I found the books by this author to be helpful and powerful, and these recordings are also very helpful.
I think people may have quite different reactions to it depending on their experience and the way they see the world, but I'm sure for many it will be helpful. I did not find his accent difficult to understand, although it is unusual by North American standards. And I like his sense of humor!
If you have not read any of his books, this may not be the best introduction, as for much of the recording he is addressing audiences that are familiar with his material, and so takes some things for granted in his talk.
The first session in the recording is somewhat like a guided meditation, that continues for somewhere around 2 hours. Not exactly a meditation, because he is speaking the whole time, but constantly inviting the audience to connect with their immediate experience and "enter the now". Recorded at a retreat, it really led me into a nice learning experience. I've listened to it more than once, and you needn't necessarily listen to the whole thing, you can drop in and out of it as well.
Well worth listening to!
wonderful, useful, peaceful
Yes. This is an excellent representation of what Eckhart has to teach us. His teachings are meaningful, down-to-earth, sometimes humorous, always compassionate and applicable to every moment of the day.
What I love about Eckhart Tolle is his message is visceral.
I have listened to everything audible ever releases on Eckhart!
His message is so simple and yet it is so difficult to not go to the past or the future. By listening again and again the Now stays longer.
This guys has the most boring, dull voice, but this is unreal, if you need a good night's sleep.
I take my MP3 player to bed and this puts me to sleep within the 1st 3 minutes. I had to listen to this in the day, as I honestly could remember what it was about.
I have never been able to listen to it all, so it is my all time favourite to take to bed, I have played it maybe 20 times and get the best 7hrs 23 minutes sleep ever. A must buy for a good nights sleep; hence 3 stars rating.
"the Power of Now" didn't put me to sleep, I enjoyed the content, that is why I bought this.
Absolutely not, never ever
I couldn't get past first 5 minutes, so don't know the story.
The speakers delivery. He'd say 3-4 words then pauses 3-5 seconds. I was looking for more self help knowledge but became frustrated with all the pauses.
I would like my money back.
