“The awakening of human consciousness is no longer a luxury—it is a necessity for the survival of our species. It is up to each of us as individuals to embody the state of aware presence and thus rise above the egoic mind and its dysfunction.
When a sufficient number of humans undergo this transformation, this will bring healing and sanity to our planet.”
The Eckhart Tolle Foundation is dedicated to accelerating the awakening of human consciousness to create a more peaceful and harmonious world.
The foundation focuses primarily on awakening human consciousness, as well as alleviating – and ultimately ending – the suffering created by the dysfunction of the egoic human mind. We accomplish this through making Eckhart Tolle’s teachings available to communities in need, and by funding and collaborating with like-minded organizations, especially those who work with youth and students, prisoners, hospice patients and the elderly, animals, and other vulnerable beings.
We unite with communities and organizations dedicated to inspiring spiritual transformation. Our network currently serves youth, students and educators, assisted living residents and hospice patients, prison inmates and parolees, health care workers and veterans, and support for mental health and recovery.
We welcome exploring new connections.
Our programs deliver Eckhart’s life-changing teachings through digital media, subscriptions, and books—such as The Power of Now and A New Earth—as well as the 8-week online training course The Power of Presence.
We award scholarships to attend live events, including Eckhart Tolle Foundation conferences, Eckhart’s talks, Presence Through Movement workshops with Kim Eng, and multi-day retreats hosted by Eckhart and Kim.
“The wisdom that the Foundation provides saves lives. It is this wisdom that can help solve for mental health issues in our society today.”
“The Eckhart Tolle Foundation has brought a lot of light to my life and to the lives of the children and families we support.”
“I first discovered your writings when I was in Marin County Jail, California […] Your books were very meaningful and helpful to me in understanding myself and others more deeply.”
“Thank you for enlightening our generation.”
Eckhart Tolle is widely recognized as one of the most inspiring and visonary spiritual teachers in the world today. With his international bestsellers, The Power of Now and A New Earth—translated into 52 languages—he has introduced millions to the joy and freedom of living life in the present moment. His teachings focus on the significance and power of Presence, the awakening state of consciousness, which transcends ego and discursive thinking. Eckhart sees this awakening as the essential next step in human evolution. The New York Times has described him as “the most popular spiritual author in the United States,” and in 2011, Watkins Review named him “the most spiritually influential person in the world.”
