Recorded amid the natural beauty of an Australian rainforest, Eckhart discusses a range of topics including:
How our obstacles can become an opening for spiritual growth
Attending to the all-pervasive aliveness that surrounds us
The realization of our "formless" identity
The only question that matters: Am I present at this moment?
The meaning of "saying yes to what is" - and the art of stating a "high-quality no"
Being the space in which things happen
That which cannot be threatened
Stillness and true relationship
Meeting situations with intense consciousness instead of reactivity
Eckhart's personal "self-destruction" story
How presence transforms our experience of uncertainty
Eroding old habits through the practice of detachment
Pre-egoic thinking and the archetype of the fool
"The only true cause of upset is losing yourself in the world or in your mind," teaches Eckhart. "Mastery arrives when there is total attention to being without a secondary motive." At the Source of Being is rich with insights and inspiration for integrating your "presence practice" into every aspect of daily life. Includes a helpful question-and-answer session with retreat participants.

What disappointed you about At the Source of Being?
What Tolle has to say might be very worthwhile (it probably is), but the recording is so bad one can't tell. I really expect Audible to do a better job moderating their content.

Another wonderful recording
As always Eckharts use of language is eloquent and guides you to a deeper understanding each time he offers us a new recording.
Please do not listen to the reviews about poor sound quality. The sounds are more often than not the beautiful sounds of a rain storm.
If you listen to your mind/ego then this will only rob you of this wonderful message. For those bad reviews may I suggest if you cannot go to the silence underneath the sound then try excepting the sound and the isness of what is. Choose again who guides you.

Unfortunately VERY bad recording
I’m really enjoying audio books, as I walk a lot.
This one however has a really bad recording. Tolle you can hear from a distance, the audience laughing is very loud, so turning it up doesn’t help.
I cars pass me by for instance I can not hear anything!
Would it be possible to receive another and better version? Have been forcing myself to listen, but today I decided that this is not working for me to enjoy this book.
