Summary

This series represents an opportunity to participate in a one week retreat with Eckhart and so to go deeper into stillness - becoming one with who you are in the depth of your Being. A certain degree of spiritual maturity, however, is required of anyone wishing to participate fully in this retreat series.

What is spiritual maturity? You know the meaning of presence, not as a concept, but as a living reality. The retreat will help you to enter that dimension more deeply, to always know yourself as consciousness (rather than “this” or “that”), and to manifest this realization - your true purpose - in your daily life.

  • Lesson 2: Conscious Living (1hr. 27 min.)
  • Lesson 3: Do you know Who You Are? (1hr. 32 min.)
  • Lesson 4: The Power of Life (1hr. 36 min.)

Best practical talk from Tolle I’ve heard yet

Many practical tips to help understanding and to realise what it’s like to be present.

Insightfull and amusing.

I think a reason for Eckarts success aside from his great books is his humour. This talk is sprinkled with it throughout, he's quite a comedian but then theres nothing funnier than the truth. One of the better talks of his I've heard, the audience are not irritating as on some.

Questions Answered

Lots of extra material for fans of "Power of Now" and "A New Earth". It contains the usual message of present moment awareness, but some of the Q and A moments are very helpful.

Refreshing Humorous Treat

Playful, nourishing, amusing ...thoroughly satisfying. Great to listen to anytime - day, evening, bedtime, in night...Eckhart is my favourite spiritually enlightened comedian. I instantly smile when I hear him chuckling away.

Feeling like participating in a retreat.

The most memorable moment in this audio was NOW. And it is still... Here and now.

Thank you Eckhart

His voice is such an effective signpost for me to enter the now. I listen as I walk the dog and we’re both calmer for it. Unlike other listeners I don’t enjoy the Q&A very much as each question is often ‘other peoples mind stuff’, but I realize the value for many and that section doesn’t detract from the overall value of this book as a light to us all.

Life-changing!

I've listened to several Eckhart audiobooks now and absolutely love them all but this for me took my understanding of his teachings to a deeper level. This contains more practical guidance on how to actually apply Eckhart's teachings in everyday life. I will return to this repeatedly and recommend regularly. Enjoy.
