NEW EDITION. How to connect with your being and live a healthier and happier life by living in the present moment.

Eckhart Tolle is one of today's most inspiring teachers. In The Power of Now, a word-of-mouth bestselling phenomenon since its first publication, the author describes his transition from despair to self-realisation soon after his twenty-ninth birthday. Tolle took another ten years to understand this transformation, during which time he evolved a philosophy that has parallels in Buddhism, relaxation techniques and meditation theory but is also eminently practical.In The Power of Now he shows readers how to recognise themselves as the creators of their own pain, and how to have a pain-free existence by living fully in the present. Accessing the deepest self, the true self, can be learned, he says, by freeing ourselves from the conflicting, unreasonable demands of the mind and living 'present, fully and intensely, in the Now'.

About The Author

Eckhart Tolle was born in Germany, where he spent the first thirteen years of his life. After graduating from the University of London, he was a research scholar and supervisor at Cambridge University. When he was twenty-nine, a profound spiritual transformation virtually dissolved his old identity and radically changed the course of his life. After spending many years devoted to understanding, integrating and deepening that transformation, he has spent the last ten working as a counsellor and spiritual teacher, working with individuals and small groups in Europe and North America. He has lived in Vancouver, British Columbia, since 1996.

            Comments about The Power of Now:

            A little bit of arrogance is what a felt from this author, though this book is informative and has some wonderful points. It is a little complex and detailed at times, certain ally not a step-by-step procedure of getting into the "Now". The book is basically made up of questions (from readers) then answers from the authors perspective - which I feel is rather accurate and true, if you want to be honest and connect with your inner most truth.
            Overall, I have enjoyed this book and have picked up some great tips.

              Comments about The Power of Now:

              I have been going through a challenging year this year with loss of a family member and health issues. This book has helped keep me stay on track and gave me insights that I needed for this part of my life's journey. It also validated much that I've already learned about spiritual living and life . I've enjoyed it so much that I've sent copies to friends who I thought would appreciate this kind of reading, and because I felt this kind of wisdom needed sharing. Reading this has helped me be more conscious about my inner and outer life. With this book highlighting the need for presence and what that means, this is about the best gift I or anyone could have for personal development and true growth. A book for young and old, but more especially for those seeking a more meaningful, spiritual and conscious way of life.

              Service and delivery comments:

              Delivery was better than expected with my instructions being followed and respected. The packaging is extememely good and protects books well considering their value.

[Oprah] 'Pointing to the portals of the eternal Present, this practical mystic's modern gospel offers transcendent truths that set us free.' [Dan Millman, author of Everyday Enlightenment]
