Oprah Winfrey is delighted to introduce a new weekly podcast series from one of the great spiritual thinkers of our time: Eckhart Tolle. Eckhart’s wisdom will help you learn to quiet your mind, separate your ego from your true self and live a fully present life. Essential Teachings by Eckhart will provide a path to discover an enlightened state of consciousness. Oprah says Eckhart transformed her life and hopes these Essential Teachings will inspire you to seek your own higher purpose.
Accept Each Moment as if You Had Chosen It
Eckhart talks with a live audience about the process of becoming aware. When challenges arise, he says go with it. Learn to accept each moment as if we had chosen it. He explains that if you do this, what at first looks like an obstacle then becomes an opening into transcendence.
Bringing Consciousness to This World
Eckhart talks with a live audience about his belief that we are meant to bring consciousness to this world. To do that, we must keep the pathways clear. We rise above thought, not fall below it, which is what happens when we use substances like alcohol and drugs. Once we become free of that, Eckhart says we realize the essence behind the personality… which is pure presence.
The Next Stage of Human Evolution
Eckhart talks to a live audience. He says most of us are going through a transition in consciousness which he calls awakening. He sees that as the next stage of human evolution. There have been rare periods in history when collective awareness made great leaps forward. Eckhart sees a similar shift happening now. He says we must continue with our practice, release our inner turmoil and align ourselves with the inevitable now.
Awakening Right Where You Are
Eckhart talks with a live audience and urges participants to wake up from the delusion that the things we think will make us happy… won’t. Even if we get everything on our wish-list: wealth, fame, a life of ease, we feel unsatisfied. But Eckhart says the world is not here to make us happy. It’s here to help us evolve. He says whatever our situation is, we can surrender to life’s challenges and awaken right where we are.
Releasing Barriers to Presence
In this podcast, Eckhart talks with a live audience about clearing away the obstacles to presence. Eckhart says the entire universe is awakening and is in the early stages of something vast. We are a part of that. To be spiritually awake, means releasing barriers created by the mind. Eckhart says while the ability to think is a great evolutionary achievement, people have become so enmeshed in thought, they’ve lost touch with their deeper essence and their spiritual legacy.
Presence, Healing and Wholeness
Eckhart answers questions from a live audience including healthcare professionals: doctors, nurses, and therapists. They ask questions about how to deal with the expectations of their patients who yearn for healing and wholeness. He emphasizes the importance of tending to one’s state of consciousness and getting the ego out of the way, so the power of stillness and presence can shine through. He says only then can we truly be of service to others.
In the journey to my awakening, “New Earth” found the path to me and I will never be able to express how thankful I am for that. This podcast with Eckart and Oprah is just so precious as well. Thank you both for the present!
...how many “aha” moments can you have 🤗just amazing both when reading the book and when going through it with Eckhart and Oprah ❤️
I remembered this! It’s from the 2009 global web series! Absolutely love this to bits! Changed alot
This podcasts has totally changed my life and relationship with my family. I am much more aware of being present with them and I don’t feel the need to react all the time and don’t get overwhelmed by the ‘voice in my head’, my ego. Love this and would recommend it to everyone.
