What we're about

This is a group for two kinds of people - those who seek to learn Chinese conversational skills and those who seek to learn and improve on English. I started this group to facilitate the two language exchanges by having native-speakers there to model the conversations. I used to be an experienced language teacher so I will definitely offer tips along the way. We will also periodically organize fun events such as dinners or nature trips to explore different cultures and customs. Friendships and fun times are encouraged!

Pasadena: FREE Introductory Class to Natural Vision Improvement

Hastings Branch Library

(This Meetup is cross posted on several other group calendars. There are more RSVPs than show here.) Members often ask me about this FREE class so I'm posting it again for the group. ------------------------------------- FREE class in Pasadena! Come join us at the FREE Introductory Class on Natural Vision Improvement. This class will cover the following: ° How to get your eyesight back to normal without glasses, contacts or surgery. ° The primary cause of imperfect eyesight, whether you are nearsighted, farsighted, have astigmatism or any combination of these. It's NOT age. ° The mental and physical habits of imperfect sight. ° The mental and physical habits of normal sight. ° How these techniques get your eyesight back to normal, regardless of your age or visual problems. ° Learn how to improve your eyesight right in the class. Many attendees experience a significant change in their eyesight during the demonstration. (To watch the video on YouTube, cut and paste the link). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UqrauyLA43U Come learn how you can get your eyesight back to normal without glasses, contacts or surgery. ° Works for nearsightedness (Myopia). ° Works if you use reading glasses. ° Works regardless of your age. ° Works if you've had problems after Lasik. *** ° Works great for kids! ° Learn how to keep your normal eyesight for your whole life, before you begin to use glasses, contacts or have surgery. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- *** What people are saying after attending the class: *** "Hello Carlos ... "Joy Russell here. I attended your seminar at the Oasis Family Clinic a couple of weeks ago (fall 2017). I came up to you afterwards to talk about the scar in my left eye." "I wanted to let you know that I'm very excited about the possibility of being able to see naturally and have been working on it. When I came home that night I tested my eyes on the card you handed out. I could see the bottom line "ALL DAY LONG" 6.5" from my nose. I'm nearsighted - very much so. I've stopped wearing my glasses (except when necessary) - which is weird - been 'shifting' & 'palming' + trying to relax. I LOVE the concept of REST! I'm now able to see 'ALL DAY LONG" from about 11" out ... Pretty amazing." ------ "Thank you for last night's class. It was very interesting and I noticed that my vision was clearer on the drive home!" Terri B. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Packets will be prepared for those that RSVP. *** If you have glasses, wear them instead of contact lenses for this class. We'll have you practice some of the habits of normal vision free from any lenses. *** ***Parking: FREE in the lot adjacent to the building and on the street. If you park on the street check signs for restrictions. There will be more people attending than show up on this group calendar, so make sure to RSVP if you want to attend. Looking forward to helping you with YOUR eyesight at the class! ---------------------------------- This class will be given by Carlos Moreno of CenteredVision.com. Like many of you, he wore glasses and contact lenses for many years. By learning and using methods he'll cover in this class, he doesn't use any corrective lenses anymore at all. Want to learn how? Come to the class to find out! He's been teaching people like you to improve their eyesight and see clearly without glasses, contacts or surgery for over 21 years. This class is available FREE for any group in the greater LA area. For more info contact me via my Meetup profile.
