Summary

Eckhart Tolle has emerged as one of the finest spiritual teachers of our time. His message is simple yet profound and delivered in such a gentle, humorous way that a vast number of people from diverse backgrounds, traditions, and religions have embraced it.

Living a Life of Inner Peace is a recording of one of Eckhart's most moving, transformative talks. The talk is relaxed and funny, and he conveys his message through stories and insightful observation. Eckhart makes us laugh at ourselves, while helping us break through habitual thinking to discover the eternal presence of the Now.

When you listen, you discover that something deeper is happening beyond the words being spoken. A field of alert stillness arises where before there was mental noise. You find yourself in what Eckhart calls a state of presence, and it can lead to a dramatic transformation in the way you live your life.

For those new to Eckhart's teachings, this is an ideal introduction. For those familiar with his work, be prepared for something fresh and extraordinary.

In gratitude to the part of us that calls itself Eckhart Tolle

This is pure Eckhart at his very best.
There is so much contained within this relatively short teaching that I know I shall come back to it again and again and again and again.
Money well spent.
I recommend this to anyone who has ears to listen.

Try it, you've got everything to lose 😉

Download, headphones on, press play, go for a walk. that's the advice I was given, it worked for me.

Light and fun

This is another excerpt from one of Eckhart Tolles talks, where he speaks extemporaneously to a group, rather than reading a book. If you've listened to other talks he's given (most notably Realizing The Power of Now), you know that he is usually in no hurry to share his insights. His speech is often remarkable in that there are often VERY long pauses between his words, so long that you occasionally begin to wonder if your MP3 player ran out of batteries. (I'm not criticizing this - after all, one of his main teachings is to listen to the silence between words - he just gives you lots of opportunity!)

This talk is very different. He comes across as animated, enthusiastic, and funny. He pokes fun of the mind on many occasions, so accurately it feels almost like he can tell what you are thinking. I laughed out loud several times in this delightful 2 hours. The topics he covered extended past those he brought up in the Power of Now, to include what common tricks the mind uses to pull us back out of the present, and how and why it is so important for us always to be right and others to be wrong. This talk seemed to have more immediate practical manifestations in my life than others that he has given. The topics he brought up here reminded me very much of a course I've taken called The Landmark Forum.

The Power of Now itself was the single most life-changing book I have ever read. This talk is a wonderful extension and expansion of the philosophy, but for those unfamiliar with Eckhart Tolle I wouldn't recommend starting with this before listening to The Power of Now.

One of My Favorites

This is one of my favorite audible downloads. I've listened to it several times. If you liked Eckhart Tolle's "The Power of Now" and his teaching, you will enjoy this recording. He is talking to the audience rather than reading a book. It is full of insights, practical examples, and humor. Eckhart Tolle's common-man personality comes through.

clear, inspiring and amusing

A clear, inspiring and amusing compendium of Tolle's teachings about the power of NOW, the power of the present moment as the only moment for true peace and happiness ("you can't find yourself in time, you can only find yourself in the now")

Inspiring in its simplicity

Echart Tolle came into my life purely by accident when I ordered a Netflix Video series called The Flowering of the Human Conscience by Eckhart Tolle whom I had never heard of. I was expecting something very different. I am beginning to wonder if there was some other force working to help put me on the right track, because I would not have had any reason to rent this DVD disc series. I had only been renting workout videos for the past several weeks. When I stuck it in the DVD player, I saw a simple looking man stepped onto the stage and started talking. My first thought was, oh lord, what the heck did I get myself into here, but after 5 minutes I was captivated, and was blown away by the simple yet powerful message. I was not looking for spiritual direction, but got it non-the-less and in a very enlightening way. I have to date purchased 4 of his audio books, and my life has been changed forever in a gloriously calming way. I am eternally grateful for this chance meeting with Mr. Tolle,and his life-changing message about the meaning of life.

A way to peace

All in all a good bargain at the price. Really not all that different than the Power of Now but his interaction with the audience is a nice touch. I personally like his slow delivery and concise words. His voice and message brings peace to my world.

Every listen, I learn something new. AND funny!

I have listened to this talk dozens of times. Literally. It is amazing. And funny!!! I’d come to the end and think, “Tell me again...” and start it over. It changed my life and it’s been 8 years and the change stuck. I love this so much.

Inner Peace by Tolle

Want an opportunity to look inside yourself and laugh? This speech will allow you to do that. I've listened to it many times, and it still leaves me laughing and feeling good.

Humour, grace and guidance

Too short! So lovely to listen to this man and his guidance. His clarity and gentle presence is even more enjoyable for the humour he brings to his talks.

Amusing!

Tolle's voice and demeanour adds a lot to the experience. some profound moments throughout. Live audience reactions give this a different feel.
