The Power of Now

The Power of Now

by Eckhart Tolle


After many bouts of serious depression, self-help author Eckhart Tolle found unexpected comfort. One night, while struggling with his thoughts, Tolle realized that what made his life so unbearable was that he was sharing it with another self - the self-generated form of his worries and regrets. Separating from this 'worrier self' was the key to being able to live freely.

Now a world-renowned spiritual teacher, Tolle shares with others the path to mental peace. First published in 1997 and now a New York Times bestseller, The Power of Now teaches the importance of living in the present moment rather than in our own thoughts.
