Stillness Speaks

by Eckhart Tolle


As the foreword of this book says, “In this age when our minds are running to nowhere on treadmills, and getting there fast, Eckhart’s message in Stillness Speaks is loud and clear. Stillness is also an inner peace, and that stillness and peace are the essence of your Being. It is inner stillness that will save and transform the world.”

Stillness Speaks is an absolutely essential book for anyone looking to bring mindfulness, peace, and ultimately a deeper joy and power into their lives. Enjoy!
