Crucial Insights for Meditators of Any Level of Experience

The essence of meditation is not something we do; rather, it is simply to be, fully present and aligned with life in the moment. This is the central teaching of Eckhart Tolle’s What is Meditation? In this illuminating video session, Eckhart helps us transcend our beliefs and ideas about meditation—including the tendency to turn the practice into a means to an end—in order to realize directly our formless nature as being that is primary to any doing.

Inviting us to step back from the personal dimension of a thought-based sense of self concerned solely with “the forms of this world,” Eckhart points us toward the discovery of conscious presence itself—which can only be found when we put aside any resistance to whatever form this moment takes. What Is Meditation? explores how this transformational process unfolds, with practical insights into:

  • What meditation can and cannot do for you
  • Acknowledging the “pulling power” of thoughts
  • Engaging with the reality of consciousness itself
  • Honoring life by saying yes to what is
  • The arising of “space consciousness”—and how this opens us to joy, creativity, and peace

Whether you’ve struggled with meditation or you’re taking an interest in it for the first time, What is Meditation? gives us a new understanding of why we practice—and an inspirational guide for making life itself our daily meditation.
