Hello and welcome to the website for the forthcoming book, Way of Seeing.

We are in the final stages of preparing to publish. The book, in other words, is almost there. Phew. Our hope is to have it available to order by April 1, 2015.

What do the final stages of putting out a book like this look like? Setting up our imprint: Drala Image Press. Line editing, which means paying folks to comb through the entire text looking for tiny inconsistencies and errors: are the same things always capitalized, are the apostrophes correct, etc, etc.

At the same time, we have a design team working on the cover and preparing the insides. The book has a smaller number of photos (fifty) than a lot of “photography” books – that’s because the main focus for this book, like the main focus for Nalanda Miksang overall – is about the practice, the view and the reflections. Pictures are important – significant! – but it is, after all, contemplative photography, not photography that happens to be contemplative. Contemplation is first and foremost in our minds, hearts and so in also the book.

We will keep you posted here and on social media. Miriam will be launching a Facebook page for the book and there’s already one for Nalanda Miksang, so find us there! As soon as we have a newsletter you can sign up for, we will make it.

Thanks for your interest and keep checking back as we fill in and enliven the website and news.

Miriam and John
