Your Miksang practice at home

To inspire yourself to go out and practice Miksang can be challenging when do you not have access to a Miksang group, or you miss a Miksang buddy, you cannot come to the Netherlands for a live Miksang Masterclass day, or join a Miksang Retreat.


So, now you can practice Miksang Photography at home or near you home. You connect with other Miksang practitioners and you do not need to travel!

Explore your pure perceptions and visual richness in your familiar surroundings, or wherever you are.

"When you’re photographing you’re not trying to push a point to explain something, to prove something. The first impression is central, the first glance is shock, surprise...it jumps at you. It comes by itself.


And poetry is the essence of everything."

Henri Cartier-Bresson

Interactive online Masterclass

To inspire yourself to actually practice Miksang at home, you start at home! In this personal, live and interactive way you can rekindle the Miksang spark, and deepen your Miksang practice and emphasize your fresh seeing.

The experience shows that every form of mindfulness-meditation practice needs practice. Just thinking about it or postponing it doesn't make practice. It is common that at times you don't feel like practicing Miksang photography as life or a lot of thinking simply takes over.

What to do? Reconnect!

In this interactive online webinar you have an actual Miksang practice day, connect and share with your European Miksang friends, make new Miksang friends and crystalize fresh seeing in your everyday surroundings. With 2 Zoom sessions and in between you practice the Miksang assignment and select your pictures.

All attention for the Miksang basics and myself

Every Masterclass we explore in-depth the 4 basics  of the Miksang practice and your personal Miksang practice:

1. Your State of Seeing - about pure perception, looking and seeing

2. The basics of being available and 'fresh' - about being awake, open in the here and now

3. The visual brilliance of everything - surrender to the idea of infinite perceptions

4. The Miksang Method - practice coming to a full stop, standing still, allowing, letting it in, looking deeply, applying the visual discernment, slowing down and giving genuine photographic expression


Together we also investigate questions that may resonate with you, such as:

  • What would I like to deepen?
  • What obstacles am I bumping into?
  • Do you keep on walking and let it go too often, when you feel a flash of perception,?
  • Do you not stop often enough or do you have a hard time coming to a full stop?
  • Do you no longer really feel being struck by a flash of perception and are you searching?
  • Have you lost your freshness?
  • Do you regularly think "I will take a picture come later, not now"
  • Do you often leave your camera at home?
  • You see fresh and you feel it but you notice that you often think "I don't have to take a picture of it" or " I have already taken a similar picture"?
  • Do you find yourself trapped in knowing what it is, opinions and fast judgements about what you see?
  • Associations is the first thing you experience and it is difficult to see beyond context and associations
  • Postponing the Miksang practice; when you have a day off, or you go away for a day or you resolve to "tomorrow or on holidays I'm really going to practice Miksang"?
  • Do you regularly think something like: "I'll shoot Miksang when there is more light" or "when it's not so cold" or "if it's less rainy" or..."?
  • Has your Miksang practice slipped away and would you like to restart?"
  • Have you slipped back into conventional shooting?
  • Do you photograph too often 'beautiful pictures' and do you find yourself explaining too often what you have photographed?
  • Is Miksang Photography primarily an outdoor activity for you? How do you also inspire yourself indoors at home, at your office, in your street?
  • What do you need to invite the fun back into your life. like you had with Miksang Photography in the very beginning?

"Just like that, something strikes you, out of nowhere, unexpectedly and suddenly.

Every jolt, every flash of perception - small or slightly larger - is your feast!

Stop, stand still fully and look deeper.

Your heart says more than a thousand words and whispers to you in the language of pure visual poetry."

Hèlen Vink
                   

Questions about the online Miksang Masterclass

What if I haven't practiced Miksang Photography for a long time? Can I join?

Yes, then especially you should join! Once you have been introduced to your fresh seeing, and practiced several assignments: the experience of fresh seeing will never leave your 'system'. However, to bring your experience of fresh into photographing is what needs to be practiced and that is what these Miksang Masterclass days are also for.

What equipment do I need?

You need a digital camera with charged batteries, either a compact or hybrid or reflex camera. You need access to internet for the online sessions, and a computer or laptop so you can join the morning session and the afternoon session.

When and at what time are the online sessions?

You can find the dates above this section. The Miksang Masterclass starts at 10am in the morning until +/- 11.30am. Then you go out and about with the Miksang assignment. We meet again online at 4.30pm in the afternoon. Then you have also selected your Miksang pictures.

What if I have to miss a Miksang Masterclass day?

That is unfortunate of course, because we would love to have you in the class, but it is not a problem at all because you can join the next Masterclass.

Do I need to follow all the scheduled dates?

No. Check if the already scheduled dates for the Miksang Masterclass fit in your schedule and put the dates that work for you in your calendar!

I am not familiar with an online class, how do I join?

Don't worry. Once you have booked a Miksang Masterclass you receive automatically a link and you just need to follow the steps. Make sure that for the first time you join the Miksang Masterclass, you have set up your computer with the software/system of Webinargeek a few days before or latest the day before.

Is the Miksang Masterclass live? Or can I follow it later?

The Miksang Masterclass is live and your attendance is required in the morning and in the afternoon. In between you practice the Miksang assignment and select your pictures. Also, you can purchase the recording of the day so you can follow it later in your own time. This means you have to buy a Masterclass day or use 1 of the 4 you already have purchased.

Do I need to be good with technical stuff?

Don't worry. You just need to follow the steps for Webinargeek to join the online Miksang Masterclass. In the afternoon you send your selection of pictures either with wetransfer.com to me or you show them online on your own computer during the review. I will guide you through these steps.

How long do I have access to the Miksang Masterclasses?

You can use your one day Masterclass for the first upcoming date, and you can use the 4 Masterclass days (3+1 for free) within 2 years. You can always purchase 1 or 4 new Masterclasses.
