Oprah and Eckhart Tolle create ‘A New Earth’

Famous American talkshow hostess Oprah and spiritual teacher Eckhart Tolle are currently doing a 10 week course live over the internet. The classes take place every Monday (in South Africa we can see them early on Tuesday morning). A copy of the webcast and a PDF transcript can be downloaded from here. There have been two broadcasts so far (04 March and 11 March), each of which is over a gigabyte in size. The course is based on Eckhart Tolle’s most recent book A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life’s Purpose. His other books include The Power of Now and Stillness Speaks.

We watched a bit of the first lesson tonight. Oprah of course is her usual eloquent self, enjoying the sound of her own voice and persuasively expressing her own opinions. (I confess that I find her a bit annoying sometimes.) Tolle, in contrast, speaks with such calmness and inner peace that it makes one feel quite at peace with oneself.
