10am – 1pm Mindfulness Through the Lens

Mindfulness through the LensExperience 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. In the process, your photographs will improve organically.

About Your Mindfulness Leaders

Your guides for this mindfulness exploration are Dara Wagner of @The.Mindful.Lens and Diana Scheel of Cat in the Moon Photography.

Dara Wagner is a Reiki Master specializing in meditative and other transformative processes. She developed The Mindful Lens technique organically during a three-year experiment in ways to become acutely focused on the present moment and saying “yes” to life.

Diana Scheel is a professional photographer on a personal journey of self awareness and transformation. She has traveled all over the world with her camera and specializes in portrait and fine art photography.
