Tolly Burkan teaches us how to pay attention 100%, and to take responsibility for the outcomes in our lives. When Tolly teaches, you are confronted with the profound truth, that you are creating your own reality. He himself has survived many intense life challenges, including two young adult suicide attempts, followed by electro-shock therapy treatments, then cancer, and a broken neck.
From these intensely traumatic experiences, Tolly has gained a powerful understanding of how you can use challenges in life as gifts, from which to learn and grow spiritually. Despite the tumultuous events of his adolescence and early manhood, his own teachers taught him how to live again.
Tolly's personal evolution has resulted in his special understanding of life, and he puts this in his books. In Be There Now, his message is one of living in the now, practicing daily gratitude, and giving up the redundant, painful and happiness-preventing sludge that stops us from becoming who we were born to be. Tolly teaches that the best time to change is today. In this book, he shows you how.
