Center for Creative Inquiry

The Art of Seeing

Using practices from Full Presence Mindfulness: A Pocket Companion, we learn a relaxed way of seeing that encourages intimacy with whatever appears in the field of experience. 

After a brief orientation to Full Presence Mindfulness, students will go on a walkabout and return with photographs to share. This class is a way to play with the openness of simply seeing.

Participants will receive a copy of Full Presence Mindfulness: A Pocket Companion. Students must provide their own camera or cell phone.

Note: this workshop is an in-person workshop taking place in Berkeley, California. This is not an online course.

Cost: $30
