Five Day Vision Transformation
December 2nd-6th, 2020
11am-1pm & 3pm-5pm EST
All online, from your own home

Get ready for a deep dive into the world of natural vision improvement, with the guidance of Certified Bates Method Teacher, Nathan Oxenfeld.

Our small group will meet twice a day for five days to not only learn, but also implement the principles and practices of The Bates Method.

This virtual retreat will jumpstart your home vision practice and help you end the year 2020 on a clearer note, transforming your vision and transforming your life.

We will meet on Zoom from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm EST and again from 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm EST, with a break in between from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm EST.

  • Day One: Vision Relaxation

  • Day Two: Vision Awareness

  • Day Three: Vision Fusion

  • Day Four: Vision Building

  • Day Five: Vision Healing

Each day will have a particular theme that will build on the last, learning the foundations of natural vision improvement first, then learning the vision building techniques to transform the way you see the world.

The 1st session of the day will be instructional.

The 2nd session of the day will be implementational.

20 hours of vision training will be transformational.

You will be able to ask your questions throughout the experience.

All the classes will be recorded so you may have access to them after the five day vision transformation.

You will be provided with the recordings of all the classes as well as downloadable digital materials and vision training tools. This event will also include a screening of the documentary film Vision 2020: From Eyesight To Insight.


Two-Day Virtual Vision Retreat

May 16th – 17th, 2020

Originally, Certified Bates Method Teacher, Nathan Oxenfeld was going to be hosting a 5 Day Eyesight & Insight Immersion Retreat in Asheville, North Carolina at the end of May… well, due to the COVID-19 shutdown, that has been postponed to 2021… so Nathan has decided to take his in-person event online and host his first ever Virtual Vision Retreat!

Join Nathan and a group of other vision students for this two-day immersion in natural vision improvement from the safety and comfort of your own home.

Throughout this weekend immersion, we will be meeting for a total of 6 classes (two hours each) that will teach you a handful of healthy computer vision tips, show you how to replace bad vision habits with good vision habits, help you establish a daily vision improvement routine, and actually address the underlying root causes of vision problems.

Can’t attend all the classes? Live in a different time zone? No worries! In addition to the live access, you will also get copies of all the recordings to catch up on and re-watch later!
