What is VisionQuest PhotoJourney
Awakening your Unique Creative Expression
VisionQuest Photography has emerged out of Shane's 25 years of study and practice in the healing arts, yoga, meditation and his love of nature photography. VisionQuest photoJourney has been distilled into an extraordinary creative teaching that allows photographers and artists a radically different way of approaching their experience of photography. Simply put, the practice is meant to "Awaken your unique creative expression".
The practice is one of learning to become fully present to all the creative faculties available to us in any given moment, many of which go completely un-noticed unless we learn to recognize and attune to them. Imagine a completely harmonious experience of your mind, body and soul, one in which your thoughts, feelings and actions unify seamlessly as your greatest creative expression moment to moment. Here is some of what you will learn:
• Quieting the mind to overcome distracting thoughts and focus on important creative goals
• Learn to temporarily suspend pre-visualizations recognizing them as potential distractions to what is truly present
• Learn to powerfully open and direct your awareness in ways that allow you to see and experience the larger whole without missing smaller equally important details for creative composition.
• Clearly recognize and attune to the emotional energetic dimensions of your creative experience, without becoming fixated on merely the external forms of what you are photographing.
• Access both the technical and creative hemispheres of your brain simultaneously.
• Accessing greater freedom and function within your breath and body.
• Break the habit of visual dominance.
• Learn to awaken, align and unify all your sensory faculties as powerful creative tools.
• recognize and understand the biases of your mind that prevent you from noticing what is truly present moment to moment.
