Time, Space, and Knowledge (TSK) Online Classes.

Sign up now!

One year ago, we launched Odiyan’s first-ever online TSK courses. Two groups of students have worked intensively with the TSK teachings and exercises in the Space and Time sections of Time, Space and Knowledge: A New Vision of Reality, and a third group is well on its way exploring the depths of Space. The groups have grown close, sharing joys, frustrations, explorations, creativity, observations, ideas, and impact of TSK on their everyday experiences. The participants’ enthusiasm and depth of experiential connection to the TSK teachings is inspiring.

 

This Spring 2019 we offer two courses. Course 2 will continue the Space exploration, and conclude that section of the TSK book. Course 6 will conclude the Knowledge section of Time, Space and Knowledge. With that accomplishment, the first large group of students, since the 1980s, will have completed an intensive study and practice of Time, Space and Knowledge. Both courses will lead up to an intensive TSK retreat this July, and an anticipated retreat in Europe next Winter.

In Course 2, we will continue the experiential opening begun in Course 1, and especially explore the mental realm. As we become more aware that our ordinary and usual perspective in everyday reality is a limited space and time, we will deepen and broaden practice recognizing all manner of barriers and limitations present but usually “background” in our physical and mental worlds and spaces. We will further develop a skill of gentle and balanced accommodation, opening all perspectives, and penetrating and transparentizing apparent partitions, limitations and barriers. As our usual notions of a ‘person’ and ‘the world’ experientially give way, our challenging all structuring factors becomes itself a path to Great Space.

Times: Sundays:  9:00AM to 10:30 AM PST

In Course 5, we investigated ordinary knowledge in many aspects of our world reality, all from our usual perspective of  the separate drawing apart of the knower, knowables, and ‘lower knowledge’ ways of knowing. We practiced tracing our usual knowledge directly to Space and Time, and thereby exposing fresh knowing and knowledge.

With this developing capability, in Course 6 we will practice and explore further, to be able to trace ‘knowingness’ directly so that everything is seen to be within it and we no longer need to seek it in isolated ‘things’. Through continued practice with exercises that expose a more comprehensive ‘knowing’ continuum (than a separate knower, knowables, and particular ways of knowing), we can find the fulfilling character of experience is unbroken, undisturbed, unexceptionable. This appreciation of appearance is entirely ‘present’ and ‘down to earth’ – extraordinary in its very ordinariness.
