Healing Time Retreat | Awaken to the aliveness of each arriving moment

With Jack Petranker

September 13 - 17, 2023

Exploring Time, Space and Knowledge at Ratna Ling

We live on the surface of time, moving from moment to moment without ever really connecting with time’s inner dynamic. Cut off from the depth of experience, we easily feel frustrated, isolated, emotional, and resentful.

It doesn’t have to be that way. We can heal our connection to time, and discover that time is the beating heart of experience. It’s like finding our way back from exile, like coming home. New ways of knowing and being become available, and we move naturally toward joy and inner peace.

This retreat will draw on short readings from Chapters 29 and 30 of Tarthang Tulku’s Dynamics of Time and Space. It will emphasize practice and discussion.
