Visionary Author Eckhart Tolle to Speak in DC for First Time
Thursday, October 4, 7:20 p.m.
Warner Theatre, 513 13th Street, NW, Washington, DC

Renowned wisdom teacher Eckhart Tolle will give his first-ever Washington, DC public talk on Thursday, October 4 at 7:30 p.m. This landmark event is being cosponsored by IMCW. The face-to-face encounter with this visionary author is a rare opportunity to experience his conscious presence drawing you into what he calls “the spaciousness that words can only point to.” The talk, “Living in Presence” is expected to draw a capacity crowd to the Warner Theatre venue.
Eckhart will help us to discover our essential nature by offering his one-of-a-kind “pointers” about finding freedom from excessive thinking, aligning with whatever arises in the moment, the nature of consciousness, and more. His own capacity to be deeply present opens up space in such a way that our own inner spaciousness naturally arises. For some, a direct experience of Eckhart can be a profound prompt to greater awareness of the true nature of reality and an ability to dwell in the present moment more steadily.
Eckhart’s own cataclysmic spiritual awakening flooded him overnight after a long period of suicidal depression and academic striving in London. Years later he began writing and the spiritual authenticity of his books ultimately brought him to the attention of Oprah Winfrey. More than 11 million people took the 10-week online course they offered together. Tens of millions of people worldwide use teachings from his bestselling books A New Earth and The Power of Now.
Free teachings by Eckhart are regularly posted to You Tube and he offers an ongoing subscription course at EckhartTolleTV.com. What reassures many of his students is his deep understanding of the essence of the wisdom teachings of the Buddha, Jesus Christ and the world’s great traditions of religion and philosophy. It can be an immense relief, a coming-home, to touch the essential awareness and beyond-ego conduct found in these traditions, yet be free of their institutional constructs that so often obscure the path of spiritual awakening.
Eckhart’s visit will be a highlight in DC during the heated fall campaign season. Tara Brach and IMCW join local cosponsors Grace Productions and the Shalem Institute in helping the evening be a catalyst and connection point for the transformational community here. Sounds True, Eckhart Tolle TV and Eckhart Teachings are national cosponsors.
