I have always been slightly obsessed with those moments of “reality” and the idea that they could be less erratic and more dependable, which is part of what has led me to the practice of meditation.
Recently, I have been playing around with contemplative photography inspired by a previous post by Jeremy Tattersall where he describes the book, The Practice of Contemplative Photography by Andy Karr and Michael Wood. Along with being great fun, this is a real practice of integrating meditation into everyday life—off the cushion and walking around in the world. The practice is to see and photograph the world in fresh ways, to reveal richness and beauty that is normally hidden from view, to see clearly and make images based on fresh perceptions. It is something anyone can try. They also have a website called Seeing Fresh which essentially describes the practice itself and has galleries, assignments, and the possibility for you to submit your own photos.
How do you integrate the practice of meditation into your daily life?
