Publisher's Summary

With the rare combination of profound psychological insight and deep spirituality that has already drawn millions of readers to his national best-sellers, including The Seat of the Soul, prizewinning author Gary Zukav now joins with his spiritual partner Linda Francis to help us develop a new emotional awareness that is central to our spiritual development.

In The Seat of the Soul, Zukav brilliantly set forth his fundamental concepts, explaining how the expansion of human perception beyond the five senses leads to a new understanding of power as the alignment of the personality with the soul - "authentic power". In Soul Stories, he showed how such concepts as harmony, cooperation, sharing, and reverence for Life express themselves in other people's lives. Now, in The Heart of the Soul, he and Francis take the next major step forward in showing us the importance of emotional awareness in applying these concepts to our daily lives.

Life Changing

I started with the hard copy and got the audio to really internalise this material.

This book has directly changed the course of my life. The added awareness is incredible to say the least.

Get the print book but this is good as well

You will want to be able to skip around in the book and look at the illustrations and slow down for the exercises. But the audio is excellent for 'sounding down' the information, and staying inspired to understand your emotional messages, and to keep processing in 'love and trust.'

This book is creating Master’s of Emotional Dynamics!

I just read the last page and I’m full of gratitude. I’ve been provided with a ton of ‘on the spot exercises’ to aid me in discovering and feeling, my emotions.
I’ve already begun.

Great on-going discussion about how our repressed, unknown, and unexplored emotions are impacting us, our relationships and our world.

Many thanks to Gary Zukav, Linda Francis and their team.

Reflective and Insightful

Would you listen to The Heart of the Soul again? Why?

Yes, I plan on listening (or reading) this book again. It has very ithought provoking content by Gary Zukav explaining how our emotions are "gifts."

What did you like best about this story?

I liked the author's use of how to consider not only our own behaviors, but those around us who we love. Emotional awareness is what we really need to pursue and to live life to it's fullest. In everything - painful adversity though our most joyous moments - it's all part of of the journey and necessary for life fulfillment. Mr. Zukav reminds us if we don't take the time to "feel" our emotions, we lose out on the gift it's meant to give us. By knowing our chakra responses, and truly feeling our body's messages, we should be able to exude positive energy be trusting of whatever we feel.. When we negate feelings consequences will take their toll on our mind and bodies - examples are given.

What does Gary Zukav and Linda Francis bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The 'tone' of the book is better than pacing it out by reading it. They have just enough inflection to bring out the points to remember. I suggest taking this book a chapter at a time and stopping to reflect when urged to do so.

What insight do you think you’ll apply from The Heart of the Soul?

I will be re-addressing each section of the last 3 chapters one at a time and stopping to reflect when urged to do so. It is in learning to be quiet and feel emotions rather than blocking them out, and accepting them..

Thank you Mr. Zukav

I finally got around to checking this author out and I feel like I have found the exactly what I have been looking for the last few years.

In the last two weeks, I have read three of his books. Then Heart of the Soul, explains emotions as messengers and step by step how to work with them.
The Mind of the Soul, a very clear explanation of how we are always making choices and how that dictates our lives. For me, it also spoke to how we are evolving and how that is playing out in what is happening right now.
Spiritual Partnership the journey to authentic power, it is about all human relationship and the evolution of the concept of relationships that is happening as we speak.

For me, all three books are working together to paint a picture that up till now has only been in my head. Therefore it has been hard to stay on track with this picture. But these books with there very clear explanations and step by step suggestion are really helping me to bring forth that picture.

Agree with others...

It's better to get this in hard copy since each chapter has a workbook style.

Wonderful Life Changing Tool! Thank you XOXO

I am so thankful to find this at this time in my life. Fighting cancer is all about learning how to process your Emotions. Disease is a battle for the soul and this teaches how to pick your weapon: Love and how to choose it over Fear. Well done!

Life changing book

Absolutely wonderful to listen to another great book of them.
I’ve definitely become more aware of my emotions and my family’s emotions.
It helps me understand what we’re all going through when we’re in pain. Sometimes we wear different masks and do various things compulsively to hide our emotional pain. I’ve learn to feel and know my energy system and be aware of my emotions of Love & Trust. Or Fear & Doubt.
Excellent book I could write so much about it. A must “listened” :)

Hits the emotional button!

A very 'take no prisoners' approach to emotional attachments, lack of respect for oneself and stop making excuses. Listen to it a few times, your souls journey may just get a lot better. Worth recommending
