Ray Eigen Ball

Ray Eigen Ball studies contemplative photography in the Nalanda Miksang tradition, which arose in the Shambhala Buddhist tradition in the 1980s, with John McQuade and Miriam Hall, authors of “Looking and Seeing” and “Heart ofPhotography” — the two-volume Way of Seeing series. Eigen has been a Zen student in the Mountains and Rivers Order since 2001, and is the Coordinator of the MRO Affiliate group in Buffalo, NY, where he has taught Miksang photography, as well as at Karmê Chöling, the Shambhala Meditation Center in Vermont.
