“Nature does not hurry, and yet everything is completed” Lao Tzu

We are all familiar with the phrase and feeling of “not enough time”.

This myth of there being “not enough time” is perhaps the most pervasive story of modern society. A story that feeds collective conditioning that causes anxiety and stress.

When we believe the story of “not enough time”, we justify making compromises in

  • how we treat ourselves
  • how we treat one another

and

  • how we treat our world

We feel pressured.

We multitask.

We forget how to tune in to our authentic pace, and give far too much energy to time management.

Deep Time is a state of spacious awareness, available through meditative life, which can only be entered through a doorway that takes us beyond our conditioned beliefs.

This 4-week course, inspired by the Zen teachings of Uji or “being time,” is the practice of being one with the unfolding of time, moment by moment, in a non-separate way that allows time to be experienced as boundless.

When we are fully present, we are “being time.”

Meditation practice is a direct means for softening our obsession with productivity and returning us instead to a more vast presence of being.

We identify and release core limiting beliefs around time that are no longer serving us.

We return to a deeper and more grounded embodiment of presence, in all of our life’s activities.

This brand new experiential and transformative course, with Dharma Teacher and Author, Deborah Eden Tull, focuses on how to learn a healthy balance between productivity and attunement.

We can learn to live our lives in Deep Time.

Discover how to live your life in Deep Time

Join this course and you will learn: 

  • How to identify and release core limiting beliefs around time
  • How to enjoy a healthy balance between productivity and attainment
  • How to escape time constriction
  • How to listen more honestly to your body
  • How to relax more and find your authentic pace
  • How to befriend fatigue and low energy states rather than battle against them
  • How to embody flow more fully in your life

Module 1: The Sacred Pause: A Meditative Life

Have you ever fallen in love?

Maybe you’ve sat in deep meditation, trekked up a mountain peak, been immersed in play with an infant, or experienced the stillness of prayer?

In moments like these, we’ve had an experience of time feeling limitless.

The more conditioned we become however, the more we develop an artificial and adversarial relationship with time.

We treat spaciousness and leisure as a rewarding treat, like dessert.

Time out, vacations, and those moments of grace that sometimes appear in our lives, are experienced as disruptions to the trance of productivity that we dedicate so much of our time.

Deep Time questions our notion of linear time experience.

It invites us to return instead to a more vast presence of being.

In this opening module, we create the framework for returning to the awareness of time as boundless. We recognize the breath, the 4 elements, the natural world, and our human relationships as our teachers and reminders of Deep Time.

Some of the practices and teachings we will explore are:

  • The Sacred Pause
  • Finding Spaciousness in the Body
  • Deep Time and Non-Duality

We will also begin to consciously investigate the mind of separation, in preparation for Module 2;  releasing limiting beliefs related to time.

Module 2: Beliefs Which Limit Us

Every habit of suffering results from a limiting belief.

Explore this with depth and we begin to see that the “not enough time” story is an extension of the “I’m not good enough” story.

A common story many of us carry around at a subconscious level.

Many people today give more attention to planning, preparing, and managing their lives than to actually living them.

We tell themselves,
Once I meet this deadline, I’ll take a break,” or “Once the holidays are over, I’ll make time to care for my body.”

The motivation of “convenience” takes over.

Sustainability, kindness, and “what is best for all” become less a priority.

In this module Eden will guide you to become more aware of how much time can go into the story of “not enough time.” You will become more aware of the impact of this story on your body, feelings, mind, and actions. This story line allows us to justify high levels of stress, to glorify “busy-ness,” and, in so doing, to compromise vital aspects of well-being including rest, enjoyment, relationships, and sometimes simply doing nothing.

Some of the questions we will explore are:

  • The Personal & Collective: What conditioned beliefs have impacted your relationship with time?
  • Knowing Your Authentic Pace: How often do you allow yourself to relax into timelessness?
  • The Signals: What physical, mental, emotional signs tell us we’re becoming stressed by a sense of time constriction?
  • Fear & Time: The relationship of constriction.
  • Surrendering & Spaciousness: How do they relate?

Module 3: A Kinder Schedule: Balancing Productivity and Attainment

While sitting meditation is our training, everyday life is our practice.

We can awaken fully through the beautiful, dynamic, and messy realm of everyday life.

Many people, however, maintain a duality between retreat and everyday life.

In this module, we will learn to balance productivity with mindful attunement in everyday life.

We will explore personal sustainability and balance through teachings from the Dharma and the natural world. You will be guided to find your authentic pace in ordinary activities, allowing your body to be your guide. You will learn how to choose to experience “one moment at a time,” and how to give your attention to “one task at a time.”

Some of the questions we will explore are:

  • Our Natural Feedback Systems: Can we listen more honestly to our bodies, allowing our body to make our schedules?
  • Relaxing and Flowing: How to relax more and be in touch with the flow of time through all of our activities?
  • Befriending fatigue: How can we befriend low energy, rather than battle these states?
  • More Energy? Freedom from the “not enough time” narrative.

Module 4: Deep Time: Reconnecting with All Beings

Once we soften our stubborn grip on linear time, our perception of our world shifts.

We become more aware of the wholeness that exists, in every moment, beyond duality. We become more aware of the interconnection that is our natural state.

We become aware of the timeless nature of all of our relationships.

In meditation, the flow of breath through the body teaches us that every ending is a beginning and every beginning is an ending.

In our final module, we will explore the deeper teaching and larger impact of Deep Time, learning how to embody flow more fully in our lives and in our relationships and interactions.

We will engage in a meditation that connects us with the all beings, living and nonliving, the realm of the ancestors to the realm of nature, in the spirit of service and interconnection.

Our understanding blossoms, the quality of every relationship we will ever have stems from the quality of our relationship with our self.
