If you like 'The Power of Now', then I highly recommend the book - Vivation: The Skill of Happiness', which is far more practical and powerful. Eckhart Tolle writes well and truthfully, but in the end he does not provide a viceral, physical, real, practical WAY to do this. I've been in the brain change game for over 20 years, and Vivation is bar none the most powerful of the whole lot. I experience the present moment blissfully and heal old wounds easily and pleasurable with this practical skill. I cannot recommend it enough. The only downside, like any skill, it requires a very good coach and some money to get you up to complete emotional mastery.

It sure is great to have a flexible, exercised mind, non ? It seems like you're learning French almost as fast as a child might.
Of course your neurons were probably more plastic than many,as you were already bilingual Danish-English
1 Feb 2004 @ 22:11 by Jon Husband @18.104.22.168 : Books and a Coach
Flemming, I might recommend "Les elements particulaires", by Michel Hoeullebecq. It caused quite a stir in France about two years ago, and is about our atomized society. Provocative.
Paul - what kind of coach would you recommend using with Vivation ?

Moebius, that's good stuff, and so is Valerian (though it isn't as crazy as good ol' Moebius). I see adan and wosshisorhername on the picture :)
I could recommend loads of'em, I sure miss the Fnac :)
1 Feb 2004 @ 23:56 by Paul Hughes @126.96.36.199 : I'm available.
I may committing a faux pas by plugging myself in this forum, but teaching Vivation is what I do for a living. You're welcome to email or call me if you'd like to know more about it. Or you can google it and get more info.

For me Eckhart Tolle seems just right at this point. He describes things as directly as I could ask for. Whereas many other books present models and techniques and abstractions and persuasion, but avoid the real thing. Maybe because I'm quite kinesthetic it communicates more directly to me, I don't know. But I haven't finished the book, of course.
I have the Vivation book and I've scanned it. Some friends of mine were very into it years ago. It is a development on rebirthing, right? Which I'm sure is a fine thing. But not quite what I need at this point.

I listened to the cd's of Eckhart reading the book. Very powerful voice and I also did a log...hahaha...so did craig
2 Feb 2004 @ 09:38 by ming : CD
Cool, sounds like I ought to get the CD too.
2 Feb 2004 @ 09:54 by martha : well actually
I think it is 7 or 8 cd's hahahaha
3 Feb 2004 @ 13:57 by John Abbe @188.8.131.52 : Synchronicity
Quite bizarre. I'm staying with a friend who's been talking about Tolle, and now both you and Indigo Ocean are writing about it in the same week. I've heard about the book for a while from friends and family, and it has put itself in the 'certain to read eventually' pile (that's different from the 'get around to it someday, no really' pile).
Also, i recommend BookShelved as a place to explore (and record) one's book-reading habits. http://bookshelved.org/cgi-bin/wiki.pl
