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.

Even the Sun Will Die: An Interview with Eckhart Tolleby Eckhart Tolle
When Eckhart Tolle agreed to be interviewed on September 11, 2001, he could not foresee the historic nature of this date or the suffering that would follow. As the day's events unfolded, in real time, he responded with a calm and clear voice, helping to make sense out of the fear and chaos that will forever define this date.Even the Sun Will Die documents this historic meeting with Eckhart Tolle and the comforting wisdom he revealed that day. We live in a time, he says, when we define ourselves through our enemies; and science and technology are in the service of human madness. Yet even in the face of disaster, a miracle happens when we say "yes" to living in this moment and no other. This "great opening," he teaches, can serve as nothing less than the beginning of a revolution in human consciousness with the potential to transform our world and everyone in it. Also for the first time on audio, Eckhart Tolle comments on his own awakening, and what he sees as the next step in human evolution. From insights into the way out of suffering, to evidence that a new consciousness is already rising, Even the Sun Will Die confirms Eckhart Tolle's place among the most important and accessible spiritual teachers of our time. About the Author Eckhart Tolle graduated from the University of London and was a research scholar and supervisor at Cambridge University. At age 29, a spiritual transformation changed the course of his life. For the past 10 years, he has been a counselor and spiritual teacher working with individuals and groups in Europe and North America. His first book, The Power of Now, has been translated into 17 languages, and is now in its sixth printing, with over 100,000 copies in print.

This CD set of 2 contains all that is necessary for success for our planet, any person, any business. Its focus is on overcoming the ancient root of human self-destruction, simply seen as the illusory stress of over-thinking which posesses and enslaves our over-active brain, could be the insight of our age. Here is how to reset within seconds to clear perception of the wonders of living and feeling in the now. In just a few years this little CD may turn out to have been prophetic. Where else can you slip a piece of plastic into your car CD player and get a method of instant relief from the tyranny of thoughts which could even effect your driving safety? Here's a simple description from an enlightened writer of how we can individually live our moment of peace AT ANY MOMENT. Then, joined up with millions, this tends towards the creation of a life-caring society to save the planet. SO-O-O recommended. Try it and repeat 3 times or until you really 'get' the evolutionary step that clever people will miss or be 'too busy' to appreciate. I have searched and read for decades to find a source of wisdom as useful to my life and health as this one.
I've listened to these CD's over 20 times since receiving them a month ago. So much wonderful information! Each time I listen, new things come to my attention. If you love Eckhart's book, "The Power of Now", this is a GREAT addition!
Tolle's interview gives a pretty amazing real-time account of the terror attach on 9/11 (on the day it actually happend) and how it will affect our lives.
