Introduction to Contemplative Photography: Miksang, Level 1

with Joseph Fiala
September 14 / 9:00 AM - September 15 / 5:00 PM

Miksang is a Tibetan word that translates as "good eye." This school of contemplative photography brings together the art of photography, the discipline of meditation and the Dharma Art teachings of the meditation master and scholar Chögyam Trungpa.

This introductory weekend, entitled "Looking: The Phenomenal World".

The first level of training purifies our visual perception by working directly with the elements or forms of the visual field: colour, light and form (texture, lines and patterns). In this level we also attend to the "flash of perception" which discloses a direct presentation of the phenomenal world.
