The inspiration for Doorways into Presence

For years, students and followers of Eckhart Tolle have been asking for practices—for everyday skills and approaches to consistently apply his teachings. In response to this popular demand, Eckhart has created the truly unique program that is Doorways into Presence.

In his signature style, Eckhart flips the concept of spiritual practice from something you do outside of your ordinary routines into a lived experience that informs all that you’re already doing.

With Doorways into Presence, you’ll discover a deeper sense of who you are, a greater purpose to your life, and a vaster appreciation of the mystery and miracle of our human incarnation.

A personal

A personal invitation from ECKHART TOLLE

What we call “Presence” is the core of my teaching. Whenever I give talks, the words are meant to point to Presence—or to pure awareness. When you are present, you no longer derive your identity from the stream of thoughts in your head. Rather, you know yourself as the awareness in which all thoughts (and all things, for that matter) arise. This transition from being mind-identified to living in Presence is the most important thing in your life. That really is the main purpose of your life, apart from any other personal purpose that you may have.

“The transition from being mind-identified to living in Presence is the most important thing in your life.”

In my teaching, I also talk about the obstacles to the arising of Presence. In creating Doorways into Presence, our goal was to provide you with everyday skills and practices that I use in my own life to help you overcome these obstacles. Each of these practices is designed to take you beyond the thinking mind and awaken the Presence that is for many others still dormant.

It is increasingly vital for human beings to go through this shift in consciousness. And although it is a time of great turbulence, it is also a time of great opportunity—because it is most often through challenges that we begin to awaken. Doorways into Presence is intended to accelerate the awakening in you, and therefore, in humanity.

I wish you well on your journey,

Eckhart Tolle

What the Team Is Saying

One of the perks of working with Eckhart Teachings and Sounds True is we get to check out the newest programs before their publication dates. In these short testimonial videos, three of our staff members describe their experience with Doorways into Presence.

From anxiety to Presence

Wendy Pardo shares how Eckhart’s “Contemplating the Sky” practice enabled her to overcome suffering on the spot — and turn a stressful situation into an enjoyable connection with friends.

Immediate transformation

Dean Hurtt tells us how Eckhart’s personal demonstrations immediately expanded his ability to practice Presence with confidence — without engaging in thinking or a need to understand. 

Making Presence my priority

Joe Ditta discusses the cumulative benefits of the everyday “anchors” to Presence taught in the course.



Opening Practices

In our first session, Eckhart discusses the need at this time for a collective awakening of consciousness, and how the practices in the course will help accelerate this shift as each one of us learns how to boost our “Presence Power” and step out of mind identification. 

He then leads us in two foundational practices: “Sitting Quietly” and “Awareness of Objects.”


Bringing Presence to Daily Activities

We greatly diminish our lives, teaches Eckhart, if we reduce the present moment to a means to an end. Session two builds upon the practices from week one, with three exercises to bring greater attention to ordinary activities we tend to perform with little to no awareness.

Join Eckhart in “Performing an Action Consciously,” “Present Moment Awareness,” and “Enjoying Your Drink Consciously.”


Interacting with Nature

“To really connect with nature you have to be there fully,” explains Eckhart. In our third session, he helps us lift “the veil of concepts” in order to experience plants, animals, and even inanimate objects like stones in a deeper, more alive way.

Eckhart leads us in two delightfully enjoyable practices: “Presence with Animals” and “Connecting with Nature.”


Getting Out of Your Mind

In session four, we graduate to more advanced exercises, with Eckhart’s take on classic awareness practices to help you step out of the habitual stream of thinking as you explore the art of “objectless” meditation.

Relax, replenish, and root into Presence with two practices: “Awareness of Your Breath” and “Awareness of Sounds and Silence.”


Discovering Your Identity Beyond the Physical

The ego is not bad. Nor is it bad to have a personality or social roles. But our lives become dysfunctional if we only know ourselves as the bodies we inhabit and “the story in the head” about who we think we are.

In session five, Eckhart leads you in the great Indian sage Ramana Maharshi’s revered inquiry, “Contemplating ‘Who Am I?,'” and then his own signature practice, “Inner-Body Awareness.”


