Powerful - Necessary - Simplistic
Mr. Tolle does an amazing job of ignoring a man in the back laughing like a laugh track - it is an awesome way for me to practice presence.
I can listen to this over and over as I am driving.
The teachings and lessons are always a joy to hear, again and again. However, it is recorded live and there is an audience member who has a hideous laugh that can be very annoying (especially through your headphones).
The audience laughing at random times, even during the serious times of his deep teachings was a TURN OFF.
All of his teaching are awesome
Remove the annoying audience member with the hideous laugh
I enjoyed Eckhart's compelling format in discovering who we really are and, very simply, how we can discover greater joy and fulfillment in this moment.
It isn't a story, it is a retreat.
The subject material is too rich for one sitting. However, it is best digested one chapter at a time.
Super listening and a great experience. Nothing short of awesome.
Patient, Funny, Provocative. I have been following Eckhart since "The Power of Now" which I read at least a dozen times. Since then he has become very good at what he does, Encouraging.
Hi! I'm a Math Teacher who has always loved Books with a mysterious, scientific, or other-worldly flare! Time travelers are also fun!
Yes. It's spiritually centering
Already knew Eckharts teachings
Ssssslllllooooowwwwwwww in development
The most difficult thing about listening to the book is that it was a taping of a live seminar. The people at the seminar got to see expressions and activities that Eckhart must've done during lllooonnnggg pauses in the instruction. After a while, you learn to use and reflect during the pauses. At first...it was just awkward. Keep listening to get Eckharts message. But if you want spiritual guidance....seek a different Eckhart experience. A New Earth is really good. No new messages at the seminar taped for thus book.
I'm huge fan of Eckhart Tolle. I've read a bunch of his books. I think the title pretty much explains it's content,with that I feel this lecture was not created for beginners. If you have never experience Eckhart or have understanding of Eastern Religion. You might find this lecture very confusing. For those who have, it just shows you how deep the rabbit hole goes. I left with listening this lecture empowered and wanting to know about quieting the ego.
The journey is a daily dose of reality served up by Master E. His wry sense of humor is tangible.
There is a genuine sense of intimacy in the setting. You are given a wonderful opportunity to attend this momentary event.
I particularly enjoyed the narration from this extraordinary individual.
More of a daily read to touch home in this moment.
A.udible is a great & inexpensive way to stay in touch with books
I am really enjoying the way he is delving into the structure of his ideas. I find listening to him live is so refreshing. He laughs a lot and I can't help but smile and giggle when he does. It is so wonderful and refreshing.
I am still listening to this but felt a need to express the joy I am getting from listening to this lecture. I am really understanding his teachings better and find him to be very approachable. Really, the thing I like best is his laughing and jokes. He has a great sense of ease while discussing some rather hard to explain spiritual concepts.

I love every single part of this journey. Specially the silence between words (you will appreciate them too after you listen to this audio). Lots of laughs and many things (or one thing actually) you learn about yourself like drama, body pain, living in the vertical dimension.If you are looking and discovering enlightenment or i think it is important if you are deeply into this and you like to understand the core concepts beyond techniques, this will be something that you will enjoy.The questions add lots of value and to listen to this couple times and try to be listen to it in the "Now", you will be amazed how each time you will get fulfillment from it.
Although, you might think that when he talks very slow and low steady tone, that this will be really boring! However, you will find him really funny and his way of narrating this is very useful and it is aligned with the topic. Because Echart talks about silence and stillness, he resembles all aspects of stillness.
Be still and know I am God.
If you're a fan of Mr Tolle's books you will love this. Even in silence Eckhart teaches you peace. One of the most charming things about this book is Eckhart's humor. He makes you laugh and he makes you STOP thinking.;)
