[Disclaimer, explanation: The information/workshops listed below are presented by members of the Association of Vision Educators. Every teacher is different. Most offer private lessons, or small group classes, some of which might be on a once (or more) a week schedule. Below is a list of special one time courses that will be offered "in one piece". This would make sense if you wanted to fly in from another part of the country/world and take the course...]

2017 Bates Method Residential Summer Workshop
in France - 1 – 5 August 2017

Ardèche, France – Bates Method and Juggling.

The workshop explores visual habits and capacities and how to improve use of eyes in everyday life with the principles and activities of the Bates Method. Enhancing these principles with half an hour of Juggling in the morning and half an hour in the afternoon will stimulate ocular mobility, left-right brain integration, postural and body awareness with fun, laughter and relaxation. In a beautiful environment with view of the French Alps in the distance, a swimming pool for relaxation and cooling off during free time, the conditions for improving eyesight are just perfect. The workshp will be in French. If French is rusty, assistance in English possible. But a general knowledge of French is required.

Weekend Workshops with Greg Marsh in Fort Collins, Colorado

Greg Marsh offers weekend Reclaim Your Eyesight Naturally workshops in Fort Collins, Colorado and other locations. The workshops attract a delightful mix of people who believe they can heal their eyes with natural approaches, and want a boost to get to a breakthrough. It can be an encouraging setting for a person with simple reading glasses, extreme myopia, eye disease, or any other mix. We include EFT “tapping” to help people break loose from whatever reasons they did not want to see in the past. Visualizations help participants send healing intention to their eyes. This sets the tone to experience the amazing Bates techniques at a new and profound level.
