Changing Vision Changing Life Immersion – Harvesting Skills in the Fall

The fall is a time for harvest and abundance. In Napa, it is the season for the Napa Crush of the grapes, the time that determines a wine’s quality in a given vintage. At our Changing Vision Changing Life Immersion Training Retreat in Napa, it is the time for students new to blindness and low vision to harvest their own skills; skills that could determine the quality of their lives.

For six days, up to twenty student will have the opportunity to develop basic expertise in a breadth of areas – access technology; orientation and mobility; organization and labeling; magnification and lighting; cooking; braille and community, state and national resources. The Immersion week is full and active, emotional and supportive. The opportunity to meet and connect with others is the bounty of this harvest.

When: September 7 through 12
Where: Enchanted Hills Camp

Our next Changing Vision Changing Life week-long immersion training is set for September 7 through 12.
