Eckhart Tolle Personal History

Eckhart Tolle is German born and bred, living his early years in Luhen, with his family. During his early childhood, his parents divorced, leading him to live with his mother in post-war Germany. After his 13 birthday, Eckhart moved to Spain to live with his father where he became interested in astronomy and languages which he started studying at home.

In his young adult years, the now successful author and life coach moved to London, England to study literature, philosophy and psychology at the University of London. After graduation, he suffered an extreme phase of severe depression, right until he turned 29. This influential stage of his life shaped him into the person he is today.

After he turned 29, Eckhart had what can only be explained as an intense inner transformation in which he described as a ‘deep spiritual awakening’. This profound change instilled a sense of bliss within himself allowing enlightenment almost overnight… This put him on the career path he is on today

Back in his personal life, he married Kim Eng after the couple met in 1995 whilst Eckhart was working as a spiritual guide. The couple now live in Vancouver, Canada and do not have any children and keep their private life just that, private. He prefers solitude and is committed to helping others achieve spiritual awareness.

He does not actively practice any religion but has stated to follow some teachings of religions such as Buddhism, Hinduism and Christianity.

Eckhart Tolle Professional Career

Following his spiritual awakening, the academic gave up studying and instead for a large proportion of his days sat in Russel Square in London in a state of complete bliss! After this he changed his first name to Eckhart as a nod to the German philosopher Meister Ekhart who influenced his transformation greatly. After this he resided in a series of Buddhist monasteries and acted as a spiritual guide and counsellor firstly to friends, then to a wider network.

Then years later in 1995 he moved to Vancouver, Canada where he began writing. His first book was an immediate success. Published in 1997, The Power of Now initially only printed 3000 copies but then 2 years later in 1999 went for a larger publication. Following a recommendation from chat show host Oprah Winfrey, the book’s sales skyrocketed and The Power of Now before a New York Times bestseller. Since then, the book has been translated into over 30 languages.

His literary success doesn’t stop there. 6 years later in 2003 Stillness Speaks was released, then in 2005 A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life’s Purpose was published. His third book was equally as successful as his first and also reached the New York Times bestseller list in 2008.

After further recommendations from Oprah Winfrey in her columns and chat show, the pair decided to partner and launch a series of webinar sessions based on the book A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life’s Purpose. Each chapter of the novel has its own webinar where Eckhart and Oprah would discuss these topics, provide short meditations and answer followers’ questions.

After his literary and webinar success, the expert set up Eckhart Teachings which aimed to sell products based on his teachings. He also launched Eckhart Tolle TV in which he shares meditations and other spiritual videos.
