The Inner Path of Photography

We yearn for the taste of the sacred…and through our cameras discover it, the world, and ourselves.

“Moments of Awe…30 Days”

Life is filled with many moments of beauty,
filling us with the awe of being alive.

Come join me in “Moments of Awe…30 Days” 

I invite you to post, once a day for 30 days,
something in your day that uplifts you, has happened to you,
or that you’ve captured through your art. 

Postings can be a photograph, painting, a phrase or quote,
an observation, a poem you’ve written…
all in response to your day. 

The daily practice of “Moments of Awe” is to remind us each day
of the small and large joys that are given to us –
and will allow us to deepen and make real
our connection to love and soulful living. 

If you can post each day for 30 days, you will have built
a beautiful foundation for living in awe,
seeing and holding this feeling more and more easily. 

If you’re a photographer, artist, or writer,
posting each day will deepen your practice.

Allowing yourself to be spontaneous,
non-attached to perfection,
and calling on spirit each day, 
will result in your connecting even more
with all areas of your essence,
and creating the art that will inspire others. 

Let’s share the miracle and mystery of our lives together.
I invite you to the practice of living your life –
creating your art –
from the place of Awe.  

“Moments of Awe…30 Days” starts on Thursday, August 1 and ends Friday August 30. This is a free Facebook Group experience.

A Note from Heidi:

August finds me ready to try some new Inner Path experiences – and engage others in the fun. “Moments of Awe…30 Days” was inspired from my own delight in “capturing the awe” of my days and the need to my work more actively. I love being with others who feel the magic of life, so using the expansive connections of technology, I’m inviting all to experiment new ways of connection with me.

I’m starting with a Facebook group to try out the concept – but will look forward to offering other ways that I have in mind to dance together. Stay tuned! This first step is a reflection of not waiting for the perfect platform, or spending 6 months (too long!) putting the pieces together, in order to share my inspirations and ways of living life now.

Send me a note anytime! Let me know what you’re yearning for as you create your life and your art. Let’s enjoy living from the soul together.

“My life is a study in living with impermanence –
each day brings its own subtle or dramatic changes.The world is my studio.”

I love my work! Class #4 – Inner Path of Photography

Inspiring…

Class #4 – “The Inner Path of Photography” – last Tuesday…
Students shared the images they made from their personal photo shoot after doing the “Shooting from Resonance” exercises from class.

Part of the homework challenge: Photographers were allowed to make only ten images – so shooting had to be thoughtful, deliberate,
truly in alignment with their feelings and intentions.

10 images were then edited down to 5 – attention to the very best. Slideshows were presented, with interesting discussions about the images,
the story, sequencing, inspiration.

Bonus: Now I want to go to the Galapagos Islands!
Plus: An unusual “tiny story” about having a home in the neighborhood
of a small-town private airport.
Have you ever parked your plane in your driveway?

Next week: “Go Wild!”

I love my work! Class #3

A winter sunset at First Encounter Beach, Cape Cod Massachusetts. Chunks of ice are scattered on the beach, with a row of snow where the tide withdrew; reflections of pink-edged clouds are seen in the water of the flats.

So wonderful…

I taught Class #3 of “The Inner Path of Photography” yesterday
at Cotuit Center for the Arts, Cape Cod, Massachusetts.

Students shared their homework of creating a “tiny story” book
from five of their images, complete with title, intro page, end page.

Every piece was from the heart, unique, entertaining, educational,
(who knew these things about bees and honey?!) and a joy to experience.

Fabulous!

Next week: Shooting from “Resonance.”
