The Art of Cosmic Vision: Practices for Improving Your Eyesight

Book review

Eye problems reflect problems with the internal organs, usually the liver and kidneys.

by Mantak Chia and Robert T. Lewanski

In the West, problems with eyesight are treated separately from overall health, usually with prescription glasses or contact lenses. But Eastern systems of holistic healing view the eyes as mirrors of physical health.

Eye problems reflect problems with the internal organs, usually the liver and kidneys.

The book offers Taoist healing sound exercises for strengthening the liver and kidneys, as well as seven internal Chi Kung exercises and Dao-Yin self-massage practices for toning the organ meridians.

It also provides extensive dietary recommendations, including a complete Ayurvedic analysis of the three main nutritional body types.

The wide variety of eye-strengthening exercises includes the Egyptian Black Dot technique, the Taoist Long Swing technique, the Tai Chi Rocker Eye technique and relaxing Yoga Eye Palming techniques.

Rather than viewing the ciliary muscle within the eye as the only muscle responsible for focus, these exercises improve focus by training all of the muscles surrounding the eyes. With attention to improved diet, physical exercise and these proven eye-training techniques, readers can restore their vision to vibrant health.
