Publisher's Summary

Eckhart Tolle tells us that every encounter we have with another human being offers the opportunity for profound connection and transformation. For those who've made it their life's work to help others, this insight is especially powerful.

Today, many people in what Eckhart calls "the helping professions" - including therapists, counselors, and other caregivers - are eager to learn practical ways to incorporate his guidance into their work. Becoming a Teacher of Presence brings you an in-depth audio program on accessing the source of wisdom and healing beyond the thinking mind while in the service of others.

Being in the Company of Being

Who - or what - actually teaches? How do we know when we're offering genuine guidance versus something based in ego? What practices can we use to stay rooted in Presence while listening to and speaking with clients? Join Eckhart Tolle for this four-session exploration of "being in the company of Being" as we work with others in a helping or healing capacity.

"It's one thing to believe that every encounter with another human being is sacred, and another to know it directly while in relationship," teaches Eckhart. "That is love; that is what transforms the world." Becoming a Teacher of Presence invites you to realize this sacred connection in the work you do with others.

Highlights:

  • Finding freedom from thought and living a life of Presence
  • The evolution of Eckhart's teaching
  • Awakening through adversity
  • Why we're always teaching (or not teaching) Presence
  • Working with physical challenges and managing pain
  • The fallacy of readiness to teach - and being comfortable "not knowing"
  • Guidance for working with individuals and in group settings
  • Who - or what - teaches?
  • Being in the company of Being - the value of sangha (spiritual community)
  • The practice of gazing
  • Bringing thoughtless awareness to everything
  • The awakening of true intelligence
  • Eckhart's story as a healer
  • When to charge for your services
  • Six hours of teachings, practices, and Q&A with Eckhart

Worth it for the laughing and sound effects alone!

I didn't know this was a recording of a workshop, but it's wonderful all the same. Ever time I listened, I found myself smiling so much from all the laughing done at this workshop, making me feel like I was one of the participants. And then there's the wisdom of Tolle. So profound. I'm not a spiritual person, and for those parts I just tuned out, but everything else was very moving, very transformative.

one of the most beautiful Eckhart talks

ET talks about so many things and clears up a lot of misconceptions. Loved it.

Stillness

Great complement to previous work, with more focus on skills to teach and share with others. I couldn’t stop listening. Full of insights. Will listen again in the future.

Love the ending. Only stillness matters in absolute, all other things matter relatively

So Slow

So painfully slow even on high read speed I could not get past the first few sections. Topic was appealing to me, but just so slow speaker.

Another great work oozing Presence

More literature and word on creating personal Peace which transmutes to others. Practical tips on 'allowing' mental and physical pain to be felt and passed through whilst staying Present in Stillness for oneself and others. A real Spiritual solution for today's dis-ease and discontentment. Simple to follow and practice.

Essential for all beings

This is next level of practicing presence and living in the world. We all need to rise above the thinking of becoming something, even if it’s becoming a teacher.

Really proud pointers to truth.
I must for everyone.

Like a blanket of comfort for those who work ‘with’ people

Profoundly helpful. Comforting. Lots of examples and repeated truths to help us ‘helpers’ to BE.

In question and answer format. Really lovely.

Eckhart can do no wrong in my opinion

Altho hi we are devoid of opinion when we are fully present in spaciousness of course.
Helped me accept and surrender through this years of debilitating illness

Good supplementary material for teaching

I found this audio collection to be a good supplement for teaching and group work. It draws on some of ET’s experience as a teacher and therapist, along with using his standard teachings in presence and becoming more aware of one’s presence, life, etc. and less involved in thought. This set probably won’t be so useful for someone just coming into the author’s teachings or just getting started with mindfulness etc, but does contain some unique material related to the title.
