Opening the Good Eye-Boulder, Colorado. November 20-23, 2014

"The Miksang journey has been an amazing experience for me. My perception of the world is so different now; fully rounded, more acute and so intimate! It’s as if the filter coating my eyes and mind has disappeared to reveal the absolute richness and simple beauty of the world. I am infinitely grateful for having taken these courses." ~ Gilbert.

Miksang Contemplative Photography

What is Miksang?

Miksang was originally inspired by the teachings on perception and expression of the Tibetan Meditation Master and Artist, Chögyam Trungpa. With our eye, mind, and heart fully unified and engaged in the present moment, we can see the world as it manifests to us and express the experience of seeing in this way with our camera.


The Training Process

Learn Miksang

Learn Miksang

The entire course of study involved in Miksang is simply to take a natural situation, which is to see clearly, which is inherent to everyone, and to experience it as already basically pure and clean. We then apply discipline to keep it that way. That’s all there is.
