The anniversary edition of this beloved bestseller is celebrated in Prefaces by Oprah Winfrey and Maya Angelou and contains a new Foreword by the author, website links, and a new Study Guide to help readers find even deeper meaning and fulfillment. The Seat of the Soul encourages you 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. Beginning with evolution, Gary Zukav takes you on a penetrating exploration of the new phase humanity has entered: 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 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 us how to participate fully in this evolution, enlivening our everyday activities and all of our relationships with meaning and purpose. The Seat of the Soul has sold millions of copies around the globe, and as it changes lives, more and more people begin to live by the values of the spirit. Indeed, a new world is emerging, and this book brings its message to you.

"Seat of the Soul" is not as reader-friendly as you might think from a former bestseller. But it is a good positive message. It's challenging in the realm of personal growth--to apply what you're reading, you have to get out of your comfort zone and go against old behaviors and attitudes. Ultimately, though, the ideas are universal. In my own case I found that it dovetails in many ways with the 12 Steps and with some Christian reading I've done, and with a few ideas I've picked up in a general way from the world of physics and astronomy (and the author does bring science in on a regular a basis). But at any rate, I seem to have picked it up when I was ready and open to it; I'm guessing if it's not the right book for you at the right time (and there's no judgment in that, I don't mean that in a snooty "more evolved than thou" sort of way), it might seem like New Age babbling. Karma and reincarnation are tough concepts to wrap one's head around, and the idea of something like parallel universes of conscious entities all affecting one another, us included, is also a difficult one. But, I just seem to have hit this book when I was kind of calmly open to such ideas. I don't swallow it all without any skepticism and I'm not going to throw everything over and make it my guiding "religion", but it has been simply more good input on the journey. My suggestion: take what you need and leave the rest.

not a keeper
Brings nothing new to the table and kind of wanders around not getting to any kind of point(s).
Extremely hard to stay interested to even finish
