This book is new-agey and written for an Oprah audience with no background in philosophy, religion (east or west), or science. The parts of the book that are good are the parts stolen (without citation or even a nod) from either Plato's Republic or Buddhism. Zukav makes many grandiose metaphysical claims but doesn't feel the need to once offer an argument as to how he has come about this knowledge he has about; for instance, Angels, Teachers, how dolphin souls become human souls, or why souls ne [...]

I gave this book 5 stars not for what I found in the book, but for what I found within myself when reading it. I found the book to be a spark which ignited a realization within me of who I really was and the experience of being who I really was, within my body and within this reality. For those who already experience life as Neo did within the Matrix or as the programers did within the video game(as in the movie Tron), you'll appreciate his eye opening analogies and affirm your own self navigati [...]

Living a conscious life is the main thrust of this book -- be "awake" as you live your life to live a more meaningful life. As you become conscious of your actions you begin to become whole. One aspect of becoming whole is letting go of the mental baggage that keeps you chained to old bad habits, to fears and doubts that keep you from growing and realizing your own great potential.I found this book to be very thought provoking. Several times throughout the book I found myself saying "YES" to the [...]

The sole purpose of this book seems to be to set him up as a guru to sell his workshops. He constantly makes broad unsupported universal statements and asserts things without evidence. I felt quite manipulated and just wanted him to stop including me in his royal "we". He got off on the wrong foot with me on the first chapter "Evolution". Everything he says about scientific evolution is wrong. His point is that "our" beliefs about evolution are wrong. Well, *his* beliefs about evolution certainl [...]

I found The Dancing Wu Li Masters interesting when I read it way back when, so I picked this book up expecting to find Gary Zukav moving, like Fritjof Capra from Physics (The Tao of Physics) to a wider ecological and psychological world view exploration (The Turning Point). The Seat of the Soul was very disappointing and I abandoned it after a couple of chapters and some fast skimming. As expected, Zukav starts by talking about biological evolution, but, unexpectedly, he completely misunderstand [...]

This book, along with Emotional Alchemy, is worth every moment I have spent reading it, studying and pondering it. It really stretches one past the Judeo-Christian ethic of good and evil, light and dark, reward and punishment. It helps to solidify the niggling wonders you have about where we come from and where we will return. More importantly, it helps you to consider why you are here, why you wished to be here now, and what your mission could be.While it's gotten a bad wrap as one of the myria [...]

If you know me at all, you'll see that spirituality is extremely important to me. I've never been one for religion or labels, but I have been extremely intrigued by sources of truth and wisdom for as long as I can remember. This book was in my Nook library for years before I got around to reading it. It came at the precise time in my life when I needed it most and offered up its words as a sweet benediction. Have you ever experienced a dark night of the soul? Have you ever wondered why bad thing [...]

I remembered having read this book when rereading Alan Watts' The Wisdom of Insecurity, not that the two are comparable. Watts is carefully reasoning his way through the most profound questions of life, and Zukav simply makes bold claims without any indication of how he arrived at them. I got about two-thirds of the way through The Seat of the Soul before the accumulating weight of these claims (e.g animals can be reincarnated as humans, but only in primitive settings where the transition isn't [...]

To review the titles of the chapters-there is Evolution, Karma, Reverence, Heart, Intuition, Light, Intention, Choice, Addiction, Relationships, Souls, Psychology, Illusion, Power, and Trust. I found Reverence and Intention to be the most enlightening. Most self-help/self-awareness books do not approach the subject of respect, honor, and reverence within the karmic framework of actions and reactions. I think a great deal of this book could be supported with biblical scripture and I would love fo [...]

This book has been really helpful. I had some trouble getting into it because some of the writing is a bit cyclical and hard to read. But I think this is mostly because the subject being dealt with doesn't really have a good language to express the ideas. Therefore reading it from this perspective it is a really well written book that deals with concepts that don't fit into the English language so well.He gave a really good explanation of how humanity is evolving and goes in depth into what is g [...]

Let me explain my rating of 3 stars first. I am required to put a rating on, but do not want to do so on this book. So the 3 stars are my attempt not to rate the book, rather than a rating so disregard it totally. Since the book argues that judging is harmful to the soul and I agree with that, I will try to avoid being judgmental as much as I am able, in order to be fair to the spirit of this book.Let me share with you my reactions to the book. The author has written a series of 16 interrelated [...]

I heard his "Dancing Wu Li Masters" was an interesting read so I picked up this one as the title seemed interesting to me. I thought I might get into something deep in the way of the relation of matter to energy and information. Nope. This guy has gone off the deep end (as a sufi friend of mine so generously put it). This gem of a book contains not only (really stupid) unsupported speculation without so much as a reference or footnote, but to add to the reader's frustration, the book does not ev [...]

I couldn't put this book down. I even read some chapters over and over, again, before moving on to the next. I'm a Christain who loves being a Christain; who loves God, the Light; and who loves Jesus, my Savior. Reading this book not only enlightened me, but gave me clarity to things that I could not quite understand. This book gave me a more in-depth understanding to the Word. During my reading I laughed, cried and rejoiced. I can related so much to Mr. Zukav's concepts. Passages and scriptures [...]

Gary Zukov's easy to understand book goes right to the essence of who we are under the surface of our exterior selves. In simple terms, he explores the nonphysical aspects of our beings and shows how we can perceive existence using more than just our usual bodily sense mechanisms.Our soul is there to be understood and explored, Zukov maintains. The more we recognize it and how it functions, he says, the better able we will be to make effective course corrections in our lives. The following quote [...]

