Into to mindfulness through photography

Join

Content

Through this session, photography will be used as a tool for adventure and meditation.

Tasks encourage a slowing down of self and to develop a non-judgment attitude to your own images. Photography can be as much about being lost in a moment and serendipitous happenings associated with creativity, these sessions explore a camera as a form of experimentation and a tool that might create new experiences.

This workshop helps participants to look, see, and hear things that are perhaps sometimes overlooked creating personal narratives and storytelling.

Photography as a form of personal visual language through meditative moments.
