More information/ Brochure pdf


Come and explore the art  of photography as contemplative practice to cultivate sacred seeing. Participants will take/use photographs to integrate images with journal keeping, to deepen the way of seeing the holy beneath the surface of things. This practice may be used as a creative way to document one’s story, to process a loss or to honor/celebrate a particular experience. Instruction will include prompts, scripture, and poetry for photographic exploration.

You will be encouraged to share your work with the group, and will leave with the beginnings of a photo journal.
Emphasis is on the process, rather than on the technical aspects of photography. An IPhone is sufficient for taking pictures (no fancy equipment is necessary). Also, please bring a blank journal to class, for writing exercises. As long as weather cooperates, we will go outside to take pictures.
