If you are reading this you probably already are, like myself, a huge Eckhart fan. You will not be disappointed with these DVDs. I own practically everthing Eckhart has put out, and once again he does an amazing job. In addition to his "normal" talk about stillness and being present because that's all there is, he is really very funny and entertaining on these DVDs. Also, the picture and sound quality is quite good.
Tip: I purchased my copy of Findhorn Retreat directly from Eckhart's website because they include a FREE DVD with a 1 hour interview of Eckhart. I've always been curious about Eckhart as a person and this interviewer asks him many of the "personal" questions about his background, about growing up as a child, about the difference in his life now that he makes a lot of money (funny enough, he says he rarely buys things, that it's enough to just "look at them" and so the money hasn't made much of a change in his life at all!). Obviously he doesn't talk about these things during his usual presentations, so I found them very interesting to hear how he handles "fame and success".
I can't tell you how great this DVD is (it's called "The Simple Truth" and is only available from Eckharts site, but again, amazingly, they throw it in Free when you purchase the Findhorn DVDs and book!)
Hope this feedback helps!

Those phenomenon allowed me to quiet my mind, live in the present and do things I imagined I could do, but could not have done otherwise. I got into and graduated from medical school (I am from a blue collar family), while going through a divorce. They put me into a place where I was able to woo and marry a special woman. Then I fell deeply into form, materialism, egoism while anguishing about the past as I awaited the future rewards I felt I richly deserved. Over these last 25 years my life completely unravelled. I became a bitter, angry, pain-ridden shell. Big house, fancy cars, world travel and a quickening descent into hell. (I even got a law degree. Maybe I could defend my-self). Nothing worked.
Until Eckhart emerged from obscurity (part of his story) into my story. Suddenly senselessness made sense. The past and the future began to shrink into, simply, now. Now I am so alive, full of joy, without being full of me. I work in a maximum security prison as a psychiatrist, the only death chamber in Florida is 200 yards from my office. The staff, the prisoners, the outside visitors see this place as a place of sadness and despair. Thanks to the universal channel that Eckhart has tuned me into, there is a little smile on my face every moment I am there. Amazingly, everyone around has begun to smile, every now and then. Not because of the little me, but because of what is flowing through me. What is flowing through me? The beauty and goodness and love that exists inside of them. They don't know that is where my smile is coming from. I hope and pray they discover that.
Thank you Eckhart for suffering so much, so you could bring me into the present, into the now, to feel the stillness in the midst of chaos.
Just so you know, this is not published by Sounds True like all the rest and the format is a little different... a man introduces him and there is no tracklisting whatsoever.
And lastly, for four discs at about an hour each, this is the best deal you could possibly find (thanks amazon!)... skip "realizing the power of now" and get this.

I find Eckhart Tolle very off putting. I purchased this recording based on the enthusiasm of Oprah Winfrey for Mr. Tolle. Read morePublished 6 months ago by Dragonfly
