The essence of Eckhart Tolle's message is easy to grasp: If we connect to the stillness within, we move beyond our active minds and emotions and discover great depths of lasting peace, contentment, and serenity. With his bestselling first book, The Power of Now, his message has reached millions of people worldwide. Now, in his much anticipated new book, Tolle gives us the essence of his teaching in short, simple pieces that anyone can easily understand. Stillness Speaks is organized into ten chapters whose subjects range from "Beyond the Thinking Mind" to "Suffering and the End of Suffering." Each chapter is a mosaic of individual entries, concise and complete in themselves, but profoundly transformative when read as a whole. Eckhart Tolle understands the spiritual needs of our time. He draws from the essence of all spiritual traditions, expressing these truths in startlingly fresh new ways. The result is a book that is paradoxically both ancient and contemporary, filled with timely and powerful messages. Stillness Speaks can be no less than an awakening for readers willing to give the words a chance to work their quiet magic. Eckhart Tolle is a contemporary spiritual teacher who is not aligned with any particular religion or tradition. In his writing and seminars, he conveys a simple yet profound message with the timeless and uncomplicated clarity of the ancient spiritual masters: There is a way out of suffering and into peace. Eckhart travels extensively, taking his teachings throughout the world. He lives in Vancouver, British Columbia.

Stillness Speaks is a beautifully written book. This book helps to illuminate the simple choice we each have to subtly yet powerfully shift our consciousness & self awareness. If you have ever felt like you are living your life not quiet dialed in fully, as if you were listening to a song on radio station that was just out of range, I would highly recommend this book. Eckhart Tolle's words & insights seem to simply uncover the tools we all possess - to live our truest, static free (if you will) life.
One of his BEST!
Such a simple book. I love listening to it in times of despair, anger, irritability etc, I ALWAYS here what I need to hear (I love the audiobook for that reason). For example, last night as I was listening to it as I fell asleep I heard him talk about “addiction to unhappiness”…. ouch! Yep - I needed to look into that one. A GREAT price for the amount of healing that can occur.
Phenomenal Book & Teaching!!
I CAN NOT recommend this book enough. In fact, please go pick up Eckhart Tolle's first book...'The Power of Now' and his latest 'A New Earth'. I'm not a sales-person nor am I getting anything out of this review. My hope is that those who are reading this review and who are in deep pain & suffering, will find my recommendation helpful and they too can find what I was once lacking. And I found it through Eckhart's teachings. He is not a guru of any sorts, nor is he a cult leader. He is just a simple writer and a teacher who wants to share his peace with the world.
All of his teachings will truly transform your mind as we'll as your life!!
This is not a religious book nor does it force & encourage you to believe in anything. It simply helps you to find peace & relinquish pain.
I had the 'Power of Now' on my book shelve for over 2 years. It was gift from my brother, which I'd put away & didn't have time to read it. My pain was so severe and depression so unbearable that I desperately needed help. I had sought professional help, several months of therapy, and even anti-depressants. And nothing was helping.
Then one day the book found me once again. I didn't have time to read it because I was traveling, so I downloaded the audio. And the new me was born.
I can't thank you enough Eckhart Tolle. :)
