A Contemplative Retreat to Star Island, August 30 - September 1, 2014

My Icon of Star Island - 2013
   My favorite contemplative photographer, Kim Manley Ort is conducting a retreat on Star Island over Labor Day weekend and I will be doing a guest presentation on Visual Listening and Journaling on Sunday morning.  You will learn ways to enter into a conversation with the landscape through a guided meditation and sketching in a little journal I will provide you.

   Kim will be leading activities on practicing mindfulness and discovering the essence of place.  You will come away with a new way to approach your photographic work.

   Star Island is located in the Isles of Shoals off the coast of Portsmouth, New Hampshire.  I spent a wonderful weekend there last August and you can re-read my On Location posts about my experience here as well as look at my album of images.  

   This place seems custom-made for a contemplative photography retreat and I hope you will consider joining Kim and Me this Labor Day weekend. If you haven't done so already, download the Field Guide for the Contemplative Photographer in the right side bar as some pre-retreat reading.

Thanks for turning me on to Star Island, Patricia. I'm looking forward to experiencing the place myself and doing your visual journalling practice.

Thank you Kim! I knew the minute I set foot on the island that this was the perfect place for your contemplative retreats! I am looking forward as well as being part of the weekend.
