With Effortless Beauty, Julie DuBose brings a new perspective to photography. She talks in an intimate way not just about how we express our experience with our camera, but about a whole new and fresh way to experience our visual world altogether. She guides us through the process of seeing without our usual habitual ways of experiencing what we see, so that we can have vivid, mind-stopping visual perceptions, and express those perceptions exactly as we see them.
Julie DuBose has been a practitioner of Miksang Contemplative Photography since 1998. She studied with Michael Wood, the founder of the Miksang Training course of study and practice, and began teaching courses with him in 2005. Together they have developed the Miksang Training curriculum and have taught in North America and Europe.
In 2009 Julie co-founded The Miksang Institute for Contemplative Photography in Boulder, Colorado. In addition to courses held in various locations in the US and Canada, each summer The Miksang Institute hosts a three week intensive course of study on the principles and practice of contemplative photography.
