Mary [Magdalene] said, “Lord, I saw you today in a vision. He answered me, ‘Blessed are you for not wavering at seeing me. For where the mind [νοῦς] is, there is the treasure.’”

Gospel of Mary Magdalene 10,10-11.

In our first Contemplative Photography group practice, we explored the ways in which we can see in “every common bush” the presence of the divine; how we can use photography as a contemplative practice. See the lesson video below to re-visit the lesson or to catch up before our next group practice.

Our Guide:
Berto Gándara-Perea – is an Episcopal priest and lives with his husband, a psychotherapist and also a priest, with their amazing three -legged dog Ava in beautiful Orcas Island, Washington. He is currently the rector at Emmanuel church on Orcas. He is also a novice in the Communion of the Mystic Rose. Berto is passionate about contemplative practices and photography, in that order! He started with photography with the first iPhone back in 2007. His passion soon led him to get some better tools in camera and in teachers to guide him in the craft and art of photography. He studied at PhotoManhattan and then at the International Center for Photography. He then approached photography from a Buddhist perspective through Miksang workshops in France with Helen Vink and in Boulder, CO with Michael Wood and Julie DuBose; as well as Vision Quest Photo Workshops with Douglas Beasley in the Badlands, South Dakota and Yunnan Province, China. He has also participated in a photo critique workshop with renown photographer and teacher Bruce Barnbaum. We encourage you to look up these great teachers and experiences!
