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!

I love the book narrations for "The Power of Now" and "A New Earth", but I think I like this open format that Eckhart takes in this audio even more. He is such a genuine speaker and his words move me to consciousness every time I listen. Great audio, very insightful.

What made the experience of listening to Freedom from the World the most enjoyable?
Eckhart Tolle feels like a personal friend of mine. I have followed him for many years and work with his teachings on a daily basis in my work as a counsellor and coach. Listening to him on the Audible App is awesome. His teachings are not only incredible and profound but he is able to bring humour into the equation too, in his own unique humble way. <br/><br/><br/>STEVE HAINES COUNSELLOR MINDFULNESS COACH AND EFT PRACTITIONER
What did you like best about this story?
The story of PRESENCE is THE most important story of ALL.CWhat could be more important?
Which scene did you most enjoy?
I love his wisdom and his humour which shows frequently throughout the whole audio.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
I couldn't listen to the whole audio in one.It needs to be mindfully internalised to be fully understood.
Any additional comments?
Awesome! Highly recommended! Buy it! <br/><br/><br/>STEVE HAINES COUNSELLOR MINDFULNESS COACH AND EFT PRACTITIONER

Great audiobook from the guru. The recording is hopeless though - kept on stopping and had to keep restarting.
Maybe Mr Eckhardt was trying to make me reflect lol.

This is the same as "Freedom from the World: Bridging the Dimensions of Form and Formlessness". Not sure why Audible lists the same with two titles.
