Hi, my name is Peter Freeman. I live in St. Paul, MN. I have a couple significant interests.
I am a Jungian psychotherapist, executive coach and organization consultant in private practice at Full Circle Dynamics (http://www.fullcirclepov.com)
Full Circle Dynamics is dedicated to the professional and personal development of individuals, leaders and organizations. The Full Circle POV (point of view) is a practical, common sense, daily living and development model of the whole person that seeks the coordinated development and integration of the four primary domains of human experience: body, mind, heart and spirit.
I am a photographer at The Elemental Eye. Blog: (http://www.theelementaleye.com).
The Elemental Eye is dedicated to capturing the inherent order and harmony found in situ in everyday life, in everyday worlds.
I strive to be a “noticer,” awake to the world around me. Elizabeth Barrett Browning captured the essence of an elemental eye perspective: “Earth’s crammed with heaven, and every common bush afire with God.”
The juxtapositions and interrelationships among elements in a visual field – light, shadow, line, shape, texture, pattern, directionality, color, tone, and context – continually capture my attention and excite me, whether I have a camera in hand or not.
I am fascinated by what I see, what we all can see, when I really notice the world around me with a sense of reverence and appreciation. I notice how the visual elements relate to each other and, in turn, how I relate to them. It is a way for me to be mindful, to feed soul.
I take portraits of the world. The frame of the photograph allows me to capture interactions among the elements; how they hang together and play off each other. Elements combine to become a complex subject at once very familiar and yet unfamiliar, something uniquely common. I can still look at any image and discover something new, something fresh.
I want viewers of my photographs to interact with the images and with themselves. Stand back and take in the image as a whole, or come forward, step into the image, and look around at the various elements in detail. Spend a bit of time. Be mindful.
We all are complex subjects with juxtapositions of elements; we’re uniquely common. In my professional life as a Jungian psychotherapist, coach and organization development consultant, I also strive to notice and affirm the unique and common elements in my clients, and help facilitate healthy adaptation, growth and change.
