At age 29, Eckhart Tolle experienced a spontaneous spiritual awakening that changed the course of his life and initiated an inner journey toward greater consciousness and harmony. Here, Tolle explains that no matter how undesirable the circumstances, the quickest solution is to go deeply into the now.

Eckhart Tolle graduated from the University of London and was a research scholar and supervisor at Cambridge University. His first book, "The Power of Now," a #1 New York Times best-seller, has been translated into over 30 languages. Other books include "Stillness Speaks" and "A New Earth." For the past 15 years, Tolle has been a counselor and spiritual teacher working with individuals and groups around the world.
