Publisher's Summary

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. Allow the Now to be as it is and so realize the formless essence of the Now as consciousness itself.

Suggested practice: use the lesson throughout the day.

  • Lesson 1: What is your relationship with the present moment?
  • Lesson 2: Get into your body! Practices for inner body awareness.
  • Lesson 3: Using sound as a portal into stillness.
  • Lesson 4: A day spent in silence.
  • Lesson 5: Questions & answers. Being present, amidst the world.
  • Lesson 6: Questions & answers. The power of detachment and surrender.

    Blessings on your Journey into your Self.

      "The best Audible credit I've spent yet"

      There truly are no words to describe the beauty of what can be found in this audio book if you are able to really "hear" its message. If I could give it 100 stars, I would. I agree with previous reviewers also on Eckhart's subtle and wonderful sense of humor. I laughed so many times in the course of listening to this. And I cried. I've listened to about four of his other works, including The Power Of Now. And while I enjoyed them immensely (they had the soothing effect of slipping into a warm bath), my understanding of the concepts in them was largely limited to the cognitive realm. This is the book that had me listening from a whole other place, that brought me to a whole new level of "understanding". One for which there truly are no words.

      "Enjoyed the lecture format"

      I have enjoyed all of Tolle's books. This is a good summary in a lecture format. I would recommend listening to his other books first, i.e. The New Earth.

      "Learned a lot!"

      Eckhart Tolle is always great to listen too, every time I listen to it I learn something new. The whole talk is over 10 hours so you always miss something and pick up something new. There is some very annoying guy laughing in the background throughout the talk with it unfortunate. Still Eckhart is a great spiritual speaker.

      "Wonderful teaching"

      This is a really wonderful audiobook. If you have a few other of his lectures you will likely find parts of it are family since Eckhart does say similar and familiar things. An interesting element of this recording is that there is one person who laughs throughout the lecture at the most random things. It grated on my nerves at first until I realized that this was an opportunity to accept what is rather than let the ego keep grabbing hold of it and being annoyed or wondering if this person was on drugs, which I did for the first few hours. Eventually, this person's laughter was just a sound I chose to not let distract me from being present while listening to Eckhart. Amusingly enough, there are moments when Eckhart begins laughing at things he's saying which I suspect was triggered by the seemingly randomness of this audience member's laughter. All in all, the lecture in itself is good, while that one person's laughter perhaps made it more than a lecture and into a putting the teachings into practice type of experience. As I continued listening I found I could gauge my presence by whether the laughter triggered judgment and/or annoyance or not.

      "A very calming, centering, enlightening experience"

      This is a recording of a Eckhart Tolle retreat. It amazes me how Eckhart Tolle is at his best at any given moment. Even though it's a retreat, the words spoken are clear, precise and contain the full essence of his teachings as if they are weighed in gold. There is plenty of wisdom, practical advice, new perspectives as well as the hilarious Eckhart Tolle brand humor. There several adjectives I can use. Most of all, though, it has been a very centering, calming, humorous and very enlightening experience.

      So, yeah, you should get it :-)

      "Eckhart is a true master"

      I never heard of Eckhart Tolle until about five months ago when I was drawn to The Power Of Now on cd at a library. I picked it up and immediately knew I would find what I was looking for in it. Since then, I bought several of his audiobooks. This one is definitely one of my favorites! He is very funny! I laughed out loud a few times and had to even hold back my laughter while listening during quiet time (sleep, library, etc). He is a true master of our time. I have most of his teachings in my ipod and listen to them all the time. His relaxing voice is also great to listen to while going to sleep. I would definitely recommend this book to everyone who is looking to grow spiritually!

      "A terrific seminar tainted by a "clown""

      Great talk, except for one incredibly obnoxious audience member, that made for an uncomfortable listening experience.

      "Recommended"

      I found this to be engaging, challenging and comforting. I find myself compelled to indicate that as the sessions progressed, I found myself anticipating and dreading the sole yacking, laughing attendee whose threshold for sharing his joy seemed quite a bit lower than everyone else in the room. In spite of my desire to "be in the now" - which I should have been , in response to this individual, I found it distracting and detracted from my ability to listen to it again

      "100% loved it with exception to the laughing monk"

      first off i love eckhart tolle and enjoyed this entire audiobook... but did anyone else hear the annoying guy in the background at the retreat laughing louder than an ass after everything tolle says? the first 4 hours i was like totally accepting the "isness" of the idiot but i really think, after 10 hours of hearing his dramatic reply to every single thing tolle says, i actually felt his incessant laughter was to ridicule and dismiss anything being talked about... who knows. who cares.

      there are many moments where tolle makes hilarious jokes and you hear the entire retreat audience laughing and i laugh as well but this guy is seriously stoned or something. i think tolle may have addressed it by pointing out how some zenned out monks laugh at most things they hear, which i guess is his acceptance and alertness to his surroundings (lots of "students" and one noisy monkey).

      i still loved "the journey into yourself" and was eventually able to pay no mind to the audible annoyances in listening to an audiobook to learn to pay no mind to such things... but it's actually totally annoying to listen to a 10 hour unabridged audiobook by a genius and hear some drunk heckler buzzing in every 20 seconds, my thanks to the peanut gallery!

