This wonderfully unique collaboration brings together two masters of their fields, joining original words by spiritual teacher Eckhart Tolle with delightful illustrations by Patrick McDonnell, the creator of the acclaimed comic strip MUTTS. Every heartwarming page provokes thought, insight, and smiling reverence for all beings and each moment. More than a collection of witty and charming drawings, the marriage of Patrick McDonnell's art and Eckhart Tolle's words conveys a profound love of nature, of animals, of humans, of all life-forms. Guardians of Being celebrates and reminds us of not only the oneness of all life but also the wonder and joy to be found in the present moment, amid the beauty we sometimes forget to notice all around us.

About the Author

Spiritual teacher and author Eckhart Tolle was born in Germany and educated at the Universities of London and Cambridge. At the age of twenty-nine a profound inner transformation radically changed the course of his life. The next few years were devoted to understanding, integrating, and deepening that transformation, which marked the beginning of an intense inward journey. Later, he began to work in London with individuals and small groups as a counselor and spiritual teacher. Since 1995 he has lived in Vancouver, Canada.
Patrick McDonnell's MUTTS is a combination of his love of animals and his love of the art of the comic strip. Created in 1994, MUTTS now appears in over 700 newspapers around the world and on the web at Peanuts creator Charles M. Schulz called MUTTS "one of the best comic strips of all time." Patrick has received numerous awards for his art and animal advocacy. He has over 20 books in print including the New York Times bestsellers The Gift of Nothing and Hug Time. Patrick is a member of the national boards of directors for both the Humane Society of the United States and the Fund for Animals. He lives in New Jersey with his wife, Karen; the formerly feral feline MeeMow; the still feral Not Ootie; and a new best friend, Amelie. Visit his website at