I read this book with a group of friends and it was chosen by another member of the group as we wanted to gain a better sense of the nature of our souls in a common faith journey. The amorphous concept of a soul is one that we hear much about over the course of one's spiritual life. But what is it, really? How can it be shaped by our own conduct for better or worse while we live? And what happens when life ends? How could the concept of sculpting a soul over a lifetime and beyond improve the way [...]

I have to admit that I only read half of it. My friend and I were reading it together and finding a lot of things that we didn't like and didn't agree with. That being said, there were things we *did* like, but we were already far along enough on our own spiritual journeys that we knew them already. This book left us questions like, "Where did this information come from?" and "Why do you believe this?" etc. This book felt like a person who had come to some interesting conclusions at the beginnin [...]

I don't know how Gary Zukav does it, but this book speaks to me like very few books ever have. I just read this book for the third time and I am reminded why so many people love this author so much. Every time I read it I find new meanings, new inspiration and new ways of looking at myself and my circumstances that help me grow as a person and be happier. I also highly recommend "Open Your Mind, Open Your Life" by Taro Gold which makes a great companion book to all of Zukav's writing. Excellent! [...]

I had heard about this book for years. I started it at a dentist's office while waiting and read the first few pages. Didn't care for it at the time and forgot all about it. After reading The Untethered Soul, which I ABSOLUTELY ADORED!, I wanted another book that talked about 'the seat of the soul' and well, this book has the NAME on the cover so it was a no-brainer. I listened to the audio version, narrated by none other than Gary Zukav.Struggled between giving it a 3- and 4- star. It's a great [...]

Disappointing. I usually really enjoy books by authors featured on Super Soul Sunday. This book started with promise. I loved the idea of soul variety and unfinished karma. However, he lost me at animals don't have individual souls. Here we go again with an author that features humans as the top soul host. Really? How is the conclusion reached? He gives not one shred of thought to back up any of his claims. It's a book that is pulled straight out of a body part. I wasn't looking for science law, [...]

I read this book years ago after Oprah had the author on her show. I've never forgotten how much I detested this book. God help us there is now a 25th anniversary edition! This book is a complete load of horse puckies. I remember reading in disbelief the complete doo-doo that Gary Zukav had to say about dolphins beaching themselves (like he personally knows what dolphins are thinking). I did a search on the internet and was able to find the excerpt. Here it is:"The dolphin soul is leaving the Ea [...]

I was flipping through the TV channels, and paused for a few seconds on OWN. Oprah Winfrey was talking to Gary Zukav about The Seat of the Soul. I thought it sounded interesting. The next day for some reason I lost audio on OWN and Oprah never spoke to me again. I got the audiobook and it sounded familiar. It was written in 1984. In the 1980's I read a lot of New Age stuff, and I figured I had it all memorized. Then in the second-to-the-last disc he said something about dolphins, and I knew I ha [...]

I found this book to be really mind opening. I agree with some of the other reviews in that the author does come across as relaying hard evidence but without the evidence. However, I feel that his approach is effective for the purpose. He does a fantastic job at allowing the reader to look at life from a much deeper perspective than we are normally used to. The information and theories presented have really resonated with me. I truly enjoyed this book and will definitely read it again.

I quote from the book says it all, "Without an awareness of your emotions you are not able to experience reverence. Reverence is not an emotion. It is a way of being, but the path to reverence is through your heart, and only an awareness of your feelings can open your heart," Gary Zukav.

I knew I would not like this book, but was talked into reading it by a few friends. I indeed did not like this book. I just don't buy his claims. I think he's right about being mindful of our intentions, but like what? Dolphins have a collective soul? A homeless person could be homeless because of things they did wrong in another life? WTF? I mean, I do love Oprah and Maya Angelou and maybe they see more than I do or something, but I don't think my soul is quite ready to evolve into its seat. I [...]

This book is a precise endeavor of the evolution of human body and its environment. Zukav started this book with the concept of Evolution and he divided human evolution in two categories known as five sensory human beings and multi-sensory human beings. He talks about it in the sense of most evolved and the multi-sensory human beings are more evolved than the five sensory. Zukav stresses upon the importance of this intricate journey of evolution in all species and how the dynamics of evolutions [...]

This book is full of ridiculous new age, pseudoscience, psychobabble. It almost sounds like a new age parody. It was so silly that I had to keep reminding myself that the author actually believes this stuff, that a lot of people do. It was the book that convinced Oprah Winfrey to transform her business from tabloid talk shows into a clearinghouse for spirituality and woo-woo philosophy.Much of this book is a meaningless stream of new age, and occasionally scientific-sounding, language. It takes [...]

The author begins his writing based on a faulty definition of truth. He twists historical events to suit his theories. Still the author has brought to light some very interesting ideas of human psychology. This writing brings to the reader the basic ideals of Buddhism but lacks practical solution to the more difficult matters of relationships. I got the feeling that he is talking himself into a spiritual belief but has not examined in depth the relationship between intention, forgiveness and tru [...]

I love this book but it is also one I never recommend to anyone. I might mention it as an option for someone to leaf through to see if it might be something they could appreciate, but it absolutely will not resonate with everyone. His view of the world, previous lives, and our current life, which he calls the "earth school" will either totally convince you or leave you a skeptic, while probably annoying you to no end.I don't think there is much middle ground because it is a large pill he gives y [...]

I'm not a quitter but in the case of this book I couldn't get through it. I'm a spiritual person. I believe in soul and much of what the author discusses, yet I just couldn't buy into much of what he says. His lack of references and authority combined with confusing, convoluted sentences made for a totally unenjoyable read. I'm surprised I stuck it out to chapter 5. Here was the final straw: "All of the energy of the soul does not incarnate. To incarnate, the soul creates a personality from thos [...]
