Miksang is a form of contemplative photography based on visual perception of the everyday world as it truly is, rather than as we imagine it to be. Instead of seeing ‘objects’ we see colour, texture and pattern, light and shadow, form and space. The essential nature of simple, ordinary things is revealed, appreciated and expressed.

Galleries from the Miksang Training Courses

We have attended a number of Miksang courses in the Netherlands and Spain run by Hèlen Vink. The courses provide training in Miksang, proceeding through the five standard levels established by Michael Wood, Hèlen’s teacher and one of the founders of Miksang as a dharma art. Each level has a number of assignments within it, and the galleries contain the photos from these training assignments. Some photos do not conform to the assignment but we have included them.
