November 4, 2014 (Boulder, CO)—Naropa University presents Bearing Witness: African Americans and Contemplative Practice produced by Quddus Maus with photographs by Lisa Schaewe. The show runs from November 3, 2014 – January 5, 2015 at the Paramita Gallery on the Paramita Campus at 3285 30th Street, Boulder, CO 80301. Please join us for the opening reception on November 14, 2014 from 5:00-7:00 p.m.

Quddus Maus is a third year graduate student in the Transpersonal Counseling Psychology program at Naropa University. He believes that intrinsic health is a universal quality, a possession with which we are all endowed. Bearing Witness is his book in its embryonic stage; it is a photographic journey though the landscape of the African-American experience with contemplative practice.

Lisa Schaewe is meditation instructor and adjunct faculty in the Transpersonal Counseling Psychology program who exhibits her artwork nationally. “I realized it was the intimate space of each individual’s relationship with their practice that I was being invited to enter more than any physical location”.

Together, Quddus and Lisa have created an exhibition of exquisite photographs that convey a deep relationship between the individual and their contemplative practice. The photographs allow the viewer to glimpse the silent union.
