Eckhart Tolle Is A Tool

File under: Gurubusting, Satscams and The Siddhi of PR

We told you about this before, but it certainly bears repeating. A reader reminded us this morning that Eckhart Tolle is a "presence" flimflammer:
[Tolle] just appeared here in Seattle and tickets for the 3-hour event were priced at $95 to $220. (The hall holds 2500.) From [his website]: "More importantly than any words, however, these sessions represent an invaluable opportunity to allow yourself to be drawn into the awakened state by the intense conscious presence of the teacher and thus experience it first hand."
Another spiritual teacher whoring their "presence" for money. Almost all of the big-time gurus are doing it, and none of them care that it's like shitting directly into their students' brains.

That is so true. I first started attending Tolle satsangs in Seattle area when it was free and they (meaning Tolle and the sponsors) were lucky to get a hundred people in attendance.

He has a compelling style and I enjoyed his sense of humor, but he isn't worth the price of a current ticket, and buying and attending certainly would not guanatee that one would find the realization they claim.