Expanding Consciousness and Sharing Presence

A majestic horizon or brilliant starry sky evokes awe in us for a simple reason: when we are struck by a vast expanse of space, the mind is stopped in its tracks. And as Eckhart teaches, there is an equally vast spaciousness within you.

This week, Eckhart guides us in two profound practices: “Contemplating the Sky” and “Silent Transmission”—an advanced exercise for sharing Presence through words, touch, or the eyes.


Keeping the Doorways Open

“There is something sacred about the candle,” teaches Eckhart. “You can’t name it, but you can sense it.” In our final session, he shares the “Candle Flame Meditation,” a timeless, peaceful practice for aligning with the stillness of Presence and the light of consciousness in all things.

Doorways into Presence concludes with “The Imperative of Awakening,” a one-hour session where Eckhart discusses the evolution of consciousness as the destiny of humankind.

A free 2-month membership to Eckhart Tolle Now

If at any point you need Eckhart’s guidance on a topic not specifically addressed in the course, there’s a great chance you’ll find what you’re looking for on Eckhart Tolle Now. In addition to a supportive community, you’ll discover practical approaches to bringing Presence to your relationships, your work, your creative pursuits, and so much more. 

Questions You May Be Asking

Given his worldwide popularity, millions of people have read Eckhart’s books, watched his videos, and attended his live events. Yet never before have we filmed Eckhart “behind the scenes” actually demonstrating the approach and attitude toward daily living that he so often describes in his talks. Doorways into Presence is not just a timely program to help us meet the challenges of our modern world, it is a one-of-a-kind collection of everyday guided practices with Eckhart to train you in a new way of being—to strengthen your ability to break free from reactivity, overcome stress and anxiety, find new appreciation for the little things in life and ordinary daily activities, and significantly reduce the amount of suffering in your life and in the lives of those around you. We know that may sound cliché, but we’re confident that you’ll find it to be quite true! And if you happen to be brand new to the teachings of Eckhart Tolle, this course is an ideal starting point.

By design, the practices in Doorways into Presence are indeed simple, yet they are all based on what Eckhart calls “the primordial spiritual practice: returning to the Now.” The thinking mind has a tendency to tell us that big changes require complex steps. However, as Eckhart explains, “The foundation for the so-called future is always the present moment,” and the practices in this course give you several effective ways to maintain that foundation and empower your actions with a wisdom deeper than the mind. In fact, it may be better to think of them not as practices, but as ever-ready pointers to the spaciousness and depth of Presence that is always available.

We guarantee that whatever time you spend, it will take place in the present moment! (We couldn’t help ourselves.) The practices were designed to be relatively short, so you’ll only need about an hour of screen time for each week’s video and workbook exercises. There will also be a 90-minute Live Q&A with Eckhart that will happen midway through the course. In addition, every other week there will be hour-long live community sessions. Therefore your time commitment should average no more than a couple of hours per week. That said, the intention for the course is that you will integrate a variety of the practices into your daily life; in that sense, you can extend your practice time for as long as it feels comfortable for you.

As the saying goes, “It’s called spiritual practice, not spiritual perfect.” Because awakening is an ongoing process, our intention for the free two-month Eckhart Tolle Now membership is to give you additional teachings and practices to explore at your own pace, plus helpful Q&As on a variety of topics and challenges. With more than 450 hours of exclusive video content and an active international community, Eckhart Tolle Now will help you keep the doorways to Presence wide open and available to you, especially in situations that might cause reactivity or regression into less-than-conscious habits. 

We understand financial hardships and want to support all those on the path of awakening. Limited full scholarships and partial scholarships are available to those with legitimate financial need. To apply for a scholarship, please send an email to and request a scholarship application. The deadline for all scholarship applications is Monday, October 2, 2023. You will receive an email on Thursday, October 5, 2023, if you have been selected to receive a scholarship.

No problem. We unconditionally guarantee your satisfaction with this Eckhart Teachings product for one year when purchased via our website. However, if you are not 100% satisfied for any reason, simply return it with receipt for a full refund.
