Miksang, or “good eye” in Tibetan, is a process of learning to synchronize mind and body, allowing one to open to the world without labeling or evaluation. The first level of training in Miksang contemplative photography purifies our visual perception by working directly with the elements of the visual field: color, light, form, and space. No previous photographic experience is necessary. Meet certified Miksang trainer, Denise Bossarte and see what this discipline is all about.
Born in 1967 in the US Midwest, Denise has spent her life pursuing two loves - science and art. Denise has several advanced degrees in science: B.A. in Chemistry, Ph.D. in Molecular Biology, and M.S. in Computer Science. Although science provides for a degree of creativity, Denise always found a need for deeper expression of her way of relating to and seeing the word through poetry, short stories, and most particularly photography. As a photographer, Denise has a passion for finding beauty in unique and unusual places and uses her photography to share those experiences with others. Denise’s abstract photographs are ones discovered in the world as created by nature rather than by her design. Denise is a Certified Miksang Contemplative Photography teacher and has been teaching Miksang in Houston since her arrrival in TX in 2012.
