“In Seth: the Ultimate Guide . . . Helfrich brings out the humanity
embedded in this material; there is no claim of infallibility, no dogma of
absolute truth, and no rejection of skepticism and critical thinking.
Instead, the Seth material provides a framework by which people can
better understand their world and how to interact with it. The vast scope
of this material is impressive, and Helfrich’s organization of it is a tribute
to his dedication to a formidable task, and to his articulation of the
transformational potential provided by the exercises and insights that
permeate these memorable texts, whatever their source.” ~ Stanley
Krippner, Ph.D., co-author Personal Mythology

“Helfrich’s writing is knowledgeable and informative. He presents


the exceptional and profound psychological and spiritual teachings of
Seth with clarity. Readers who do not know Seth’s work will find this an
excellent introduction, and those who are familiar with Seth’s
writings will find the book a useful and guide to go deeper.” ~ Arthur
Hastings, Ph.D., author of With the Tongues of Men and Angels: A Study
of Channeling

“Since the disincarnate entity Seth, along with other gifted spiritual
teachers, has provided me with deeper insights into the quantum physics
of the construction of the ego you may also find deeper insights into your
own ego in this book.” ~ Fred Alan Wolf, Ph.D., author of many books
including Dr. Quantum’s Little Book of Big Ideas, Mind into Matter, and
Matter into Feeling

“Paul Helfrich has, magnificently, and with perceptive awareness,


captured the important socio-psychological philosophy of Jane
Roberts/Seth. He has lovingly and skillfully shared a gift of significant
ideas, concepts and practices that can make our lives healthy and
productive.” ~ Gwendoline Y. Fortune, Ed. D., author of Weaving the
Journey Noni and the Great Grands

“Condensing any body of philosophical work into an effective and


meaningful reference is always a challenge (especially with one, like this,
that began with 49 volumes of source material). But Paul Helfrich has
done just that in Seth: the Ultimate Guide. This concise yet
comprehensive overview of the revelatory teachings of author Jane
Roberts and her channeled entity Seth provides an in-depth look at the
most significant lessons and insights of one of the 20th Century’s most
profound yet underrated visionaries.” ~ Brent Marchant, author, Get the
Picture: Conscious Creation Goes to the Movies

“Seth: the Ultimate Guide is a highly intelligent and readable


presentation of the Seth material. Helfrich concisely elucidates the often
complex Sethian concepts and provides a much needed new doorway into
our understanding of the reaches of human consciousness.” ~ Elizabeth
Cody Kimmel, author of The Boy on the Lion Throne: The Boyhood of
the 14th Dali Lama

“Paul Helfrich has done a beautiful job of liberating the spiritual and
psychological teachings of Seth from an earlier format that often
obscured as much as it revealed. At such a critical time in human history
we cannot overestimate the value of this gift re-given! Apply these
lessons diligently, and expect transformative results.” ~ James Bradford
Terrell, co-author of A Coaches Guide to Emotional Intelligence

“Only a compassionate, sensitive and seasoned practitioner like Paul


Helfrich could write Seth: the Ultimate Guide, a book for beginners as
well as those who have long studied and valued Seth’s ideas about
Consciousness and the Universe. Thank you Paul, for lighting the way to
Transcendence!” ~ Joyce A. Kovelman, Ph.D., Ph.D., author of Once
Upon a Soul

“I have always found the Seth material helpful for my personal


growth and I have always loved the integrity of the Jane and Rob
material. I endorse Paul’s book for helping create a positive context that
one can examine the many ideas that Seth offers for one’s growth in this
life.” ~ Charles Hauck, member of Jane’s ESP class and metaphysical
teacher

“This book totally rocks! As a long time Seth reader, Paul has boiled
down the core Seth concepts into one delicious book that you’ll be
reading many times to experience the depth and breadth of Seth!” ~ Andy
Dooley, Spiritual Comedian/Life Coach

Many thanks to the ninety-five folks who responded to my book
questionnaire and provided me with invaluable feedback about which
questions were the most important to ask (you know who you are!).
Big hugs to the more than five thousand intrepid souls who attended
various Seth conferences, gatherings, dos, and passed through the Sethnet
e-mail list since 1996. You helped me explore Seth’s ideas and
challenged me to find ways to explain them.

Special thanks to:

▪ Bob Friedman who believed in the need for this book.


▪ George Goodenow who introduced me to Bob Friedman and has
supported my work for many years.
▪ Brad Reynolds, Huston Smith, and Ken Wilber for permission to
use a variation of their charts on the Levels of Reality and Levels
of Selfhood.
▪ Carol Funk, Elena de la Peña, Joyce Kovelman, Brent Marchant,
and Christopher Johnson who provided critical feedback and
supported me during the dark days.
▪ Nicolas, Frieda, Leon, Mary Ann, Nick, Eric, and the rest of my
family for all the love and support these many years.
▪ My “partner in time”—JoRose—whose extraordinary dedication
to the pursuit of excellence, creativity, and endless love made this
project possible. She also edited the book and helped me find my
voice. “Young love lingers so . . . .”
