Publisher's Summary

This series represents an opportunity to participate in a one week retreat with Eckhart and so to go deeper into stillness - becoming one with who you are in the depth of your Being. A certain degree of spiritual maturity, however, is required of anyone wishing to participate fully in this retreat series.
What is spiritual maturity? You know the meaning of presence, not as a concept, but as a living reality. The retreat will help you to enter that dimension more deeply, to always know yourself as consciousness (rather than “this” or “that”), and to manifest this realization - your true purpose - in your daily life.

My Favorite Audio book ever

I would say that Tolle has changed my life, but he would object to that and say that presence has changed my life. Either way, My life is a better place now than before I started listening to Eckhart Tolle.

I thought that the Power of Now was my favorite book, and then I listened to the "Art of Presence" and I was hooked on listening to Eckhart conducting live retreats. He works without notes so it is different every time and it is simply amazing.

Now that I have listened to this retreat, "Freedom from the World" I name this as the best audio I have ever listened to. It is long and that is great! The longer the better.

It feels like I am in the retreat with him. I can hear the people laugh (Eckhart is quite funny) and he talks about small details like what the people are doing for an outing and when the members of the retreat will be practicing silence.

I cannot believe that I am saying this, but the retreats are even more helpful and more accessible than "The Power of Now" or "A New Earth."

I own a couple of hundred audio books and most of them are wonderful and extraordinary. But I find myself listening to Tolle every chance I get. As soon as I have finished listening to this retreat (I still have a couple of hours left) I will probably just begin listening to it all over again.

Thank you for making these Tolle retreats available. This is the power of audio. This is as good as it gets! Now I am going to get back to listening!

- David "True multitasking is "reading" a book while walking, running, kayaking, doing chores, gardening, driving or just drifting off to sleep."


Listening to this book while being present and mindful has been a tremendously peaceful experience for me. I have found myself to be more connected and thoughtful throughout the day. I would highly recommend this book to anyone looking to connect with the depth of the moment and to have a deeper connection to their higher self/universe/god (Or whatever else you call this feeling of oneness in your head). This book has been very beneficial in helping me to disconnect with the pain body and to then evaluate my reactions in the moment instead of diverting to the familiar egoic reaction.
