Faculty: John Barclay and Flint Sparks
Maximum Class Size: 18
Join John Barclay and Flint Sparks on the magic island of Molokai for a 7-day retreat as they teach both the technique and the practice of contemplative photography.
Seeing Deeply is a learned discipline and takes practice. Our intent is to encourage you to enter the embodied practices of mindful photography throughout the week during which we will learn to deepen our capacity for intimacy with our subjects, with our equipment and technique, and with each other. Seeing Deeply is an invitation to show up more fully in each moment, to be captured by the beauty of the world, and to become more skillful in the art of photography. We might be so bold as to say that this is an invitation to photography as spiritual practice.
We will photograph the highest sea cliffs in the world, wander through rain forests, swim in the warm waters of secluded beaches, meet both sunrises and sunsets, all as ways to be silent, still and blessed. We will explore the real reasons why we photograph and discover new ways to see more fully and to live more vibrantly. We will live together for the week as a family of photographers opening our hearts and minds to both images and insights.
