Practice Meandering towards the Center of every Place

Monastery in Kham
I am on my way  to photograph the Shaman Festivals of Tongren in the Tibetan province of Kham. The shaman’s religion is a pagan religion of nature where the human being is seen as a part of nature and not as something existing in opposition to it. The purpose that is taught here is to live in harmony with the natural environment on a very personal and intimate level. 
These last days before I leave  are always the hardest – a mix between organizing my art, business and life at home, trying to make my bags lighter and focusing on my goals for the trip – how to go deeper – to see with feeling. I have been rereading”The Art of Pilgrimage”, a book I always look at before I leave .

I came across these thoughts and  I am printing them  to read each morning as a good way to begin the day…

 Excellent Practices Of Pilgrimages

Practice the arts of attention and listening.

Practice renewing yourself everyday.

Practice meandering towards the center of every place.

  1. Dear Terri, I am envious. Having formed the Foundation for Shamanic Studies in the 1980’s and then having lived with shamanic societies around the world, I wish that I were accompanying you to this region which I have never visited. Be open to everything and have an amazing journey – on every level!! – Mark
