Eckhart Tolle, renowned for the simple and powerful truths in his bestselling books, The Power of Now and Stillness Speaks, led an extraordinary two-day retreat at Findhorn, Scotland, famous as a magical community on the leading edge of personal and global transformation. When Tolle came to Findhorn, true magic happened, and the whole weekend is captured on audio in Eckhart Tolle’s Findhorn Retreat. The program is carefully edited down to create a deeply moving experience for listeners. Tolle provides simple tools for transformation— the clear guidance needed to deeply realize the magic of every moment. The main topic of Tolle’s talk at the retreat is stillness. He explains how compulsive thoughts become as we analyze, interpret, and label every conscious experience we have. In such a state we can no longer perceive the sacredness in ourselves and in that of the natural world around us. Our experience of life becomes nothing but a never-ending reel of thoughts, opinions, and viewpoints. Tolle’s light-hearted delivery provides sparkling highlights to the jewels of wisdom that he shares with us. When we enter the deeper dimension of stillness that lies dormant in each one of us, we find peace. Stillness reconnects us to the sacredness of life. Tolle says “This is why we’re here— to deepen our awareness of that dimension. If you become truly present, you find the sacred is everywhere.”
Customer ReviewsSee All
I am really glad I bought Findhorn Garden as an audio book. It gave me a much more personal sense of Eckhart Tolle. He's funny. I would never have guessed it from The Power of Now and The New Earth. If I could only afford one it would be The New Earth. That being said, listening to him speak off the cuff instead of reading his own written words was a real treat. If I have a complaint it would be that it was too short and could have included more of his dialogues and Q&A's that happened during the three days of the retreat.
Amazing message, terrible recording
I am a true follower of Eckhart, and I listen to every recording he publishes. This retreat does not fall short in the message, however, the recording is edited almost as if they wanted to delete all of the silent moments Eckhart has on stage. Like Traditional Japanese music, his pauses are as meaningful as his word. Also, there is intermittent music that is sporadic and untimely. I would recommend this recording, but be patient with the spontaneous lapses in sound and sound quality.
The Beauty of Spiritual Truth
A great spiritual teacher doesn't do anything except create a space for the consciousness in others to emerge. This is audio is a perfect example of Tolle doing just that.
