Field Study: Applied Effects of Psychology of Time for Environmental Philosophy | DIS – Study Abroad | 26.10.2022

Thank you for last week’s event with a change of scenery! 

On Wednesday morning, with DIS: Copenhagen, we found ourselves in a bus driving outside Copenhagen for an adventure!

The event took place at Karlstrup Kalkgrav lake, where students were able to learn about geology, the history of the lake, and the psychology of time while walking in nature and going with the flow. 

We looked into:

  • Balanced Time Perspective in Therapy;
  • Time perspective theory;
  • Balanced time perspective profile;
  • Personal and global future;
  • Living in the present.

The main activity was a mindful walk in silence while experiencing living in the present, contemplating, and observing the surroundings. After this, students shared their feelings, impressions, and diverse points of view.

This activity allowed students to reflect and become more conscious of their views on the human-made lake and its nature.

As a result, students discovered that while having different thoughts about it and listening to totally different experiences of others, all of them were right, depending on their past experiences. 

It was wonderful to be a part of this adventure, and we look forward to hearing more about students observing their lives and reflecting on their Time Perspective Profile to become more balanced. 

If you are a practitioner (psychologist, therapist or coach) and interested to learn more about the Balance Time Perspective Coaching please join our educational seminar on it. 

If you are interested in self-development and learning more about your personal time perspective profile and how to reach more balance, you can join the course “Where is my time?” or reach out for an individual consultation. 

Many of the Creative Time Studio’s workshops are tailor-made, so don’t hesitate to reach out by requesting a workshop that fits your organization, class or group’s needs.

Trip to Tunisia – March 2017

My field study trip to Tunisia was very inspiring and full of unexpected discoveries. What struck me the most was the light – it is something very special there. The sky seems to be so high and the light is amazing. It’s hard to explain what is it exactly about it. So if you’re curious, I just invite you to visit Tunisia and see and experience it yourself.

I am considering to organize a Finding Creative Flow – a sketching and writing trip to Tunisia later on this year, possibly in October – November. Join my Newsletter to get the first notification about it.

I was happy to study a bit before the trip about the journey that  Paul Klee and August Macke took in Tunisia back in 1914. It gave me a few hints what to look for and where.

I have visited Testour and saw the clock that goes backwards. Spent a memorable day in Dougga exploring the Phoenician and Roman architecture. The way they built houses, streets, baths, and of course, the mosaics.
