A New Earth Phenomena: Oprah 4/09/08.


For those of you following the online sharing of Eckhart Tolle's book "A New Earth" or interested in it at all: A New Earth comes to The Oprah Show on Thursday, April,9, 2008.

In January 2008, Oprah announced her 61st Oprah's Book Club selection, A New Earth by Eckhart Tolle. Unlike past selections, this book isn't a novel or a memoir. In fact, Oprah called it her boldest choice yet."Being able to share this material with you is a gift and a part of the fulfillment of my life's purpose," she said. "It was an awakening for me that I want for you too."

To bring Eckhart's spiritual teachings to readers around the world, Oprah teamed up with the author for the first live, interactive Web series in Oprah Show history. Every Monday, people come together in the Oprah.com online classroom to discuss the chapters' themes and ask questions.The 10-part series kicked off on March 3, 2008, and since then, Oprah says it's all she wants to talk about. "It's just the most exciting thing I've ever done," she says. "Millions of people around the world have begun experiencing A New Earth for themselves and are awakening to the possibilities of their lives.

During the classes, Oprah says she and Eckhart have touched on topics like how to quiet the mind, how to put the ego in check and how to be fully present in the moment. "The one thing I know for sure is that you cannot even begin to live your best life without being connected to your spirit," she says.

Like all things that our hearts know to be real and true, my understandings only grow from new openings and connections. I, for one, will be watching Oprah! on Thursday the 9th on NBC at 4:00 p.m. from my Salem, Oregon living room ;)
