Streaming Audio (Immediate Access)
Digital goods limited to 1 product per purchase

Most of us spend the majority of our energy either doing things, or thinking about the things we want to do. But if that’s all we have, there is little room for something far more fulfilling: simply, to be. With The Joy of Being, Eckhart Tolle invites you to a nine-session audio program on transcending the egoic stage of “object identification” and recognizing who we are in our essential nature.

Full Description

Fulfillment and Joy through the Realization of Our Essential Identity

When challenges arise in your life, what happens inside of you? For many of us, the larger the “problem,” the more we resist, contract, and react unconsciously. On the other hand, explains Eckhart Tolle, in any given moment we have the chance to remain open to life, align with what is, and experience the natural sense of peace and aliveness that he calls “the joy of being.”

What It Really Means to “Be Yourself”

The Joy of Being is a nine-session program that explores the process of awakening to our identity beyond the limits of thought, and the impact this transformation can have in the world. Speaking after a three-year teaching hiatus, Eckhart helps us release past conditioning to experience ourselves, our life circumstances, and each other with a renewed perspective and sense of delight.

Here, Eckhart discusses how, through the recognition of our unconscious assumptions and the discovery of the limitless depths of the present moment, we can ultimately find in ourselves what we have been seeking from the external world. We naturally become vessels for the emergence of a deep, “spacious” consciousness that realizes itself through ourselves and those around us.

“The joy of being is derived not from something that happens, or from some object, but from the essence of who you are,” teaches Eckhart. “To know yourself as that is joy.” The Joy of Being points to a revolutionary phase in human development—where thinking is no longer the dominant aspect of our lives, and unconditioned awareness expresses itself through and as each one of us.

Goes much deeper than any other Eckhart Tolle teachings!

I've been reading and listening a lot to Echart Tolle's teachings (youtube, books, etc). And it has helped me deal with a major crisis in my life (illness of my son, that included hospitalization, etc). BUT, this seminar is going far deeper than anything I've heard until now. It is life-changing! For me, at least. And maybe I was just very ready for this... Echart Tolle showed me with humor and compassion, how fighting with what's happening in life is just crazy... It gave to me a lot of power back and wisdom to deal with whatever is happening in my life. I'm now listening to it a second time, and there's more to come!
