Miksang Contemplative Photography Practice

 

Opening a “Good Eye” to the The Phenomenal World

Miksang is a Tibetan word that means “good eye.” Our world is good, just as it is, inherently rich and vivid. Working with the synchronization of eye and mind, the practice of contemplative photography allows us to tune into the “ordinary magic” of the phenomenal world—the world of things as structured by human experience and understanding.

“Everything is a symbol of itself,” commented the late meditation master (artist and scholar), Chögyam Trungpa, who originally presented the Dharma Art teachings on the nature of perception and ordinary magic, the foundation for Miksang practice. When one connects with pure perception there is no struggle in making a heartfelt and brilliant photographic image that one can share with others.
