The Art of Seeing

Neuroplasticity for Improving Vision and Overall Health

1440 Multiversity 800 Bethany Drive Scotts Valley,CA 95066

Join a pioneer in vision science, integrative health, and subtle energy therapies and learn the tools you need to improve your vision, support your eyes, and impact your overall health. Dr. Sam Berne has spent 30 years developing a unique method that weaves together health, vision, and eyesight with brain and body practices for increased health, vitality, and creativity.

Traditional eye care offers little hope in preventing and addressing glaucoma, macular degeneration, and other conditions that are currently on the rise. New developments in neuroscience show that the eye pathway has a direct influence on brain function, the endocrine system, and the nervous system. In this life-changing workshop with Dr. Berne, you will learn:

  • The Berne Method®—discover your visual patterns and conditioned responses to stress, trauma, and cultural conditioning
  • Eye-brain mindful awareness activities to better regulate the nervous system
  • How to use herbal remedies and medicinal essential oils to support eye and brain health and overall wellness
  • Movement practices, important nutritional principles, and color therapy to reduce stress and improve vitality.

Dr. Berne’s gentle and humorous approach creates a safe, trusting environment where you will learn to take care of more than just your eyes. As a result of this workshop, you will have simple, enjoyable, effective tools to use in shaping a more empowering future for your eyes, brain, and body.
