The Life of Gary Zukav

Gary Zukav was born in Texas on October 14, 1942. He excelled in school, graduated from high school as a valedictorian, and went on to study at Harvard. He came of age during the 60s and became very sympathetic with the civil rights movement. He volunteered for a time with the NAACP and worked under Charles Evers, the brother of Medgar Evers.

Later he went on to serve in Viet Nam as an army officer. After discharge from the army, Zukav moved to San Francisco during 1970 and lived a counterculture lifestyle. His life was forever changed five years later when he was introduced to quantum physics.


Gary Zukav came to view physics as a spiritual discipline rather than a mathematical one. His first book, 'The Dancing Wu Li Masters: An Overview of the New Physics,' explored quantum physics and relativity. It received several awards and much acclaim. Zukav continued his spiritual quest by moving to Mount Shasta in 1987 where he lived in a cabin in the wilderness and described himself as a secular monk.

After his spiritual understanding had deepened, he wrote his second book, 'Seat of the Soul.' It went on to become a bestseller and brought Zukav much fame. As a result, he appeared on the Oprah Show over 30 times to discuss the teachings presented in his book.

In 1999, Gary Zukav co-founded the Seat of the Soul Institute with the mission to provide the tools and inspiration needed by humanity to develop authentic power.

  'Seat of the Soul' was published in 1989. It stayed in the number one spot of the New York Times Bestseller List for 31 weeks and after dropping from the top spot, it stayed on the list for three years. Gary Zukav remarked that 'Dancing Wu Li Masters' was written to open minds and 'Seat of the Soul' was written to open hearts.
