Eckhart Tolle is a
spiritual teacher and author who gained massive mainstream
appeal as a result of his association with Oprah Winfrey.
We were fans long before his webinars with Oprah, and were very
excited about Oprah bringing his work to the light of the world.
At the age of
twenty-nine a profound inner transformation radically changed
the course of his life, which marked the beginning of an intense
inward journey. He is the author of the 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.
At the core of his
profound yet simple 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.
