Flow-tography:Introduction to Mindful Photography Seeking Beauty Finding Self.

 Flow-tography:Introduction to Mindful Photography Seeking Beauty Finding Self.

This one day program begins at the Charles River Bistro/Cafe. 1 David G. Mugar Way at 9:00AM. Details provided once you RSVP.

The Flow-tography method helps you take your photos from like to love. You experience an immediate flash of recognition as your inner and outer life experience connect and you click the shutter. It all starts from an inner stance of stillness and results in an image that will be a joy forever. 

You are invited to discover a playful path to mindfulness through photography. Flow-tography offers a way to see more deeply. Go beyond the obvious to the more subtle, intimate visual qualities of your life.  It is not just about "getting the shot", it is about experiencing the moments of life that make us feel awake, alive and creative. All it requires is our full attention and slowing down to be still, from the inside out. You need to compose your self before you compose the shot.
