With the same extraordinary skill that he used to demystify scientific abstraction and
the new physics, Gary Zukav, 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.
From The Forward
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 the medium of their work that drew me to them.
They were mystics. That is my word. They would not use such language, but they knew it. They feared that their careers might become contaminated by association with those who did not work within the scientific model, but in the depths of their own ...
