The Now is inseparable from who you are at the deepest level. It is the prerequisite of Being. As you listen to the words on this tape, you participate in the retreat. To "retreat" means to step back - not only from the outer world, but also from the world in your head, the thinking mind. Allow the sound of the words to take you beyond words and beyond sound to the stillness within. Allow the Now to be as it is and so realize the formless essence of the Now as consciousness itself.
Suggested practice: use the lesson throughout the day.
Blessings on your Journey into your Self.

"The Journey into Yourself"
If you've listened to or read "The Power of Now" or any of Ekhart's other works and enjoyed these, I don't think it's possible that you could listen to this and not find it an awesome recording. The Journey into Yourself was recorded at one of Ekhart's three day retreats. Delivering a magical mix of insight, humour and serenity there is no doubt that this man has awakened an energy in himself that we all unconsciously or even consciously seek to reunite with. Ekhart, in the most gentle of ways, is on a mission to facilitate this process for any human being who is open and ready.
"Reaches the parts other teachings can't....."
I bought this audiobook after reading The Power of Now and A New Earth. This recording works very well as it has a relaxed, conversational quality to it.
There is something about Eckhart Tolle's teachings that reaches into a person and awakens a realisation of something that had been forgotten.
I found the audiobook entertaining, funny, heart-warming and full of insight, and promptly started listening to it all over again once I reached the end of it, such was my reluctance to end the connection. It felt like coming home.
"A wonderful journey of self discovery"
I was expecting this audiobook to be similar to Tolle's previous work The Power of Now - and in many ways it was. However, it is far more powerful, emotional and interesting. I wonder if this is in part because the recording was made at a live seminar, and you can here the audience participation as well as Tolle's laughter and can sense the atmosphere. I am finding great joy in being in the current moment, rather than either thinking endlessly of past moments or living for future ones.
Everyone should listen to this groundbreaking recording.
Having been a fan for some time now I feel slightly biased in this review, however, this live recording is both a great introduction and addition to the work of Eckheart.
the audience is clearly audible in the background, I feel this add's to the overall quality and listening experience.
Listen it and you will be very nice surprise. It is really very good and well listened. Worth of listen before The Power of Now. It helps to understand it better!Enjoy!
"Such a shame"
I am somewhat of an eckhart fan, for many years I have listened to his words. This is a VERY good structured listen BUT..... Certain members of the audience are incredibly annoying, to the point that I am unable to listen to the second half. It was giving me a good lesson in accepting sounds as they are. But this was too much!
"Hmm, Not at all sure about this!"
Having read the reviews I decided to purchase this title. My initial response was slight annoyance at his airy-fairy, insubstantial and somewhat meandering ideas. While there are some very valid and helpful ideas and a great sense of relaxed peace and quietude, this is sadly disturbed by his audience guffaws and cackles but worse (as another reviewer said) is his 'sniggering' and the 'heavy breathing' obviously caused by the microphone being too close to his mouth. Creepy! I have decided after several 'tries' that I cannot listen to him and sadly will not be able to take advantage of any of his teachings.
I'm afraid that although Tolle has some interesting things to say, the way he delivers is annoying. He speaks too close to the microphone, one can hear him breathe which becomes claustrophobic, and he sniggers at his own jokes incessantly (accompanied by a member of the audience who whinnies in the background all the time), which really takes one's mind away from the seriousness of the subject he is treating. A disappointment.
"Waste of time and money..."
This is my first review ever, because normally I'm very patient and understanding. But this...
I admit, now and then you may hear some good ideas (which however you will forget immediately). But with all due respect how horrendously annoying this audio book was!!! Long pauses, his flat jokes and his constant giggling at them, his loud breathing, and people from the audience laughing when actually nothing funny was even told! So just do yourself a favour - don't buy this book, save your time and money!
