by Gary Zukav, Linda Francis

Free Press | August 6, 2002 | Trade Paperback

The Heart of the Soul: Emotional Awareness is rated 5 out of 5 by 3.
"THE LONGEST JOURNEY YOU WILL MAKE IN
YOUR LIFE IS FROM YOUR HEAD TO YOUR HEART."

With the rare combination of profound psychological insight and deep spirituality that has already drawn millions of readers to his two great national bestsellers, The Seat of the Soul and Soul Stories, 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 own daily lives.

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from if you are serious about getting happy! I've read quiet a few self help-growth books over the last twenty years or so, including a few of Gary's previous works. By far this book, the seat of the soul, combines all the necessary information anyone would ever require if they are truly serious about wanting to find out why they continue to feel like there's something missing ...they are not living the best life they can. The book's primary focus is for the reader to become concious to what is happening in their body (physical sensations), mind (thoughts), emotions and also ties in very nicely our energy centres to answer the questions; why we feel drained and how we can stop it. It was a fantastic eye opener on why I feel the way I do in some situations and why it's so easy to blame others. I have finally discovered my defense mecanism(s). If you have journeyed to a point where you are ready to honestly look internally and intuitively know there’s got to be more- this book is for you...it will change your life. You can no longer pretend you don't know how to be truly happy!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Emotional enlightenment! I am a huge fan of Gary Zukav. His insights and principles are so dynamic that I wonder where his genius resides. This particular masterpiece #3 provides a lot of strategy on becoming more emotionally aware, and therefore more connected to the soul. Superbly written with interesting artistry...this one hits home as I can relate to the emotional places he speaks of. Loved it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from His best book so far Zukav also wrote The seat of the Soul and Soul Stories but, in my opinion, this new one is the best. It follows up on the other two but it is more practical. It gave me a way of scanning my body anytime I want in order to know what is going with myself. In short, it helped me understanding myself and continues to do so. On the down side, some ideas are repeated throughout but, in retrospect, it doesn't hurt.

Read from the Book

Welcome Our adopted Sioux uncle once told me, "Nephew, the longest journey that you will make in your life is from your head to your heart," gently touching his forehead and then his chest. Linda Francis, my spiritual partner, and I are still on that journey, and so are you. Everyone is on it. The journey into the heart is our future and our only way of creating a future. It is movement toward wholeness, integrity, and compassion. It is the healing each of us longs for, and the healing that each of us must accomplish if we are to move forward into our fullest potential. Learning to experience emotions is one of the most difficult tasks that can be undertaken. Many people do not know that they are angry, even when rage flows through them like a river. Some do not know that they are grieving, even when sorrow is the only sun that rises for them in the morning. Most people think of themselves as experiencing emotions only when powerfully emotional currents erupt through their lives, disturbing routines devoted to activities, accomplishments, or survival. Emotional awareness -? becoming aware of everything that you are feeling at every moment -? is very difficult because we experience so much pain each moment. Becoming aware of our emotions means becoming aware of pain. It is challenging, difficult, and unpleasant. It is also more rewarding than most of us can imagine. That is because most of us cannot imagine a life free from compulsions, fixations, obsessions, and addictions, i
