“Miksang is for me joy of life. It makes my world much more colorful even on gray days. Since I experience this kind of perception, I also like rainy days and see colored reflections in puddles of water. Miksang is deceleration, perception, mindfulness, deepening. It is relaxing, fresh and clear, surprising, funny and touching.
In 2012 I attended my first Miksang course in Cologne and met my teacher Hiltrud Enders. At that time I still thought I would attend a photography course. In the meantime I have learned a lot about this way of fresh perception and attended many Miksang courses, some of them several times. In 2021 I completed the teacher training with Michael Wood and Julie DuBose. Miksang has become a part of my life.
Miksang grounds and calms me. How much I realized when I once spilled the coffee grounds in the kitchen. Instead of getting angry I thought, “Oh, what a beautiful pattern.” And took a picture. When I’m stressed at work and can’t remember where my head is, “Slow down, pause.” Photograph. Miksang is everywhere, in my everyday life.”
