Eckhart Tolle's Findhorn Retreat: Stillness Amidst the World Reviews

    Finding peace and stillness in a busy, noisy world can be somewhat challenging but there are strategies to help you achieve inner peace. I'll need to listen to this more than once, there were many concepts that need further pursuit for me to grasp. Tolle's easy conversational style of speaking is soothing in itself so it really helps more to listen to this instead of reading it (for me). If you are feeling overwhelmed and stressed, give this one a try. I found many beautiful things to think about and want to look into more meditation in my daily life.

    Once again I read this wonderful, inspiring book. It helps one to feel one's Soul and find in its Silence all the precious richness of the Spirit... It also has beautiful Nature pictures taken by Tolle himself...Maria Carmo, Lisbon, 30 December 2016. This wonderful book by Eckhart Tolle is a wonderful inspiration to look at Nature and find, within our Heart, the creative Silence that can transform our life. Like other books by this author, it is a wonderful journey into the discovery of the unknown, the freedom of pure Being. Tolle always reminds me of Krishnamurti, yet his writing is even more accessible.Absolutely a GOODREAD!Maria Carmo,Lisboa 5th. March 2012Este maravilhoso livro de Eckhart Tolle constitui uma excelente inspiração para olharmos para a Natureza e encontrarmos nela, e no nosso Coração, o Silêncio criativo que pode transformar a nossa vida. Como outros livros deste autor, é uma jornada maravilhosa à descoberta do desconhecido, da liberdade do puro SER. Tolle recorda-me sempre Krishnamurti mas numa linguagem ainda mais acessível.Absolutamente a ler!Maria Carmo

    At first when I read this book, I thought Eckhart Tolle was taking a stand against thinking when speaking of stillness, so felt somewhat put off by it. It was only later that I realized that he was talking in great generalities about the specific type or form of thinking related in creating an identity for yourself. I ended up re-listening to the first 2 cds a couple times. Tolle goes through many traps people create for themselves, including creating a false identity; an expectation of certain things to happen, eg, "This is not how it should be," thus creating a sense of victimhood. In a society, where it seems more people want to feel 'victimized' in order to justify their sense of self and how things should be, this book was quite refreshing.In terms of personally relating to it, there is definitely a place and time for this type of philosophy. For example, if someone at work wasn't getting their job done, then I wouldn't say, 'oh well, this is just how it is.' However, I have noticed the occasional time when I am frustrated at something I probably shouldn't be frustrated at. Hopefully reading this book will help calm those feelings.

    This is a recording from a retreat at which Ekhardt Tolle spoke about his spiritual teachings. It is especially useful because one gets to hear him speak in his own voice about the mysteries he addresses in his books, and sometimes, just the way he speaks of them opens the door that was before shut. It is also worth noting that the compassion that typifies his writing is present to a notable degree in his audio presence. Having heard him, one is able to go back to the books with a gentler sense of dedication rather than a sterner. This is a transformation one is seeking, not a harsh practice one is pursuing.

    I reluctantly stepped onto the Eckhart Tolle bandwagon and am reading "A New Earth" but I tried to rip the "Oprah's book club" sticker off the cover. I think Tolle comes across better through listening than through reading for me, so I loved this CD. He has such a great sense of humor and after listening to "Stillness Admist the World" I have added him to my smart spiritual Heros Hall of Fame. My Hall of Fame includes Pope John Paul II, Pope Ben(maybe I now love German accents?), Hugh Prather, Le Dalai Lama, Rabbi Harold Kushner, Gary Zukov, Dr. Drew Pinsky and of course the Virgin Mary.

    Eckhart Tolle has a wonderful way of explaining the essence of who we are and the stillness within. He speaks softly and slowly. This book/dvd set is based on his earlier books, A New Earth and The Power of Now. I think reading either A New Earth or the Power of Now first is better because it gives you the opportunity to reflect on the meaning at your own pace. Later, listening to this talk is a nice reminder/reinforcement, but there's not a lot of new content in Findhorn. For that reason, I dropped my rating down a notch.

    Sample quote: “So, no words can really ever express the exact truth. You have to allow for the fact that language is never quite right and especially is never quite right when you begin to speak of spiritual truths, the formless, because every word is form and ultimately can only function by expressing--reflecting--something in the world of form. And then it becomes difficult when language is used to express something that is beyond form. And that’s why Jesus used parables.”

    I was caught off balance back by this audio recording. It was a random download made in a hurry – probably prompted by a youthful fascination of the Findhorn Community. Within the first minute or so, realising what it was, I had a strong urge to switch it off; but having nothing else to listen to on a long walk.... I let it play on. At it's core is a simple concept and technique. I can only do it for 2-3 seconds at a time – but it seems to work for me.

    He helps find stillness anywhere because there is already stillness within us.

    I personally love eckhart! I have gotten some good things listening to him. To each his own, however, I'll take this information...I find it easier to understand than some eastern culture readings...

    It is fabulous to see him live. I have never watched him give a talk before and he is surprisingly funny. It's worth watching, but deserves more than one watch to be sure!

    This little book is great.Like a clean out for my head.I didn't watch the DVDs but the book is very calming, very philosophical, if you like that sort of thing.

    The value here is in the two dvds (each nearly two hours in length) that accompany the book. While the book is pretty and contains some lines and images that may work for some, I drift off or think "I've got that, move on" and so miss the deeper connections available. I know some folks find his accent and style uncomfortable, I enjoy it so for me the dvds are a source of great guidance and explanation. I also find that I am learning to understand more of what is going on for him in the pauses and silences in between stories. Although this book/dvd doesn't suggest that you need to have read any of his books - the people attending the retreat are clearly engaged with the spiritual question - so of course that is the audience for these talks. On the other hand, the beauty of Tolle's presentations are always that they're completely accessible. They aren't about thinking or concepts or ideas. That can be challenging because we're habituated to structuring our world and experience with these forms but the dialogue eases you through that. If you're seeking or on the path, I recommend tasting the work of Tolle. I have found it to be sweet and nurturing.There's a lot available for free on YouTube so you can test your resilience to the accent and dad jokes before committing to nearly four hours of it here.

    This was a short read and honestly the only thing wonderful about it was the pictures. I recommend reading his previous books. Either Power of Now or A New Earth.

    Audio of a retreat held by Eckhart Tolle. Great information but I've found that I like edited books or audio books rather than recordings of talks or retreats.
