10am – 1pm Mindfulness Through the Lens at Meadowdale Beach Park

June 15 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm


Mindful PhotographyExperience the World from a New Perspective

In these workshops you’ll use your camera as a tool to quiet the busy mind by focusing on the exquisite beauty of the present moment. While exploring some of the PNW’s most striking scenery, we’ll practice a variety of mindfulness techniques, gently leading you into the art of seeing deeply. You’ll experience both the inner and outer world from a new perspective, leaving with tools that enhance your life and photography.

No Photography Experience Required

Accessible to all levels of photographer, even those who rarely take photos. Cell phone cameras are encouraged! This is NOT a technical “how to use a camera” workshop. It’s about gaining real world techniques to calm the busy mind and be present in the moment, allowing that your photographs will improve organically.
