Looking and Seeing: Introduction to Contemplative Photography

with John McQuade and Ray Ball

June 17-June 18

Shambhala Mississauga

Don’t miss this rare opportunity to explore this innovative yet accessible practice!
Learn to see the ordinary magic in your everyday world through Miksang photography, taught by experts John McQuade, a senior Shambhala teacher, and Ray Ball, a senior Zen practitioner. No photography experience is required, and everyone is welcome.
Like meditation, Miksang photography helps us synchronize body and mind.  “Miksang” means “good eye” in Tibetan, a contemplative practice for purifying our visual perception and learning to see the world directly, with no judgment or agenda.
This is a hands-on weekend workshop with talks, photographic exercises, image reviews, and more. Please bring a digital camera if you have one. If not, you can use the camera on your cellphone.

Registration is now open at Shambhala Mississauga.

John McQuade has been practicing Miksang photography more than 30 years, and is co-author of Looking and Seeing: A Contemplative Photography Source-book. His photographs have been exhibited in Toronto, Vermont, and Halifax. The principle Miksang photography teacher in Toronto, John is also curator of the Nalanda Gallery. He holds an M.A. and has taught sociology in universities and community colleges.
