Especially relevant to these changing times is the message of Eckhart Tolle, who speaks to the innate power each individual possesses to see anew and thereby transform. He speaks of “watching the thinker,” our own mind and its myriad machinations, and addresses forgiveness, surrender, negativity, freedom, time as illusion and more. Tolle’s insights about the new world we have entered since the events of September 11,2001 are particularly engaging. This is a rare dialogue with the spiritual teacher and author of the highly acclaimed, bestselling book, The Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment.
Eckhart Tolle was born in Germany, graduated from the University of London, and was a research scholar at Cambridge University. At the age of 29 a profound spiritual transformation radically changed the course of his life, and marked the beginning of an intense inward journey. For the past ten years he has been a counselor and spiritual teacher throughout Europe and North America. His books include Stillness Speaks (New World Library 2003), Practicing The Power of Now (New World Library 1999 ), The Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment (New World Library 1999), and the widely acclaimed A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life’s Purpose ((New World Library 2008).
