A Quote from Julie on the nature of Miksang Photography:
“To me the path of Miksang is about uncovering truth, the truth of pure perception in our moment to moment experience. We see something penetrating, something pure and self-existing, and then we have the opportunity to express that perception without making anything up. We can be totally honest about what we saw. In that moment of staying with the perception, we hang out in the push and pull of wanting to manipulate it. But that all dissolves and is cut when we press down and feel the shutter click. It is the joy of letting go.”
