In Contemplative Photography Level 2, we continue our exploration of connecting directly to our world, continuing to expand on the basic elements of the Level I assignments. We allow the people and things of our world to touch us, without separation. This is a practice of the heart, an opening to the phenomenal world, a communion with connection. We see what we see, and we take our photographs, exploring all the while the connection between mind, body, and world.

The assignments in Level 2 explore the diverse possibilities of contemplative vision. We’ll make beautiful images around Sentient Beings, Landscape, Haiku, and more.

Pre-Registration Required. Registration includes Zoom Link and access to private FB group.
Registration limited to 12 participants!

Testimonials from Students:

“The Miksang (Contemplative Photography) Classes by Denise forever changed my photography. The step-by-step process awakened a new perspective where my subject is well defined. If you have thought that you like taking photos of everything but are not sure what your photos convey, then the Miksang journey is for you.” -Saundra Salter

“I absolutely LOVED the Contemplative Photography Level 1 class with Denise Bossarte. The class provided me with weekly prompts to deep dive into creativity and contemplative practice. It was the creative juice I needed to get going again after putting my own art making on hold for a few months. Having a supportive, creative community to experience it with was priceless!” -Rev. Jen Hutchins

“I enjoyed the Contemplative Photography class tremendously.  Denise is a professional teacher, well prepared, and she shared a lot of information with us.  At the same time, she did a wonderful job of helping me feel connected to the community.  This is a new contemplative experience for me and I am inspired and excited about trying it out.” -Rev Barbara Hadley
