About the Retreat
This unique experiential retreat with Peter Grunwald – for both beginners and advanced students – explores the integration of vision, eyesight, posture, movement, relaxation, imagination and brain function. The EYEBODY method is a principle-based educational process that can transform your way of seeing and being. Applying the principles can help you let go of the habit of wearing glasses and contact lenses. It is beneficial for people of all ages and offers a comprehensive learning experience. Central to the method is the understanding that eyesight and vision are flexible and can be changed. This is true of many known visual symptoms such as myopia (short-sightedness), hypermetropia (far-sightedness), presbyopia (middle-age vision), astigmatism, light sensitivity, crossed and lazy eyes, cataracts, glaucoma and other vision disorders.
During this EYEBODY retreat you will
- understand the visual process and your unique visual function
- learn to apply the EYEBODY principles to the process of seeing
- understand how your visual habits may contribute to your loss of clear sight and learn effective techniques to release those patterns
- take your first steps without glasses or contacts
- learn how to integrate the EYEBODY method into activities of your daily life, such as walking, driving and computer work
- build bridges between vision and spirituality
- read and see without strain or fatigue
- experience how EYEBODY may improve your posture, and also benefit your hearing
- see Peter for two short one-on-one sessions during the week
The retreat will also support ADVANCED students of the EYEBODY method to renew and deepen their practice. All participants will be met and guided at their individual level of knowledge and experience.
The Eyebody Method
EYEBODY coordinates the brain and releases tensions in the eyes and the whole visual system, bringing clarity to the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual aspects of seeing. Through the EYEBODY patterns the body is reached in an indirect way and can have a positive effect on many conditions, such as neck, back and joint pain, asthma and general fatigue, benefiting overall health and co-ordination. EYEBODY enhances clear thinking, integrates all the senses (especially hearing) and supports more effective processing of information. Clear sight is only one aspect of vision. Perceiving the world in more depth and letting go of over- and under-focussing promotes a deep sense of well-being that permeates all aspects of life. Very often physical, mental and emotional difficulties can be transformed, the roots of which may have seemed elusive.
Group and individual attention is given to support you in creatively learning the EYEBODY principles and assimilating them gradually. Sharing in the experiences of others can help you learn about yourself. Participants benefit most if they are ready to explore and question habits, let go of resistances and welcome change.
Peter Grunwald discovered the connections between the eyes and the body in the early 1990s. These EYEBODY patterns describe how every part of the eyes, the visual pathway and the visual cortex is connected to a specific area of the body. Particular visual symptoms correspond with specific tensions in the body.
