Publisher's Summary

Fulfillment and Joy Through the Realization of Our Essential Identity
When challenges arise in your life, what happens inside of you? For many of us, the larger the problem, the more we resist, contract, and react unconsciously. On the other hand, explains Eckhart Tolle, in any given moment we have the chance to remain open to life, align with what is, and experience the natural sense of peace and aliveness that he calls "the joy of being".
The Joy of Being is a four-session program that explores the process of awakening to our identity beyond the limits of thought and the impact this transformation can have in the world. Speaking after a three-year teaching hiatus, Eckhart discusses:


Working with whatever conditions arise as your guide for the continuing practice of presence
Using the inner body and sense perception as anchors to the now
Freedom from suffering - the spiritual seeker's best motive
The practice of "being the space" for the situations and circumstances you often find difficult

"The joy of being is derived not from something that happens or from some object but from the essence of who you are," teaches Eckhart. "To know yourself as that is joy." The Joy of Being points to a revolutionary phase in human development where thinking is no longer the dominant aspect of our lives, and unconditioned awareness expresses itself through and as each one of us.

More of the same

If your familiar with Eckhart he speaks from presence and any book you pick up of his takes you there. I was a little disappointed hoping to hear something new. I used to enjoy his sense of humor but not so much in this one. There were a couple of questions asked that pertained to my situation so that was helpful. I really love what Eckhart has brought to humanity but I will no longer keep buying anything new. I have most everything he has done and that is enough. I can listen to the power of now and a new earth and refresh all I need to remember.

A big fan, just not of this one.

I loved previous paper backs that I read and this was the 1st audio book from him that I listened to. I didn't realise that it wasn't an audiobook but more a recording of him speaking at a retreat.
Still good messages but terrible audio quality and feel a little short changed.

Wonderful, as always.

I own so many of Eckhart's audio recordings and I particularly enjoyed this one. Listening to his wise and calming words every morning on the way to work puts me in a perfect mood to face the rest of the day.

Not a great place to start

This a live recording of a retreat. It's worth getting if you've already read/heard the power of now, a new earth, and stillness speaks, but if not, those are better places to start.
For more frequent eggtart listeners, you'll probably enjoy this. It gives you a good sense of being there at the retreat and, as always he has some great insights to share (mixed in with ' new earth' levels of unfounded logical leaps). The good stuff is really good though :-)

WORST AUDIO!!!

Would you try another book written by Eckhart Tolle or narrated by Eckhart Tolle?

This was the first audio book of his I have purchased. No I would not try another book if it was done in Audio.

Has The Joy of Being put you off other books in this genre?

Only audio version

How could the performance have been better?

The audio could have been of higher quality.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Joy of Being?
