Publisher's Summary

Eckhart Tolle teaches a surprising form of emotional alchemy

To be human is to suffer. Whether it is brief annoyance or a life-altering cataclysm, everyone will encounter suffering - and yet, according to Eckhart Tolle, all of these painful moments contain an opportunity for awakening.

In Transforming Suffering into Peace, this celebrated teacher offers a new perspective on the ego and what he terms "the pain-body" - all the accumulated emotional wounds that follow us through life. Though the pain-body can easily rise up and hijack our consciousness with unpleasant emotions, in this program Eckhart reveals a hopeful truth - by turning the light of awareness on our suffering, that suffering becomes a powerful gateway to Presence. Join Eckhart for more than three hours of insights on how to stay present during the arising of the pain-body and how to take advantage of what is actually a potent opportunity for awakening into Presence.

Here you will learn:

  • Why resentment and an inability to forgive supercharge the pain-body
  • How to stay present while honoring inescapable emotions like grief
  • Why some forms of suffering don't look like suffering on the surface
  • How to respond to challenging situations without feeding the ego
  • Why acceptance of the present moment doesn't mean passivity 

In the words of Eckhart, "The less you personalize the pain you feel and associate it with a story in your head...the more quickly it becomes transmuted. It becomes fuel for your consciousness." With Transmuting Suffering into Peace, you will discover just how even our most challenging experiences can become openings to a richer and more grounded life.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

Wonderful teacher!! Aha Moments found within!

I have not even finished this book, I am only about halfway through but as with all of Eckhart Tolle’s books, it is absolutely amazing. Even though he is constantly delivering the same or similar messages in his books, he manages to do so in new ways each time. I am able to see myself in many of the situations he talks about and am learning to be more fully present and more fully alive. II still have a very long way to go. I cannot imagine growing tired of his teachings. I have a husband who is much more fully alive and in tune with his conscious self but is blissfully unaware of this kind of language and teachings. I really believe he is a product of his environment and wonderful parenting. We’ve been married for 30 years and everybody who meets him loves him. Now I know why ... ego is not central to who he is like it is for most of us. I hope to read all of Mr. Tolles books!!!!

Thank you, Audible!

This is wonderful, as usual for Eckhart Tolle.
Nobody can manage to bring me back to the present moment the way he does.
I recommend this to all fans of this amazing man.
He's so real. And I love his gentle humor. He reminds us to laugh at ourselves.
Fantastic book! I will listen to this again and again. (my pain body is rather large) haha

Strongly recommended

This book is next level, literally next level - I’ve been awe struck several times while listening and found myself clipping and noting parts to review. And I just don’t do that kind of thing. This book, though...wow.

Revolving and Straight forward...

One of those books that you just can't read once, it should be referred to as often as possible.

Very Powerful and Riveting Session

I will listen to this book my more times because it has a lot to say. In my opinion , Eckhart Tolle’s teachings are deepening and becoming even more profound. He and the messages are evolving as well as those that are being drawn to his teachings.

Great Book!

I enjoyed this book thoroughly. Eckhart Tolle is a Great teacher & has a calming voice with his audio books. This helped me really understand the need of forgiveness of oneself and to see the pain I've been reliving for decades just is my ego trying to keep me from becoming my full complete self.
