In deep meditation, what’s experience of time? When doing your best work, what’s experience of time?Feeling of time: 7 Feeling of time There is a common experience in Tai Chi . . . . Awareness of the passage of time completely stops. ( In The Zone ) Football player John Brodie : Time seems to slow way down . . . . as if I had all the time in the world . . . yet I know the defensive line is coming at me just as fast as ever. (ITZ) Tom Seaver : As Rod Gaspar’s front foot stretched out and touched home plate, in the fraction of a second before I leaped out of the dugout . . . my whole baseball life flashed in front of me . . . . (ITZ) CTM doesn’t discuss these experiences!Slide 8: 8 Between any two moments, see if there might be additional moments. Continue for a minute.Clock watching—A new way?: 9 Clock watching—A new way? Directly balances the throat energy center, where imbalance produces pressure and anxiety about time Balances left and right brain hemispheres In a minute, when the timer on the next slide starts, loosely focus on the moving timer hand. Breathe easily and smoothly through nose and mouth, with the tip of the tongue on the upper palate just back of the front teeth Let the breath become more and more even and continuous, without breaks or jerkiness—this helps to evoke a sense of timelessnessSlide 10: 10Clock Watching and Breathing: 11 Clock Watching and Breathing Did the sense of time pressure and anxiety decrease? Did the feeling of time change? If so, how? Did every minute seem equally long? How were pressure and anxiety related to the flow of time? As a preventative, you can practice this way of breathing as often as you can remember it. After a month or so, your whole energy level and sense of balance and relaxation will probably change.Additional Resources: 12 Additional Resources Longer, free introduction to Mastering Time http://www.tskassociation.org/got-time-introduction.html Complete Mastering Linear Time workshop: http://www.tskassociation.org/mastering-linear-time.html Coaching for individuals and groups Take advantage of a free half-hour interview For more information, send email to: firstname.lastname@example.org You do not have the permission to view this presentation.
