Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In Stillness Speaks, best-selling author Eckhart Tolle illuminates the fundamental elements of his teaching, addressing the needs of the modern seeker by drawing from all spiritual traditions. At the core of the book is what the author calls "the state of presence," a living in the "now" that is both intensely inspirational and practical. When the pressures of future and past thinking disappear, fear and frustration also vanish, conquered by the moment. Stillness Speaks takes the form of 200 individual entries, organized into 10 topic clusters that range from "Beyond the Thinking Mind" to "Suffering and the End of Suffering." The entries are concise and complete in themselves, but, read together, take on a transformative power.

Review:

"Beautiful stand-alone paragraphs offer insight into the defensive nature of the ego versus what he sees as our true being, the attentive, receptive mind behind thought....No one will doubt that Tolle has freed himself from nagging thoughts and fears. But the rest of us?" Publishers Weekly

Review:

"Though short, the book packs considerable wisdom in its observations....Motivated, future-thinking readers looking for a challenge will love it; those seeking bang will be bored and frustrated." Library Journal

About the Author

Eckhart Tolle graduated from the University of London and was a research scholar and supervisor at Cambridge University. At age 29, a spiritual transformation changed the course of this life. The next few years were devoted to understanding, integrating, and deepening that transformation, which marked the beginning of an intense inward journey. For the past 10 years, he has been a counselor and spiritual teacher working with individual and small groups in Europe and North America.

Eckhart Tolle is the author of the much acclaimed The Power of Now.
