Essential Time Mastery
A 22-minute prerecorded webinar.
What's necessary and essential to master time pressures, anxiety about time, and time poverty--the feeling that we don't have enough time? This seminar introduces essential definitions; inquiry about the zone, personal time, and the source of time pressure; and two powerful methods that can be useful for mastering time. This seminar goes beyond conventional time management and gets to the heart of mastering time. Free, and available on demand, via Internet connection to YouTube.

This introductory nine-minute video on demand, produced by Dr. Steve Randall, is hosted free on YouTube at Got Time? It depicts the habitual Western problems with time pressure and the feeling of not having enough time, identifies common ways of not dealing with the problem, and then suggests that there are ways to change our personal time (like a personal space).

Healing Pain and Time
A 20-minute narrated meditation exercise that is free, and available on demand at Pain Management Also available on YouTube at: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLwpks7yEMxVNazqnAg4rxui0HVtTcLwO7.
The application of TSK to pain management explores these questions: How is the experience of time related to pain, stress, disease, and health? Are there ways to change the experience of stress and pain by changing our experience of time? There are two physician summaries for a comprehensive article on pain and its relationship to the experience of time, a link ( go to http://wp.me/ps9h2-3C ) to the comprehensive article itself, and a narrated exercise that directly explores different facets and ways of relating to pain and 'negative' sensation.
Introduction to Mastering Linear Time
A 48-minute, six-part prerecorded webinar that is free, and available on demand, via Internet, on YouTube. Go to http://www.tskassociation.org/mlt-course-materials.html
This seminar--"Time Management Doesn't Work, and What to Do About It"--introduces the Mastering Linear Time workshop, and points out some limitations of traditional time management. It also introduces the full range of benefits possible with time management and time mastery, and introduces some principles and a few of the many methods that can be useful for mastering time. If you've taken conventional time management workshops, you'll probably find that little or none of this seminar is covered by those workshops, in spite of the importance of this material for practical time management and for optimizing our well-being.
Introduction to TSK
A 20-minute, three-part recorded webinar. Free, and available on demand. Go to http://www.tskassociation.org/webinar-intro-to-tsk.html
What is at the heart of the TSK approach, and how does it work? Where is it documented? Does TSK really challenge any and all limits on knowing, acting, and being? What are the benefits of studying it, putting it into practice, and even 'embodying it'? Can TSK serve as "a visionary medium through which a common ground [can] be found in the pursuits of knowledge carried out by the various sciences and religions?”
Mastering Linear Time
This prerecorded webinar has 35 parts. Covering the material once takes 4.5 hours. Learning the material will probably take longer.
In this workshop, after seeing definitions of three types of time, you’ll practice a dozen exercises that are very effective for relieving time’s friction and relentless ﬂow. You'll learn a way of breathing that immediately relieves anxiety about time passing and begins to dissolve the associated physiological aspects of chronic dis-ease. You'll do this breathing exercise focusing on the second hand of a clock to see how your experience of time changes moment by moment, depending on your awareness and breathing. You'll watch moments as they flow by, and look between 'neighboring' moments to see if you can find additional moments. This opens up the rigid feeling of time passing, eliminates stress, and allows for an increase in productivity and creativity. Other exercises focus directly on various aspects of the way we normally feel time passing, gradually breaking up the rigid habit while improving our sense of well-being. $35, and available on demand, via Internet connection to YouTube. Go to http://www.tskassociation.org/mastering-linear-time.html where you will find links to the sections on YouTube. This workshop can also be presented for groups onsite. Private coaching is also available, and DVDs of the workshop are available for those who wish to study/practice offline.
Moments between Moments exercise
Can you stop time's flow? We can change time pressure and anxiety by directly exploring our own experience of time passing from moment to moment. Between two moments in the passing of time, see whether you can find a third moment. (For a narration of this exercise on YouTube, see “The Moments Between Moments” exercise at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HMHjguvuvRo .) What happens to the usual momentum and pressure of time?
Taking the Pressure Out of Deadlines
This seven-part, 83-minute prerecorded webinar on time pressures was presented live at the Annual Conference of the State Bar of California.
Is it possible to have a schedule full of deadlines, meet the deadlines, and actually improve your health and well-being in the process? Yes! The pressure and anxiety associated with deadlines are not features built into time, not 'facts of life' that we have to put up with. It’s how we handle deadlines that determines our stress level. You can actually increase your energy and conﬁdence under a deadline, but only if you know how to work with time, rather than struggle or race against it. If we can learn how to directly transform time pressure, we can realize signiﬁcant gains in both productivity and well-being. Where's the Pressure Come From? The primary factor is not what most of us would guess: our typical way of experiencing time flowing from moment to moment. The ordinary, yet relentless flow of time sets up the trap for deadline pressure. The trap is sprung by a triggering emotion, like fear of damaging one's reputation by not finishing something on time. The emotion intensifies the 'normal' sense of time passing so it usually feels that time's passing more quickly and the deadline is closing in on us. If we can become aware of such emotions, we can easily relieve a lot of the pressure. $35, and available on demand. Go to http://www.tskassociation.org/deadline-pressures.html
Time Management Doesn't Work -- and What to Do about it
This short seminar introduces the Mastering Linear Time workshop, and points out some limitations of traditional time management. It also introduces the full range of benefits possible with time management and time mastery, and introduces some principles and a few methods that can be useful for mastering time. If you've taken conventional time management (CTM) workshops, you'll probably find that little or none of this seminar is covered by those workshops, in spite of the importance of this material for practical time management and for optimizing our well-being.
