Photography lends its well as a mindful meditative practice. By creating a space for heightened awareness and opening ourselves more fully to experiencing the visual elements of the external world, we can extend the boundaries or our visual awareness, sensitivity and intuition. With the emphasis less on the subject photographed as on the way the subject is experienced -- connecting to the "is-ness" of the image, -- we are more free to let the image speak and to find the "truth" of the moment. Seeing beyond the surface appearance of things can inspire us to experience a greater sense of openess to insight. As well, experiencing a more expansive sense of self through mindful reflection can promote a deeper sense of unity, toward a more authentic way of seeing and being in the world.
This experiential workshop will offer a safe place to discover photograpy as a mindful meditative practice through image-taking, presentations, reflection and discussion.
All photographic skill levels are welcome. Access to a digital camera, either point-and-shoot or SLR, is required.
