Vibravision Foundation’s journey to America’s Real Deal

The Vibravision Foundation’s Journey to America’s Real Deal

By | Blog, Vibravision Foundation, Vibravision Techniques | One Comment

Vibravision has come a long way in America since Nate and Mike Zeleznick arranged for Vibravision trainers and specialists to visit Utah in 1999. Currently, the Vibravision Foundation team is in Texas filming for the first season of the America’s Real Deal TV show. Below, we will explore the Vibravision Foundation’s journey to America’s Real Deal and how you can become part of the journey.

How the Vibravision Foundation Got to This Point

In 1999, Nate and Mike Zeleznick brought numerous Vibravision experts to the United States. Previously, it had only been available in Indonesia, where MP trainers introduced it to the public in 1989. Soon after it was introduced, Kopassus, Indonesia’s Special Forces, practiced the technique to improve their night vision. Blind individuals also began to train so they could sense their surroundings without the use of sight.

During the 1999 trip to the USA, Vibravision specialists demonstrated their skills at Weber State University, the Utah Schools for the Deaf and the Blind, many news stations, and the Indonesian Embassy in Washington, DC.

Over the next year, Mike and Nate trained extensively in Merpati Putih and were officially recognized as the first American MP members in 2000. In the coming years, both would travel to Indonesia many times and continue to climb the ranks of MP. In the process, they learned more about Vibravision. In fact, Mike almost lost a game of pool to a Vibravision practitioner wearing a blindfold.

Finally, after six months of intensive training in Jakarta in 2013, Mike was able to become a Vibravision trainer. In 2014, he started the first Vibravision class in America. And, it has grown from there. MP USA has performed demonstrations and earned the support from optometrists, blind individuals, politicians, and more.

What Is America’s Real Deal?

Vibravision Foundation’s journey to America’s Real DealThe founder and CEO of Independent Stock Market (ISM), Adam Brandley, is spearheading America’s Real Deal, and ISM is powering the project. The original shark from Shark Tank and the inventor of the infomercial, Kevin Harrington, is hosting the new TV show.

The show was created to help investors support entrepreneurs with brilliant ideas. Instead of attracting your usual millionaires and Wall Street types, the show aims to introduce regular TV viewers to the world of investing. If you are 18 years old or over and see something you like on the show, you can invest, refer people to the business, buy their items or services, or vote for the business.

How Vibravision Fits into America’s Real Deal

Vibravision Foundation’s journey to America’s Real DealFirst of all, we want to thank Adam Brandley, who has been a big supporter of Vibravision since he witnessed the technique’s abilities firsthand and saw how it has the potential to help both sighted and blind people.

Because of Vibravision’s demonstrated effectiveness and power to transform lives, the foundation has been selected to pitch their business idea on America’s Real Deal. This week, Mike and Nate are traveling to Fort Worth’s Stockyard Station with Vibravision team members, Angie Anderson and her son TJ. If all goes well, the foundation will be able to offer Vibravision to a much larger audience.

How You Can Get Involved

Keep your eyes peeled for when America’s Real Deal is streaming or showing on your preferred media outlet. We will let you know through our blog when the Vibravision pitch is airing. In the meantime, here are a few resources you should check out:

What’s New at the Vibravision Foundation for the Blind?

By | Blog, Martial Arts for the Blind, Vibravision Techniques | No Comments

We always have a lot going on at MP USA and the Vibravision Foundation. We like to stay busy and to look for new ways to introduce more people to the life-enhancing skills and practices offered by Merpati Putih. In today’s blog, we thought we’d take a moment to share with you what’s coming down the pipeline. So, without further ado, here is what’s new at the Vibravision Foundation for the Blind.

Vibravision on America’s Real Deal TV Show

Vibravision Foundation for the BlindAmerica’s Real Deal is a new TV show spearheaded by Adam Brandley, the founder of Independent Stock Market (ISM), which is powering the project. He has teamed up with host Kevin Harrington, who was the original “shark” from “Shark Tank.” Harrington is also considered the inventor of the infomercial.

The goal of the show is to help pair people with brilliant ideas and investors. But, the investors aren’t Wall Street tycoons or millionaire hot shots. They are regular television viewers. Everyone who watches the show and is at least 18 years of age has the opportunity to vote for businesses, buy their items or services, refer people to the businesses, and invest.

Appearing on America’s Real Deal is an excellent opportunity to help Vibravision reach visually impaired people outside of the Ogden, Utah area. The show, which is just about to kick off its first season, has a nationwide following, and the powers of Vibravision will be on display coming this June. Our goal is not only to be this year’s America’s Real Deal Champion, but we also want to help more people take in their physical surroundings without the use of sight.

Vibravision Training for Sighted People

Vibravision Foundation for the BlindThough they get the most life-changing results, visually-impaired individuals are not the only people who can benefit from Vibravision. MP USA offers weekly classes for sighted people aged ten years and older. If you would like to get a little idea of what Vibravision is about, you should come check out one of our Energy Intro Classes taking place on Wednesday nights in June: the 13th, 20th, and 27th. The classes run from 7 pm to 9 pm.

