....use your smartphone to tune in rather than tune out.
Photography can function as a powerful tool to enrich the quality of our perception and awareness, our mindfulness and our capacity for presence; to actively engage with the world around us. Photography, whether smartphone or SLR, can be a way of fixing time, paying attention, slowing things down and heightening our experience of the world.
Tibetans refer to this with their concept of Miksang, which at its most basic level is concerned with uncovering the truth of pure perception.
In this workshop we’ll focus on the practice of photography as a discipline of awareness, of unwavering attention to a world, which is fully alive. We’ll explore the difference between actively seeing and passively looking, between leaning into ‘process’ as more important than outcome as a way of focusing attention until it turns into contemplation—of activating our ‘third eye’ where the split between seer and seen evaporate—being in a flow state of pure contentment.
Images resulting from this practice are informed as well by the principles of Elizabeth's 'Good Eye' workshop. Join us for this transformative experience!
