Very poor sound quality

This a 7 hour recording of one of Eckarts recent retreats. As a devoded Eckhart listener I have heard many facets of this recording in other tape before but still think it is worthwhile hearing it again in a different setting. Unfortunately the sound quality of this recording is the worst I have experienced so far in retreat recordings.

This is a good lecture to listen to after reading "The Power of Now." I've looked through Tolle's other books and most seem to be a rehashing of "The Power of Now," a sort of commercialized industry. A few are good though. The "Art of Presence" is one such good audio to listen to on my Ipod when walking or doing other things.

The unique thing about the lecture is that Tolle can direct you to pause in order to reflect or delve into a subject at the appropriate moment. This is further enhanced by the question and answer period, where I can pause after each exchange or let each question and answer section flow into the other.

I've read in other reviews that some people are turned off by his strange laugh, which it is. But if you are turned off by his laugh, then you have missed his message because you are tuned into your ego. His laugh is in fact the aspect one could focus on because it relates to a variety of concepts he explicates--or doesn't explicate if you understand his way of informing. I don't think he even knows how his laugh is a key to his work.

I think an important point to keep in mind is that one shouldn't give up on the message simply because one doesn't like the messenger. I would also not recommend that one become a Tolle-freak disciple. Listen, learn, and adapt your take on his concepts.
