Plus, Andrew Cohen, whom you appear to disapprove of, has interviewed Eckhart Tolle more than once, a willingness to associate with someone whose trouble record is very well documented.
In Issue 18 of What Enlightenment
? Magazine Fall/Winter 2000, magazine (currently has the title Enlightenext), page 46, there is a dialogue between Andrew Cohen and Eckhart Tolle entitled Ripples on the Surface of being.
It appears that this 2000 inteview has been reprinted quite frequently, generating lots of Google citations that make it seem there is a close association with Tolle and Cohen.
This 'ripples' dialogue took place 3 to 4 years after Luna Tarlo published her expose of her son Andrew Cohen's descent from enlightenment into guru cruelty--The Mother of God
In 2004 Andre van der Braak published Enlightenment Blues, which confirmed much of what Luna Tarlo (Cohen's mother) described in her memoir, The Mother of God, published in 1995/6
Within the past 18 months, Bill Yenner has written a most important book,American Guru
, listing Cohen's track record, and just as important, also tracing the entire cultic milieu of spiritual teachers who have been willing to enable Cohen in his very hurtful career.
Given all this, Eckhart Tolle has been willing to do interviews with Cohen.
It calls enlightentment itself into question when one who is considered awakened or enlightened is willing to associate himself in interviews with a person who generates the kind of witness accounts that Andrew Cohen has done.

It would be very nice if today, Eckhart Tolle would put his alleged enlightenment to work and state that he does not approve of the way Andrew Cohen, from many accounts, treats students.
Dr Susan Blackmore did print such a correction on Bill Yenner's American Guru blog. She does not claim enlightenment--but has shown something much harder to find these days than mere enlighenment--activity by a concerned citizen.
American Guru is quite sobering. I’d had faint worries about Andrew Cohen and his organization but no idea that things were this terrible. Thank you for writing about your devastating experiences.
–Susan Blackmore, Author of Ten Zen Questions
Dr Blackmore also wrote an endorsement of Geoffrey Falk's examination of gurus, Stripping the Gurus.
This gripping and disturbing book should be read by anyone who finds themself revering a spiritual teacher. --Susan Blackmore, author of The Meme Machine
Mr Falk was one of the very first and few to examine the cultic milieu centered around Ken Wilber, Adi Da--and Andrew Cohen. His research was meticulous. Mr Falk wrote with heat and anger, but he did this because he had himself served time in a different cult, and his anger was a manifestation of concern for other people's welfare--another manifestation of active citizenship that is in very short supply in the New Age cultic milieu.
