A New Earth – Oprah & Eckhart Tolle – Free 10-week Live Webinar

Nonresistance is the key to the greatest power in the universe – Eckhart Tolle, A New Earth

I caught Oprah today when she had on Valerie Bertellini who shared her story of inspiration and weight loss. I was going to write a post about that but instead I want to let you know about a free, 10-week live webinar that Oprah is starting based on Eckhart Tolle’s new book, A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life’s Purpose.

The webinar will begin next Monday, March 3, at 9pm EST and will run for the next 10 weeks at the same time each Monday night. It will be a live webinar with both Eckhart Tolle and Oprah, and you can send in questions ahead of time for the opportunity of having them answered.

I have Eckhart’s previous book (which I also highly recommend), The Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment. You can easily guess it is about living in the present moment; the only moment that truly exists. A New Earth is on the same topic of living in the now and moving beyond your ego-based consciousness, which if you’re familiar with A Course in Miracles, you already have a good grasp on.

I haven’t finished A New Earth yet, however I will have by the weekend so that I’m ready for the first lesson on Monday. This is a worldwide event, an event that is truly an awesome example of how the Internet can be used for so much good on this planet.

A New Earth by Eckhart Tolle

Here’s how to sign up for the free 10-week webinar:

  • If you’re already a member of Oprah.com, click here to sign in and then you will be redirected to the webinar registration page.
  • If you aren’t a member of Oprah.com yet, sign up for a free account.
  • After you submit your membership information, on the next page you will see the box (first in the list) to tick to join “A New Earth” Web Event for Oprah’s Book Club Members.
  • You will receive an email that you will need to confirm in order to activate your membership.
  • You will need to install a particular media player in order to access the webinar, you can do that here.

That’s all there is to it besides reading the book and showing up. ;)

Now you might be wondering why in the heck I recommending you read this book and do the webinar; what does this have to do with weight loss? Well, like you already know if you’ve been with me here at Fearless Fat Loss for awhile (and if you haven’t, welcome!), I believe in a whole body (whole foods and exercise), mind (changing your thoughts), spirit (loving yourself now) prescription to heal overeating and overweight for life.

There is a reason that you overeat (emotional eating, food addiction, misinformation), there is a reason you turn to food to make yourself feel better, and there are thoughts behind all of your actions. There are thoughts you have that are holding you back from breaking free of the self-imposed poor treatment you’re giving yourself, and there are thoughts you could be thinking that would allow you to love yourself today and move beyond self-criticism and self-sabotage.

The more that you (all of us, me included) work on your inner self, even if it doesn’t seem to be directly related to weight loss, the more that you will learn how to achieve peace and happiness in your life today – not when you lose weight, but now. It is by achieving that happiness today that will make it so much easier to naturally treat yourself like your own best friend, live in the now, and move beyond unhealthy lifestyle habits. You see, I firmly believe that by telling someone to just “diet & exercise” that it’s not enough; if it were, why are there so many repeat dieters in this world?

I also have another reason that I’d like you to read A New Earth and do the webinar – because every single person (that means you!) who works on raising their consciousness contributes to a better Earth. We can never change anyone else, only ourselves, and every positive step each of us takes to raise our consciousness and vibration on this Earth, the better space it will be for all of us living here.

So get on over to Oprah.com and sign up. If you don’t have the book yet you can get it here at Amazon and start reading. Maybe we’ll see each over there next Monday night (my user name is allgood108). I’m sure it will be very positive, inspiring, and consciousness raising.

    Funny, a friend called me last night to make sure I knew all about Oprah and Eckhart! I guess the word is spreading. I was just sitting down to write something about this on my blog, too.

    Cool Tom! Will you be on the webinar? My plan is to finish A New Earth by the weekend, but even if you haven’t started reading it yet as long as you finish chapter one before Monday night then you’ll be good since the first lesson will be on chapter one. I’m excited about such a positive event, hope you’ll be there! :)

    ha…I was just about to blog about that series I think it is going to be great I bought that book for my girl about a month ago and of course she has read it…which is a bummer…because nothing like knowing someone has potential and they crap on it.

