ð Read ð The Art of Presence by Eckhart Tolle × Once again, as with the previous Eckhart Tolle book I just recently read listened to, it had my attention It is engrossing, hard to explain, simple to understand, yet a lot of information to grasp and figure out It was calming to listen to while I commuted to from work I intend to revisit this book again to take it all in.
This is the first Eckhart Tolle book I was able to listen to, and I very quickly realized that I wanted to hear everything this man had to say The format is that of a recorded retreat rather than an actual writing While speaking to a group, he speaks slowly, and stops frequently to assess his words, and decide what to say next At first, I found this frustratingly slow In a very short time however, I found that I appreciated this pace It allowed me to absorb what he had said and and contemplate it before the next words came This book caused me to find everything else Eckhart Tolle has written, and I m very grateful for all of it.

Listened to this seminar BLUF consciousness without thought via be ing in the now I didn t get it, and it was very poorly dubbed Eckhart is the funniest guy he knows though This release is considerablyaccessible than other live retreat recordings Eckhart s points are impacting, thoughtful and well articulated He pauses less than some engagements, and there are no music interludes a considerable plus I desired to give 5 stars, but did not for three reasons The questions from the audience are a bit lacking at the end of the session, although he turns them insightful regardless Secondly, his take on mental health and treatment borders on discounting medication, which may not bother others but I found detrimental to the content quality Lastly, his two main books are so meaningful to me that I reserved the highest rating just for them This session is, however, my favorite of his live appearances on Audible thus far.
My recommended order of listening for those interested in Tolle is The Power of NowA New EarthThe Art of PresencePracticing the Power of Now for
Very interesting audio book.
The bad audio quality was poor in places and tough to follow at times during my commute.
The good I was surprised at how funny this guy a German actually was It was a lotinteresting than I expected.
Not sure there are many tangible notes I can make but it was a contest and reminder to develop presence and awareness.
One note I did make It will do wonders if the next time someone is shouting at you, instead of shouting back at them you realise they are in pain, show compassion and try to help them.
Tolle runs a quite humoristic workshop, sometimes he s very funny, so much that I stopped in my tracks and started laughing out loud view spoiler little dogs with ego, angry voice asking for meditation hide spoiler
