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.

Industry Reviews

'It's a reminder to be truly present in our own lives and liberated from our past and future. It can transform your thinking. The result? More joy, right now.'

'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

This book will live on your shelf for ever


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 :)



My favourite book. This was gift. Mine is by my bed.


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

Clear the clutter in your mind


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.

The Bible of Presence...


An amazing book full of keys to living from a perspective of power & rest.



A Must Read Book by Everyone


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.

Cabarita Beach NSW


Contains a lot of very fundamental wisdom


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.

Eckhart Tolle

About the Author

Eckhart Tolle Spiritual Teacher and Author was born in Germany and educated at the Universities of London and Cambridge. At the age of twenty-nine a profound inner transformation radically changed the course of his life. The next few years were devoted to understanding, integrating and deepening that transformation, which marked the beginning of an intense inward journey. Later, he began to work in London with individuals and small groups as a counselor and spiritual teacher. Since 1995 he has lived in Vancouver, Canada.

Eckhart Tolle is the author of the #1 New York Times bestseller The Power of Now (translated into 33 languages) and the highly acclaimed follow-up A New Earth, which are widely regarded as two of the most influential spiritual books of our time.

Eckhart’s profound yet simple teachings have already helped countless people throughout the world find inner peace and greater fulfillment in their lives. At the core of the teachings lies the transformation of consciousness, a spiritual awakening that he sees as the next step in human evolution. An essential aspect of this awakening consists in transcending our ego-based state of consciousness. This is a prerequisite not only for personal happiness but also for the ending of violent conflict endemic on our planet.

Eckhart is a sought-after public speaker and teaches and travels extensively throughout the world. Many of his talks, intensives and retreats are published on CD and DVD. Most of the teachings are given in English, but occasionally Eckhart also gives talks in German and Spanish. In addition to The Power of Now and A New Earth, Eckhart has written a book designed for meditative reading entitled Stillness Speaks. A book consisting of selections from The Power of Now is also available, entitled Practicing the Power of Now.
