Gary Zukav

New York Times Best Selling Author and Founder of the Seat of the Soul Institute

Gary Zukav’s gentle presence, humor, and wisdom have inspired millions to realize their greatest potential. Zukav is the author of four consecutive New York Times bestsellers, with over six million copies sold, including The Seat of the Soul, NY Times #1 Best Seller for 31 weeks, on the NY Times Best Seller list three years.

Zukav is dedicated to the current extraordinary transformation in human consciousness—an unprecedented event in the human experience. This transformation is no less than a revolution of the soul, one that touches the heart of all humanity and is based on spiritual growth, conscious choices, and deep celebration and reverence for Life.

For years, Zukav has conveyed the most complex insights in language all can understand. Over and over, he challenges us to see the depth of our potential in the world…and act on that awareness. In 1979, The Dancing Wu Li Masters plumbed the depths of quantum physics and relativity, winning The American Book Award for Science. The celebrated #1 New York Times bestselling The Seat of the Soul (1989) led the way to seeing the alignment of the personality and the soul as the fulfillment of life and captured the imagination of millions. His Soul Stories, and then, with Linda Francis, The Heart of the Soul: Emotional Awareness, and The Mind of the Soul: Responsible Choice also became New York Times bestsellers. Zukav is honored around the world for his clear telling of deep wisdom. Translations of his books now appear in 32 languages.

Zukav’s numerous appearances on The Oprah Winfrey Show and books have endeared him to people around the world. He is a recipient of the Light of God Award from Unity Worldwide Ministries, the Pathfinder Award from the World Business Academy, and the Einstein Award from the Albert Einstein College of Medicine for Contributions to the Psychosocial Growth of Humanity, among others. He is a Harvard graduate with a degree in International Relations; a former U.S. Army Special Forces (Green Beret) officer with Vietnam service; and a grandfather. He lives in Oregon with his spiritual partner Linda Francis, co-founder with him of the Seat of the Soul Institute:

Maya Angelou (American Poet Laureate): “When Zukav’s ideas stop challenging you, you will laugh with the wonderful laughter of the discoverer who has found a new content.”

Oprah Winfrey: “The Seat of the Soul changed the way I see myself. It changed the way I view the world. It caused a profound shift in the way I conduct all my relationships, business and personal.”

Oprah Winfrey: “I’ve taught leadership classes at the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls with the help of The Seat of the Soul. I’ve used its principles to teach elementary school students, high school students, even MBA’s at the Kellogg School of Management.”

Houston Smith (Professor Emeritus of Philosophy, MIT: “How remarkable – to find that one of our finest intrepreters of frontier science is equally conversant with the human spirit.”

Brian Weiss (Chairman of Psychiatry, Mt. Sinai Medical Center, Miami)”: “Filled with wisdom and written in a beautifully simple, almost poetic style, The Seat of the Soul is a book to be savored.”
