    The theme of this four-day retreat: "It's Always Now" The Now is inseparable from who you are at the deepest level. It is the prerequisite of Being. As you listen to the words on this tape, you participate in the retreat. To "retreat" means to step back - not only from the outer world, but also from the world in your head, the thinking mind. Allow the sound of the words to take you beyond words and beyond sound to the stillness within.

    "Powerful Stuff"
    Overall

    After only a few minutes listening to Eckhart explain statements like "You are not your mind", it was clear to me that he is onto something powerful. I found his approach easy to understand and apply. As others have noted he has a unique voice which I found captivating and soothing. After completing "The Journey Into Yourself" I added three more Tolle titles to my Audible wish list.

    Nearly six hundred years ago, a short, genial, cannily alert man in his late 30s took a very old manuscript off a library shelf, saw with excitement what he had discovered, and ordered that it be copied. That book was the last surviving manuscript of an ancient Roman philosophical epic by Lucretius—a beautiful poem containing the most dangerous ideas: that the universe functioned without the aid of gods, that religious fear was damaging to human life, and that matter was made up of very small particles.

    Where does The Swerve rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    One ot the most engaging non fiction audio books I have listened to. I listened to it twice this past weekend and will listen to it again.


    Have you listened to any of Edoardo Ballerini’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No but Edoardo Ballerini"s natation here is perfect. I will be on the lookout for other audio books narrated by him.


    Any additional comments?

    It is amazing that it took 2,000 years for the west to get back to the level of intelectual and observational intelegence that the Greeks and Romans had attained. It is also amazing that Stephan Greenblatt can tell this story so engagingly.
