What, do you suppose, would it feel like to go for a walk just for the sake of it, where you walked so slowly that an ant had time to get out of your way. Or how would a raisin taste if you truly took the time, say, 30 minutes, to really experience the aroma, the texture, and the taste of single raisin before swallowing it?

No doubt these are rhetorical questions for most of us, but spend a week in upstate New York at the Omega Institute as Body & Soul did, and you'll find that there is method in the madness of these exercises. They are part of Omega's Wellness Week program where participants, among other things, learn to recognize the difference between the quality of their time and the quantity of it.

In this edition of Body & Soul, Gail Harris talks to the co-founder and president of the Omega Institute, Dr. Stephan Rechtschaffen, about his ideas on what he calls timeshifting, and how it is altogether different from time management. Rechtschaffen offers his insights on how to practice reshaping your notion of time and the positive effect it can have on your health.

You'll also meet up with a successful young lawyer who almost by accident ended up at Wellness Week where, he says happily, he got much more than he bargained for.
