Publisher's Summary

The theme of this four-day retreat: "It's Always Now" The Now is inseparable from who you are at the deepest level. It is the prerequisite of Being. As you listen to the words on this tape, you participate in the retreat. To "retreat" means to step back - not only from the outer world, but also from the world in your head, the thinking mind. Allow the sound of the words to take you beyond words and beyond sound to the stillness within. Allow the Now to be as it is and so realize the formless essence of the Now as consciousness itself.Suggested practice: use the lesson throughout the day.
Lesson 1: What is your relationship with the present moment?

Lesson 2: Get into your body! Practices for inner body awareness.

Lesson 3: Using sound as a portal into stillness.

Lesson 4: A day spent in silence.

Lesson 5: Questions & answers. Being present, amidst the world.

Lesson 6: Questions & answers. The power of detachment and surrender.Blessings on your Journey into your Self.

The best Audible credit I've spent yet

There truly are no words to describe the beauty of what can be found in this audio book if you are able to really "hear" its message. If I could give it 100 stars, I would. I agree with previous reviewers also on Eckhart's subtle and wonderful sense of humor. I laughed so many times in the course of listening to this. And I cried. I've listened to about four of his other works, including The Power Of Now. And while I enjoyed them immensely (they had the soothing effect of slipping into a warm bath), my understanding of the concepts in them was largely limited to the cognitive realm. This is the book that had me listening from a whole other place, that brought me to a whole new level of "understanding". One for which there truly are no words.

Wonderful teaching

This is a really wonderful audiobook. If you have a few other of his lectures you will likely find parts of it are family since Eckhart does say similar and familiar things. An interesting element of this recording is that there is one person who laughs throughout the lecture at the most random things. It grated on my nerves at first until I realized that this was an opportunity to accept what is rather than let the ego keep grabbing hold of it and being annoyed or wondering if this person was on drugs, which I did for the first few hours. Eventually, this person's laughter was just a sound I chose to not let distract me from being present while listening to Eckhart. Amusingly enough, there are moments when Eckhart begins laughing at things he's saying which I suspect was triggered by the seemingly randomness of this audience member's laughter. All in all, the lecture in itself is good, while that one person's laughter perhaps made it more than a lecture and into a putting the teachings into practice type of experience. As I continued listening I found I could gauge my presence by whether the laughter triggered judgment and/or annoyance or not.
