Miksang Contemplative Photography Level II: Fields of Perception

with Jake Lorfing
February 9 / 9:00 AM - February 10 / 4:00 PM

$55 repeat

Open to those who have completed Miksang Level 1.

Participation is limited to the first 15 registrants.

In Miksang Level II, we continue our exploration of connecting directly to our world, continuing to expand on the basic elements of the Level I assignments.   We explore what is it like to drop our agendas of what makes a good picture, as we allow the people and things of our world to touch us, without separation.

This is a weekend of the heart, an opening to the phenomenal world, a communion with connection.   We relax; we rest in ourselves and our world.  We see what we see, and we take our photographs, exploring all the while the connection between mind, body, and world. 

The assignments in this phase of the training explore the diverse possibilities of contemplative vision. Since there are endless fields of perception, the specific assignments orient to some of the forms of this vision. Our explorations in the wonderful landscape of Houston may include: The Way of Seasons - with particular emphasis on Visual Haiku; the Way of Flowers and Grasses; Ordinary World and Personal World; Impressionism; Landscapes, large and small; People and Other Sentient Beings; and Metropolitan Beauty.
