The Depths of Being

A Retreat in Hawaii with Eckhart Tolle and Kim Eng

October 4–9, 2020 + Wailea Beach Resort
Maui, Hawaii


Eckhart Tolle

Kim Eng

When you look out over the ocean, what do you see? The churn of the surface? Or do you see the depths hidden beneath? With The Depths of Being, you’re invited to join Eckhart Tolle and Kim Eng to connect with the unwavering stillness underlying all of life.

The Depths of Being is a spiritual retreat like no other. Over the span of six days, Eckhart and Kim will share insights into the “Deep I” through intensive dialogue, movement practices, teaching sessions, and guided meditations. This retreat will sell out! If you want to join Eckhart and Kim for a one-of-a-kind exploration, we highly recommend that you purchase tickets as soon as possible. We look forward to seeing you on Maui!

Location

Hawaii is a land emblematic of change. From the eroding crash of ocean waves to lava flows that constantly reshape the landscape, the Hawaiian islands are the perfect location to consider how the form of the present moment is always in flux.

And it just so happens that the islands are utterly beautiful.

With its green hills, bamboo forests, vast beaches, and deep blue waters, Maui is one of the jewels of the Hawaiian archipelago. Eckhart and Kim are pleased to be able to share a retreat in such an inspiring location. Whether you’re strolling through the resort’s winding garden paths or basking on local beaches, the Wailea Beach Resort - Marriot provides wonderful opportunities to relax and enjoy the best Maui has to offer. Not only will The Depths of Being enrich your spiritual journey, it will also serve as a soothing invitation to the stillness of the present moment—just as it is.

“When the ripple recognizes its true nature as the ocean, that is a magnificent thing.”
ECKHART TOLLE
