Cultivating Clarity, Receptivity and Joy With a Camera
Saturday, October 4, 8:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.
Rural College Grove, TN
Registration deadline, Friday, September 26
Please join us in a beautiful rural setting for a day of mindfulness as we combine meditation and the practice of contemplative photography. We will use our cameras as a means to reflect our awareness of this moment in its ever changing forms. This approach often yields unexpected and remarkable results that differ from conventional shots. There’s no need for expensive equipment or technical knowledge, just a willingness to meet the moment in an open and receptive state. A simple, yet profound joy often arises in this alliance of mind and heart, camera and surroundings.
Led by meditation teacher and artist Lisa Ernst, the workshop is suitable to beginning and experienced meditators. In addition to several photography sessions, the workshop will include meditation, silence and group interaction. The retreat site, about 35 minutes from downtown Nashville, includes wooded hills, fields, rock formations and interesting structures.
The fee is on a sliding scale from $75 – $100. Two reduced fee slots are available for those who need financial assistance.
