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 of Photography classes are here!

Hi, I’ve finally put together the schedule for the latest Inner Path classes for the months of June and July, 2010!

I invite you to Houston, Texas to join me in:

1.     “The Inner Path of Photography”
Bring the magic back to your shooting, and learn something about yourself in the process.
There’s a Saturday class, an evening 3 night class, and even a 3-session morning class!

2.     “Photo Project Coaching – Group”
Do you have a photography project or goal that you keep on intending to reach, but you’re having trouble moving it along? Over three meetings with a group of kindred spirits, I’ll help you start or move your project along. 3 evening sessions, with an option to continue.

3.     “I’m Finally Doing Something With These Pictures!”
How long have you been intending to organize your photos into something tangible, instead of having them hanging in your computer folders, or on a photo website? It will be a fun Saturday afternoon…

4.     “Personal Muse and Project Coach”
Let me meet with you and help inspire you in your creative project. I have special expertise in the art of being a muse! and can lift whatever it is that’s keeping you stuck and send you on your way…I’m also available for project feedback and help in how to sequence, edit, choose your direction. (Will share muse secrets…)

Interested? I hope so! Would love to see you here.

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.

SEPTEMBER, 2009

“THE INNER PATH OF PHOTOGRAPHY”
Intensive Seminar

September 8, 15, 22, 29, 2009 (4 Tuesdays), 6:15 pm – 8:30 pm
Houston, TX (Montrose area, location upon registration)
Fee: $150.00

“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.

“Introduction to the Inner Path of Photography”, Saturday, August 22, 2009

This will be a really interesting class…an “appetizer” for the intensive “Inner Path of Photography” 4-week seminar that will held in September…register now!

“Introduction to  the Inner Path of Photography”
Saturday, August 22, 1:00 – 4:00 PM (location to be sent upon registration, Houston, Texas, Montrose area)
Fee $45.00. This class requires pre-registration by Wednesday, August 19th. If space is available, drop-in fee is $60.00.

For photographers as well as spiritual seekers, this afternoon seminar will give participants a “taste” of the 4 week intensive seminar that I’ll be offering in the fall.

In the tradition of the famous photographer Minor White, this class is for those who want to explore more deeply the intuitive, mystical part of photography, and through this process, improve their photography as well as discover more about themselves.

Instead of worrying about aperture, using the right lens, or having correct composition, you’ll begin to learn about resonance, inner knowing, how you make choices, and what keeps you from “taking the shot”…in photography and in life.

Apply what you learn to your photographic process and become a better photographer; apply it to your life process and create a better life. All that is required for this intro class is your curiosity, openness, and a camera.

To register for “Introduction to the Inner Path of Photography”
or for further information, please contact me at heidi@straubephoto or through the Contact Heidi section of my website,  or 713.521.1676.
