In one of my workshops I talk about Kairos time.  It is a Greek term that is used when time has nothing to do with chronological time.  We usually do not recognize it when we are experiencing it, but only afterwards.

The creative pursuit of writing our memoirs makes us more aware of this expansive way of experiencing time.  Journaling can lead us to kairos time.  Think for a moment when you have been in kairos.  Is it during meditation or lunch out with your friends?  A great example of being in kairos time is to watch children at play.  We can learn so much for their example, or my dog Courtney seems to always be in kairos time.

  1. Kairos, wow, I haven’t heard that word in some time. I’m very excited to see how meaningful Kairos evolves, living and breathing through your life-story work. Beautiful, Tammy! Thank you for all you’re doing to inspire the creativity, learning, and blossoming of others. Peace and continued good things for you, Dear One.
