business leaders and entrepreneurs Biography - Information

Eckhart Tolle is a bestselling writer and speaker on spirituality and mediation. His workshops, speeches and books have inspired thousands. His most famous works include The Power of Now and A New Earth.

Eckhart Tolle was born in 1948 under the name Ulirich Tolle in Germany. He attended primary schools until the age of 13 when he moved to Spain to live with his father. It was at that time that Tolle ceased to attend formal school and, instead, took courses on his own in order to finish his education and prepare himself for university. When Tolle was in his early twenties he moved to England in order to attend the University of England.

It wasn't until Eckhart Tolle was in his late twenties that he experienced a spiritual enlightenment that changed his life. Having struggled with severe periods of depression, Tolle began focusing on spirituality and changed his name (and complete identity) to Ekhart. It's thought that the name reflects the famed mystic Meister Eckhart from Germany. As a result of his spiritual rebirth, Tolle began writing and penned the bestselling non-fiction book The Power of Now which was dedicated to focusing on the importance of each moment.

Tolle continued to write and began giving speeches and workshops associated with the idea of transcending the material body and ego so that each one of us can attain a greater understanding of ourselves and the universe. His teachings focus on removing oneself from thoughts and egotistical anchors and, instead, focusing on each moment and releasing oneself from thought in exchange for greater appreciation for life.

Eckhart Tolle's writings and seminars also focus on what he calls the "pain-body" which refers to the negative thoughts that radiate from previous experiences and influence our minds and bodies in unproductive ways. Instead, Tolle teaches that we must focus on the present and everything that surrounds us in the now, taking action to alleviate suffering in ourselves in order to create a better world for ourselves and others.

Tolle's work is influenced by a variety of religions and famous spiritualists including Meister Eckhart, Advaita Venanta, mystical Islam, Zen Buddhism, and the Bible. He gives speeches all over the world in English, German and Spanish. Eckhart Tolle lives in Vancouver, Canada.

Eckhart Tolle Quotes Eckhart Tolle Quotes

Internal and external are ultimately one. When you no longer perceive the world as hostile, there is no more fear, and when there is no more fear, you think, speak and act differently. Love and compassion arise, and they affect the world.

Is suffering really necessary? Yes and no. If you had not suffered as you have, there would be no depth to you, no humility, no compassion.
