A Taste of Mindcamp (Adjust Your Watches)


One of a series of posts profiling some of the 100+ hours of Mindcamp programs you can take this summer. For more on this and other programs, go to: Mindcamp Sessions.

Time For Every Purpose

Deliberately altering the speed of time

We do not live only one present. We live in many times that weave like currents in the sea of life. Each has its unique pace. Dreaming time flows differently from planning time, thinking time differently from acting time. Writing or contemplation time may widen like a lake where thought can rest in new points of view, often leading us to see things invisible at other times.

We have time for painting, dancing, crying, time for surprise, for fright or delight, time for a first kiss, time for gratitude. Each time crosses the others, dilating or contracting them, changing their shapes and rhythms.

Join Matteo and Tim to explore immersing ourselves in our myriad of times, times of unexpected duration, times of uncharted intensity, times for every purpose.

The Skinny: 3 things you will get from this session

  • Experience specific ways in which you can expand or contract the time of your life
  • Test on-demand strategies for making the most of the time you have
  • Learn how timeshifting can create a time for every purpose and a purpose for every time

Matteo Catullo is proof that mastery of commercial economics can transform into mastery of creativity. Much beloved by all who know him, he is an ex-ad-exec, marketing consultant, actor, mathematician, poet, starhunter, co-founder of Mindcamp’s sister conference CREA, and internationally acclaimed for his work in stimulating creative imagination and potential, through programs such as: Pathfinder, City Mapping, Art of Deferring Judgment, Creative Convergence, How to Create a Creative Climate, and Look Again. More importantly, Matteo holds the Italian absolute record for the most hugs.

Tim Hurson helps people become their better selves. As founder/creative director of Manifest Communications, he observed the synergies between creative thinking, marketing, and design. He used these as the basis for his books: Think Better and Never Be Closing. He is now working on a new project: Do it Better. Tim has keynoted in 30+ countries on creative leadership, growth, and performance enhancement, and has lectured in business schools in the US, Canada, Chile, and Australia. He is founding director of several not-for-profits, including Mindcamp.
