What is Miksang?
Miksang is a Tibetan word that translates as "good eye.” The Nalanda Miksang school of contemplative photography brings together the art of photography, the discipline of meditation and the Dharma Art teachings of Chögyam Trungpa.
In this introductory level course, explore your visual experience through contemplative photography. When eye and mind are in the same place at the same time you see clearly and the images are strong and vivid.
The online format allows you to engage with Miksang practice in terms of your own schedule and lifestyle. This online course will present the full range of visual explorations over July and August 2019. You will be able to post your images through social media (using Flickr), share your images with others and receive feedback and instruction from senior Miksang Teacher, Miriam Hall, from Madison, Wisconsin USA.
(If you miss a Zoom session, you can still access the recording to watch any time).
Registration fee is a wide ranging scale from $150 (AUD) full price down to $50 (AUD) concession.
I teach contemplative arts: art-based contemplative practices. My offerings include contemplative writing, contemplative photography (Miksang) and creative process programs, in the form of online and in-person classes, retreats and individual coaching/mentoring.
All of my teaching is based in dharma and buddhism, but you don’t have to be buddhist to benefit. The fundamental view of dharma art is that creativity arises from clear perception. As living, sentient beings, perception is available to all of us, all of the time, so all of us have access to creative inspiration simply by being.
Meditation, dharma teachings and contemplation are woven into what I teach in various ways, depending on the location, the students and the practice(s) involved.
I look forward to playing in perception with you soon.
