The Zen of Seeing: Photography as Meditative Practice

  • Buddhist Retreat Center, South Africa Ixopo, KwaZulu-Natal South Africa (map)

In this retreat we will explore the connection between meditation and photography.  You will learn techniques to bring mindfulness and awareness into your photography practice, as well as ways to more fully express yourself, your senses and your feelings in the images you make.  Reflective focus practices using your eye and your camera will build your image-making skills, while showing you the value of “seeing through quiet eyes”.  In addition, you will learn to create a simple, zen-like book as a container for the “Meditative Moments” you experience in your image-making.
