Get out of your mind

  • Instagram

True creative leadership comes from within, a place of deep calm and focus, that allows you to respond to any situation as it arises. Buddhists teach about 'calming the drunken monkey mind', Henry David Thoreau recommends to 'shake off the village' in order to bring our mind where our body currently is. 

My favourite mindfulness practice is photography. As my teacher, Dr Marian Schmidt used to say: "In the image everything is relations (...). Composition is putting things in order. We have chaos outside and around us - so we search for order." He liked asking us: why do we photograph? It took me many years and lots of walking to agree with Marian in that, we are looking for the truth. Inner truth. How we stay authentic in a multitude of relations is what I like to research and explore, with clients and on my own. Marian taught me to pause and clear my mind from the noise before taking a photo.
