Miksang: contemplative photography.
Miksang is a celebration of the senses — of perception — of the moment as it is. What I love about practicing Miksang is how easy it is to get going — all you need is a camera of any sort (I generally use the camera on my mobile phone). And what I love about looking at miksang is how they wake me up to the details and extraordinariness of life. Even the most mundane situations can be the subject of miksang.
“Miksang, at its most basic level, is concerned with uncovering the truth of pure perception. We see something vivid and penetrating, and in that moment we can express our perception without making anything up—nothing added, nothing missing. Totally honest about what we see—straight shooting.” — Miksang Institute for Contemplative Photography
