More About Gary Zukav. . .
Gary Zukav questions the Western model of the soul, alleging that the human species is in the midst of a great transformation, evolving from a species that pursues power based upon the perceptions of the five senses–“external power”–to one that pursues power based upon perceptions of the soul–“authentic power.” Gary Zukav believes that humans are immortal souls first, physical beings second, and that once we become conscious of this transformation–once we align our personalities with our soul–we will stimulate our spiritual growth and become better people in the process. This insightful, lucid synthesis of modern psychology and new-age principles has been described as the “physics of the soul.” Who better to explain such heady concepts than Gary Zukav?
Gary Zukav can help audiences evolve into multi-sensory beings, who “value love more than the physical world.” As shown in The Dancing Wu Li Masters, his bestselling exploration of physics, Gary Zukav has a gift for presenting complex, even mind-boggling concepts in clearly worded and reasoned logic. He leads audiences on an inspirational and potentially life-changing journey into the seemingly intangible realm of the spirit. Gary Zukav explains why increased sensory perception will mark the next phase of human evolution, how the power of choice can change your existence, and what you can do to infuse your life with more compassion, trust, and understanding.
