2 Oct to 9 Oct 2020
Retreat Type: 

This retreat is about crafting a small number of images from a deep place of resonance between ourselves and our subject, supported by meditation and silence. We will focus on the importance of going beyond just looking, to really seeing with our whole heart, mind and body. We will absorb and come into relationship with the beautiful landscape of the glen before we try to capture it photographically whether in big views or in more intimate details. Using inspiration from Buddhist tradition and age old meditation techniques, we will set a tone for the retreat where stillness and awareness can naturally feed into the creative process.

For more information read the retreat information sheet.

Covid-19 update: We hope this retreat will be able to go ahead, however we cannot be clear how travel and social distancing guidance will evolve and what the effect of this will be on our ability to offer this retreat. We are therefore only taking bookings for a limited number of places on this retreat and limiting people to one retreat booking each during the period of restrictions so as to share out our resources as much as we can.  Please be aware that we cannot guarantee being able to run this retreat.  We'll be in touch 2-4 weeks ahead of the start date of the retreat to confirm whether it is going ahead.
