MIKSANG 2: Connecting & Fields of Perception

Now we have experienced seeing beyond our naming and labelling, and trusting our inherent openness of looking and seeing, we continue our visual journey and connect deeper to the unchanging ever present presence of things as they are. We exploring our heartfelt connection by stepping into fields of perception, one at a time; discovering thatness, and developing further unmovingness and equanimity.


MIKSANG 3: Moments & Visual Haiku

After having immersed in the always present presence of things as they are we continue our Miksang Journey with ever chancing moments. What a moment defines is impermanence, always changing, nothing is ever the same; a perception dawns, resides for a while and dissolves. We combine exploring the directness of our perceptual experiences with Japanese Haiku poetry; journeying from ‘thatness’ to ‘moment’.


MIKSANG 4: Deep Looking

Space as from and form as space, and phenomena/appearances/energy in space: we open ourself fully in the expansiveness of space in and explore inner and outer space and form. Super relaxed photographic and awake expression!


MIKSANG 5: Infinite Unfolding

We let go of our Miksang habits and Miksang limitations which we have become familiar with so far and practiced. Now we stabilize ourselves fully in the infinite unfolding of perceptions, completely knowing ourselves and our camera as a means to express our full heart connection. In the midst of all complexity, regardless of visual and inner complexity we connect and allow the ever present beauty.
