Although we live in the society of acceleration, in which  time is money and productivity, there is are many evidences showing the importance of slowing the pace down, embedded in movements such as Slow Medicine, Slow Food, and in books which are reminding us the importance of resting.

In this seminar, we will discover four different conceptions of time: the linear one, represented by Chronos, which is related to productivity (quantity of time), and the istant time, Kairos, that very moment in which we add quality and creativity, since we may take a very important decision, change strategies and reset our mind.

The other two conceptions of time are the the Aion long period, the never ending waiting period and the cyclic time, the Orai of nature.
 
These four concepts will be revisited in the health care and wellbeing system, remembering that sometimes Haste Makes Waste and leads to the wrong decision.
