You can finally drop all the archaic views and limitations of time that have held you back from fully embracing the wild beautiful truth: time is not a defined line; it is instead a vibrant, completely moldable, layered, multi-faceted work of art that is in your artistic hands to create and design, each and every day. Creating Time is a fascinating adventure where you'll not only imagine and create but completely reshape the way you think about your own time, using art, science, and imagination as powerful catalysts for lasting change. -- Marney K.

From the Book's Foreword by Marci Shimoff:
Creating Time is a heart-centered-yet-practical guide that offers a new paradigm of time and the tools to implement it. Marney Makridakis has devoted her career to helping people live fuller and more meaningful lives by connecting with their own creativity. In this unique and enchanting book, she shows us how to use our creativity to experience a new relationship with time.

By accessing that part of our selves, we go beyond our normal ways of thinking and are able to experience time in more empowering ways.
