Publisher's Summary

What is the most essential trait for an effective healer or teacher? Intelligence, skill, and compassion are important, explains Eckhart Tolle, but without presence, our work in service of others falls short of its potential.
Practicing Presence is a retreat for health practitioners, educators, spiritual teachers—or anyone who shares wisdom—offering more than seven hours of Eckhart’s practical advice for those fostering transformation in others.
Covering a wide range of challenges and concerns specific to the helping professions, Eckhart discusses:

Rooting one’s work in stillness to become “a teacher of presence.”
Finding the balance between structure and formlessness in your teaching or healing modality.
The question of readiness for the would-be teacher or healer.
Financial considerations and the inherent egoic risks of charging money for services.

“To be there as nobody special—simply as a field of awareness—that’s the essence of being a successful healer or teacher,” explains Eckhart. For anyone working to support the well-being of others, Practicing Presence brings you an empowering series of pointers and guidelines for lasting transformation and healing.
Please note that due to the environment in which these talks were recorded, the listener may notice some extraneous noise or hiss. This should not significantly affect the overall delivery of Eckhart's teaching.

Poor sound quality!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would not recommend this audio book, because the sound quality is very poor. As usual, Eckhart Tolle does an exceptional job, but the sound level is way too low and not real clear.

Tolle at his best

This is a very helpful guide for people in the service business that have come to a level of awakening. How to bring this new awareness into your work and life. Tolle brings his presence into this workshop in a remarkable way and guides you into being more present yourself while listening to his teachings. The audio quality is absolutely acceptable and one can hear him clearly. If you are looking for a helping hand to infuse your work and life with a level of awareness of the highest standard, this is it!
