Timer event with time set dynamically based on process instance variables

Hi,

I'm very new to Activiti.  I have a basic process set up in XML with a few tasks and some branching, along the way setting and reading process instance variables.  I would now like, at some point in the process, to be able to have the process pause and wait until a certain time is reached.  I believe I can do this with a timer event like:

<blockcode>
<timerEventDefinition>
    <timeDate>2011-03-11T12:13:14</timeDate>
</timerEventDefinition>
</blockcode>

However I would like it to get the timeDate setting dynamically from variables on the process instance.  Is there a way to do this with timer event?  Or another way of approaching this requirement?

Any help greatly appreciated, thanks!
