Looking and seeing
Mastering uninhibited looking And fresh seeing in the midst of your ongoing daily life. Having stabilised openness at all times and all places, and the Miksang Method embodied
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 giving genuine photographic expression.
Combining the simplicity and the complexity of the your visual world, acknowledging the unfolding of your flashes of perception in the full visual spectrum that surrounds you.
What-Is shows itself as the infinite unfolding of your everyday beauty, always and already present. When fully dissolving photographic ambition you make room for 'fresh'.
Exploring in-depth the visual richness of the ordinary world, itis simplicity and its complexity.
With layers, paste-ups, juxtapositions and reflections and moments.
After all your previous Miksang retreats and classes this is your graduation as Miksang Master. This 'end' is the unending beginning of your very personal Miksang Journey.
What has been helpful on your Miksang Journey can also become an obstacle when thinking and discerning in terms of 'this is Miksang & this isn't Miksang'. Free from being against or for something, you land in the state of seeing with no other reference than being open and available, noticing what strikes you, and allowing it fully in.
Being aware of your openness and hesitations at the same time, choosing being fully confident.
In and after these 4 days you come to the intention of no intention. With your camera as a medium and state of being of seeing fresh you further crystallise clear being, clear seeing and embodying being receptive and perceptive, giving genuine creative photographic expression.
One moment at a time - unbound, free & joyful!

“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