These classes also serve as an intro to our Wealth of Health Program. Before joining our Vibravision classes, sighted individuals must engage in six months of Wealth of Health training. The reason for this is that we want both youth and adults to know how to build their energy, meditate, and be prepared for the Vibravision training. By participating in the Wealth of Health Program’s meditation and mindfulness aspects, you will receive the added benefit of improved overall health, happiness, and focus. The next Wealth of Health semester starts in July.

Immersion Classes Are Coming in August

Vibravision Foundation for the BlindIn August, we are offering both sighted and blind 5-Day Immersion retreats. From August 6th through the 10th, you can take part in our Level 1 classes. This is meant to be an entry-level immersion into Vibravision techniques. Depending on the class sizes, we may have sighted and blind/low vision students pair up to help each other learn. After all, part of achieving mastery is learning how to teach a skill.

Building on what was learned in our Level 1 class, we will teach sighted and blind students a whole lot more in our Level 2 instruction from August 20th through the 24th. All of the classes are eight hours per day and include an intro to Vibravision, sensing and implementation, breathing techniques, meditations, power building exercises, testing, and a certificate of completion.

If you are interested in experiencing Vibravision first hand, contact MP USA at (866) 666-7872, Option 1 today to learn more.

The Vibravision Foundation: A Non-Profit Organization for the Blind in Ogden Utah

By | Blog, Vibravision Foundation, Vibravision Techniques | 2 Comments

If you could help a blind person to see, would you do it? Utah is full of kind-hearted individuals who are ready to assist others at the drop of a hat. So, we have a feeling every one of you reading this would jump at the chance to help the visually impaired. Fortunately, there is now a non-profit organization for the blind in Ogden Utah. Below, we will learn more about this non-profit, explore some success stories, and let you know how you can assist blind individuals.

What Is the Vibravision Foundation?

If you follow our blog at all, you know that Vibravision is an ancient technique in Merpati Putih that allows both sighted and visually-impaired people to “see” through the use of vibrational energy and nothing else.

In order to get the most out of the training, blind students must totally immerse themselves in the Vibravision training. This level of training does not come cheap. The Vibravision Foundation was founded to help visually-impaired individuals of all economic means afford the classes. The goal of the Foundation is to teach all blind people who are interested the art of Vibravision. We believe this is a technique that can greatly enhance their lives and want to make it as readily available as possible.

What Are the Blind Immersion Classes?

non-profit organization for the blind in Ogden UtahThere are weekend, five-day, and one-month immersion classes available for visually-impaired people. The 16-hour-long weekend course is designed for students who want to see what Vibravision is about but don’t want to commit to the longer term immersion.

The five-day immersion takes place over five days. Blind students receive a uniform, DVD of the event, and a certificate of completion. And, since it is a true immersion course, lodging and food are also provided. There are two levels to the five-day program. Level 2 builds upon what students learn in Level 1. The next Level 1 course is scheduled for August 6th through 10th, 2018.

The one-month immersion program perfects the skills learned in the five-day immersion programs. The classes take place every weekday for eight hours.

Success Stories

non-profit organization for the blind in Ogden UtahFor the last six months, Mike Armstrong and Tiffany Shearon of Phoenix, AZ, who are both blind, have been making the trip up to Ogden for training once per month. The regular practice continues to develop their non-visual perception. Consequently, they have both shown marked improvements in orientation and mobility.

As we discussed in a recent blog, Mike applied for the Holman Prize to receive funding to be able to study Vibravision full-time for a year. He is currently a semifinalist in the process. Both Mike and Tiffany point to Vibravision as having changed their lives, and compared to the tools they had been taught previously, Vibravision is much different and has provided a new level of spatial awareness.

What You Can Do to Help

If you are inspired to help blind individuals after learning about the Vibravision Foundation, you’re in luck. There are several ways you can support the visually-impaired to achieve their goals of becoming more aware of their surroundings. First, you can choose to donate any amount to our general donation fund. This will be split up among applicants who have a financial need. Secondly, you can choose to sponsor or donate to a specific applicant.

Non-Visual Skills Training for Blind or Visually Impaired Adults and Children

By | Blog, Martial Arts for the Blind, Vibravision Techniques | One Comment

If you’ve somehow stumbled across this blog post without any introduction to Vibravision, let us first welcome you, and secondly, you should get a quick little explanation of what Vibravision is here on our main page. So far, MP USA has taught non-visual skills training for blind or visually-impaired to several individuals looking for a better connection to their environment. There are classes available to both sighted and blind students, but today, we are going to focus on what we have to offer visually-impaired adults and children.

What Types of Vibravision Classes Are Available?

We currently offer three types of immersion classes for visually-impaired and blind individuals:

Blind 5-Day Immersion (Level 1)

Students are thoroughly immersed in the practice and technique of Vibravision during this eight-hours-per-day, five-day class. In order to learn faster, each visually-impaired participant is paired with a sighted student who slowly increases the level of difficulty. Our next Level 1 immersion event is May 7th through the 11th of this year.

