Eckhart Tolle: How To Help Children Live In The Present


Eckhart Tolle, once called the “most influential spiritual author in the [United States,” is perhaps the world’s foremost authority on living mindfully. In this video, he talks about teaching children the art of living in the present. When kids are full of scattered energy, he says, one must respond with gentleness and acceptance. “You give him or her space to be. You allow this person to be and you listen.. Not wanting to change anybody,” says Tolle whose “The Power Of Now” was a New York Times bestseller.

Tolle also talks about his concept of “pain bodies” — the knots of negative emotions that most of us carry deep within us. “Pain bodies,” he says, “are fields of contractions, aliveness, energy, contracted and tight, with a life of their own.”
