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.
a great book to read
Just amazing. If you suffer from anxiety, depression or just looking to find better ways of coping with situations then this has to be worth a read! Read it with an open mind - you don't have to be a deeply spiritual or soulful person to get this, but it certainly gets you off to a head start. Like all books, it's not going to be for everyone & the rare person who doesn't rate it should maybe take note of reviews, summary or the general title.....it is about separating your mind from your being & learning to live in the now :)
This book is my bible - you can open it up anywhere and get something from it especially when your life is turbulent or filled with anxiety

Eckhart Tolle makes it sound very easy and describes it all very clearly. Some may say its the only book you need to read regarding meditation!
Thought this book will be very helpful, instead it just tells you zone off from reality and never and i mean never really tells you the solution just tells you to zone off from reality. The author seems like he is a crackhead or psychologically challenged. Weirdo book written by a weirdo. Cant imagine why people give it 5 star ratings. Want to waste money and ur time by all means go for it. This is the worst piece of writing I have read in my entire life.
An amazing book full of keys to living from a perspective of power & rest.
This is a must read book for everyone. It is the inspiration that so many people need in todays fast technological world. If everyone followed the teachings of Eckhart Tolle the world would be a better place.

Deserving of detailed study and slow reading. It goes to the heart of how we can make ourselves so difficult to live with, and a path through mind chatter to everyday presence.
Great book for the spiritually conscious individual seeking more self enlightenment.