    Hi Ryan,

    I hope you still do blog about the New Earth webinar! Spread the word to your readers.

    I think it’s a great thing, and the more people who know about it, the better. Not that everyone will want to do it (your girlfriend might not be interested, for instance), but that’s not the point – the point is to just put the information out there. I hadn’t heard about it until I caught Oprah that day.

    I’ve read the first 2 chapters so far. My goal was to have the whole book finished before Monday but each week is a lesson based on the consecutive chapters. I’d rather keep it fresh in my mind and read a chapter a week.

    I, for one, will be there.

    What a rip. The hyped Oprah thing is a friggin bust. Nothing but a dark screen. It does not work, With a note to watch the thing tomorrow on her web site. I have arranged my time for NOW, and it friggin sucks to have the thing not work like they said it would. so much for having buckets of money and selling millions of books. does no freaking good.

    Oprah and the runt Tolle are frauds to lead everyone on like this. shame. shame. Shame.

    Hi George,

    I couldn’t see it either, I wonder if anyone could.

    I think (but I don’t know, I’m sure we’ll hear what happened) that they didn’t allow for the traffic. She said today that there were already 750,000 people signed up, and I bet there were many who waited until right before the event to sign up, too.

    Here’s what I’m thinking (because it also frustrated me)….what can I learn from this? Did I have expectations? (yes, I did). Whenever I have expectations I’m often disappointed. When I’ve gone into things and released my expectations, then I am never disappointed. That’s just me, I bet this issue brought up “stuff” for everyone who didn’t get to watch (maybe thinking “it’s only me”, I thought that also). :)

    So, let’s see what they can tell us. They need to upgrade their servers for one (that’s what I think). I’ll check out the lesson on her site tomorrow and I hope that they’ll get this ironed out for next week.

    Hi Coll, I hope you got to see it tonight! :)

  • Suzq

    I was able to watch the first 15 minutes, then the feed started to stutter and eventually stopped. I too was feeling so let down, doubting my computer, etc until they put up a notice that the internet traffic was too heavy. Well, no duh! I thought that’s why they wanted everyone to pre-reg so they could anticipate/be prepared. I totally agree with your “thinking”. Your post kept me from a food sabotage! Thanks!

  • http://www.fearlessfatloss.com JoLynn Braley

    Hi Suzq!

    Oh I’m so happy to hear that you didn’t sabotage yourself with food! Can you just imagine how many of us could have felt that it was “only me” who couldn’t watch….at least you did get to see 15 minutes. George and I didn’t see any of it, but again, I’m sure there were 1,000′s of others in the same boat.

    Congrats on not going for the food over this Suzq. How inspiring, I won’t be doing that either. ;)

    I am so greatful to Eckhart Tolle and Oprah for turning me onto Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor and her beautiful book “”My Stroke of Insight”". Her story is amazing and her gift to all of us is a book purchase away I’m happy to say.

    Dr Taylor was a Harvard brain scientist when she had a stroke at age 37. What was amazing was that her left brain was shut down by the stroke – where language and thinking occur – but her right brain was fully functioning. She experienced bliss and nirvana and the way she writes about it (or talks about it in her now famous TED talk) is incredible.

    What I took away from Dr. Taylor’s book above all, and why I recommend it so highly, is that you don’t have to have a stroke or take drugs to find the deep inner peace that she talks about. Her book explains how. “”I want what she’s having”", and thanks to this wonderful book, I can! Thank you Dr. Taylor, and thank you Eckhart and Oprah.

    Hi Willie,

    I’ve heard of her story, did Eckhart mention it in the webinar series with Oprah? It does sound familiar but I haven’t read it, thanks for the recommendation!
