Workshops

Self-Healing is the process of accessing your innate power to create better health. Through gentle movement, breath work, self-massage, visualization and vision improvement exercises you can create profound change.

Unbalanced, poor visual habits and accumulated eyestrain compromise the health and function of the eyes. Relaxation of the eyes and proper use will improve vision. Relaxation of chronically overused muscles and use of muscles that you have never used before, enhance circulation and bring the body into better balance. Your body and vision are interrelated.

Contact the school if you would like Meir to give a workshop in your area or place of business.  Please see the Calendar for times and locations of the following workshops:


Six Day Natural Vision Improvement Workshop with Meir Schneider, PhD, LMT

Exercises on the beach.

Alleviate computer eyestrain.

Rest your eyes during the workday.

Learn healthy eye habits and integrate them into your daily life.

Protect the priceless gift of sight!

Vision problems are all too common in our lifestyle and society.   Unbalanced, poor visual habits and movement patterns, and accumulated eyestrain compromise the health and function of the eyes.  Relaxation of the eyes and proper use will improve eyesight.

With practice, you can improve your vision permanently, put an end to eyestrain and discover a more relaxed, alive way of seeing.

Working on your vision in a group setting is fun, effective and empowering, as people around you experience improvements in their own visual needs. Join Meir and the staff of the School for Self-Healing for a special six day vision program to teach you healthy eye habits.

Bring your contact case and expect to have fun.

The general concepts and principles of natural vision improvement.

Understand how lifestyle and posture affects vision and the interrelation of the body and eyes.  Discover how your daily routine affects your vision, how you are using your eyes improperly and the importance of integrating healthy eye habits into your daily life.

Time will be given to measure your own vision and learn how to monitor progress.  Experience profound relaxation of the eyes and start with the basic eye exercises. The afternoon is open for you to practice on your own what you have learned today to have a private session.

Book your sessions early-availability is limited!

Day Two: 9am – 1pm

A deepening of the basic exercises critical for every condition.

We will also address near and far-sighted- ness, presbyopia (middle age onset of far-sightedness), resting the central vision and stimulating peripheral vision (important for night vision, and useful with all conditions).

The afternoon is open for you to practice on your own what you have learned today or to have a private session. Book your sessions early-availability is limited!

Day Three: 9am – 1pm

Meir instructing a Natural Vision Improvement Workshop at the Center for Self-Healing in San Francisco

In the downstairs classroom.

Learn how to balance the use of the eyes and prevent domination of one eye over the other.

Most people have one eye that is dominant and the brain ignores the messages from the other. This puts tremendous strain on the dominant eye, which will eventually deteriorate from overuse, while the weaker eye will become weaker from lack of use.  You will learn eye teaming exercises that create relaxation and fusion.  And we will cover specific exercises for strabismus, amblyopia and diplopia, which are also useful for everybody.

The afternoon is open for you to practice on your own what you have learned today or to have a private session. Book your sessions early-availability is limited!

Day Four: 9am – 1pm

Explore the body-eye connection and how to overcome and prevent pathologies like glaucoma, macular degeneration, cataracts, etc.

Macular degeneration, cataracts, glaucoma and retinal problems (diabetes, beginning retinitis pigmentosa, retinal tears and detachments) are becoming all too common. Don’t become one of those rising statistics! Time for individual needs to be discussed.

Yoga for the Eyes One Day Workshop

Spend a day getting in touch with your eyes.

Meir Schneider, PhD, LMT, will teach vision exercises and imagery techniques to rest and refresh your eyes, allow them to adjust to different amounts of light, and retrain your brain to command their proper and balanced use.

This workshop gives you tools for self-improved vision and optical health. The techniques are simple, effective, and easy to use and empowers individuals to improve their eyesight naturally.

Building on techniques pioneered by ophthalmologist William Bates, Meir Schneider developed this self-help program, which includes basic principles of natural eyesight improvement, exercises to increase visual acuity and ocular health, exercises to refresh the eyes and mind, and on-the-spot techniques to ease reading, driving and computer eyestrain.

This workshop can also help those with near- or far-sightedness, cataracts, eye fatigue, computer vision syndrome or other afflictions. It contains all the necessary information and tools people need to begin a self-healing routine at home.
