What Is INscape?
INscape is a distinctive workshop that uses photography, writing, meditation, and sharing as tools to go INward to gain personal INsight and learning. The workshop promotes creativity, restoration, and well-being, whether one is dealing with a serious illness, like cancer, or a significant life challenge.
Our society values achievement and being productive, living predominantly in our head. This is a “doing” as opposed to a “being”. The INscape program guides us in the practice of living predominantly in the heart, using photography as a walking meditation where one is totally immersed in the present. Freeman Patterson said, “All photographs are self-portraits”, a reflection of how one feels at a moment in time and how one perceives her/his place in the world. Photography offers an outer expression of the inner exploration of one’s life. It is a nonverbal venue to explore our actions, thoughts, emotions, and memories.
In this workshop, using photography (no experience is necessary), we will focus inward to investigate the cancer journey in both its shadow and its light.
“This is the most incredibly moving and transformational weekend I have encountered in 10 years at The Cancer Wellness Center. I have not stopped talking about it.”
