On February 4, 2014 we will begin reviewing Eckhart Tolle’s first ground-breaking book “The Power of Now. ” It was first published in 1997 in Vancouver, then republished in the US. Since then it was translated into 33 languages including Arabic. As of 2009, it was estimated that three million copies had been sold in North America alone.
On this day we will review the book's Introduction where Eckhart reveals the origins of his book and then Chapter 1: You Are Not Your Mind. We will be introduced to the concept of enlightenment and its natural enemy, the mind. Behind the disease called thinking and our identification with our thoughts lies the end of our suffering. We will introduce the concept of “watching the thinker” and emotions as the body’s reaction to our mind.
We recommend that you read each Chapter in advance and come prepared to discuss your reflections, opinions and questions. Handouts will be presented and a corresponding audio/video segment will also be likely played and discussed during the meeting.
Please RSVP and join us!
