Ultimately, every spiritual practice points to one thing: surrendering to this moment as it is. But what if we feel resistance to what is occurring? Eckhart Tolle, author of “The Power of Now,” talks about making the shift from no to yes.

At age 29, Eckhart Tolle experienced a spiritual awakening that changed the course of his life and initiated an inner journey toward greater consciousness and harmony. His first book, “The Power of Now,” a New York Times best-seller, has been translated into over 30 languages. Other books include “Stillness Speaks” and “A New Earth.”  A former research scholar at Cambridge University, Tolle has for the past 15 years been a counselor and spiritual teacher working with individuals and groups around the world.
