Level I: Looking and Seeing An Introduction to Contemplative Photography – ONLINE

April 13 @ 5:00 pm - May 25 @ 5:30 pm

Color - Miksang Contemplative Photography - copyright Tim Auman

Miksang, meaning “Good Eye” in Tibetan, is a form of contemplative photography based on the dharma art teachings of Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche.

Miksang teachings help practitioners to see the world as it is, in the absence of the narratives and concepts usually superimposed by the mind, and in the absence of comparing and contrasting mind or personal preference.

Each Zoom session will include photographic explorations, sample images for each week’s content and review of student images and discussion. Feedback is compassionate and highly individualized. We will also examine and discuss photographers and artists whose work is directly influenced by contemplative practices.

The text for the course is Looking at Seeing: Nalanda Miksang Contemplative Photography by John McQuade and Miriam Hall, which is available on Amazon.com as a paperback or e-book.

No photography experience is necessary! Just use whatever camera you have available, including your cell phone.
