This is an online course, meaning you can participate at the time of day that works best for your schedule. This class, taught by professional photographer Val Isenhower, explores the idea of photography as a spiritual practice. Photography is a path to stilling the heart and soul to hear God and to sense the presence of God in the beauty of God’s creation. The class (and book) focuses on how our spiritual lives can inform our photography as we learn to pay attention, to be patient, to center and to focus our eyes in new ways. We also explore the act of focusing on the pictures we record to see how they speak to your souls. This course is experiential. We will read materials and discuss ideas on-line. New class assignments will be posted every other day. You will also be asked to spend time recording photographs, sharing them with the class and reflecting on the experience through a class blog. Val checks into the class blog and interacts with participants several times a day. The course is based on the book Meditation on Both Sides of the Camera by Valerie K. Isenhower. The book is an ebook and can be purchased in Kindle and e-pub formats. This course is for anyone interested in learning how to include photography in their spiritual journey. Any type of camera will work, although digital cameras will make uploading pictures easier. This course is eligible for 1.0 CEU. Price: $65
