Balancing sensing, feeling and thinking, being open to what resonates visually
The Art of Miksang
Be available to infinite perceptions, commit to genuine photographic expression
In the here and now with looking & seeing with your camera as mindfulness in action
Looking and seeing
Mastering uninhibited looking and fresh seeing in the midst of your ongoing daily life. Having stabilised your openness at all times and embodied the Miksang Method
The purpose of Miksang 'Good Eye' is looking and seeing with awake eyes, open heart and a still mind aligned. The meaning is to be open & enjoying the phenomenal world.
Feeling your way through your day to day world with the art of Miksang Photography, being confident about what visually resonates and genuine expression with your camera.
Combining the simplicity and the complexity of the your visual world, acknowledging the unfolding of your flashes of perception in the full visual spectrum surrounding you.
What-Is shows itself as the infinite unfolding of your everyday beauty, always and already present. When dissolving photographic ambition you make room for 'fresh'.
Exploring in-depth the visual richness of the ordinary world with layers, paste-ups, juxtapositions and reflections, and graduating as a Miksang Master. This 'end' is the beginning of your Miksang Journey.
Without restrictions, free from being against or for something, no other reference than being open and available -being aware of your openness and hesitations at the same time. With your camera as a medium and the Miksang Method as a guideline to form an equivalent for further crystalizing clear being, clear seeing and embodying being receptive and giving joyful genuine creative expression.
“It’s a question of paying more attention to the space that exists around us. In doing so, we develop a sense of confidence, confidence that space exists in front of our eyes and that it is not demanding anything. It’s a free world, a truly free world. Obviously, in handling our life, questions and hesitations come up constantly. They are like the blank sheet of paper, the canvas. Out of those hesitations, we begin to make a move.” — Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche
