RELAX

You will experience the best of both worlds – photography creation and relaxation.  This photography retreat is the perfect blend between reflecting and recharging while practicing your photography craft. This retreat does not contain a heavy workload. It is an opportunity to make strides in your photography through practice and group sharing. You will have many opportunities to take is all in and breathe.

REJUVENATE

You will spend time outdoors to help reduce stress, improve your mood, restore attention and heal mental fatigue. Short, simple mindfulness exercises incorporated into your activities, such as hiking between photos, will demonstrate an easy, enjoyable, and surprisingly effective way of being more mindful. Being in the Cypress Hills will inherently reduce your stress and anxiety, lower blood pressure and strengthen your immune system. Really? Yes. This retreat will be good for you.

REVITALIZE

Photography is a great hobby to help you revitalize. It allows you to be active, with open attention on the present. You carefully observe the world around you. Photography means living in the moment and awakening to your current experience. You will sit with that tree or rock (or person) and give it (or them) your full attention.

You won’t find formal instruction here, instead, you will build a community of friends with a similar interest, knowledge share and set achievable healthy art goals while honing your craft in the beautiful Cypress Hills Interprovincial Park. A restful place, in which one can rest, relax, reflect and be mindful.
