Updated on June 30th, 2017 – Please read carefully! Information for the future of Nalanda Miksang practioners in Moose Jaw.
In October 2016 the Moose Jaw Camera Club started a new special interest group where members explored the art of Miksang Photography.
What is Nalanda Miksang?
Miksang is a Tibetan word that translates as “Good Eye”. This school of contemplative photography brings together the art of photography, the discipline of meditation and the Dharma Art teachings of the meditation master and scholar Chögyam Trungpa.

The Nalanda Miksang Group meets every first Saturday (year-round) at 9:30 a. m. at Mitsu Cafe on Main Street N. (next meeting is July 1st, 2017)
Members gather to engage in a short study of the month’s theme. Leader(s) will provide an assignment lasting 45 to 60 minutes. Members will then return to review a selection of the images they captured. The meeting will take up to three hours.The primary objective is to learn from one another and feedback is vital in this process. Most of the educational benefit happens during the feedback part of the meeting.
(Just a note: for the time being we meet at a place of business, Mitsu Cafe. Please consider supporting this lovely space by purchasing a beverage. Remember: there is no membership fee for belonging to the Nalanda Miksang Moose Jaw group).
Additional images may be uploaded for sharing and feedback to the Members Only Flickr Group (Nalanda Miksang Moose Jaw) online. This will enable those members who travel for extended periods to continue their active participation in the group. To be an active part of the Flickr Group participants must have taken part in at least Level 1 training. An invitation to join the Flickr group will be issued to everyone who has finished Part 1 (and 2) of Miksang training. (Everyone from the May 2017 workshop has been invited to join – if you have not received your invitation check your spam folder or email the leader(s) to reissue an invite.)
Please exercise patience while the 32 images download. Thank you!
