Based on the #1" New York Times" bestseller--a fascinating exploration of humanity's new phase of evolution Travel on an exciting, thought-provoking journey of discovery with the bestselling author of "The Dancing Wu Li Masters." With a scientist's eye and philosopher's heart, Gary Zukav illustrates our evolution from a species that pursues external power--power based upon the perceptions of the five senses--into a species that pursues authentic power--power based upon the perceptions of values of the spirit. In his simple, elegant, poetic style, Mr. Zukav explains how the pursuit of external power has produced our survival-of-the-fittest mentality and generated conflict between individuals, races, and nations. He shows how we create our own reality through our intentions and choices. Through a revealing study of reincarnation and karma, he describes how our previous lives affect our everyday acts of creation. He also shows how infusing the activities of life with reverence, compassion, and trust can make them come alive with new meaning and purpose. T"he Seat of the Soul" describes a remarkable voyage of transformation--a journey to new dimensions of spiritual discovery.
Publishers Weekly, 1989-01-13 ``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. (Mar.)
