    Einstein famously remarked that time – or the distinction between past, present, and future – is an illusion. Yet we experience events in a temporal order we call the ‘passage of time’. In this workshop participants are invited to reflect on how they perceive time, as we explore the roles of perception, memory, and emotion in temporal experience. This session is part of the 2022 Mental Wealth Festival hosted by City Lit and partners.
