What fascinates me in photography is an immediate connection!

Let me invite to a recent talk with Bara Belova from the Czech Republic. Bara is a coach and mentor, and a yoga teacher. She took part in the ONE IMAGE – MANY WORDS – Photography in Coaching course in August, 2020. I asked Bara about what fascinates her in photography and how it helps her to work with people in coaching. She shared many inspiring ideas! She also shared with generosity her insights about the course.

I’m grateful for this talk. I’m happy that I can share it with you.

Some inspiring ideas from Bara:

What fascinates me in photography is an immediate connection. Connection to the subconscious. Photography works like GPS for the mind. It allows you to go where it is safe to be. The picture that has so many things, so many stories behind. When I was preparing for the course, I looked at photo albums at home and it was funny to see how quickly I can remember things when I look at old photos. “O! gosh! I have this one. I remember it!” …

I’m a very visual person. I need to see things!

Photos also give you the time to reflect, to think. When a picture is stored in the mind, sometimes, people connect dots after a couple of weeks.

Whenever it is the right time, you connect to the right people and you take the journey. My personal situation brought me to your course right at this moment of time.

Bara joined the Polish taught edition as she can understand Polish very well. We spoke Polish and English during the course. And “we had photography – a connecting language”.

What was also great is the preparation for the course was important: I could answer many of my questions while I was preparing for the course.

A lot of beautiful processes. Great talks.

The answers are just around us. We don’t know. But our subconscious knows that already.

Dears, that you for reading this post and watching the video. Stay inspired. Listen to your inner voice, intuition, wisdom, and soul. Namaste! Dorota

Hello😀! It is Sunday morning in Warsaw where I am now. Let’s open this day with a beautiful quote from Aaron Siskind, an American photographer who said: “Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… It remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.

I have to tell you – it is a very true sentence! I often witness how photos remind us, and my clients about things we forgot, but once we see them right in front of our eyes, memories come back! And we can return to our most important moments.

And how about you – do you keep photos you made time ago? If yes, why keeping photos is important to you?

Photography and Connection

Taking the camera in your hand, meeting eye in eye, documenting human life, street life, family life, taking a selfie, watching an old family photo album and telling stories that are behind your photos to your friends or children – all that is CONNECTING – the act of making connections.
Photos make it easier for people to connect. Because when people show their pictures, they open up to each other. A roundtable of photos is a fascinating experience. We will do it during the course “ONE IMAGE – MANY WORDS. Photography in Coaching and Personal Development”. Today, I’m showing a few pictures of me at work – let’s connect. Do Raniszewska
