What is time? We give it so much importance, but as Eckhart Tolle teaches, we can only ever experience the timeless present. The Illusion of Time explores this paradox, pointing the way out of a dysfunctional relationship to time—and into the fullness of life in the here and now.

In this empowering two-session program, Eckhart exposes the roots of our obsession with time to help us free ourselves from the ongoing stream of thoughts about the past and future—and reconnect with the depths of who we are beyond the mind.

Excellent description of time! Explains how to use it when needed and how to escape it for being in presence.

Best-selling author and spiritual guide Eckhart Tolle led a remarkable two-day retreat at Findhorn, Scotland, a community on the leading edge of personal and global transformation. His weekend talks, captured on audio, create a deeply moving experience for listeners. Speaking on the subject of stillness, which he describes as a doorway into the Now and to true personal enlightenment, Tolle shows listeners how to find stillness in the present moment and enter a deeper dimension of peace and fulfillment.

Elkhart Tolle does such a wonderful job of relating his message in a meaningful modern way, that it is hard to not listen to this book in its entirety!

Dr. Francis Collins, head of the Human Genome Project, is one of the world's leading scientists, yet he is also a man of unshakable faith in God and scripture. Dr. Collins has resolved the dilemma that haunts everyone who believes in God and respects science. Faith in God and faith in science can be harmonious, not separately but together, combined into one worldview. For Collins, science does not conflict with the Bible, science enhances it.

The author revealed many interesting scenarios that I would not of thought of concerning science, ethics, and spirituality. He gave me new insights to some of the resulting dilemmas.

In The Flowering of Human Consciousness, you will come face-to-face with Eckhart Tolle for a transformational meeting with this respected teacher and influential author. In clear language, Eckhart explains the process of entering the "miraculous" state of presence that is always available to us. We are lost, he says, in the maze of our own compulsive thoughts. Only by ceasing this "mental noise" can we dissolve our egos, and enable the "flowering of a new consciousness" to proceed.

This series represents an opportunity to participate in a one week retreat with Eckhart and so to go deeper into stillness – becoming one with who you are in the depth of your Being. A certain degree of spiritual maturity, however, is required of anyone wishing to participate fully in this retreat series. What is spiritual maturity? You know the meaning of presence, not as a concept, but as a living reality.

I have read all of Tolle's books and thought I would like to hear his words from one of his retreats. It was very informative and helpful. I would recommend this for anyone starting to question their beliefs of the world.
