Publisher's Summary

Once there was a student who asked the master, "How can I become free of the world?" The reply: "Love the world and everything in it."
How do we handle this paradox? By allowing and accepting what is. This is the simple yet life-changing teaching Eckhart Tolle shares in Freedom from the World, a retreat with the best-selling author of The Power of Now.
Many people who have made it in the eyes of the world will be the first to tell you they're actually miserable, begins Eckhart. This is because our worldly possessions and accomplishments will bring only short-term fulfillment if our lives are not rooted in the unified, unmanifested source of life itself, or what Eckhart often calls "the formless dimension".
Join Eckhart for a nine-session exploration of how we each can become "a master of life" and an agent of transformation as we learn to be and act simultaneously in the material realm and the formless dimension. Topics include:

Breaking the cycle of reincarnating thoughts
Sense perceptions, the inner body, and on-the-spot inquiries that serve as "portals to presence"
Simple practices to deepen your daily interactions with others

"You are a blessing on the planet when you are in touch with the spacious, formless dimension within yourself," explains Eckhart. Freedom from the World brings you his empowering teachings for bridging the dimensions of form and formlessness and living with renewed joy and peace and a sense of a meaningful purpose.
Please note: 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.

A profound journey - true to the title!

I loved this book and could not wait for my morning journey to work (an hour at least) to listen and contemplate Eckhart Tolle's simple wisdom on how to free ourselves from all we create both seen and unseen, and surrender to the present moment.
This book is for the true spiritual seeker, and vital for the busy western mind who needs to operate in this world, but also wants to know how to surrender into the silence within - to refresh ourselves at a deep and subtle level - to experience deep peace.
Eckardt Tolle finds many insightful ways to explain this concept of freedom from the world, as the western mind has been conditioned for busy-ness, anxiety, fear and therefore needs to be reminded of the same simple truth in many different ways.
This has been a profound spiritual journey with Eckardt Tolle. So grateful I chose it!
