How writing helped me find my calling

How writing helped me find my calling

I don’t talk much about it but writing is and has always been a big part of my life. From a little kid scribbling words on pieces of paper, getting an A+ for best short essay in elementary school, to now most recently having my piece published in Time.com. Writing for me is a very subtle yet powerful practice of mine that has oftentimes led me to my biggest breakthroughs in life and work.

Meditative Photo Walk | A Workshop on Mindful Photography

"Prayer is when you talk to God, Meditation is when God talks to you." Yogi Bhajan

I've always been amazed at how all time seems to stop when I lift the camera to my eye. We start to see our worlds differently as everything around us starts to take shape. We become completely absorbed in the present. There's no other beautiful place to be than being in the moment.

Come join me this Sunday for my new photography workshop; Meditative Photo Walk.

Why Am I Doing This?

I come from a past life where creativity was seldom encouraged or nurtured. It was treated like some taboo thing that only a select few were fortunate enough to do but could never to be taken seriously, especially when it came to a career path.  I happened to stumble upon photography by chance but what came from this discovery was anything but chance. Finding photography opened up my emotional, mental, and spiritual world in ways I could never imagine. It connected me with a fulfilling passion. It connected me with worldly beauty. And it connected me with a sense of purpose. Since then it has been my life's work to motivate and inspire others towards a life filled with personal discovery, creative passion and purpose so that we can all know what it's like to connect with that place within our core that yearns to satisfy their soul with something greater than the status quo.

Say you'll join me for 30 days in a wonderful journey of creative self-discovery.
