Featuring a foreword by Oprah Winfrey and a preface by Maya Angelou, the twenty-fifth anniversary edition of Gary Zukav’s #1 New York Times bestselling classic also contains a new introduction by the author and resources for deeper study.

With the same masterful skill he used to demystify scientific abstraction and quantum physics in the award-winning The Dancing Wu Li Masters, Gary Zukav takes us on a penetrating exploration of the next phase in humanity’s evolution.

With lucidity and elegance, Zukav explains that we are evolving from a species that uses 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. With his scientist’s eye and philosopher’s heart, Zukav shows how infusing our actions with compassion and trust gives them meaning and purpose. He illustrates how the emerging values of the spirit are changing marriages into soulful partnerships, psychology into thoughtful analysis, and deeply affecting our everyday lives.

A new species is being born inside each of us and The Seat of the Soul offers enlightening details about this birth, what it means, and how we can participate in it joyfully.

Chapter One
During the years that I was writing The Dancing Wu Li Masters and after, I was drawn again and again to the writings of William James, Carl Jung, Benjamin Lee Whorf, Niels Bohr and Albert Einstein. I returned to them repeatedly. I found in them something special, although it was not until later that I was able to understand that specialness: these fellow humans reached for something greater than they were able to express directly through their work. They saw more than they could express in the language of psychology or linguistics or physics, and they sought to share what they saw. It--is what they sought to share through... see more
