Peter Grunwald has discovered that certain areas of the brain, eyes and rest of the visual system correspond to specific areas in the human body. He has developed effective techniques to release patterns that underlie visual dysfunctions together with postural dysfunctions causing back, neck and shoulder pain, headaches and breathing disorders.
In his presentation at The Community Library, Peter will describe how the principles in practice can support you in your own process of seeing. He will work practically with some of the participants and offer some tools to take away.
Peter Grunwald was myopic and astigmatic from early childhood, with his first pair of glasses at the age of 3. He began to stutter and both his posture and self-esteem slumped. In 1984 he began professional training in the Alexander Technique (Australia) to overcome his stuttering and slumped posture. He emerged from this training with a sense of postural and mental poise and increased self-esteem. In the late 1980s he studied in Germany with renowned vision teacher Janet Goodrich, PhD, and within 18 month was able to let go of his 10 1/2 dioptre-strong glasses. His discoveries of the first intrinsic associations between eyes and body followed. From his experience he developed the Eyebody learning method and wrote Eyebody – The Art of Integrating Eye, Brain and Body. A native of Germany, Peter currently resides in New Zealand where he consults, writes, and leads retreats around the world.
