The Inner Path of Photography – intensive seminar, starts September 8th
Hi…well, the intro class is over, and now it’s time for the big stuff!
4 Tuesdays in September…nine hours of learning, exploring, and becoming even more adept at listening to your inner voice, matching it with your outer vision, and creating the images and life that bring you joy and satisfaction.
I’m really enjoying sharing my expertise that integrates my background in photography, psychotherapy, and meditative and healing arts; let me share the magic with you.
“THE INNER PATH OF PHOTOGRAPHY”
September 8, 15, 22, 29, 2009 (4 Tuesdays), 6:15 pm – 8:30 pm
Houston, TX (Montrose area, location upon registration)
“Each artist going in his own direction at some time walks on water.”
– Minor White, Photographer
What is the inner experience of photography? Deep, spiritual, rarely discussed…it is what seduces us and send us out to shoot again and again. We yearn for the taste of the sacred…and through our cameras discover it, the world, and ourselves.
This class is for those who want to explore more deeply the intuitive, mystical part of their photography practice, work with personal blocks to full creative expression, as well as learn more about themselves and life challenges and choices.
Drawing on the tradition of the photographer Minor White, and using techniques and philosophies from Zen, psychology, and other contemplative and healing practices, we’ll come to understand more fully this silent experience, apply it to our art, and enhance the quality of both our photography and life.
Attention, resonance, the “still point”…choices, perfectionism, the “click,”…openness to experience, making art vs. being in the flow, embracing the creative process: these are some of the tools that we’ll explore as you build your inner photography practice and improve your outer resulting images.
As you more deeply understand and work with your inner artistic process, you’ll also see how life parallels art, and through this increased awareness, learn how to more easily dance with your own life challenges and decisions.
Class includes lecture, exposure to diverse photographic expressions & philosophy, meditative and other experiential, outside applications (homework), shooting and sharing of photographs.
