"All the things that truly matter - beauty, love, creativity, joy, inner peace - arise from beyond the mind". - Eckhart Tolle
People from all over the world will come together at Oslofjord Convention Center in a beautiful retreat environment just by the fjord close to Oslo, Norway.
This is the second retreat with Eckhart and Kim at this great location and a special opportunity to delve into the present moment and experience the spacious stillness within – awakening to the timeless dimension of life. A time to pause and experience the transformative power of Eckhart Tolle’s and his partner Kim Eng’s teachings and presence, and to connect with fellow travelers on the spiritual path for a unique and uplifting experience.
Eckhart and Kim will offer daily teachings, question-and-answer sessions, guided meditations, movement practices and periods of silence to guide us more deeply into the present moment and help us understand and experience what it means to live an awakened life.
Eckhart Tolle is widely recognized as one of the most original and inspiring spiritual teachers of our time. His bestselling books The Power of Now, Practicing The Power of Now, Stillness Speaks and A New Earth have inspired innumerable people around the world, and are already considered to be classics of spiritual literature. Eckhart is not aligned with any particular religion or tradition, but excludes none. At the core of his teachings lies the transformation of the individual and collective human consciousness, a spiritual awakening that he sees as the next step in human evolution. An essential aspect of this awakening consists in transcending our ego-based state of consciousness. This, according to Eckhart Tolle, is a prerequisite not only for personal happiness, but also for the ending of violent conflict endemic on our planet. As Eckhart Tolle says: “How ‘spiritual’ you are has nothing to do with what you believe but everything to do with your state of consciousness”. Many people have found that when they read or listen to Eckhart’s words, their lives are deeply affected.
Kim Eng is Eckhart’s partner and associate. She will hold her Presence Through Movement teaching sessions involving meditation and movement (incorporating yin-yoga, qi gong and t’ai chi) as well as 2 talks. The exercises and movements are gentle, enjoyable and suitable for most people, regardless of age and physical fitness. The sessions’ aim is the transformation of consciousness through the integration of mind, body and spirit. Kim is a gifted and inspired teacher with her own distinctive mode of teaching.
Everyone will be able to listen to Kim's talks and guided meditations in the main hall. However, due to limited space for her Presence Through Movement (PTM) sessions not everyone will be able to participate in these. It will be on a first come, first serve basis. We therefore encourage those interested to sign up as early as possible, and there will be a small extra charge for a PTM session (only one session per person).
