How to See Freshly: Exploring Perception through Mindful Photography - Level 1

With Kimberly Poppe

Capture the freshness of the present moment.
Find beauty in your everyday experience.
Change the way you see the world.

In this special course, led by Kimberly Poppe, meditation teacher and photographer, we will explore how we see, experience and relate to ourselves & the world. Plus, you’ll leave with some beautiful photographs in the process! 

Seeing and thinking are very different. Thinking relates to the world through ideas and mental images. Seeing perceives things directly, just as they are. We usually navigate our lives by thinking about where we are going, where we have been, what we are doing, what we hope for, and what we fear. This inner monologue overshadows most of our experience. Every now and then there are gaps in the flow of discursiveness where fresh perceptions shine through, but generally we gloss over them quite quickly. Learning to recognize and value these moments of fresh sense perception is what we will explore together.*

Each course will run for six weeks and it includes:

  • the actual weekly class offering an opportunity to explore the perception focus for the week, time to meditate together as a group, as well as space to share photographs and experiences.
  • a photography focus for week in-between the classes including access to a private Flickr group to share images.

Group size

The course will be intimate in size (max 12 people) so there will be lots of opportunity for personal attention.
No prior experience in meditation or photography is necessary, just an interest, curiosity and a digital camera (or camera phone)!
