All Eckhart Tolle DVD's CD's and books are fantastic - this DVD set is extra special as it is over 4 hours long and comes with a 64 page book.
With his wonderful blend of humour and simple truths, Eckhart's life transforming words deepen our awareness and anchor us firmly in "The now" - the only place we can ever be.
Stillness, presence, silence, the egoic state, the flowering of human consciousness, combating excessive thinking, forms and the formless, are all covered and much more.
Using brilliantly clear explanations Eckhart leads us from suffering into peace.

Wow! Even better than the book. Only wished I had known that he was at Findhorn in 2004 when this was filmed. Would have been there. This has nothing to do with organised religion but a philosophy which I have followed despite having been brought up as a Catholic. Makes more sense to me and Mr Tolle's eloquence makes it very easy to understand compared with a lot of spiritual writers. I strongly recommend this item and his other books too...POWER OF NOW, STILLNESS SPEAKS ETC.. Watching the DVD'S is a form of meditation in itself and takes you to STILLNESS and inner peace....Wow!!!

I think this DVD & book set is a great gift to yourself and to others. Mr Tolle is a very interesting and lovely person with a great gift, he has that calming effect on your psyche, he has that subtle humor and slow penetrating tale to tell. He tells a universal story, something that goes beyond religion and science. It's a DVD set that you can watch or listen to over and over again and discover something new every time ...
As a scientist I was warned by my physics teacher that 1. you first become a scientist then 2. become a philosopher and at the end you become spiritual (step 3). I managed to put all steps together and Tolle was of great help (together with Barry Long) in my journey.
If you face a crisis in your life or lost something dearly then I would recommend this DVD's to you. If you want to make your life more easy and smooth, watch this .... and enjoy.

I've read The Power of Now and A New Earth and both left me feeling altered in some way - the first was my first contact with Tolle's philosophy - living in the present moment - and I found it hard-going but it has lived with me ever since. A New Earth created a further shift in consciousness for me. Having recently stayed at Findhorn and really appreciated the sacred ambience of the place I was fascinated to see Tolle and Findhorn come together.
On one level I was disappointed - there was little to remind me of Findhorn, and even the photos were supplemented by others from other locations... but hey! Everything he speaks of is about NOT living in the past isn't it?!
I was also mildly disappointed that the DVD was only of Tolle sitting in front of an audience... but I can live with that, because in the end his message is one of perfect simplicity, so why let sophisticated production get in the way? And once again Tolle reaches parts not readily reached with words...
