Exploring Perception: through Meditation & Photography

  • De Roos Pieter Cornelisz Hooftstraat 183 Amsterdam

Meditation and photography share the same goal. To capture the freshness of the present moment. To find beauty in our everyday experience. To change the way we see the world.

This day-long workshop begins with a grounding in the practice of meditation, suitable for both experienced meditators and those who have never tried before.

After exploring how to use our sense of sight as a support for meditation, we will head out into the world to integrate that into our everyday experience with our cameras.

The day will include plenty of time for discussion, clarification and sharing our photographs, and we will end with a final meditation session.

 

What people have said about previous workshops:

"The workshop was very a wonderful way to perceive the world in a different way. The way you are assisted in the workshop is very inspiring. Beautiful meditation and exercises."

"This was a beautiful experience, bringing fresh inspiration how to see and how to take photographs, thank you for your heartwarming way of sharing your knowledge!"

"A real mind opener on how to look around you and capture what you experience in the present moment. Had a lovely day with like-minded people."

"A must to attend the workshop."

"10 out of 10!"

And, this is a blog by a previous participant (in both Dutch & English), describing her experience of the workshop.

 

Please bring a digital camera (or camera phone) and make sure you know how to use at least the automatic function, as the focus of the day is on being and seeing rather than technical instruction.

The workshop will be led by Kimberly Poppe and held in English. 

Lunch is not included, but we will have a good break where people can have lunch out either as a group or individually. 

Spaces are limited to ensure an enjoyable interactive experience.
