The Inner Path of Photography

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

Inner Path Photo Seminar at Cotuit Arts

Discover the inner experience of photography with me!

Registration is now open for my 6-week seminar 
“The Inner Path of Photography” 

at the Cotuit Center for the Arts, Cotuit, Massachusetts

January 8, 2019 – February 12, 2019
9:00 AM – 12:00 PM

I invite you to join me in an exploration of the joy and mysteries of being a photographer; to deepen your connection to that knowing, special part of you that still believes in the wonder of the world; and to help you confidently create the images that express what you feel and truly want to “say.”

Drawing on the tradition of Minor White, techniques and philosophies from psychology, Zen, and other contemplative practices, exploring other artist insights on the creative process, and reflecting on our own images and reasons for being drawn to photography – we’ll connect with inner spirit, honor our awareness, feel, shoot, and create – photographs that reflect what we truly want to “say,” and lives of deeper connection.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have!
It will be a pleasure to have you in class.

A note from Heidi:

Hello, Kindred Spirits,

Yes, it’s been a while…and so nice to be back and sharing with you again.

Some have been following me on Instagram and Facebook, but if you’ve been away too…welcome back! I’m glad you’re here.

This summer I was immersed in many beautiful places – living and working, exploring, creating, meeting new people, reconnecting with those I’ve loved for years. And enjoying the usual unexpected adventures, of course!

St. Petersburg, FL and Taos, NM were my main homes; Durham, NC, Houston, TX and New York, NY (with stops along the way, yes, I was driving!) added spice. 

And now, as I write this, I’m back for my fifth winter in beautiful Cape Cod (Eastham), Massachusetts. It’s nice to settle in…

Soon you’ll see my new website, with more inspiration, beauty and experiences for you…the culmination of thoughts and dreams from a summer on the road.

But today, I send you greetings from the heart. 

May you take some time to breathe, rest, enjoy the beauty that surrounds you.

I’m holding the glory of love for you…May you receive it.

Heidi

I thank you

Please join me at the reception for
the
Cape Cod Art Association’s
special exhibition
“All New England.”

My image

“The Bath”

has been chosen
as one of the celebrated images.

I’ve shared with you
expansive outside beauty…
the changing flow of water on the marsh,
the tree alive through winds upon the ocean bluffs
mystery and intimacy deep within the blizzard…

I now offer you a different view…
the gift of inner silence, peace and nurturing
Light, reflections, Love
All that I feel deeply at my winter Cape Cod home.

A breath. A sigh.
May you also feel the Enchantment
always present in our everyday lives.

Reception, October 19, 5:00 PM – 7:00 PM 

 Exhibition,
October 16 – November 12, 2017

Stop.

Breathe deeply.

Allow the peace within.

You are still a sacred being
Here to celebrate life.

At this moment – and throughout your day today –

Know that simply being you

Being Love 

makes a difference.

Relax. It is a noble act to share your pleasure.
