EVENT DESCRIPTION

Eyes Open Minds works with an embodied approach to visual anatomy to improve focus and attention. By relaxing and using your eyes in neuro-physiologically sound ways your focus, tracking of information, and filtering of distractions is improved. For both children and adults exploring the nature of eyes through somatic movement is creative and informative, even life-changing. Learn to focus, track a topic, shift from distance to near focus, and be aware of others while also filtering out distractions and to help others do the same.
