"We don't see things as they are, we see them as we are." In this episode, Certified Bates Method Teacher, Nathan Oxenfeld discusses the deeper connections between your worldview, your self-image, and your vision. Holistic eye care is all about expanding your definition of "vision" and including more factors in what vision can mean to you beyond just eyesight. It is also about investigating the non-physical factors that have shaped your vision in the past and continue to shape your vision today. This list on non-physical factors affecting your vision can be quite long, but today we are honing in on two in particular: worldview and self-image. Your worldview is how you think, feel, believe, and perceive the world outside of yourself. Your self-image is how you think, feel, believe, and perceive yourself and how you fit into the world. Your worldview and your self-image are formed through a combination of personal experiences and from what you take on from external sources. Sometimes we feel stuck in a certain worldview or self-image. Likewise, we can also feel stuck in a certain way of seeing. However, by becoming more flexible with these changeable non-physical factors like your worldview and self-image, you create the possibility of making a positive change with your physical eyesight. This episode was recorded from Buenos Aires, Argentina as Nathan prepares to attend the first Latin American Holistic Vision Conference.
