Publisher's Summary

Fulfillment and Joy Through the Realization of Our Essential Identity
When challenges arise in your life, what happens inside of you? For many of us, the larger the problem, the more we resist, contract, and react unconsciously. On the other hand, explains Eckhart Tolle, in any given moment we have the chance to remain open to life, align with what is, and experience the natural sense of peace and aliveness that he calls "the joy of being".
The Joy of Being is a four-session program that explores the process of awakening to our identity beyond the limits of thought and the impact this transformation can have in the world. Speaking after a three-year teaching hiatus, Eckhart discusses:

Working with whatever conditions arise as your guide for the continuing practice of presence
Using the inner body and sense perception as anchors to the now
Freedom from suffering - the spiritual seeker's best motive
The practice of "being the space" for the situations and circumstances you often find difficult

"The joy of being is derived not from something that happens or from some object but from the essence of who you are," teaches Eckhart. "To know yourself as that is joy." The Joy of Being points to a revolutionary phase in human development where thinking is no longer the dominant aspect of our lives, and unconditioned awareness expresses itself through and as each one of us.

A big fan, just not of this one.

I loved previous paper backs that I read and this was the 1st audio book from him that I listened to. I didn't realise that it wasn't an audiobook but more a recording of him speaking at a retreat.
Still good messages but terrible audio quality and feel a little short changed.

Wonderful, as always.

I own so many of Eckhart's audio recordings and I particularly enjoyed this one. Listening to his wise and calming words every morning on the way to work puts me in a perfect mood to face the rest of the day.
