Summary

Discover the timeless Presence beyond thought in this collection of meditations from Eckhart Tolle

We tend to think of meditation as a formal practice we block time out for each day. But what if every moment of your life was your meditation?

For Eckhart Tolle, meditation shouldn't be approached as a chore or a means to an end. Rather, meditation is something that you live. "The aim of meditation," states Eckhart, "is that it eventually becomes your normal state of consciousness." Essential Meditations with Eckhart Tolle points the way toward this quiet, constant state of Presence - where practice gives way to the realization of your innermost identity.

This retrospective collection gathers rare talks and classic meditations from Eckhart's extensive teachings, many of which have only been available to retreat participants. Over the course of eleven sessions, Eckhart leads you in meditations for breaking attachment to the stream of thought, easing suffering, discerning your "formless" self, and embodying Presence in every single moment.

Here Eckhart will guide you in discovering: 

  • The power of asking "Who am I?" as an inquiry practice
  • Why Stillness is much more than quieting the unruly mind
  • The true source of all creativity
  • The evocative poetry of Steve Taylor
  • Why awakening is a process of unlearning your assumptions and biases
  • The infinite space hidden between your thoughts
  • Recognizing yourself as embodied Presence rather than an accumulation of narratives
  • Understanding the movement of chi or prana in the body
  • The joyous simplicity of present-moment mindfulness
  • How to rise above the thinking mind rather than sinking below it

In Essential Meditations with Eckhart Tolle, you will find not only teachings about transcending the thought-based self, but a direct experience of Stillness itself.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Essential Pointing to Freedom

I'm familiar with quite a few spiritual teachings. This has to be one of the clearest and simplest guidances to bring the attention to rest in presence. Eckhart's voice is so calming and the spaces between and around his words convey the spaciousness of being like no other teacher.

Very relaxing to hear Eckhart Tolle talk

You always learn something from Eckhart Tolle talking and is refreshing for what you already learned with him. Thank you very much Eckhart for helping us to connect to what we already have deep inside us.

Not what I expected

A lot of nothing. Lots of time used up in this book with silence. Then he starts talking again random thoughts he has even bringing up something he had read about somewhere. This just wasn’t what I had thought it would be.

Poor quality rexording

Horrible sound quality. Unprofessional, sounds like a recording of a recording. I love the author, but meditation to a choppy static sounding recording is quite unpleasant. Was really surprised and disappointed

Not his best

I am an Eckhart Tolle fan. I have all his books in my library and listen to them over and over. This was disappointing. His usual dry wit was missing as was his enthusiasm.
