Reading effortlessly – when the arms are getting too short to read the fine print

Reading effortlessly – ever wondered why the arms are getting too short to read the fine print?

It’s called presbyopia and it affects most people between the ages 40 to 50 or later in life. Sometime presbyopia is showing up by its own, sometimes it’s in combinations with other eye dysfunctions such as myopia, astigmatism, glaucoma, cataracts, hypometropia, squints and other uncommon visual disturbances.

But luckily, it’s possible to prevent and to change the outcome (without any need in overstretching your arms!) – with the Alexander Technique and deep insights of Peter’s vast experiences and research in improving vision naturally.

Since the beginning of his profound discoveries between the intrinsic/inner regions of the eyes and their fluid relationship of the body, Peter stayed with FM’s principles of Inhibition and Direction. This enabled him to apply the process in a practical and direct way to integrate the brain, eyes and the rest of the visual system and therefore affecting the ability to see, read, to understand and to make sense of what we read.

This is a practical workshop full of joy of discoveries combined with a Master Class of reading without the need for glasses, solely using your brains neuroplasticity and inhibition and direction, your organs of your eyes and a little help with Peter’s hands-on guidance.

During his research he developed specially formulated Eyebody Pinholes as a training tool in inhibition while engaging in a new practice of seeing. They are especially helpful while reading or during computer work to ease eyestrain, to see clearer and to learn inhibition and the direction of envisaging. They will be available during the Congress.


About Peter Grunwald

Peter wore glasses for 27 years for myopia and astigmatism. His glasses became stronger year by year. Addressing this declining situation seriously and committedly he discovered in the early 1990’s how to apply FM’s principles to the process of seeing. It took him eighteen months until he was absolutely free of his – 10.5 diopter glasses.

At that time, Peter discovered that within the visual system an entire map of the human body resides and that the eyes themselves link to corresponding structures in the brain that govern the body, the emotions and the ability to think and reason.

Peter discovered the primary control mechanism within the higher visual region of the brain connected with our Souls blue print. Deviations from this blue print let us glide into dysfunctions of brain, eye, body and environmental nature.

Peter trained between 1984 and 1987 at the Sydney Alexander Training School. Over five years he studied with Marjory Barstow in Australia. The combined trainings gave Peter the foundation in hands-on work as well as the creative approach of applying the process to a new frontier. From there on he developed the inner understanding of the synapses and pathways of the brain to the improvement of the eye’s ability to re-integrate its functions, structure and response to cell memories and spiritual attributes.

His latest book Soulful Seeing – Conscious Living or The Art of Embodying Soul is based on Inhibition and Directions with Peters extensive experience including emotional and spiritual attributes integrating brain, eyes and body.

Peter brings humor to complex circumstances. While at home overlooking Wyuna Bay beach, Coromandel Peninsular in New Zealand, he spends his time enjoying nightly sunsets across the ocean, dancing, walking, hiking, biking, gardening, meditating, enjoying belonging to community of friends and deep family bonds – and loving spending time with his children and wild grandchildren.

Some of his published writings are available at the Congress in English, German, Italian, Spanish and Japanese.

Private Sessions available: Peter is available from 20-22 August for a series of sessions in Berlin. This is prior to the congress and a great opportunity to work individually with Peter. For bookings contact info@eyebody.com
