Publisher's Summary

Eckhart Tolle shares the timeless teachings and practical wisdom of five classic works.

Why is it that some books remain relevant hundreds of years after they were first written? "Powerful books are more than simply books," teaches Eckhart Tolle. "They are living energy fields that correspond with and open us to the state of consciousness in which they were written."

In Eckhart Tolle on Great Western Classics, Eckhart shares from his personal bookshelf five works he holds dear to his heart and continues to turn to for guidance and inspiration. "Because they speak to the human condition - to each one of us - these writings have survived through the ages to offer practical wisdom about how to live sanely in the world," he explains.

Join Eckhart as he brings to life the words and teachings of those he considers some of the earliest "flowers" of the awakening new consciousness, in five entertaining and informative talks including:

  • "Eckhart on Emerson" - Eckhart reads and comments on passages from the collected essays of Ralph Waldo Emerson
  • "Meditations" by Marcus Aurelius - discover the contemplations of the Roman emperor with an extraordinary understanding of our shared human joys and sorrows
  • "The Wisdom of Epictetus" - Eckhart explores the teachings of the former slave and Stoic philosopher who pointed to the contents of our thoughts as the source of suffering
  • "The Imitation of Christ" - the path to spiritual awakening, as revealed by the 14th-century mystic Thomas à Kempis
  • "On Contentment: An Essay by Plutarch" - a timeless teaching on unblocking the obstacles to the inner peace that is everyone's birthright

Whether you're familiar with these perennial gems or hearing about them for the first time, Eckhart Tolle on Great Western Classics is a uniquely engaging learning experience with the best-selling author and teacher.

Excellent - Worth the Buy

Most of these talks can be found online, but the quality, length, and collection is far better than anything you'll find on YouTube, and for an affordable price. I have all of Eckharts books on audible and this is one of the better quality ones.

excellent as always from Elkhart Tolle.

Great insight from Ekhart on some ancient famous texts. His observations are inspiring and at times very funny.

Not a book!!

This is not a book. A book is a pre written series of chapters which in the audible form is read by the author in a clear fashion, all the better for his familiarity with the text because of his authorship. I was so disappointed to hear Tolle fumble his way through searching for pages and struggling for commentary in a totally unrehearsed and disjointed manner. Some of the gaps in commentary were embarrassingly long and boring, a bit like a high school student fumbling his way through an unprepared history assignment. Very disappointing. Please do not expect a book. It is not. I want my money back!

Slow and boring

Great idea but slow and boooring. Lots of long-winded explanations but few insights. Obviously just a money making trow-together.

My favourite ET

Brilliant energy, discussion and vibe. ET reading is best described as pure consciousness. What a joyous and peaceful gift.
