The content is inspiring as ever with Pema Chodron’s words. Especially the 20th anniversary afterword. The narration is so good I forgot it wasn’t the author herself.

  • A New Earth

Humanity now, perhaps more than in any previous time, has an opportunity to create a new, saner, more loving world. This will involve a radical inner leap from the current egoic consciousness to an entirely new one. In illuminating the nature of this shift in consciousness, Tolle describes in detail how our current ego-based state of consciousness operates. Then gently, and in very practical terms, he leads us into this new consciousness. We will come to experience who we truly are and learn to live and breathe freely.

I appreciate Eckhart Tolle reading his own work. His emphasis brings out the meaning very effectively. I loved this book when I read it 10 years ago. It’s just as affecting today.

I've read the book over many years but hearing her talk about it's contents is magical and inspiring. The vibration in her voice, the tone, the pace, bring the contents to life. I look forward to re-listening for the sheer pleasure of it.

Eleanor Oliphant has learned how to survive - but not how to live. Eleanor Oliphant leads a simple life. She wears the same clothes to work every day, eats the same meal deal for lunch every day and buys the same two bottles of vodka to drink every weekend. Eleanor Oliphant is happy. Nothing is missing from her carefully timetabled life. Except, sometimes, everything. One simple act of kindness is about to shatter the walls Eleanor has built around herself. Now she must learn how to navigate the world....
