Miksang: Way of Nature
with Miriam Hall
October 11 / 7:00 PM - October 13 / 5:00 PM
The Way of Seeing and the Way of Nature:
The Way of Nature Opens the Way
In this program of Miksang Contemplative Photography, participants are invited to immerse themselves in Nature - not only Nature (as in the outdoors) but also the nature of ourselves and others. We practice written and photographic Haiku, as well as studying the form. In addition, there are photo shoots, reviews and discussions of Landscape and Flowers and Weeds.
Participants need not have experience - newcomers to both writing Haiku and Miksang photography are welcome. For potential Miksang teachers and those already taking Miksang classes, this course is a follow-up to Level I Level II. A digital camera (point and shoots are fine) is needed to participate.
The instructor is Miriam Hall, a senior Miksang Contemplative Photography teacher. This will be her third visit to Austin to teach Miksang. She travels all over the United States and abroad teaching Miksang, and also teaches Writing Practice as a student of Natalie Goldberg's in her town of Madison, Wisconsin. She can be found at wwww.herspiral.com. More information on Miksang can be found at www.miksang.org.
The cost for the 2 day program is $165. Participation is limited to 14. To sign up or for more information, contact Jake Lorfing at email@example.com or (512) 567-2499.
