The Power of Now
A contemporary spiritual master shows how living in the present leads to a happier, healthier, more fulfilling life.
Much more than simple principles and platitudes, The Power of Now takes readers on an inspiring spiritual journey to find their true and deepest self and reach the ultimate in personal growth and spirituality: the discovery of truth and light.
In the first chapter, Tolle introduces readers to enlightenment and its natural enemy, the mind. He awakens readers to their role as a creator of pain and shows them how to have a pain-free identity by living fully in the present.
The journey is thrilling, and along the way, the author shows how to connect to the indestructible essence of our Being, the eternal, ever-present One Life beyond the myriad forms of life that are subject to birth and death.
Only after regaining awareness of Being, liberated from Mind and intensely in the Now, is there Enlightenment...
Eckhart Tolle is widely recognized as one of the most inspiring and visionary spiritual teachers in the world today.
World-renowned spiritual teacher Eckhart Tolle conveys simple wisdom that transcends any particular religion, doctrine, or guru.
A native of Germany, Eckhart Tolle attended the University of London, and upon graduation went onto become a research scholar and supervisor at Cambridge University.
At 29, a profound spiritual awakening virtually dissolved his personal identity and sparked a radical change in the course of his life. It marked the beginning of an intense inward journey and he devoted the next decade to understanding, deepening, and integrating that transformation.
He now acts as a counselor and spiritual guide, facilitating sold-out groups in Europe and North America. He lives in Vancouver, British Columbia.
With his international bestsellers, The Power of Now and A New Earth — translated into 52 languages — he has introduced millions to the joy and freedom of living life in the present moment.
His teachings focus on the significance and power of Presence, the awakened state of consciousness, which transcends ego and discursive thinking. Eckhart sees this awakening as the essential next step in human evolution.
Eckhart Tolle is “the most popular spiritual author in the United States”, and in 2011, Watkins Review named him “the most spiritually influential person in the world”.
