From Publishers Weekly
This is a concise but intensive recorded excerpt from a 2002 seminar by the noted spiritual teacher and author of The Power of Now. Tolle, born in Germany and educated at the universities of London and Cambridge, weaves together familiar threads from both Western and Eastern faith traditions into an eclectic tapestry of insights concerning human nature. Tolle guides his audience to carve out new "space," a heightened awareness of the present moment made possible by moving beyond our conditioned thought patterns. The "little me," according to Tolle, represents the sum of our shortsighted perceptions, which left unchecked add up to an all-consuming personal story of pain and conflict that makes embracing the here and now impossible. Tolle deliberately—and effectively—leaves significant pauses between sentences and even individual words. He utilizes these moments of silence to model his approaches for the audience, given that many in contemporary information-age society may have few concrete examples for peaceful reflection in their daily lives. While Tolle holds built-in appeal to New Age spirituality enthusiasts, listeners steeped in the self-help and personal growth genres may also experience enlightenment. (Oct.)

It is recorded live (relax, it was done professionally) and the content is excellent. It's a great program, but I imagine if you have read The Power of Now, you know that and don't need me to explain any further, if you haven't, do yourself a favor and start there.
I don't think enough can be said about Ekhart's work. Whether he puts his own "style" of humor to his teachings or it's done in a more serious manner. This is a Spiritual Teacher of OUR times! As far as I see "re-packaging" (as I've heard some comment on) is a Good thing When it's of this caliber! He himself talks about this. The Messages are simple but bare repeating, resonating with each person differently--hence the "re-packaging". Retreats, seminars, readings, "Stories", humor--He's reaching out to try to touch You!! Capture attention!! His Impeckable choice of words/phrases that I could so easily make my mantra for a better Life. I own Almost his Total collection & find that Each one holds something special for me.
