“The Vision Exploration week with Maurice is more than a ticket to Menorca. It is a ticket to a magical world.
The combination of meditation, body work and Mindful Photography transformed every moment of the day into an exercise in attention, in which everything could just totally be itself: the hushed mystery of a prehistoric monument, the ferocious strength of a rugged coastline, the mindblowing beauty of a rock formation. In everything I saw something of myself. The creative passion of Maurice and the purity of the island reinforce each other in a special way. I have found my joy in (nature) photography. “

Lisette van de Wel – anthropologist and religion scientist

“I had a beautiful mindful Creative Vision exploration week in Menorca. Now, two weeks back home, I noticed that everything has gained momentum in my life.
You get closer to nature and therefore closer to your own nature.
I can certainly recommend it to anybody to do this!”

Jan de Kock – Holistico

Throughout my travels and nature explorations, I discovered that it takes about two years for a community to fully live in tune with each other. And in a city it can take up to a lifetime. But when we are all attuned to the Spirit of the Earth through Nature, it takes just a moment!Maurice Spees

“Together we take on a creative revolution!
Rebirthing our society from a consumer marketplace into a healthy playground for thriving Earth conscious creators co-inspired by Nature.”

CALL FOR ARTISTS:

As an artists you are here to instill beauty in people’s lives which inspires people to open up their hearts to the world and makes them remember their calling as conscious sustainer of BEAUTY which naturally creates more HARMONY that leads to BALANCE.

It’s a zen experience!

These Mindful Photography moments will become very special to you. You will have more ideas for photographs than you ever dreamed possible, and be itching to reveal and share your new awareness of the world around you. These are the rewards of relaxed attentiveness.

WHY mindful Photography by Maurice Spees?

During a three-month insight meditation retreat in SE-Asia, Maurice Spees discovered the effect our state of being, especially insight meditation (Vipassana) has on the photography we capture. The retreat brought him back to the state of innocence and pure awareness in which he enjoyed the moment just like a child again, but now with the awareness and recollection of his adult mind. By recovering his inner-child nature he developed an intuitive skill, which he calls intuitive communication with nature, in which nature gives us all the answers we seek. Through intuitive communication with nautre, he developed the entire workflow and workshops which he is offering now. With the help of the insights revealed from Nature he discovered a universal way to uncover and embody our true nature. With the help of Mindful Photography practice he created a powerful vehicle through which everyone is able to get in touch with the same inherent ability. Combined with practicing mindful seeing this technique helps us not only to uncover our true nature, but it will transform your camera into a powerful vehicle for self-discovery and mastery.

So by finding this innate gift, he enjoys dedicating his life to connecting people with nature through this unique vehicle: Mindful Photography workshops in nature.

That’s not all. Because the entire technique is inspired by nature, learning Mindful Photographer lets you become part of a collective of conservation photographers, which help you dive into becoming a conscious visual communicator for the preciousness of our natural world. As Mindful photographers we are here to instill beauty in people’s hearts!

We as artists and passionate photographers are the projectors of what we wish to see in our world. Shining light in dark places. We are the one’s that make people see and get back in touch with their true nature as maintainers of beauty, harmony and balance of our natural habitat.

The world needs Mindful Photographers. The world needs people who see!

You are a gift to the world instilling beauty back into people’s hearts by showing the magic that is all around us. With just a small investment and Maurice his lifetime dedication to his work, you can become the voice of nature expressing her presence through your images. With the right campaign and awareness the world cannot have enough of the spirit of nature that is speaking to and through us every single moment when we are open to receive the present for being present revealed in magic.

“My employer is the Earth. I work in co-creation with Nature and in full attunement with the Spirit of Mother Nature. With a mindful and intuitive approach to my work I offer my work as a gift back to the Earth. All I ask in return is your support to make it possible to continue giving these gifts to people, to cultivate inspiration for others to be their unique gift to the world.

BACKGROUND:

Mindful Photography arose as the synergy between my 15 years experiencing as a globetrotting professional artist, photographer and filmmaker, my self-realization experience in Asia and worldwide Nature explorations. Through intense contemplation in eastern philosophies with the help of insight vipassana meditation, I uncovered an innate ability to intuitively communicate with nature, through this I started to fully experience that all of my gifts to life depends on my relationship with Spirit, which is the primal ingredient that guided me to developing everything I teach today. The last decade I develop a joy and a knack for empowering and guiding people into their own gifts and true nature through workshops, inspirational talks and Creative Vision – Exploration Retreats.

From 2007 onwards I facilitated workshops in Intuitive Development, Authentic Movement, Filmmaking and Mindful Photography for professionals, leaders and students. The essence of this experience I brought together into the ever-growing Vision Exploration experiences I facilitate in the Balearic Islands, Nepal and SE-Asia today.”

All I do is express my love for the world through my work.”

Mindful Photography makes us see the world as it really is, a reflection of our inner-self. A mirror for our soul.
