Healing Time | Live Retreat | Okt 17-22

Retreat with Jack Petranker in Neu Plaue Retreat Center Germany October 17-22-2023

Coming home through healing your connection to time

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.

The more we let ourselves care about what we are doing with our lives, the more we can transform time,
making its dynamic available for the fulfillment of our human being.
