There is something that we can do about it.  On this show our guest, Dr. Ray Gottlieb,  will introduce the “Read Without Glasses Method”, which is a series of exercises that stimulate the focusing power of our eyes; making them sharper, more flexible and relaxed.  Just like any other part of or body, our eyes respond positively to exercise, and this easy to learn, simple to practice method shows us how to keep our near vison as clear and sharp as possible.

    Dr. Gottlieb has been an eye doctor for over five decades, with a specialty in vision training and vision therapy.  He developed and refined the “Read Without Glasses Method” in his private practice in 1976, and is currently the Dean of the College of Syntonic Optometry.  So please join us for this leadiing edge discussion, and have your questions ready for our guest.

    Faith Beyond Belief with Author Dr. Margaret Placentra Johnston

    in Self Help

    “When winning becomes too important, it blurs concern for the way our actions affect others; it necessarily sets up someone on the opposing side who must “lose.” The win/??lose mentality prominent in our society is a symptom of a much larger problem—a spiritual problem, in fact.” - Dr. Margaret Placentra Johnston

    After practicing Optometry for over three decades - helping people to see better in the physical world - Dr. Margaret Placentra Johnston now offers clearer vision of a different sort - a broader perspective about religion and spirituality than what the conventional world typically recognizes.

    The author of Faith Beyond Belief: Stories of Good People Who Left Their Church Behind, Dr. Johnston feels the spiritual development stages have the power to bring an end to religious intolerance and should be part of the general knowledge of our culture.  Faith Beyond Belief has won a number of awards including being named the Gold Winner of the 2013 Nautilus Book Award in Religion/Spirituality.  Visit www.FaithBeyondBelief-book.com.  Watch the book trailer.
