As much as I respect Eckhart Tolle it was very difficult to listen to him speak because he speaks very slowly and makes many bodily noises during pauses. I believe he has a speech impediment so I am not poking fun I just found it extremely distracting. I was so excited to get this book thinking this was my perfect opportunity to quiet my very loud psyche and find some peace, but I guess you had to be there at the retreat to get the real impact because this book put me to sleep. I listen to my books during my 40 minute work drive and while listening to this book I almost veered off the road because it was so monotone and slow.
Yes, only because he is so in the moment, and calm that he lacks enthusiasm and the ability to animate the book/retreat enough for the reader to feel a part of.
Yes, it has a great message... and was an excellent bedtime story, I fell asleep in less than ten minutes every time I tried to listen to it.
Unfortunatelly the voice of the author makes the listener tired in the first minute. The author speaks too slowly, as if he was in a lecture. I don't recommend this audio book,
I'd rather read the book.
The story is good, but his voice makes the listener tired. There is too many breaks during the explanation.
I could not listen until the end.
I would recommend, that not the author, but someone who has a strong voice would present this audio book.
an amazing spiritual being able to communicate in a way that you will feel very deeply
didn't expect to laugh as much; but I'm glad I did, I find myself controlling/preventing my anger outbursts now; I stop think things thru and realize anger is not the solution but problem solving is. I no longer think I am inferior nor superior to anyone else. I feel a stronger more important sense of self. Feeling alive without thinking is the key!
Excellent. I almost did not chose this one because of negative review about laughing person. Glad I did. Use I phone and buds to listen. I did not think it was (laughing) an issue at all. Great retreat audio. So many to choose from, this one was enjoyable and helpful to me.
I absolutely get a lot out of Eckhardt, for me I was ready for all of this. Including letting go of judgement on the spot for about 4/5 of the entire book! A very "laughy" fellow from the audience was very hard to ignore. I found myself trying to figure out, how what was being said was so hilarious; under what circumstance would this be outroarously funny? Hmm, maybe if I needed attention? Maybe if I was high? Maybe if I had a personal grievance with Mr. Tolle? I couldn't find that person's delirium, in relationship to the material. So for me, I have no closure. AHHAHHAHAHAAAAAAAA! HAHA! HAAA. I still had great, new understandings. Letting go of past, shutting done, pro-actively, the head chatter from it; being responsible to the things I ALLOW in my head and becoming dedicated to actualizing my own value!
