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.

Excellent Refresher

I listened to the Power of Now and found it wonderfully valuable. However, at 7 hours long, it's tough to use for reviewing the key lessons.

Practicing the Power of Now is more condensed and bite-sized. You can listen in 10-15 minute chunks and get real value. Or, listen to the entire book at once and get a complete reset.

I wouldn't buy this unless you've read or listened to the Power of Now, because you need to understand and believe the theories so well explained in that book. As a refesher, however, I found it very, very helpful, and more than worth the purchase price.

Stillness and inner peace!!!

This book is transforming, was on my second round with Power of Now, but this book puts it in a condensed sections of where it breaks it down to meaningful sessions that are provoking. The exercises he has you do help you to be still and reach inside to your inner body and helps you to let go of the thinking pattern going on. each session I am able to reach more of more of awakening! I find myself going hours of the Non thinking mind if I am not working. It is very refreshing and brings peace and calm in your every day life. I highly recommend this book to anyone wanting to be free from negative and bad behaviors, such as depression, anxiety, moodiness, all sorts of illnesses. I was in a state of deep depression when I started my journey and now I no longer identify myself by my past or from what others think of me, that is none of my business! Its great to have that freedom! it has even made changes to our lovely cat Buddy. he is much calmer and more affectionate around me.

Realizing the Power

This is an excellent audiobook. It is repetitious, yes from the Power of Now but he the more you listen to it and don't try to figure it out, you will understand what he is trying to convey to you by just listening with and open mind. If you DO NOT have deep sorrow or need to find how to control your mind and seT your mind at peace then this book is not for you. It is to be listened to and listened to and then it all comes together. Little by little the words are consoling, and enlightening. I would recommend getting POWER OR NOW first and then listening to this book.

Despite some apprehension, really liked this.

I'm not a new-age kind of guy, but I really liked this audiobook. The ideas are very interesting and even life-changing. It is really worth your time to listen to this book.

And forgive the author for his occasional use of new-age sounding terms; his message and the concepts seem very solid notwithstanding.

Power of Now w/o the Q&A

What made the experience of listening to Practicing the Power of Now the most enjoyable?

Eckhart Tolle is the absolutely best of his kind, followed by Alan Watts and Ram Dass.

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

The Power of Now is the culmination of all of Tolle's works. I've read them all, and this one seems to distill the essence of his teaching. It's priceless.

Powerful and entertaining

Something about the way Tolle expresses himself is so entertaining. He gets his point across by asking simple questions with obvious answers that bring to light the nonsensical ways in which we think. This book truly enriched my life, introducing me to my own life using explanations so entertaining, self evident and logical that even my very cynical and anti-spiritual German husband enjoyed listening with me.

how to let go of future and past

Tolle is a spiritual master and his books are documents of this mastery. This book is one of his shorter ones and introduces you to the idea of the NOW which is, in Tolle's view, the only thing that really exists. Past and future have no intrinsic reality to them.
He explains also how to live in the now and what could prevent you from doing so and how to overcome these obstacles.
Tolle's somewhat monotonous, but warm and almost hypnotizing voice makes particularly the audio book a true spiritual experience that you don't want to miss.
This book might as well change the way you approach life. And be assured it will be a change you will like.

The Power of Now

the words in this book convey to me the essential Truths about Life in a way that is so easy to understand. I highly recommend this to anyone with the desire to "know thyself".

Eyes open

Any additional comments?

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.

This is the very important basics!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

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.

Realising yourself

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.

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!

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.

The power of Now

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 😁💗

Same as 'The Power of Now'

I was hoping for some extension of The Power of Now. This is almost identical. Even has many of the same phrases and examples. Just get the original.

essential for your journey towards enlightenment

This is so informative for anyone wishing to learn to release mental pain or gain skills towards being at peace in life.
Some may find Tolle's narrative to be monotone but it didn't bother me.

It took me a while to get used to the language and concepts and I listened to a few chapters over and over again. Amazingly insightful but practical advice that I will now try to follow for the rest of my life.
