About the Author

Eckhart Tolle Spiritual Teacher and author was born in Germany and educated at the Universities of London and Cambridge. At the age of twenty-nine a profound inner transformation radically changed the course of his life. The next few years were devoted to understanding, integrating and deepening that transformation, which marked the beginning of an intense inward journey. Later, he began to work in London with individuals and small groups as a counselor and spiritual teacher. Since 1995 he has lived in Vancouver, Canada. Eckhart Tolle is the author of the #1 New York Times bestseller The Power of Now (translated into 33 languages) and the highly acclaimed follow-up A New Earth, which are widely regarded as two of the most influential spiritual books of our time. Eckhart s profound yet simple teachings have already helped countless people throughout the world find inner peace and greater fulfillment in their lives. At the core of the teachings lies the transformation of consciousness, a spiritual awakening that he sees as the next step in human evolution. An essential aspect of this awakening consists in transcending our ego-based state of consciousness. This is a prerequisite not only for personal happiness but also for the ending of violent conflict endemic on our planet. Eckhart is a sought-after public speaker and teaches and travels extensively throughout the world. Many of his talks, intensives and retreats are published on CD and DVD. Most of the teachings are given in English, but occasionally Eckhart also gives talks in German and Spanish. In addition to The Power of Now and A New Earth, Eckhart has written a book designed for meditative reading entitled Stillness Speaks. A book consisting of selections from The Power of Now is also available, entitled Practicing the Power of Now.

I have found all Eckhart Tolle's books and CDs excellent. I have read and listened to many other spiritual teachers and, for me, Tolle is the most calming and mind changing. He has a wonderful sesnse of humour, a quiet tranquil way of talking and gently points out how crazily our human minds work. If I wake up in the morning out of sorts or uptight I just listen to some of a Tolle CD. It always gives me a better perspective on whatever is getting to me and puts me a much more peaceful state to start my day.

Tolle has written several books and done a series of CDs that include his workshops and readings of his books. They all have something slightly different to offer. This particular CD "Finding Your Life's Purpose" is, I think, his best. I highly recommend it particularly to those who want to find that seemingly unattainable peace of mind.

Having read The Power of Now and A New Earth, I was curious to find out if this CD set offered anything new from E. Tolle. It does, the CDs are good for people already familiar with E. Tolle's work as well as people who have never heard of him, like my son.

My 18 year old son was in the car with me with me when I first listened to the CDs and he was intrigued by them. My son said that E. Tolle's voice was very soothing and peaceful, and that the author had some interesting things to say. My son hasn't ready any of Tolle's books. So I guess the material in this CD set is good for both, people who have never heard of Tolle (like my son) and for people who already know him (like me).

The two CDs make up one talk, so it's best if you listen to them in sequence the first time around. After that, I've left any of the two disks in the car CD player and when it plays I get something more out of it that somehow I didn't get the first time.

The author leads you to a discussion of our life's purpose, he speaks about a primary and a secondary purpose and how by focusing too much on our secondary purpose, we may miss out on the primary purpose of our lives, which is to live in the now. The talk leaves you with a deep sense of peace and joy.

Today my son asked me to play "that guy's CD, the one with the soothing voice". I guess he's ready to read E. Tolle's books.

Ever notice that your thoughts - especially the negative ones - are fairly repetitive? Find it hard to sit still and empty the mind, much less meditate? Then Tolle is a great place to start. I definitely wouldn't start with a live lecture, but one of his earlier studio readings. He's more articulate when recorded, and has a way of coming across in live audio as a bit crazy... with this nervous laugh. Tolle's great 101 reading for discovering self awareness and positivity and spirituality, because it's hard to access these if you're living in your brain. The underlying theme is that the brain is an organ that, left unchecked, will spew insanity. I do believe that people who live in the brain (as opposed to the "heart" or soul) are missing a lot of life, and have since discovered that the brain can be trusted as long as you don't define yourself in the brain. That you realize it's an organ to be used, not a master. My two cents: a) Tolle for an accessible start to higher living, and b) studio recordings first since the live events (while shorter) are not nearly as good. I've listened to Tolle's studio recordings many times, and still play them in my car when I'm feeling too attached to stupid things like work or people's perceptions of me.

Bottom line: Tolle readied me to be open to The Secret, Wayne Dyer, Louise Hayes and now some of the even deeper ideas I wouldn't have tolerated 2 years ago.

This teaching has a way of making you feel better about yourself. Tolle's voice however is so calm that you could sleep to it. So be careful behind the wheel with this one. I think it's fun when he chuckles. You can feel him shake with laughter from deep down inside himself. This is one to listen to when you feel frustrated with life and need encouragement.

At first when I heard Eckhart talking reeeeallllly slowly I thought "uh no, SURELY he's not going to be talking THIS slowly for the whole book!" Relax. He doesn't. He's just illustrating a point.

This is basically a summation of "The Power of Now" given during a talk he held - Shorter and in a more relaxed tone.

I liked this a lot, but the "Power of Now" is still my home base.

With Eckhart Tolle's assistance, we are reminded that we are able to fulfill our primary purpose when we live in the moment -- in the now without thought. Eckhart Tolle's CD has a calming message and is highly recommended.

I have listened to most of Tolle's teachings, have only read one book, the new earth which I am still working on, this teaching I got on DVD and I have to say for some reason this enlightened me in a way that the others had not. Although I have been practicing living in the now and have learned a lot about the power of not letting our minds go and keep us hostage, this one really helped me realize that my main purpose was to be in present moment, to be at peace and it hit me! Great work as usual!
