of Time 












WHAT IS IT? (καιρός)
Join Like Minds -
"Curated for Curiosity" 
A highly curated group of adventurers, executives, athletes, scientists, thinkers, musicians and time-travelers will gather to discover, explore, and drink from the garden hose of time. 

A 3-day, 2-night adventure, February 15-17, 2019, in Xochitepec, Morelos, Mexico, where you will eat, drink, climb, listen, talk, debate and learn alongside great and curious minds from all walks of life.  
An All Inclusive Immersive Experience...
Set in one of the most beautiful, lovingly restored, and well-preserved hacienda estates in all of Mexico -  Hacienda San Antonio El Puente - where you can let go of all your cares: your lodging, food, drinks, transport, adventures and activities are all taken care of . . . so you can relax, feel the grass beneath your bare feet and let go of those responsibilities to unwind your internal clock.
Packed with Learning...
Event leader, John K . Coyle, has spent more than a decade studying the neuroscience and psychology of time: learn techniques to slow, stop and reverse the perceived acceleration of time and experience endless summers again. 
We've put on our "Design Thinking" hats to match key drivers of chronoception (time perception) with experiences and adventures that will leave a notch in your memory and take you back to the endless summers of childhood. Through lecture, discussion and unique experiences, hear, see, feel, taste, smell and move in a way that will warp time and reset your cognitive clocks - all against a backdrop of incredible beauty.
Away From Your Daily Routine...
Near Cuernavaca, the "City of Eternal Spring,"expect nearly perfect weather, lush gardens, and a magical world of natural splendor balanced with the traditional hacienda architecture and modern luxuries and comforts. With ample time to learn, reflect and make deep connections, time will slow down and you will find laughter, smiles and new friends for life.
In a Colonial Hacienda, not a stuffy hotel...
You will stay in a luxurious guest room, with hand carved wood furnishings. Let the sounds of nature lull you into a tranquil state while you relax on a sumptuous bed, ensconced in a rich, colonial-inspired décor.
Delicious Fresh Food...
Througout the weekend you will experience delicious traditional Mexican dishes, fresh food lovingly prepared by expert chefs using locally grown products.  

Creative, healthy and delicious, your meals will be served at a variety of beautiful garden and exotic historic settings, both inside and alfresco. 
Music & Moving & Laughter & Fun...
Morning movement options, exotic adventures and old-fashioned play while the sun shines, with evening guest musicians to get you moving and grooving, the beating of your heart setting a tone for the day, then resonating into the rhythm of the night. 
People who have been to one of John's  
Time Expansion Summits are saying  
I am ALIVE again, awake and open in a way that I don't know I've ever been. This weekend created the space that allowed me to choose to open my heart and eyes again.

HR Lead Consultant at Allstate

With his concept of Time Expansion, John has tapped into something HUGE in the human psyche. His Time Expansion Summit at Powder Mountain, in Eden Utah, was mind and life-shifting. We talked about Chronos vs Kairos, PTSD vs PTD, and designing a life that builds on your strengths and works around your weaknesses... and much more. Above and beyond the talk, we had amazing, once in a life-time experiences.

Kudos and gratitude to #TheTimeGuy!

I've never spent time with a more brilliant, inspiring group of people. The week following the summit, I made changes to my life that immediately made life more fun and rewarding.

Although it’s almost been a month since I attended the Time Summit with John Coyle, the lessons learned will forever enhance how I process and utilize time. 

Before John’s event, I lacked the formula and the understanding of how to slow down time and squeezing the most out of it. Now, because of the engrained lessons learned at the Time Summit,I am able to create lasting, memorable experiences for myself and for those I love. 


The week after the event, I was able to apply each of strategies to make a trip to Africa with my family one we will forever cherish. 

For giving me this gift, I will be ever grateful to you John!' 

                       
Norm Caldwell, Wealth Management Advisor
John's understanding and teaching on time perception is far reaching and provides greater insight into what it means to be human from a cognitive lens. As a Design Thinking expert his illumination on the subject of time offers a truly unique experience when reviewing one's own understanding of the whole of life's wonders and the moments we regard as special and sacred within each of our daily lives with family, friends, and in the professional arena. 

The body of work John has created is transformative in depth and scope. the Time Expansion Summit offers a unique experience which allows reflection, a discrete opportunity for connection within a community of high performing individuals, and a combination of design thinking and neuroscience which harnesses an undeniable human experience through structured activity eliciting genuine and authentic memories. 

My experience was one of practice and applying the principals, of mindfulness, intentional awareness, through the process of utilizing activities to anchor the experience aiding in deriving long term memories or "event horizons". 

I highly recommend those who are able to be a part of this life altering experience, to make time and space in your life to receive the gift of time!

The week after we got home was intense for me! I experienced exhaustion (you weren’t kidding!), social excitement, more profound storytelling, and a heightened sense of confidence. I feel that you taught us the “secret of time” at T2S2. Learning the science while also experiencing such profound Kairos in a single weekend helped raise my confidence to design my own life going forward.
