EYESPIRATION: Mindfulness photography

Do you think:

I feel so stressed and tired I might be close to a burn-out. I don't have time to go outdoors and take pretty pictures. I want to be free! I miss the freedom to go out exploring the world with my camera. I can't, I don't have time - or money.

Do you wonder:

How do I take a pretty picture. How does my new camera work. How can I learn to take great photos quickly. How do I make time for my hobby. How can I learn to become a better photographer?

Do you wish:

I love to take beautiful pictures all the time. I feel so happy when I do. I get new energy, I feel so strong and free again, with a calm mind. My heart jumps when I take a great photograph. I take time for myself, I feel peaceful and complete.

About the author

Melanie E. Rijkers is a contemplative photographer for over 20 years. She uses mindfulness in her photography, way before the word became famous.

Having experienced challenges herself and trying not to go completely mad, she kept reading about and working with the insights on The Simple Life. After nearly a decade of leading #Eyespiration photography groups and workshops the Silence Stills book will be her precious gift to the world.

Seeing the world with Pure Eyes combines science with sprituality and will connect the dots between meditation, philosophy and the history of fine art. Miksang, Daoism and contemplation go together with PhotoTherapy and positive psychology.

Enjoy the silence of a still, pure mind with the help of the exercises in this book.

‘After the workshop we all noticed a change in our perception of the world.’

Eyespiration Workshop

#Eyespiration shows life as it is, subjects seen as they are. Struck by its beauty or remarkable appearance, in detail often, life is photographed.


Life Coach and PhotoTherapist Melanie E. Rijkers: I love to deepen my knowledge. I love to study art, psychology, spirituality, the science of light and the history of photography. I love to enhance my skills with simple photography exercises.

I love to take a photo walk. To meditate with eyes open to silence my monkey brain. I use my phone to take stellar photos and I just love Instagram.
