While exploring some of the PNW's most beautiful areas, we'll practice a variety of meditative and mindful photography techniques that enhance your life and your photography. Learn to use your camera as a tool to quiet the busy mind by focusing on the beauty of the present moment from an entirely new perspective.

Accessible to all levels of photographer, even those who rarely take photos. Cell phone cameras are encouraged! This is NOT a technical "how to use a camera" workshop. It's about gaining real world techniques to dive deeply into the present moment, allowing your photos to evolve organically.


Presented by Dara Wagner of The Mindful Lens, @the.mindful.lens  and Diana Scheel of Cat in the Moon Photography,

Dara is a Reiki Master specializing in meditative and other transformative processes. She developed The Mindful Lens technique during a three year experiment in ways to become acutely focused on the present moment and say "yes" to life.

Diana Scheel is a professional photographer on a personal journey of self awareness and transformation. She has traveled all over the world with her camera and specializes in portrait and fine art photography.
