From the Publisher

Born blind and declared incurably blind after a series of childhood operations left him with only a slight ability to discern light and shadow, Meir Schneider remained convinced that his handicap was not permanent. As a teenager, he began work with two teachers who gave him exercises and techniques to reverse his blindness. Within four years he had gained a remarkable degree of vision and begun to develop a system of therapeutic exercise combining movement, breathing, and mental imagery. He also began working with people whose physical problems ranged from chronic headaches to polio and muscular dystrophy, inspiring them with his example, enthusiasm, and faith — miraculous recoveries ensued.

Sections in the book give specific guidelines for healing back problems, arthritis, multiple sclerosis, breathing difficulties, eye problems, and muscular dystrophy. Movement for Self-Healing parallels the stories of Schneider and the people he has worked with, detailing his holistic methods of stimulating the natural healing powers of the body, offering a practical guide to specific exercises, and articulating a profound message of inspiration and hope.

How the Blind See the Stars

The new moon night was dark and rich in stars. The line at the bottom of the steps was 200 deep and growing. This was a busy public night at the Martz/Kohl Observatory atop Robin Hill, in Frewsburg, New York, and the rickety old ladder up to the eyepiece of our biggest ‘scope was getting a workout. When nothing more than space itself and a telescope separates an eye from the open sky, it’s inspiring—a direct view to the heavens cannot be matched by pixels on a screen. On clear nights, that was our promise to the public. We gave everybody one full minute atop our makeshift staircase to take the

Pushing The Limits Of Assistive Technology During The Boston Marathon

AT&T Erich Manser has run 17 marathons. Legally blind, he describes his vision as "almost like if you look through a drinking straw that you cover with wax paper" due to a condition called retinitis pigmentosa. Erich Manser finished his eighth Boston Marathon on Monday, but this race was different than any one before it: It was his first time completing the course with an assistive technology called Aira. Because Manser, 44, is legally blind due to a disease called retinitis pigmentosa, a sighted guide has run alongside him during past marathons. Yesterday, in addition to that guide, he also w

Why Blind People Are Better at Math

Bernard Morin developed glaucoma at an early age and was blind by the time he was six years old. Despite his inability to see, Morin went on to become a master topologist—a mathematician who studies the intrinsic properties of geometric forms in space—and earned renown for his visualization of an inside-out sphere. For sighted people, it can be difficult to imagine learning math, let alone mastering it, without vision (or even with it). In grade schools, mathematics instruction tends to rely heavily on visual aids—our fingers, pieces of pie, and equations scribbled on paper. Psychology and ne
