The Well of Deep Time – new contemplative practice

New 15 minute contemplative practice for use in small groups invites people to travel back through the evolution of our beautiful planet. Listen now, or download a beautifully illustrated version.

As part of our collaboration announced today with the Long Time Academy, we are excited to release a new 15 minute contemplative practice called ‘The Well of Deep Time’, which is the bonus feature for the second episode of The Long Time Academy podcast. Written by Stephan Harding and Robert Woodford for use in small group settings, the practice provides a journey back through deep time.

As participants use their imagination to sink down into the well of time, they are invited to explore their deep ancestral history and the interconnectedness of all life. This inner practice is useful for contexts where facilitating a 4.6km Deep Time Walk with groups is not possible.

You can listen to an audio version of the practice read by Kessonga Giscombe (one of the meditation teachers at Headspace) alongside The Long Time Academy podcast.

We are also pleased to release The Well of Deep Time with beautiful illustrations by Matilda Ruta under a Creative Commons license for non-commercial usage. You can download this now as part of our Deep Time Field Kit.
