Eckhart’s profound, yet simple teachings have helped countless people around the globe experience a state of vibrantly alive inner peace in their daily lives. Through his words and presence, Eckhart explains and demonstrates the significance and power of awakening consciousness, which transcends ego and discursive thinking, and can be seen as the next step in human evolution. We awaken in the present moment to discover what Eckhart describes as our essential identity—who we are beneath the surface—and its power for transforming our selves and our world.
Eckhart Tolle is a spiritual teacher and author, born in Germany and educated at the Universities of London and Cambridge.
