Publisher's Summary

Perhaps you can recall a time when you felt more alive than at any other moment — when you had a sudden recognition of beauty, a feeling of deep contentment, and a sense of connection with life greater than you had ever thought possible. And then, this fleeting moment was gone. What if you could recapture that remarkable opening, and make it a consistent way of living in the world? Throughout Europe and North America, a man named Eckhart Tolle has emerged as a teacher with the unique ability to draw us into the awakened state he calls "presence." With Realizing the Power of Now: An In-Depth Retreat with Eckhart Tolle, you have an unparalleled opportunity to immerse yourself in the timeless dimension — a place within us that always is and ever will be beyond the turmoil of life, a world of calm beyond words, of joy that has no opposite.
A walk in nature. A personal crisis. A moment of laughter. These can all serve as portals that take us to the depth and wonder of the Now. But how do we access these portals so that we dwell in presence more and more often? With Tolle's guidance, you will discover many simple ways to leave behind the chaos and suffering of the mind-made world, and enter this state of serenity and grace. Tolle will show you how to go beyond the endless stream of thoughts, and simply allow whatever is happening to occur...use sense perceptions and your "inner body" to find a peace that exists independent of conditions...see past "the little me and my story" and find your home in the "living Now."

Excellent Tolle

OK, this was my first exposure to Tolle's voice...and it does take a bit of adjustment...his affect is a bit strange and his pacing is very measured (read slow)...but I hung in there and wow! was it worth it. Simple words that can change your life...if you like. This is not a book but 7 hrs+ of Tolle at Hollyhock retreat center...for the price it's the best thing I've purchased thus far on Audible!

A must for Tolle readers...

Ahhhh to be a fly on the wall during an Eckhart lecture. This seven hour presentation takes highlights from a week long retreat. Unlike an audiobook, this unscripted slice of life and lessons to learn captures Tolle at his best -- unrehersed and in front of a live audience. His subtle humor is not lost among the participants and we can picture the serene smile on his face as he takes us deeper into the present moment. Enjoy.

If you are interested in learning about mindfulness then this is a wonderful audiobook.

I like all of Eckhart Tolle's books, but I particularly like this retreat, when you can hear the audience laughing in recognition at the absurdity of the things we worry about and Eckhart's frequent, gentle, chuckle. When I am stressed or worried, I find this very calming. Yes, it is slow, but that's the point. Slow down and be present in the moment.

Having listened to it several times, I also find it perfect for helping me to switch off and go to sleep if I am getting into repetitive worry and thoughts that are keeping me awake.

Maybe the other reviewer is right and you will either love it or hate it. I love it.
