I really wanted to like Tolle, and in some ways I do. But I feel as though he has grabbed a lot of the great things from a multiplicity of religious traditions and put them together. Which sounds good at first, until you realize that it means that it can't all be true. Most of the religions of the world are mutually exclusive and if one is true, the other one can't be true at the same time. Even so, Tolle grabs them all and mashes them together, resulting in some stuff that sounds good, but has no real substance of truth at the core. I had heard a lot about his ideas about stillness and meditation, so I listened to this, hoping that there might still be some interesting points on those subjects. While there were definitely a couple of bits that are good to ponder, much of it comes across as fluff and pop-psychology. I must admit, that in my mind, it is a bit more solid than much of the other pop-psychology that I see around today, but without that core of truth, where are you? ( )

An excellent continuation of Eckhart Tolle's teachings. First read or listen to The Power of Now. Then continue with one of the many recorded retreats which are now available. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 157731509X, Hardcover)

A two-day retreat at Findhorn, Scotland — famous as a spiritual center on the leading edge of personal and global transformation — offered an ideal showcase for Eckhart Tolle's transformative concepts, documented in this exciting package containing a book and two DVDs that capture the author at his best. Using his trademark lighthearted but penetrating style, Tolle explores in depth the concept of stillness and how to achieve it. Only by doing so, says the author, can transformation occur. Stillness offers a doorway into the Now and to true personal enlightenment, according to Tolle. Too often, people become trapped in their mind-created sense of self. He explains the compulsions that drive people’s thoughts as they analyze, interpret, and label every conscious experience they have. The result? An inability to perceive the sacredness in oneself and the natural world. Eckhart Tolle's Findhorn Retreat offers serene sanity in a world in desperate need of it.

Eckhart explains how to deepen one's awareness of the sacredness of life and offers the clear guidance needed to deeply realize the magic of every moment.
