Eckhart Tolle Session: The Awakening of Consciousness

In a live appearance at UCLA?s Royce Hall, New York Times best-selling author and spiritual thought leader Eckhart Tolle explains the awakening of consciousness by taking on one of Oprah's signature questions: What do you know for sure? "I know for sure that I'm sitting on a chair," Eckhart says. "That's the most surface level of things. I know for sure that this is a table." His answer is simple enough, but Eckhart delves further. Even these seemingly simple truths are not concrete, he says. Eckhart goes so far as to say that we can't know for sure that life is not a dream, a question that has been posed by many philosophers. Eckhart explains the importance of becoming more present in our daily lives and why the ability to become still is essential.

Deepak Chopra Session: Belief Creates Reality

In a live appearance at UCLA?s Royce Hall, Deepak Chopra explains why a belief is simply a "thought that is true for you." He says the world that we create for ourselves is based on these thoughts, and thus beliefs shape our reality. Deepak goes on to discuss how, as babies, we are filled with curiosity, wonder and bliss. But when we start to be conditioned by the world around us, we begin to build a separate self?one that can fill us with anxiety, pressure and fear. Deepak shares why this ?separate self? is not who we really are. He also discusses what it's like to become present and aware through meditation, and why this awareness is important to our well-being.
