A Course in Miracles was designed as a 365-day program for spiritual awakening. This month, Eckhart, who has used this resource in his own teaching for years, invites us to see if we can get to the essence of the Course in one 90-minute session. In addition, he teaches about Zen and shares an awareness practice to help us relate to others through presence rather than judgment.
Also this month, Kim Eng leads a qigong exercise for cultivating awareness of our life energy and Eckhart answers the following questions from the members of Eckhart Tolle TV:
1. In the face of false accusation, how might a conscious person respond in comparison to an egoic response?
2. Does the ego strengthen itself with more consciousness?
3. Is awakening a gradual process or is there also the possibility of a sudden, spontaneous shift?
4. What is the appropriate response when someone says something rude or meant to hurt?
Eckhart Tolle Spiritual Teacher and Author was born in Germany and educated at the Universities of London and Cambridge. At the age of twenty-nine a profound inner transformation radically changed the course of his life. The next few years were devoted to understanding, integrating and deepening that transformation, which marked the beginning of an intense inward journey. Later, he began to work in London with individuals and small groups as a counselor and spiritual teacher. Since 1995 he has lived in Vancouver, Canada.
Eckhart Tolle is the author of the #1 New York Times bestseller The Power of Now (translated into 33 languages) and the highly acclaimed follow-up A New Earth, which are widely regarded as two of the most influential spiritual books of our time.
Eckhart’s profound yet simple teachings have already helped countless people throughout the world find inner peace and greater fulfillment in their lives. At the core of the teachings lies the transformation of consciousness, a spiritual awakening that he sees as the next step in human evolution. An essential aspect of this awakening consists in transcending our ego-based state of consciousness. This is a prerequisite not only for personal happiness but also for the ending of violent conflict endemic on our planet.
Kim Eng also leads us in a simple qigong practice for cultivating an awareness of our life force energy and allowing it to express itself spontaneously through our lives...
