More About the Author

Eckhart Tolle was born in Germany. When he was 29, a profound spiritual transformation virtually dissolved his old identity and radically changed the course of his life. He is now a counsellor and spiritual teacher, and the author of The Power of Now, Practising the Power of Now and Stillness Speaks. He lives in Vancouver.

Product Description

Amazon Review

Move over James Redfield. Since The Power of Now was published in the US in 1999 (2001 in the UK), Eckhart Tolle has become the exciting new name on the guru scene. Tolle's message is profound, but like many of the best spiritual messages, quite simple: you need to discover your true self. That's not the person who walks and talks, or even the person inside your head who thinks your thoughts. Step back, Tolle says, and observe the process of thinking; the person doing the observing is the real you. And the only moment that is real is Now; the past and future can both drag you down, so live in the current moment. This is the path to Enlightenment or Self-Realisation.

For those who have been deeply impressed by Tolle's first book and are waiting for a follow-up, note that Practising the Power of Now is not a new book; it is a collection of extracts from the original book--the edited highlights--and short spiritual exercises. Apparently, it is designed primarily for those who already have the original book, but want a slim and concise volume they can carry around and dip into--the meat without the veg, so to speak.

In comparison with the original book, Practising the Power of Now does seem a little scrappy. It's full of profound messages, but the well-argued connecting material is missing. For those who haven't read either, the original The Power of Now is certainly better value for money--twice the length at the same price. But for fans, for those who prefer bite-sized spiritual truths, or as a gift to either of these, Practising the Power of Now contains all of Tolle's teaching in an easily accessible format. --David V Barrett --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Review

THE POWER OF NOW can transform your thinking. The result? More joy, right now. (Oprah Winfrey)

This book is generating quite a buzz of excitement. It is quite simply one of the clearest and most accessible texts on becoming more present that we have seen. (Kindred Spirit)

The must-read bible du jour (Red Magazine)

This practical mystic's modern gospel offers transcendent truths that set us free (Dan Millman) --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Psychotherapy 3 Jun 2009
Format:Paperback
This book is essential for anybody who feel that the original "The power of NOW" was too deep. It could be said that it is the perfect introduction to the magic of meditation, mental awareness, and self instructed psychotherapy. The book goes through the main themes of "The Power of NOW" without getting too deep, but into enough detail for the reader to have an understanding of how we are not our thought processes, which are a creation of a lifelong programming, resulting in what is called The Ego. After every paragraph the book indicates simple and practical mental exercises that will easily help you to regain control of your mind (subsequently your life) against the control of The Ego.

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful book 7 Dec 2005
By A Customer
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a wonderful book - I continue to read a page or so each morning (now read 10 times!) and it really changes one's consciousness for the day. It is a simpllified exposition of his 'The Power of Now' (read this too) and brings together so many of the ideas of Zen, Christianity and other beliefs into something that is incredibly practical and empowering. It's brilliant.

5.0 out of 5 stars Practicing the Power of Now 26 Jun 2008
By Tami Brady TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
Practicing the Power of Now is a handy companion to Eckhart's wildly popular The Power of Now. Essentially, Practicing the Power of Now contains the same information as in the first book. However, I have to say that I prefer this format. The first book was written in a question answer format. These questions came from the author's students. He also included amalgamated questions that covered a variety of common queries. These question and answer sessions gradually took the reader from common perception through to an understanding of the illusions that we generally accept as real and the importance of the present moment.

Practicing the Power of Now is written in formalized chapters summarizing much of the material written that first book such as being and enlightenment; the origin of fear, entering the now, dissolving consciousness, etc. The best quotations, mediations, and exercises first previously presented are also included.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easily accessible transformative power! 13 Sep 2007
By N Lyle
Format:Paperback
This book is a stripped down version of The Power of Now, in more manageable chunks, if you like. It's easy to pick up if you have a spare moment. I would recommend buying this with The Power of Now as they compliment each other perfectly.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Only Way 26 Feb 2010
Format:Paperback
I have been a very firm belever in Eckhart Tolle for many years. This book held no new surprises for me, what i wanted was a concise version of the very popular "The Power of Now". Having 5 of ET's books i find this for me is the quickest way of reminding me of what i need to do to bring me into the present moment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Practising power of now - Tolle 22 Jan 2012
Format:Paperback
I bought this book because I already have 'The power of now' and I can strongly recommend both of them ('Practising' is maybe better to start with as you will feel the change quite quickly.) Next add 'The power of now' (theory/background) to get the complete (better) understanding of what is going on. I know, it sound weird, but it WORKS!
