Jared Warren: Mindful Photography
September 29 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Outside, away from civilization, is a symphony of sensory experiences. Join 2017 GSENM Photography – Artist in Residence, Jared Warren, for an interactive presentation about awareness. With a deep and varied history in Eastern philosophical traditions, mindfulness is training oneself to be aware, truly present, and to fully experience everything this moment has to offer.
Make the most of your outdoor adventures! Learn simple skills like slowing down, observing, savoring, and being aware of unreasonable or unhelpful thoughts that might get in the way of a positive experience in nature.
Jared Warren is a professor, researcher, psychologist, father, student of life, and… photographer. He enjoys many genres of this art but finds landscape photography to be his own best therapy. He hopes his photography motivates others to spend more time in nature, to feel a stronger connection with the Source of all creation, and to savor all the goodness in life. When not outside capturing the stunning landscapes of the western US, Jared is a professor of psychology at Brigham Young University where he teaches courses and conducts research on mindfulness.
