Wake up to the delight of your everyday world with visual exercises and playful photographic assignments. Discover the beauty of the ordinary world with an open heart, a calm mind and awake eyes aligned. Learn how to photograph in a simplified manner with your camera and the Miksang principles.

With talks, Q&A, examples, exercises, photographic assignments and each day ends with the image review.
