For a more detailed description about what we will be exploring in the Making Contact Workshop go to:

In this workshop we prepare ourselves to see and recognize when we have a fresh perception and how to understand it and express it clearly with our camera. We learn to develop a sense of equanimity about what we see. In Making Contact we work with our resistance to seeing without an agenda and our struggle to make our world conform to what we want to see. We discover that real seeing takes place on the other side of boredom. As we go beyond resistance and boredom, we discover a world of floating wonder for us to play in.

This course is an excellent opportunity for new participants to learn the fundamentals of Miksang Practice. How can we see our world without concept? How can we use our camera to express the joy and delight of seeing our world as it manifests to us in its pure form?

In the Making Contact Workshop we introduce the first two sections of the primary practice of Miksang called “Settling Into Awareness”: Recognizing Direct Perception, and Deep Noticing.
