At first when I read this book, I thought Eckhart Tolle was taking a stand against thinking when speaking of stillness, so felt somewhat put off by it. It was only later that I realized that he was talking in great generalities about the specific type or form of thinking related in creating an identity for yourself. I ended up re-listening to the first 2 cds a couple times.

Tolle goes through many traps people create for themselves, including creating a false identity; an expectation of certain

This wonderful book by Eckhart Tolle is a wonderful inspiration to look at Nature and find, within our Heart, the creative Silence that can transform our life. Like other books by this author, it is a wonderful journey into the discovery of the unknown, the freedom of pure Being. Tolle always reminds me of Krishnamurti, yet his writing is even more accessible.

Absolutely a GOODREAD!

This is a recording from a retreat at which Ekhardt Tolle spoke about his spiritual teachings. It is especially useful because one gets to hear him speak in his own voice about the mysteries he addresses in his books, and sometimes, just the way he speaks of them opens the door that was before shut. It is also worth noting that the compassion that typifies his writing is present to a notable degree in his audio presence. Having heard him, one is able to go back to the books with a gentler sense ...more

I reluctantly stepped onto the Eckhart Tolle bandwagon and am reading "A New Earth" but I tried to rip the "Oprah's book club" sticker off the cover. I think Tolle comes across better through listening than through reading for me, so I loved this CD. He has such a great sense of humor and after listening to "Stillness Admist the World" I have added him to my smart spiritual Heros Hall of Fame. My Hall of Fame includes Pope John Paul II, Pope Ben(maybe I now love German accents?), Hugh Prather, L ...more

Eckhart Tolle has a wonderful way of explaining the essence of who we are and the stillness within. He speaks softly and slowly.

This book/dvd set is based on his earlier books, A New Earth and The Power of Now. I think reading either A New Earth or the Power of Now first is better because it gives you the opportunity to reflect on the meaning at your own pace.

Later, listening to this talk is a nice reminder/reinforcement, but there's not a lot of new content in Findhorn. For that reason, I dro

Sample quote: “So, no words can really ever express the exact truth. You have to allow for the fact that language is never quite right and especially is never quite right when you begin to speak of spiritual truths, the formless, because every word is form and ultimately can only function by expressing--reflecting--something in the world of form. And then it becomes difficult when language is used to express something that is beyond form. And that’s why Jesus used parables.”

I was caught off balance back by this audio recording. It was a random download made in a hurry – probably prompted by a youthful fascination of the Findhorn Community. Within the first minute or so, realising what it was, I had a strong urge to switch it off; but having nothing else to listen to on a long walk.... I let it play on. At it's core is a simple concept and technique. I can only do it for 2-3 seconds at a time – but it seems to work for me.

I personally love eckhart! I have gotten some good things listening to him. To each his own, however, I'll take this information...I find it easier to understand than some eastern culture readings...

It is fabulous to see him live. I have never watched him give a talk before and he is surprisingly funny. It's worth watching, but deserves more than one watch to be sure!

This little book is great.
Like a clean out for my head.
I didn't watch the DVDs but the book is very calming, very philosophical, if you like that sort of thing.

Listened to this and found it to be a great addition to understanding Eckhart Tolle. Just need to take time to get through and it is definitely worth the time.

He helps find stillness anywhere because there is already stillness within us.

This was a short read and honestly the only thing wonderful about it was the pictures. I recommend reading his previous books. Either Power of Now or A New Earth.

Well, I saw this and he makes some hilarious faces on it. Too many camera shots of the crowd though.
