Changing Vision Changing Life Immersion Training at Enchanted Hills Retreat

The intensified and collaborative Changing Vision Changing Life Immersion training brings together up to 18 low vision and blind adults from all over Northern California to learn essential daily living skills; an introduction to braille and access technology; cane travel and mobility basics, and most important, the connection to other students who are also there to learn.

“With the skills, the inspirational role models and the support gleaned from [this] training experience, I feel more determined and confident that I can continue on the path to greater independence.”
-June 2013 Immersion participant, Perla Kohs
