Spend the weekend at Solitude on a photography retreat. Thomas Merton, Richard Rhor, Jon Kabat-Zinn, Jack Kornfield, Eckhart Tolle and photography were brought together by Bear and Sharon for a Mindfulness weekend.
The two facilitator worked amazingly well to introduce themes that had both a place in photography and spirituality. Sojme of the thoughts that resonated with me were”
“When you loose touch with your inner stillness, you loose touch with yourself. When you loose touch with yourself, you are lost in the world”
“Most of us have spent our lives caught up in plans, expectations, ambitions for the future, in regrets … about the past. When we come into the present, we begin to feel the life around us again, buut we also encounter whatever we have been avoiding.”
I spent my time trying to capture Cara on camera. She’s the best “living in the moment” practitioner that I know. You can see a few of her images on Flickr.
