"It is a great opening when one looks through the lens — a mighty opportunity for a magical exchange,” writes award-winning writer, photographer, and multimedia artist Jan Phillips. Her popular Spirituality & Practice E-course, "Photography as a Spiritual Path," roused such enthusiastic interest when it was first offered in July 2015 that we decided to establish a special place at where photographers at all levels can explore together the images that restore our hearts and our world. We also wanted to offer others who have not yet taken that e-course an opportunity to participate in this sharing.

We are now reopening registration for Year 2 of the Contemplative Photographers Practice Group, where you can post your photos, your supportive feedback for others, and your insights into how photography enhances your contemplative path. If you are not already signed up, now is your opportunity! Every Sunday, the S&P team will send you a short email with the week's suggested theme or activity. Included may be photography tips or quotes chosen to inspire your photographic reflections. Occasionally, we will put out a call for photos submissions for projects on the Spirituality & Practice website. The Practice Group will be largely self-monitoring, with technical support available from S&P.

We believe this is a wonderful opportunity for community building at S&P, and to encourage deep and growing relationships among the members of the Practice Group, we will open enrollment to new people only twice a year. This way, participants will have six months to get to know each other and each other's photography in a steady way. We hope and expect that most people will choose to remain in the Practice Group community for years.

The first membership enrollment period for Year Two was July - August, 2016.
The second membership enrollment period is January - February 2017.

We are charging a membership fee of $52 for this Year 2 Practice Group. If you are just joining the group in January – February, this fee gives you access to postings since July 31 and to Practice Group emails and participation through July 31, 2017. Year 3 will begin in August 2017.
