There is nothing else in the whole wide world quite like this!

Inspired by The Four Foundations of Mindfulness (from 2500 years ago) and the modern application of mindfulness to support us in stressful times (the MBSR - mindfulness based stress reduction). Part 1 of this fresh and innovative course will cover three key topics:

Clear Seeing - This topic is all about turning photography into a mindful practice. I will share a Four Stage Seeing Practice that will develop your ability to use what you see as an anchor, to bring you totally back to the moment. This will develop your ability to see everything that is front of you. Yes, everything. Just like a camera does. Oh, did I mention that you will also learn how to see like a camera! And you will discover the barriers that can get in the way of clear seeing.

Photo Thinking - This topic will support your development as a photographer. Offering practices that support your journey to photographic brilliance, allowing you to hold all the technical and compositional knowledge and skills gently, whilst being rooted in the moment and seeing the photographic opportunities.

Mindful Attitudes - This topic is an introduction to ten attitudes that support the development of a mindful life. Each mindful attitude is described and then is applied to photography. A Mindful Photography Practice is provided to help you develop each attitude, and to support your personal and photographic development.

What does each topic include?

There are 2 Modules in each Topic - that's 6 modules in all.

Each module includes videos, slideshows and Mindful Photography Practices.

There are 20 Mindful Photography Practices all together. These photography activities will help you to learn and develop mindfulness and photography skills, and compliment the videos and slideshows. Every Mindful Photography Practice can be done many times. They truly are mindful practices that will help you develop as a photographer and in life!

Each Mindful Photography Practice will result in you creating some fabulous photos which you will then share with the Course Community in our private Facebook group. I will comment on your photos and look forward to discussing your experiences with you in the group. This is a fabulous support for everyone who enrolls on the course, providing guidance,discussion and contact with like minded people all over the world!

There are 3 eBooks too! One for each topic- with the whole text, illustrative photos and the mindful photography practices.

Over the last twelve years I have developed a style and method of photography that is rooted in mindfulness. The journey to this place has been shaped by life events that have led to an exploration of what it means to be alive and paying attention.

My approach to mindfulness through photography is structured around the Four Foundations of Mindfulness (being aware of your sensations, your thoughts, your feelings and how you are living right now.) I am also influenced by the modern application of mindfulness to stress reduction, as developed by Jon Kabat Zinn.
