Capturing Mindfulness

by Matthew Johnstone - £9.99  Constable and Robinson (2014)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781472113269 | ISBN 10: 1472113268

Beautifully illustrated new wellbeing title from the bestselling author of I Had a Black Dog. Matthew Johnstone’s latest book Capturing Mindfulness, is a natural follow on from his last book Quiet the Mind which came out in 2012.
 
It’s a book on how to create mindfulness through photography.
 
Matthew has been practicing what he terms ‘photopresent’ for the last 15 years and believes that next to meditation, this is one of the most creative and enjoyable ways to attain mindfulness in day-to-day life. The very essence of photography; after all, is all about focus and capturing ‘the moment’.
 
Matthew is fascinated by light, colour, composition and most importantly how he can see the world differently. For him, having camera in your hands is the reminder to consciously slow everything down from your breath, to your walk, to your thoughts and begin to really observe your surroundings as if seeing them for the first time.
 
Mindfulness photography is about seeing something that no one else can, capturing something that will never happen again and finding beauty where it doesn’t typically exist. When we become more consciously aware of where we are, what we’re doing and what we’re thinking, life can become calmer, more enjoyable and generally more manageable.
 
Capturing Mindfulness is now one of Matthew’s keynote talks.
