Throughout the spiritual classic The Power of Now are specific practices and clear keys that show us how to discover for ourselves the 'grace, ease, and lightness' that comes when we simply quiet our thoughts and see the world before us in the present moment.
Practicing the Power of Now is a carefully arranged series of excerpts from the The Power of Now that directly gives us those exercises and keys. Return to those words, reflect on the words, reflect even on the space between the words and - maybe over time, maybe immediately - you'll discover something of life-changing significance.

Here and now
This is a great book to use as a refresher for the power of now or as a introduction. If this is your first Eckhart Tolle book then I think it is a great book to see if your ready for his teachings. You will either feel the desire to know more or you will not. If you want to jump in head first then read, the power of now first and use this as a refresher.
As any good book on self knowledge, this one has short passages of tremendous depth. Repetition is essential to capture these core concepts due to a important fact described by the book: rarely we can listen without any kind of internal noise or mental process. In my case I listen one chapter several times and always find "new" passages.
There are quite a few. One interest thing is to discover that you have not really listened to it and everytime you revisit a chapter there are parts that seem brand new.
It's about the media, the channel. Eckhart's voice and tone leads to a more concentrated listening. Some sentences are subtlely emphasized and the understanding varies with that.
We are always attracted to mental projections and live most of our time in toxic states. An educated mind opens way to the now.
I love learning thru books, about life, people and ways to be better. My best listen so far? The Power of Now, have a good listen!
I love Eckhart Tolle's books, but having read the Power of now and A New Earth I found some of this things wore pure repetition of earlier books, but still his words and the way he says them bring me a big sense of calmness and peace
Tolle's insights are crisply articulated in this book. It is full of valuable practices to suit many different situations, moods, etc.
Tolle is the clearest and most accessible person speaking about - and perhaps ever to speak about - the importance of presence, for individuals but also the world.
I wept a few times, as I was completely taken by the profundity of what he is sharing.
An awareness that a power greater than ourselves is bring up the sun in the morning and the moon at night. Showing this power who ever you believe in our daily lives. How to draw this power in our lives more often and live happier life.
This book is awesome, so very practical, and Eckhart Tolle has such a gentle touch of humor.he will help you to live now .
"This is the very important basics!"
I love to recommend this book to my friends, because he explains such important basics of life, how to be, so simply and easy to understand. I've known the principal and practicing the power of now for many years, but this book just put it so simply and easily and explains well.
This is a gift to yourself, to see and understand 'all that is'. It took effort at first to practice living in the now, but it is so inspirational and helps you to not give up. This book has helped me heal and to move in with my presence and present life.
"Great for falling asleep to"
A compilation of the great exercises from his other books, which unfortunately, I found too long winded to listen to.
"A valuable audio book."
Everything Ekhart Tolle speaks about makes so much sense. His messages will guide you to a peaceful and more harmonious way of life. It's great to have this resource to listen to wherever I am whenever I want.
"Deepening the understanding"
I have long returned to the original book, The Power of Now, as a reminder that there is only this moment, and that we need to be aware when our mind takes us off to the future or the past. The mind is a useful tool if we use it, rather than let it use us. In this book, Practising the Power of Now, Tolle explores and expands upon the themes from The Power of Now, and also A New Earth, which gives a greater depth of understanding to concepts like the pain body, the egoic mind and awareness. He also gives more practical examples of how his teachings apply in every day life,eg in relationships. His voice is soothing and hypnotic, and every word feels true and makes perfect sense. It is true what they say - when the student is ready, the teacher appears, and Tolle is a true teacher for our age.
"Easy, short and something for myself"
Great way to improve my inner life, finding time to meditate or practice ways of improving my self awareness is difficult. This audiobook is perfect to listen to while doing automatic actions (getting dress, undress, having a brew, also after my lunch, 5 min of quiete time is refreshing. The only unerving thing is the snorting, but if you listen to the author frequently, you get use and it becomes like rain outside. Very easy practical exercices!
omg! read it!! greatest book in the history of mankind. please read it a few time and your life will become infinite better
Very good I highly recommend this book without any reservations.
stunning, absolute delight, truly profound.
Brilliant book by a spiritual master. This book is a fantastic condensed milk based on the original power of now