      "Take a retreat with Tolle!"

      Eckharts clear mind and calm demeanor, are both wise and insightful. Listening to this recording from one of his retreats--made me feel as if I was there. It was very healing and brought a lot of wisdom and compassion to my own practice of being (present).

      "The Journey into Yourself"

      If you've listened to or read "The Power of Now" or any of Ekhart's other works and enjoyed these, I don't think it's possible that you could listen to this and not find it an awesome recording. The Journey into Yourself was recorded at one of Ekhart's three day retreats. Delivering a magical mix of insight, humour and serenity there is no doubt that this man has awakened an energy in himself that we all unconsciously or even consciously seek to reunite with. Ekhart, in the most gentle of ways, is on a mission to facilitate this process for any human being who is open and ready.

      "Reaches the parts other teachings can't....."

      I bought this audiobook after reading The Power of Now and A New Earth. This recording works very well as it has a relaxed, conversational quality to it.

      There is something about Eckhart Tolle's teachings that reaches into a person and awakens a realisation of something that had been forgotten.

      I found the audiobook entertaining, funny, heart-warming and full of insight, and promptly started listening to it all over again once I reached the end of it, such was my reluctance to end the connection. It felt like coming home.

      "A wonderful journey of self discovery"

      I was expecting this audiobook to be similar to Tolle's previous work The Power of Now - and in many ways it was. However, it is far more powerful, emotional and interesting. I wonder if this is in part because the recording was made at a live seminar, and you can here the audience participation as well as Tolle's laughter and can sense the atmosphere. I am finding great joy in being in the current moment, rather than either thinking endlessly of past moments or living for future ones.
      Everyone should listen to this groundbreaking recording.

      "Repeat content ofThe Power of Now and A New Earth."
      If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

      Someone who is new to Eckhart Tolle


      What didn’t you like about Eckhart Tolle’s performance?

      A lot of the content is a repeat of The Power of Now and A New Earth.


      Any additional comments?

      Uncontrollable, out of context laughing by one person in audience repetitively for 5 hours becomes a challenge.

      "Such a shame"

      I am somewhat of an eckhart fan, for many years I have listened to his words. This is a VERY good structured listen BUT..... Certain members of the audience are incredibly annoying, to the point that I am unable to listen to the second half. It was giving me a good lesson in accepting sounds as they are. But this was too much!

      "Classic Eckheart"

      Having been a fan for some time now I feel slightly biased in this review, however, this live recording is both a great introduction and addition to the work of Eckheart.
      the audience is clearly audible in the background, I feel this add's to the overall quality and listening experience.
      Highly recommended.

      "Waste of time and money..."

      This is my first review ever, because normally I'm very patient and understanding. But this...
      I admit, now and then you may hear some good ideas (which however you will forget immediately). But with all due respect how horrendously annoying this audio book was!!! Long pauses, his flat jokes and his constant giggling at them, his loud breathing, and people from the audience laughing when actually nothing funny was even told! So just do yourself a favour - don't buy this book, save your time and money!

      "Hmm, Not at all sure about this!"

      Having read the reviews I decided to purchase this title. My initial response was slight annoyance at his airy-fairy, insubstantial and somewhat meandering ideas. While there are some very valid and helpful ideas and a great sense of relaxed peace and quietude, this is sadly disturbed by his audience guffaws and cackles but worse (as another reviewer said) is his 'sniggering' and the 'heavy breathing' obviously caused by the microphone being too close to his mouth. Creepy! I have decided after several 'tries' that I cannot listen to him and sadly will not be able to take advantage of any of his teachings.

      "Annoying"

      I'm afraid that although Tolle has some interesting things to say, the way he delivers is annoying. He speaks too close to the microphone, one can hear him breathe which becomes claustrophobic, and he sniggers at his own jokes incessantly (accompanied by a member of the audience who whinnies in the background all the time), which really takes one's mind away from the seriousness of the subject he is treating. A disappointment.
