Online Miksang Course | Getting Started
Learn how to look from inner stillness, see fresh, discover everyday beauty and improve your pictures with genuine photography
Miksang means 'Good Eye' and is a contemplative form of photography through which you can learn to recognize your pure perceptions.
You look with your eyes and seeing happens in your heart and from your heart. This is a tangible bodily experience.
If you stabilize a calm mind, you free up inner space for uninhibited, engaged and curious looking. Free from dividing into 'like' & 'don't like'.
With a calm mind you recognize how you see something from your heart. Then you can stand still and come to a complete stop!
With a compact camera, system camera, SLR camera, smartphone; no matter which one, you can learn to shoot calm, precise & simple.
Follow your inspiration and start now! Charge you batteries, listen to the instructions and go out with the first Miksang photo assignment.
