Process
Through visual exercises and photographic assignments, we develop confidence in our ability to make direct contact with what we see. We linger with our perception, understand its quality and express this experience precisely with the camera. We all have the talent to experience these waking moments. Direct visual perception is fresh, alive and in the moment.

We will provide talks and slideshows, perception training, visual exercises, photo tasks and photo reviews as part of the process.

There will be time for relaxation or swimming.

Workshop: Making Contact: Relaxing This, Discovering THAT
Day 1-5 > May 15th-19th
Pre-Requisites: None

Making Contact is where “the rubber hits the road” in Miksang. In this workshop we prepare ourselves to see, recognize when we have a fresh perception, understand it, and express it with our camera. We learn to develop a sense of equanimity about what we see. In Making Contact, we work with our resistance to seeing without an agenda, and our struggle to make our world conform to what we want to see. We discover that real seeing takes place on the other side of boredom. As we cross this boundary we discover a world of floating wonder for us to play in.

In the Making Contact Workshop, we are introduced to the four main practices of Miksang: Recognizing Freshness, Seeing the One Thing, Deep Noticing and the Miksang Core Practice.

Workshop: The Heart of Perception: Feeling the Moment
Day 6-10 > May 20th-24th
Pre-Requisites: Making Contact: Relaxing This, Discovering THAT

In The Heart of Perception we experience new depth of visual experience. As we free ourselves from the limitations of what we want to see, we enter into a more spacious and intimate relationship with our visual world. As our openness and receptivity continue to expand, we can feel the heartbeat and breath of our perceptions. The texture of our experience becomes delicate, transitory, ephemeral. Because we have developed the ability to be still without bias or judgment, we can express the subtlety of this experience with our camera.

Methana
Methana is a beautiful peninsula in the Saronic Gulf. It is worth exploring the surrounding. Beaches, a hot spring, wonderful hikes, the volcano, little villages, archeological sites. Epidaurus is about 50 km away. Please do this before or after the workshop. Make sure you have enough time to go for adventures.
We expect that you are really there and available as part of the group during the workshop.
