We are the time of our lives. When time eats us, it causes suffering; when we eat time, every moment presents an opening to liberation.

Clock time is a convention imposed by economics: it pressures us to rush rather than relish our lives. Much of our clients' problems arise from feeling chained to a past or appropriated to a future. This leaves them little room in which to simply be themselves.

This workshop will help therapists cultivate "presence" with clients. Although therapists are usually paid for a certain number of sessions, each consisting of a certain number of minutes, the healing that occurs in therapy is neither short nor long; time is not linear, but lived. Meeting a client in a moment, "presence" is a gift that grants space in mind.
