Publisher's Summary

All you really need to do is accept the moment fully. You are then at ease in the here and now and at ease with yourself.

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.

    Story
    "One book to read in different times of life"
    What made the experience of listening to Practicing the Power of Now the most enjoyable?

    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.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Practicing the Power of Now?

    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.


    What does Eckhart Tolle bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    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.


    What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

    We are always attracted to mental projections and live most of our time in toxic states. An educated mind opens way to the now.

    "good but a bit of a repetition"

    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

    "Cogent book goes right to the essence of our task"
    What made the experience of listening to Practicing the Power of Now the most enjoyable?

    Tolle's insights are crisply articulated in this book. It is full of valuable practices to suit many different situations, moods, etc.


    What did you like best about this story?

    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.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I wept a few times, as I was completely taken by the profundity of what he is sharing.

    Redundant. Better to read the Power of Now and skip this one

    "......why???"

    I liked very much the Power of Now. This one is really a needless repetition. Eckhart, why would you want to double charge us? My advice: Skip this one, stick with the original.

    "Transforming!"
    Would you listen to Practicing the Power of Now again? Why?

    Yes. I would listen over and over. This book has created a life changing experience for me. I am in the helping profession and it is not only a way of practicing being present but teaching others, especially young children as well.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Practicing the Power of Now?

    The entire book is amazing.


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

    I have listened to the original book The Power of Now.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    This book helped me feel very at peace inside.


    Any additional comments?

    I love this author and the message within The Power of Now. I am planning to continue to collect his books and practice the teachings conveyed within.

    "Perfect Introduction to Meditation"

    This book and the narration were a perfect introduction to meditation for me. This is the first opportunity I've had to listen to a meditation cd/book and the pace and the words really resonated with me and my current situation. 5 stars all the way. Thank you

    How Eckhart Tolle does it I don't know. It is magical just listening to him. He makes being still & in the now so simple. I know that I will be listening to this book again & again & again .....

    Story
    "I'm flabbergasted how this man has opened my eyes."

    I found the book a refreshing surprise. It's an easily digestible aid to the Power of Now, which I personally feel attuned to. The narrative provides a good housekeeping guide for the listener. Beautifully read, the idea is well conceived and executed.

    For a month now I've been listening thrice weekly and I'm still unearthing gems to sustain my present state of grace, which makes me smile at the sheer value!

    Life situations that previously challenged me by draining all my reserves just seem effortless now. Interestingly, people who seek conflict during the daily commute or work colleagues with their own personal battles to overcome, seem powerless now provided I observe the simple premise of the book.

    The burden of cancer still lives in my close family and life situations continue to crash down on me, yet somehow this author has signposted a way of unfolding my conscious self from body and mind.

    I recommend this book to those with an amber or green light for spiritualism.

    Hope you enjoy as much as I do.

    A great book to help on your journey to find inner peace. I found I needed to listen to certain chapters over & over to fully understand certain suggestions but I'm so glad I discovered Eckart Tolle he's a truly inspirational person who has definitely made a difference on my personal journey to a happy &peaceful life. A very grateful reader 😁💗

    "Compact, practical wisdom. Must read. "

    Drawing on spiritual wisdom from all o'er t'shop; dispensing with doctrine and opaque parables, distilling to the very essence, the practical methods and the result.

    I distain the self help gurus and quasi-religious platitudes in general but Tolle has managed to secure core theological tenants and communicate them neatly with practical applications. Nowhere in the Bible will you get examples with car alarms. :)

    This is the most compact book of practical wisdom I've ever come across.
