Oprah Winfrey has chosen A New Earth by Eckhart Tolle as her latest book club selection. Tolle, whose other books include The Power of Now and Stillness Speaks, was born in Germany and educated at the Universities of London and Cambridge. He now makes his home in Vancouver, British Columbia.
According to his website: "Eckhart’s profound yet simple teachings have already helped countless people throughout the world find inner peace and greater fulfillment in their lives. At the core of the teachings lies the transformation of 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 is a prerequisite not only for personal happiness but also for the ending of violent conflict endemic on our planet."
