Background

About Eckhart Tolle

Spiritual Teacher & #1 New York Times Bestselling Author

Eckhart Tolle is widely recognized as one of the most inspiring and visionary spiritual teachers in the world today. At the age of 29, an intense inner transformation radically changed the course of his life. He devoted the next several years to understanding, integrating, and deepening that transformation. With his international bestsellers, The Power of Now and A New Earth—translated into 52 languages—he has introduced millions to the joy and freedom of living life in the present moment.

His profound yet simple teachings focus on the significance and power of Presence, the awakened state of consciousness that transcends ego and discursive thinking. Eckhart sees this awakening as the essential next step in human evolution. The New York Times has described him as “the most popular spiritual author in the United States,” and Watkins Review has named him “the most spiritually influential person in the world.”

“I keep Eckhart’s book at my bedside. I think it’s essential spiritual teaching. It’s one of the most valuable books I’ve ever read.”

~ Oprah, from oprah.com

“One of the best books to come along in years. Every sentence rings with truth and power the power to bring you into the gap, the space between our thoughts, where we find, as Eckhart so beautifully puts it, deep serenity, stillness, and a sacred Presence. (The Power of Now) is a book to cherish.”

~ Deepak Chopra, Author of The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success
