A foreword by Oprah Winfrey and a preface by Maya Angelou update the twenty-fifth anniversary edition of the #1 New York
Times bestselling classic of the New Age category, along with a new introduction by the author, a discussion group
guide, and website links for deeper study.
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.
