A two-day retreat at Findhorn, Scotland - famous as a spiritual centre on the leading edge of personal and global transformation - offered an ideal showcase for Eckhart Tolle's transformative concepts, documented in this exciting package containing a book and two DVDs that capture the author at his best. Using his trademark lighthearted but penetrating style, Tolle explores in depth the concept of stillness and how to achieve it. Only by doing so, says the author, can transformation occur. Stillness offers a doorway into the Now and to true personal enlightenment, according to Tolle. Too often, people become trapped in their mind-created sense of self. He explains the compulsions that drive people's thoughts as they analyse, interpret and label every conscious experience they have. The result? An inability to perceive the sacredness in oneself and in the natural world. Eckhart Tolle's "Findhorn Retreat" offers serene sanity in a world in desperate need of it.
Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende
Spiritual teacher and author Eckhart Tolle 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 includes 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" entitled "Practicing the Power of Now" is also available. For more information on Eckhart Tolle, please visit eckharttolle.com.

Zwei wunderbare DVDs, man fühlt sich hineinversetzt in den Saal Findhorns, in dem Tolle auf tolle Weise die Essenz des Lebens und des Seins vermittelt. Es macht dies in seiner unnachahmlichen Art. Schlicht kraftvoll, ganz im Jetzt verankert. Zart und zugleich packend. Mit einem befreienden Humor, der der menschlichen Tragik des Seins eine Leichtigkeit zurückschenkt. Er gehört zu den ganz grossen Lehrern unserer Zeit.
Das spirituelle Zentrum Findhorn im Nordosten Schottlands hat einen legendären Namen und Ruf. Ich war zwar noch nie dort, doch in letzter Zeit häufen sich die Zufälle, die mich darauf aufmerksam machen, so auch diese DVD. Schön, dass sie kurz auch auf den Ort eingeht, und so erhält die Begegnung mit Tolle ihren gebührenden Rahmen und eine besondere Note. Verstärkt wird diese durch das wunderbare Vogel-Gezwitscher aus der umgebenden Natur, welches Tolle die ganze Zeit über begleitet.
really worth listening to and making it part of the way you live - NOW

If you are reading this you probably already are, like myself, a huge Eckhart fan. You will not be disappointed with these DVDs. I own practically everthing Eckhart has put out, and once again he does an amazing job. In addition to his "normal" talk about stillness and being present because that's all there is, he is really very funny and entertaining on these DVDs. Also, the picture and sound quality is quite good.
Tip: I purchased my copy of Findhorn Retreat directly from Eckhart's website because they include a FREE DVD with a 1 hour interview of Eckhart. I've always been curious about Eckhart as a person and this interviewer asks him many of the "personal" questions about his background, about growing up as a child, about the difference in his life now that he makes a lot of money (funny enough, he says he rarely buys things, that it's enough to just "look at them" and so the money hasn't made much of a change in his life at all!). Obviously he doesn't talk about these things during his usual presentations, so I found them very interesting to hear how he handles "fame and success".
I can't tell you how great this DVD is (it's called "The Simple Truth" and is only available from Eckharts site, but again, amazingly, they throw it in Free when you purchase the Findhorn DVDs and book!)
Hope this feedback helps!
Author, Success Secrets of the Motivational Superstars
Those phenomenon allowed me to quiet my mind, live in the present and do things I imagined I could do, but could not have done otherwise. I got into and graduated from medical school (I am from a blue collar family), while going through a divorce. They put me into a place where I was able to woo and marry a special woman. Then I fell deeply into form, materialism, egoism while anguishing about the past as I awaited the future rewards I felt I richly deserved. Over these last 25 years my life completely unravelled. I became a bitter, angry, pain-ridden shell. Big house, fancy cars, world travel and a quickening descent into hell. (I even got a law degree. Maybe I could defend my-self). Nothing worked.
Until Eckhart emerged from obscurity (part of his story) into my story. Suddenly senselessness made sense. The past and the future began to shrink into, simply, now. Now I am so alive, full of joy, without being full of me. I work in a maximum security prison as a psychiatrist, the only death chamber in Florida is 200 yards from my office. The staff, the prisoners, the outside visitors see this place as a place of sadness and despair. Thanks to the universal channel that Eckhart has tuned me into, there is a little smile on my face every moment I am there. Amazingly, everyone around has begun to smile, every now and then. Not because of the little me, but because of what is flowing through me. What is flowing through me? The beauty and goodness and love that exists inside of them. They don't know that is where my smile is coming from. I hope and pray they discover that.
Thank you Eckhart for suffering so much, so you could bring me into the present, into the now, to feel the stillness in the midst of chaos.
Just so you know, this is not published by Sounds True like all the rest and the format is a little different... a man introduces him and there is no tracklisting whatsoever.
And lastly, for four discs at about an hour each, this is the best deal you could possibly find (thanks amazon!)... skip "realizing the power of now" and get this.
He brings humor to identification allowing oneself to see the ridiculousness of believing oneself to be anything other than who we truly are.
I also enjoy listening to Gangaji and Eli Jaxon-Bear, as they, and Eckhart, have found a true way of pointing others back to who they really are.
If you listen to this CD series and pass it off as another teaching or 'that is too simple to be it', than you've missed the opportunity this CD has to offer and should question your own willingness in stopping rather than whether the author is 'doing it right or not'. Everything is a reflection of one's self. The entire world supports your awakening. Listen deeply to what Eckhart points to and you will immediately receive the nectar of Life that is always here.
