This course will explore the radically positive vision of our human future offered by the great Unexcelled Yoga Tantra system of Kalachakra, the Wheel of Time (or the Clockwork Process). The program will be presented in three evenings culminating in a Saturday workshop that compares the ancient tradition of meditation with modern scientific discoveries aimed to expand the participants’ impact of their spiritual practice in light of the Kalachakra’s vision of how personal transformation naturally accelerates positive interpersonal, social and planetary evolution.
We will focus on the system’s distinctive synthesis of all human knowledge into an integrated multidisciplinary science of conscious evolution that divides nature, life and spiritual practice into three types of Clockwork—External, Internal and Transformational.
We will unpack the system’s vision of our evolutionary baseline as the interweaving of the External Clockwork of nature with the Internal Clockwork of stress-driven development and society.
We will focus on the system’s distinctive approach to Unexcelled Tantric practice—the Transformational Clockwork—explaining this “transparent tantra,” how it envisions the contemplative science of transformation, and how it places that science in the driver’s seat of a complete science of individual thriving, social justice, and planetary healing.
Saturday retreat, May 22
We will guide participants to expand the aim and impact of their practice—whether Sutric or Tantric—in light of the Kalachakra’s vision of how our personal transformation naturally accelerates positive interpersonal, social and planetary evolution.
