The Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment       A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life's Purpose (Oprah's Book Club, Selection 61)       Practicing the Power of Now: Essential Teachings, Meditations, and Exercises From The Power of Now      Stillness Speaks

World-renowned spiritual teacher Eckhart Tolle conveys simple wisdom that transcends any particular religion, doctrine, or guru. His #1 NYT bestselling book is a modern classic in the field of personal growth and spirituality; Oprah Winfrey credits The Power of Now with helping her to “get through September 11, 2001” and she featured it on her December 2002 “Oprah’s Favorite Things” show.

A native of Germany, Eckhart Tolle attended the University of London, and upon graduation went on to become a research scholar and supervisor at Cambridge University. At 29, a profound spiritual awakening virtually dissolved his personal identity and sparked a radical change in the course of his life.

It marked the beginning of an intense inward journey and he devoted the next decade to understanding, deepening, and integrating that transformation. For the past ten years, he has acted as a counselor and spiritual guide, facilitating sold-out groups in Europe and North America. He lives in Vancouver, British Columbia.
