Overview

Perhaps you can recall a time when you felt immensely alive-when you had a sudden recognition of beauty, a feeling of deep contentment, and a sense of connection with life greater than you had ever thought possible. And then, this fl eeting moment was gone. What if you could recapture that remarkable opening, and make it a consistent way of living in the world? Throughout Europe and North America, a man named Eckhart Tolle has emerged as a teacher with the unique ability to draw us into the awakened state he calls "presence." With Realizing the Power of Now, you have an unparalleled opportunity to immerse yourself in the timeless dimension- "a place within us that always is and ever will be beyond the turmoil of life, a world of calm beyond words, of joy that has no opposite." Join Eckhart Tolle and discover the many simple ways to leave behind the chaos and suffering of the mind-made world and enter this state of serenity and grace. With Tolle's guidance, you will explore a space beyond the endless stream of thoughts . . . use sense perceptions and your "inner body" to fi nd a peace that exists independent of conditions . . . see past "the little me and my story" and fi nd your home in the "living Now." Recorded at a momentous four-day retreat led by Eckhart, here is a special invitation to transcend the fi nite world of fl uctuating thoughts, ambitions, and fears, and touch your true essence-that which has "no form, no time, and no name"-through Realizing the Power of Now.

Meet the Author

Spiritual author and teacher Eckhart Tolle was born in Germany on February 16, 1948. He lived in Spain and England before settling in Vancouver, Canada in 1995. He received his education at the Universities of London and Cambridge. Following several sustained periods of depression, at the age of 29 he experienced an enlightenment that dramatically changed the course of his life. His subsequent spiritual teachings have focused on awareness of the present moment, freedom from negativity, and the attainment of inner peace. He does not align himself with any specific religion or tradition. He has written numerous books including The Power of Now; A New Earth; Stillness Speaks; and Practicing the Power of Now. He is a public speaker who teaches and travels throughout the world. In January 2008, A New Earth was selected for Oprah Winfrey's book club.

Biography

Eckhart Tolle was born in Germany in 1948. He spent his teenage years living with his father in Spain, then moved in his early 20s to England where he attended the Universities of London and Cambridge. Following a period of intense personal crisis, he underwent a profound spiritual awakening at the age of 29. He embarked on a long, transformative inner journey that effectively dissolved his old identity and changed the course of his life. Today he is recognized as a great spiritual counselor and an author of inspirational self-help guides. He remains unaffiliated with any organized religion or specific philosophical tradition.

In his first book, The Power of Now (1999), Tolle stressed the importance of living, fully present, in the moment. His powerful message of active self-awareness resonated with millions of readers -- including kingmaker Oprah Winfrey -- and launched a range of related literature and teaching materials. In 2008, Winfrey selected another Tolle title, A New Earth, for her influential Book Club, joining the author for an online workshop. A sought-after public speaker, Tolle travels extensively, taking his teachings throughout the world.
