Online: The Dharma of Deep Time
with Deborah Eden Tull
Sunday, September 13th, 2020 | 3:00pm – 6:00pm, ET

The myth of “not enough time” is one of the most pervasive stories of today’s world, but in this age of global uncertainty, we have a rare opportunity to improve our relationship with time. This online retreat is inspired by the Zen teaching of Uji or “being time.” Resting in present moment awareness, we reconnect with “all time being” and “all being’s time.”

Deep time describes the state of spacious non-dual awareness that meditation makes available, taking us beyond conditioned beliefs. It’s the field where we can access our capacity to imagine something different from what is, for the welfare of the whole. When we slow down, we can receive guidance beyond our limited thinking and re-imagine a kinder, more equitable world.

These teachings are rooted in Buddhism, Deep Ecology, and The Work That Reconnects, a process created by Buddhist scholar and eco-philosopher Joanna Macy. On this retreat, we will slow down and accept the invitation to reclaim deep time. We will also apply our dharma practice to the systemic distortions that influence our relationship with time, including domination over nature, patriarchy, colonialism, and capitalism. Join us for a restorative experiential online retreat. All are welcome.
