Knaresborough Stillness

Sally facilitates an Eckhart Tolle Stillness group in north Leeds every week

Sharing stillness and Eckhart's teachings is a very powerful practice, joining with like minded people in presence feels to amplify the experience of being together in the now

Indeed Eckhart Tolle said "... But if you are fortunate enough to find someone who is intensely conscious, if you can be with them and join them in the state of presence, that can be helpful and will accelerate things. In this way your own light will quickly grow stronger. When a log that has only just started to burn is placed next to one that is burning fiercely, and after a while they are separated again, the first log will be burning with much greater intensity. After all it is the same fire ..."

... format for the evening

We begin with a short 10 minute silent meditation to settle in, then watch about an hour of video/DVD of an Eckhart talk or retreat

To be conscious of Being, you need to reclaim consciousness from the mind. This is the most essential task on your spiritual journey
Eckhart Tolle

There is then a longer period of silent meditation (around 30 minutes)

At the end of the evening those who wish to can just take the stillness with them ...... others may choose to stay and chat

Being together in a state of presence is a very powerful practice and it feels right for everyone to choose what feels right for them. It is so different from most social gatherings where people feel they have to "make conversation" ...... this is all about being our true selves without judgement. In fact this offers a unique experience!

time and place

The Group meets every Monday evening from 7.30 pm to 9.30 pm at Friends Meeting House, 136 Street Lane, Roundhay, Leeds LS8 2BW. This is not a 'course' so please feel free to come along any Monday at 7.30 pm!

Presence Through Movement Yin Yoga (DVD)Presence Through Movement Yin Yoga (DVD)  at £15.50 inc post/packing
By Kim Eng 
1 DVD pack, running time 2hrs 22mins 

Meditative Movements and Postures to Cultivate the Energy of 'Allowing'

Most of our lives are directed by the energy of doing, known as yang in the Taoist tradition. To bring life into balance, we need to cultivate its opposite, yin, the energy of 'allowing'. Now Kim Eng offers a powerful program of conscious movement to help us balance these forces and accept each moment just as it is. Join her on Presence Through Movement: Yin Yoga to learn postures and practices that take you into this state of presence

Set in a serene garden, this DVD begins with gentle instruction on a variety of meditative poses including the Long-Legged Butterfly, Sleeping Swan, and Dragon. By inviting us to hold these postures and sink deeply into the inner body, Kim enables us to discover our 'comfortable edge', a process that can release deeply held traumas and bring about true stillness. Complete with both long and short practices inspired by Kim's own awakening process as well as a variety of other traditions, this program helps us 'be the space', by allowing, accepting, and opening to whatever arises

'By learning to move - and hold - our body with intention, we can begin to balance our inner and outer worlds', teaches Kim. Suitable for both beginners and advanced practitioners, Presence Through Movement: Yin Yoga is a portal to the beauty and serenity of the Now

Kim Eng is a counsellor and spiritual teacher whose 'Presence Through Movement' workshops focus on the integration of mind, body, and spirit. As Eckhart Tolle's teaching partner, she has helped translate his ideas into a structured practice. She is the author of Meditations for a New Earth and Presence Through Movement: Qi Flow Yoga

Resist Nothing (CD)Resist Nothing (CD)  at £11.50 inc post/packing
By Kim Eng 
2 CD pack, running time 2hrs 22mins 

Why do our negative experiences seem to stay with us so persistently? It is because they are the fuel for what Eckhart Tolle calls the pain-body, an energetic field that actually feeds on toxic thoughts and emotions. Liberation from the pain-body is not about repressing or denying our thoughts. Instead, as Eckhart's teaching partner Kim Eng reveals, we must develop a complete receptiveness to all experience - rejecting nothing, judging nothing, and resisting nothing

On Resist Nothing, Eckhart and his teaching partner Kim Eng present essential wisdom and practices for dissolving the pain-body. Beginning with a 30 minute exploration by Eckhart into the nature of the pain-body, you will then learn five of Kim's most effective guided meditations and on-the-spot practices for clearing blockages, releasing unhealthy attachments, and becoming fully present in any situation. Join them to learn:

How the pain-body arises, what fuels it, and its role in the process of awakening

Healing at the physical, emotional, and subtle levels-guided meditations from Kim Eng for relieving suffering with spacious awareness

The Pointing Exercise-a key practice for dissolving our identification with the pain-body

Eckhart Tolle and Kim Eng teach that when we view the pain-body as a reminder to become more present, it can become a powerful ally in our awakening. With Resist Nothing, they offer an illuminating and practical program on one of the most important steps we can take on the journey to spiritual awakening

Secret Of Self Realization (CD)Secret Of Self Realization (CD)  at £16.50 inc post/packing
By Eckhart Tolle 
2 CD pack, running time 2hrs 34mins 

When you realize that it's unnecessary to think all the time, something miraculous happens: who you are beyond the self-image in your head begins to emerge. Join Eckhart Tolle in The Secret of Self-Realization for an intensive two-session program pointing us toward the firsthand experience of our essential nature beyond the mind

After years of anxiety and depression, how was it that Eckhart came to suddenly realize a vastness of peace and inner freedom? Through the cessation of the thinking that was creating all of the drama in the first place, Eckhart discovered a sense of identity beyond 'the little me'. The Secret of Self-Realization invites you to transcend the frustration and dissatisfaction of a thought-based life to experience the liberation that unfolds when the dimension of 'being' takes precedence. Explore:

The inner body as the doorway to an 'I' of infinite depth

The Now as a felt reality, not just an abstract concept

Egoic power versus the power of life

Connecting to the source of love and compassion

'Many of us are like transitional beings between two levels of consciousness', explains Eckhart. The Secret of Self-Realization brings you vital teachings to help you meet the world in the awareness that precedes thought, connected to the limitless source of all that is. Tolle gives you the key to realization, the awakening of your spiritual essence. His teaching is a doorway into a new state of consciousness that is inseparable from the eternal present. In clear and concise words, Eckhart explains a simple way of anchoring yourself in the present moment. From there, with tender, yet razor-sharp words, he points to those unconscious patterns that keep you from accessing the deeper intelligence within

The Secret of Self Realization also contains questions and answers relating to:

How to communicate the power of now to children

How to deal with grief and loss

Traumatic events

4 DVD pack, filmed on Location in 2007, running time 10hrs 45mins 

Awakening to One's True Identity

When challenges arise in your life, what happens inside of you? For many of us, the larger the 'problem', the more we resist, contract, and react unconsciously. On the other hand, explains Eckhart Tolle, in any given moment we have the chance to remain open to life, align with what is, and experience the natural sense of peace and aliveness that he calls 'the joy of being'

The Joy of Being is a four-session program that explores the process of awakening to our identity beyond the limits of thought, and the impact this transformation can have in the world. Speaking after a three-year teaching hiatus, Eckhart discusses:

Working with whatever conditions arise as your guide for the continuing practice of presence

Using the inner body and sense perception as anchors to the Now

Freedom from suffering-the spiritual seeker's best motive

The practice of 'being the space' for the situations and circumstances you often find difficult

'The joy of being is derived not from something that happens, or from some object, but from the essence of who you are', teaches Eckhart. 'To know yourself as that is joy'

The Joy of Being points to a revolutionary phase in human development where thinking is no longer the dominant aspect of our lives, and unconditioned awareness expresses itself through and as each one of us
