Welcome to a whole new way to appreciate the nature of time.


Conventional time is a marvel of human ingenuity and its usefulness cannot be overstated.  The Present is not about getting rid of conventional time it’s about giving your perception of time, space.


Time as we know it now,  portrays the present as a fleeting, hairline fracture between the past and the future. Perceiving the present as a meaningless fraction of time limits our ability to appreciate the holistic nature of life itself.

The Present is a fun and effective way to transform your relationship with time.

It's time to give ourselves and future generations more time.

Do you really want to live the rest of your life experiencing time in only one way? 

If you want more time in your life, all you have to do is give it to yourself.
