Full Description

An In-Depth Audio Program on Staying Conscious in an Unconscious World

How can we live mindfully in a culture that constantly demands our energy and attention? According to Eckhart Tolle, this is the task of a lifetime—but it’s also one that you can begin in any moment.

Recorded before a live audience in London, The Next Step in Human Evolution presents a warm, funny, and insightful evening with Eckhart and his teaching partner, Kim Eng. Just as the London Underground famously asks visitors to “mind the gap,” Eckhart reminds you to cultivate awareness of the gaps in your daily life—whether it’s in moments of necessary waiting or the space between thoughts. Through this awareness of the liminal spaces of life, you can come into a richer appreciation of the eternal Now. As Eckhart says, “When you are present in this moment, you break the continuity of your story, of your sense of past and future. Then, true intelligence arises—and also love.”

Here, you will discover:

  • Why most people are completely identified with the thoughts and emotions of object consciousness
  • An exploration of the concept of “space” and its relationship with manifestation
  • Why transcendent consciousness cannot be defined through mere language
  • The liberating sense of interconnection available through nonconceptual perception
  • A 30-minute guided meditation sequence designed to probe the inner body and the “Deep I” beyond ego
  • Why moments of dissatisfaction or annoyance are potent gateways to Presence
  • How to discern the ways egoic thinking filters your perception of the present moment
  • On-the-spot practices for sidestepping knee-jerk reactions and rising above egoic thought
With all this in mind, Eckhart presents a hopeful view of the trajectory of human evolution—a gradual awakening to the truth of our innate interconnectedness. With The Next Step in Human Evolution, you’ll discover that when you lean into the wisdom of the gaps, your horizons open and become boundless.

Kim Eng

About Kim Eng

Kim Eng is a spiritual teacher and the creator of Presence Through Movement, a powerful practice for awakening consciousness through the body and through movement. As facilitator of Presence Through Movement sessions, Kim leads retreats and workshops internationally in partnership with Eckhart Tolle, the author of the bestselling books The Power of Now and A New Earth. By incorporating Eckhart’s teachings into an embodied practice, Kim enables a deepening of conscious awareness in our physical form. 

Kim has taught throughout the Americas, Middle East, Europe, Asia, and Australia, as well as through extensive online courses, including the breakthrough four-week immersion Awakening Through the Pain-Body. She is also the creator of the instructional Presence Through Movement videos Qi Flow Yoga and Yin Yoga and the guided audio programs Meditations for a New Earth and Resist Nothing, featuring practices for addressing inner challenges to living a life of Presence.

Kim sees our true nature—our essence—as living in and through our human bodies. Through movement and through our bodies, we can return to and awaken pure Presence and oneness—to who we are beyond the thinking mind and egoic sense of self—accessing infinite power and creativity.

“When we are connected to Source and body-mind-spirit are aligned—when we realize who we are at the core of our Being—we blossom into our life purpose,” she says. “We cannot help but do so. And that is how we create what Eckhart Tolle calls ‘a New Earth.’”

"Kim brings a down-to-earth approach to spirituality which I find very refreshing. In her counseling work with individuals as well as groups, she beautifully sustains the state of Presence and has a great ability for bringing people back into the present moment, the place where all healing occurs and no problem can survive.” —Eckhart Tolle
