soul. I’ve used its principles to teach elementary school students, high school students, even MBAs at the Kellogg School of Management. I get a surge of delight every single time someone reads this book and feels the amazement I felt 25 years ago.”
“There are two books that I absolutely live my life by. This is one of them. Growing up, I was always curious about religion. This book made the most sense to me; it’s about the way you live your life. I believe in karma and doing the right thing even if it may not advance you as far as you want. If every single person felt the same way about karma and intention, then the world gets fixed tomorrow. But temptation gets in the way. Zukav is right: It may take lifetimes to learn.
—Jay Z on Oprah.com
“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, MD, (former) Chairman of Psychiatry, Mt. Sinai Medical Center, author of Many Lives, Many Masters
“How remarkable—to find that one of our finest interpreters of frontier science is equally conversant with the human spirit. This augurs well for our times.”
—Huston Smith, PhD, former professor of philosophy, MIT, renowned world religions scholar, author of The Religions of Man
