Do you ever feel so rushed that you can't stop to think? That's because you spend your time either speeding forward or thinking about the past few minutes, without really concentrating on living in the present moment. We all have the capacity to look at time, step into a new awareness of it and experience its next dimension, time freedom. Timeshifting is the method for doing this, as well as Stephan´s book of the same name in which he explains how to experience time with all the facets of our being; with all our senses, with our perceptions, our feelings, and our heart. How to live our lives to their fullest potential, to find the time to enjoy ourselves, our families, and our jobs.
