Eckhart Tolle’s A New Earth, discussed weekly on Gather.com

If you are reading this book – and who isn’t lately! and if you aren’t, why not? – you might be interested in joining in the live  and ongoing conversations over at anewearth.gather.com, sponsored by Oprah.com. anewearth.gather.com

Here’s how it works: On Tuesdays, usually at 7pm EDT (check back here for updates!) ,a discussion leader posts some reflection and a question, then everyone who’s “there” comments on that original post. You can look at prior weeks’ discussions and add on as time goes.

Each week is a different chapter, this coming week -April 15th – will be Chapter 7. You can watch the webinar live the night before or download it, usually after noon EDT on Tuesday. These are powerful sessions live with Tolle & Oprah and readers who Skype in or email. One of my favorite parts of these sessions is the silent meditation at the beginning with Eckhart Tolle. Groundbreaking silence in the entertainment industry!

If you’re familiar with Tolle’s prior books, you’ll be pleased with this one. The writing is smoother, the organizaiton is intuitive and progressive, it is clear and a pleasure to read. A New Earth uses ideas and words found not just in his prior work but in philosophies East and West, and creates a powerfully coherent view of the beings we could become.

Come discuss your reactions, experiences, applications, changes, moments and creative response!

ps: I’ll be the discussion leader on April 22nd and 29th, come join me! You can see my reflections on the book at yogaeverday.gather.com – leave an article of your own!

One thought on “Eckhart Tolle’s A New Earth, discussed weekly on Gather.com

  1. I am so greatful to Eckhart Tolle and Oprah for turning me onto Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor and her beautiful book “”My Stroke of Insight””. Her story is amazing and her gift to all of us is a book purchase away I’m happy to say.

    Dr Taylor was a Harvard brain scientist when she had a stroke at age 37. What was amazing was that her left brain was shut down by the stroke – where language and thinking occur – but her right brain was fully functioning. She experienced bliss and nirvana and the way she writes about it (or talks about it in her now famous TED talk) is incredible.

    What I took away from Dr. Taylor’s book above all, and why I recommend it so highly, is that you don’t have to have a stroke or take drugs to find the deep inner peace that she talks about. Her book explains how. “”I want what she’s having””, and thanks to this wonderful book, I can! Thank you Dr. Taylor, and thank you Eckhart and Oprah.
