Vision and the Responsive Body

Our eyes are intimately connected to how we perceive and to how we move in the world. Last October as part of ISMETA’s 25th Anniversary Celebration, Continnum Teacher Elaine Colandrea and Dr Marc Grossman O.D. L.Ac. came together to explore the fertile arena of seeing and moving as an expansive expression of life. Join them this year for a deepened exploration of vision and somatic movement. Together they will share fascinating information and rich experiences with Continuum Movement, breath, sound and movement.

For Everyone

Our eyes are intimately connected to our brains and bodies. From this connection, it naturally follows that our attitudes, beliefs, and how we see and react to life situations can affect our vision.

Optometrist, acupuncturist, and author Marc Grossman incorporates the physical, emotional, and spiritual aspects of vision in his philosophy of eye care, including the underlying physical and psychological effects of vision problems. This workshop is based on his best-selling books, Greater Vision and Magic Eye Beyond 3D: Improve Your Vision. Marc uses a full range of mind-body therapies combined with conventional approaches to address conditions such as nearsightedness, presbyopia (the over-40 syndrome), macular degeneration, cataracts, glaucoma, and more.

Discover how your inner vision affects your outer vision and leave with an individual protocol for your own eye condition.
