I have just joined the forum and would like to introduce myself. Am I the only member from Austria?
I am 39 years old and a teacher for English and music in a Grammar school in Graz. I am married to an English man and have two children aged 7 and 11.
I play Ukulele in a teacher's band and have just started my 9 weeks summer holiday.
I am a big fan of Eckhart Toll, especially the book "Eine neue Erde" eng. " A new world" (?) which has become my bible.
I have had a difficult time two and more years ago with everything panic attacks, depression and in all that I constantly felt that all that wasn't me.
I knew exactly that I wasn't depressed and I didn't panic, but somehow I got into that state.
I was fortunate enough to have a really good therapist or counsellor who
helped me and recommended the book to me, which is always on my bedside table ( a bit like Oprah :wink: )

Welcome rosalind. I am glad you found ET as well as this board. As far as I know you are the Austrian registered. Now, don't let that be a source of pressure. :wink:

Welcome, rosalind. Glad you found us.

Yes, Eckhart's teachings are wonderful for panic attacks, depression, etc. And A New Earth is a terrific book IMO.
