Tolle's ideas have origins in many spiritual and philosophical traditions--Buddhism, existentialism, and, from the mental health realm, gestalt therapy. "When you lose touch with yourself, you lose yourself in the world," he states, while offering the state of being still as an ever-available tonic for the distractions from the outside world. Tolle's presentation can be jarring--he frames his prescriptions with moderately long silences between his statements. This intensifies the absorption of the ideas so that we're less likely to gloss over them in the busy stream of our listening habit. A precious recording from an author whose ideas are important for this time in history. T.W.
