Monthly Mindfulness and Photography is a monthly series with Jess Benjamin that will explore the connection between making pictures and being mindful of what meditation teacher Stephen Batchelor calls “the everyday sublime.” Through photographic and meditative activities, participants will examine ways they can use photography as a tool to be present, and relatedly, how establishing a mindfulness practice can lead to being a more thoughtful, engaged, and dynamic photographer. This session is designed to give participants a basic understanding of mindfulness meditation, its relationship to photography, and the tools necessary to deepen the practices of both. This course is open to everyone of all ages and experience levels in both photography and mindfulness.
