Looking and Seeing: Introduction to Contemplative Photography
737 Delaware Avenue, Buffalo NY
The Shambhala Meditation Group Suite #116
Don’t miss this rare opportunity to explore this innovative yet accessible practice!
Learn to see the ordinary magic in your everyday world through Miksang Contemplative Photography, taught by Ray Ball and Trudy Stern. Long time meditators and formal students of Buddhism, Ray is a Zen Buddhism practitioner and Trudy is a Shambhala Buddhism practitioner. Both are also Nalanda Miksang students of John McQuade and Miriam Hall, senior Miksang teachers and authors of our recommended text. (See below)
Everyone is welcome. No technical photography experience is required beyond familiarity with the 'point & shoot' capability of your camera.
Like meditation, Miksang photography helps us synchronize body and mind. “Miksang” means “good eye” in Tibetan, and is a contemplative practice for purifying our visual perception and learning to see the world directly, with no judgment or agenda.
This is a hands-on weekend workshop with talks, photographic exercises, image reviews, and more. Please bring a digital camera if you have one. If not, you can use the camera on your cellphone. (For more information about Miksang photography visit http://www.miksang.org)
Bring a digital camera and your curiosity. A charging device and empty memory card are also highly recommended. Dress for the weather.
To register, email Trudy at firstname.lastname@example.org
Workshop tuition: $95.00 (repeat workshop registrants: $50.00).
