Full Description

Perhaps you can recall a time when you felt more alive than at any other moment—when you had a sudden recognition of beauty, a feeling of deep contentment, and a sense of connection with life greater than you had ever thought possible. And then, this fleeting moment was gone. What if you could recapture that remarkable opening, and make it a consistent way of living in the world? 

Course objectives:

  • Practice using your inner body as an anchor to the "Now"—realizing the gift of full attention, and cultivating moments of pure awareness through the simple act of noticing.
  • Discuss the authentic grace, original innocence, the liberation of laughter, and nature as a bridge to the divine—available to us all.
  • Define "awakening", discover how to dissolve your pain-body with the light of consciousness and why creativity and healing can come only from presence.
  • Explain why "the teacher" is always within you and how to enter the "Now" through the portal called "allow."
  • Describe how to find peace that underlies loss.
  • Summarize how to catch your reactive thoughts before they catch you, and how to expand the space between your thoughts for a deeper experience of the "Now."

Throughout Europe and North America, a man named Eckhart Tolle has emerged as a teacher with the unique ability to draw us into the awakened state he calls presence. With Realizing the Power of Now: An In-Depth Retreat with Eckhart Tolle, you have an unparalleled opportunity to immerse yourself in the timeless dimension—a place within us that always is and ever will be beyond the turmoil of life, a world of calm beyond words, of joy that has no opposite.

Return to Presence Again and Again

A walk in nature. A personal crisis. A moment of laughter. These can all serve as portals that take us to the depth and wonder of the Now. But how do we access these portals so that we dwell in presence more and more often? With Tolle's guidance, you will discover many simple ways to leave behind the chaos and suffering of the mind-made world, and enter this state of serenity and grace.

On Realizing the Power of Now, Eckhart will show you how to go beyond the endless stream of thoughts, and simply allow whatever is happening to occur; how to use sense perceptions and your inner body to find a peace that exists independent of conditions; and how to see past the "little me" and my story, and find your home in the living Now.

An Extended Retreat with Eckhart Tolle

Since the spiritual transformation that changed his life more than 20 years ago, Eckhart Tolle has replaced the park bench where he gave his first lessons with a chair and microphone, and now helps countless men and women from all walks of life to perceive what it really means to be alive.

Recorded at a momentous five-day retreat led by Eckhart Tolle, here is a special invitation to transcend the finite world of fluctuating thoughts, ambitions, and fears, and touch your true essence: that which has no form, no time, and no name. Spoken simply, with his hallmark warmth, humor, and compassion, here is Eckhart's full presentation of a beautiful way to live that arises through Realizing the Power of Now.

    The TRUTH

    I’ve been listening to these cds for at least 3 years now and I still get new insight into the truth on a regular basis.

    I try not to judge or imagine what ET means...I just listen. Everything he says is a verbal description of the truth....reality. I find that when I realize what ET is describing...know it....it is not a feeling of having acquired “new” knowledge.....the knowledge was already there...I only become aware of what is already there...or here.....

    I’ve had this experience many times in meditation and listening to ET or reading I Am That or Ramona Maharshi .....all the same using different words....because there is only one truth or one reality.

    Was so excited to get this CD series, but I honestly felt like it was hours of listening to a few key words said over and over, that said nothing. No doubt this guy is brilliant, but needs to bring it to a level people can understand and relate to. Complete and total disappointment.

    A gem of a recording

    This retreat recording has a lot of "pointers" about accessing the state of being in the now, spaciousness, presence. I recommend it for anyone who is truly tired of suffering and want to practice being in the now. It would be helpful to have read his book The Power of Now. Very pure early Eckhart teachings here, a gem of a recording.
