Creating Tolle's "New Earth"


Name Email Phone
Joanne Storlie    608-284-7351

Participants will examine the powerful ideas set forth by Eckhart Tolle in his 2005 best-selling book, A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life’s Purpose, and determine how they apply to their own lives. Tolle—who presents an honest look at the current state of humanity and implores us to see that this state is based on erroneous identification with the Ego and is one of dangerous insanity—suggests that humanity must now “evolve or die.” As we seek to understand the authentic Self that resides in each of us, its relationship to true meaning and purpose in life, and its role in determining the future of humanity, we are gently led from an ego-based existence to a new state of consciousness where the awakened Self progresses toward a more enlightened and fulfilling state of being and lives as a co-creator of “a new Earth.”