Blind 5-Day Immersion (Level 2)

visually-impaired adults and childrenJust like the Level 1 event, the five-day Level 2 immersion classes are eight hours per day and build upon what was learned in the first level while adding much more. Though it may not be necessary, sight-impaired students may again be paired with someone with a sighted individual to grow, train, and learn together. The next Level 2 immersion event is May 21st through the 25th.

Blind 1-Month Immersion

For blind/low vision people who want to perfect the skills and talents they learned in the five-day class, the 1-Month Immersion Class is the way to go. Classes are eight hours every weekday for a month. This class is also open to vision and medical professionals.

Each of the courses introduces participants to Vibravision and offers breathing techniques, power building exercises, sensing and implementation, and specific meditations. Included in the cost of the courses are food, lodging, and a uniform. At the end of the event, students will be tested on what they learned. They will then receive a certificate of completion as well as a DVD of the event that they can review and share with others.

What Can You Expect to Achieve after a Vibravision Immersion Event?

visually-impaired adults and childrenPlease take a moment to watch this video we recently shot: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mNeK5jYTgIU&feature=youtu.be

Back in December, Lilly Vu of Phoenix, AZ came to visit us for a three-day Vibravision immersion event for the blind. Recently, she came back up to our studio in Ogden, Utah to further her training. This time, she brought Nicole Coyle with her, who is also from Arizona. The video above gives you a quick glimpse into the level of skill Lilly was able to achieve after just four days of actual training with Mas Mike Zeleznick. These results are not unusual. In fact, they are the norm.

Come See Vibravision in Action for Yourself

visually-impaired adults and childrenEven if Vibravision has been validated/endorsed by television personalities, medical professionals, politicians, and countless spectators and blind people, there are sure to be skeptics among you who need to see it in action in order to believe it. We’re the same way. Consequently, we are hosting a one-night-only demonstration on Friday, March 9th from 6:30 to 8 pm. In our studio, you can see the power of Vibravision firsthand. It will be a fun night for the whole family. Admission is free, and we’ll give away prizes.

If you are interested in learning more about non-visual skills training for blind or visually-impaired individuals, come to the demonstration next Friday or feel free to contact MP USA for more information. See you on March 9th!

3 Ways You Can Help and Support Blind Students at the Vibravision Foundation

By | Blog, Vibravision Foundation, Vibravision Techniques | 2 Comments

Vibravision is a part of Merpati Putih, the martial arts of the Indonesian Royal Family. It teaches individuals to rely on other senses besides sight to take in their surroundings. This makes it ideal for helping blind people find their way around. Unfortunately, Vibravision requires intensive teaching that is not cheap. If you would like to help visually impaired people develop a new way to navigate the world, check out these ways to support students at the Vibravision Foundation:

1. Direct General Donations

support blind students at the Vibravision FoundationThe Vibravision Foundation for the Blind was created to teach Vibravision techniques to visually impaired and blind individuals. They believe that Vibravision has the ability to greatly improve their lives. The Foundation exists to match donors with applicants for the program.

One method for supporting blind students is to make a direct general donation to the Vibravision Foundation on their website. Depending on the number of applicants in need of scholarships, the money you donate may be split up among several worthy individuals.

 2. Crowdfunding by Sponsoring an Applicant

support blind students at the Vibravision FoundationThe Vibravision Foundation has special crowdfunding resources for blind students. They encourage everyone who is applying for funding for their Vibravision courses to start a crowdfunding campaign. This is because they believe that this initiative will lead to a better, stronger learning experience.

If there is a specific blind person you’d like to see take the course, start a crowdfunding page. It takes less than five minutes. Once your page is approved, you can start sharing it on social media with family and friends to bring in more donations. The more creative you get, the more successful your campaign will be.

3. Install Solar Panels

support blind students at the Vibravision FoundatioThe first two ways to support students at the Vibravision Foundation probably made a lot of intuitive sense. But, how do solar panels help blind people afford tuition for Vibravision classes? Well, Rocky Mountain Renewable Energy has teamed up with the Vibravision Foundation to provide support for the blind.

For each solar sale, $100/kW will be donated to the Foundation. They offer solar plans that are no money down. And, they recommend that you act soon because, on November 15th, the net metering rules change, and homeowners will only get half of the benefits of solar power generation. Unless you are grandfathered in by signing up now. Located here in Ogden, Rocky Mountain offers a broad range of solar panels that are customized for the space, color, layout, and shape that works best for you aesthetically and financially.

You can get more information at this link or call Chris Harris at (801) 808-5827.

Vibravision Immersion Class for the Blind: November 4th-8th

We’ve found that the best way to learn Vibravision is to completely immerse blind individuals in the classes. Therefore, for a week, we thoroughly immerse the students in the practice and technique. The classes take place for eight hours per day Monday through Thursday and for three hours on Friday. All courses for the blind include a DVD of the event, food, certificate of completion, a uniform, and lodging. Our next immersion class is November 4th through the 8th. You can find more details here.

If you are a sighted individual who would like to use Vibravision to become more aware of your surroundings in the light and dark, we offer several different courses that begin during the first week of January, April, July, and October. You can also try an introductory class before you commit in March, June, September, and December. You can learn more here.
