The Seat Of The Soul Institute Invites You To Explore…

A New 15-Module Course Designed To Support You In Creating With Love 

Even When Fear Is Active Within You

The old human consciousness required us to survive in order to evolve. Surviving required manipulation and control. That is external power.

Yet pursuing external power does not work anymore. Not if we want to build lives of lasting fulfillment.

For instance, have you ever tried pushing your opinion in a relationship by telling them over and over what you believe is right and true? It has happened to most of us – and it’s how we destroy a relationship.

External power is now POISON.  

Unconsciously acting on your painful emotions, instead of experiencing them fully, is pursuing external power.

That continually creates broken relationships. Perfectionism. Obsessive thoughts that repeat over and over. Addictions. And a never-ending cycle driven by fear.

 Our new call to evolution – the new path to creating a life of fulfillment, meaning, purpose, joy and love – now requires your heart. It requires you to understand power differently.

Authentic power, real genuine power, is the journey of aligning your personality with your soul. Your soul's intentions are harmony, cooperation, sharing, and reverence for Life.

So, if you want to step out of bed every morning to a life aligned with the intentions of your soul… 


Catch yourself judging, blaming, criticizing, or gossiping

Feel overwhelmed by anger, jealousy, impatience, or anxiety

Long for more meaning and purpose in your life

Feel superior, inferior, entitled, or need to please

Desire deeper and more genuine connections with people

Search for more joy and gratitude in your experiences

Want to forgive, but feel that you can’t

Creating Authentic Power is the way beyond all of these. Authentic power is the new evolutionary requirement – your path to real emotional freedom.

Imagine a life where you act from love even if you are staring eye-to-eye with your greatest fear. Even if you have spent years cut off from people you care about. Even if you have a history of abuse. Even if you feel unworthy of love. 


➝  Discover and magnify the parts of your personality that bring meaning and delight into your life – whether you think your world is falling apart or your negative emotions are in the driver’s seat

➝  Move beyond the control of destructive parts of your personality that create painful experiences unconsciously and consciously create with constructive ones – so that new doors open for you to find fulfillment

➝  Break free of the parts of your personality that stop you from giving your unique gifts – so that your intuition becomes clearer, your creativity becomes focused, and you can joyfully give the gifts you were born to 

Are you ready to bring this power into your life?

Gary your work has come into my life as I am going through a difficult separation that most likely will lead to divorce. I am finding that often my intention in my marriage was fear instead of love. Thank you for making the world better one book at a time.

I've been sober and recovering for 666 days now. Much of the momentum I manifested was due to integrating inner language I learned from your powerful words regarding authentic power and self-compassion and LOVE. Thank you. I am sending big love to you and yours Gary. Namaste.

I consider you one of my most influential teachers and a genuine human being. The first time I read one of your books, I had tears rolling down my face as my soul was touched in a familiar way. Because of you I am not afraid of death. Your words resonate with me like no one else's. You have brought out all the things my soul already knew but could not conceptualize.

Tesha C.

Your books have brought me so much clarity, awareness and direction.

I cannot extend enough thanks for the insight I have received and the tools you have both given me.
