Eckhart Tolle tells us that every encounter we have with another human being offers the opportunity for profound connection and transformation. For those who’ve made it their life’s work to help others, this insight is especially powerful.
Today, many people in what Eckhart calls “the helping professions”—including therapists, counselors, and other caregivers—are eager to learn practical ways to incorporate his guidance into their work. Becoming a Teacher of Presence brings you an in-depth audio program on accessing the source of wisdom and healing beyond the thinking mind while in the service of others.
Being in the Company of Being
Who—or what—actually teaches? How do we know when we’re offering genuine guidance versus something based in ego? What practices can we use to stay rooted in Presence while listening to and speaking with clients? Join Eckhart Tolle for this four-session exploration of “being in the company of Being” as we work with others in a helping or healing capacity.
“It’s one thing to believe that every encounter with another human being is sacred, and another to know it directly while in relationship,” teaches Eckhart. “That is love; that is what transforms the world.” Becoming a Teacher of Presence invites you to realize this sacred connection in the work you do with others.

About the Author
Spiritual teacher and author Eckhart Tolle was born in Germany and educated at the Universities of London and Cambridge. At the age of twenty-nine, a profound inner transformation radically changed the course of his life. The next few years were devoted to understanding, integrating, and deepening that transformation, which marked the beginning of an intense inward journey. Later, he began to work in London with individuals and small groups as a counselor and spiritual teacher. Since 1995 he has lived in Vancouver, Canada.
Eckhart Tolle is the author of the #1 New York Times bestseller The Power of Now (translated into 33 languages) and the highly acclaimed follow-up A New Earth, which are widely regarded as two of the most influential spiritual books of our time.
Eckhart’s profound yet simple teachings have already helped countless people throughout the world find inner peace and greater fulfillment in their lives. At the core of the teachings lies the transformation of consciousness, a spiritual awakening that he sees as the next step in human evolution. An essential aspect of this awakening includes transcending our ego-based state of consciousness. This is a prerequisite not only for personal happiness but also for the ending of violent conflict endemic on our planet.
Eckhart is a sought-after public speaker and teaches and travels extensively throughout the world. Many of his talks, intensives, and retreats are published on CD and DVD. Most of the teachings are given in English, but occasionally Eckhart also gives talks in German and Spanish. In addition to The Power of Now and A New Earth, Eckhart has written a book designed for meditative reading entitled Stillness Speaks. A book consisting of selections from The Power of Now entitled Practicing the Power of Now is also available. For more information on Eckhart Tolle, please visit eckharttolle.com.
