Visual Intelligence: Balance and Coordination — through heart-centered optometry from a spiritual and conscious space.
Vision Intelligence Workshop
As vision is learned and we are visual beings, Dr. Dean will take you back to when you were an infant with retained primitive reflexes which can affect our vision, to the adult world of visualization and perception, a subtest of vision that is rarely ever taught. The world of eyesight as you know it will never be the same, as vision acuity is only a sampling of what Dr. Dean will talk about. You will be exposed to and learn the many different skills that will allow you to function at your optimum potential, from the simple eye tracking skills to peripheral integration, vision computer syndrome to comprehension, perception, visual memory, visualization and how vision can affect our emotions. You will experience an expansion in your knowledge from your central vision to your periphery and from your eyesight to your soul as we will consciously build a hierarchy of efficient visual systems.
