Eckhart Tolle is also the author of The Power of Now, which was also a New York Times best-selling title. A New Earth, subtitled “Awakening to Your Life’s Purpose,” explores the ways in which our limited, fear-based state of consciousness is resisting our strong spiritual call to use our innate powers to create a more loving, abundant and joyful world. Published in 2006, it was a selection of Oprah’s Book Club, with tens of thousands of people joining in online discussions.
“This is the perfect focus as we move into the blank slate of a new year,” Rev. Townley notes. “Taking its title from the Revelation to John, A New Earth allows us to see the challenges and negative energies of human life today as an essential stage of transformation. It calls us to remain centered and focused as we move through these shadows to the light of new possibility.”
In addition to the Sunday talks, Unity of Greater Hartford is sponsoring a number of small group discussions, meeting weekly in private homes to continue the conversation. Information is available at the group website, www.unityhartford.org, or by calling 860-289-8963.
