Jacob Israel Liberman and Luminous Life
Luminous Life How the Science of Light Unlocks the Art of Living Jacob Israel Liberman, OD, PhD with Gina Liberman and Erik Liberman
Early in his optometric career, Dr. Jacob Liberman experienced a sudden, significant, and lasting improvement in his vision during a meditative experience. This seemingly inexplicable event led him to question standard medical beliefs and practices, to clinically investigate notions of light and color therapy, and even to wonder if our fundamental ideas about life are flawed. The importance of light is easily observed in the way plants position themselves toward it and it guides numerous animals on migratory journeys that put GPS technology to shame. Liberman shows how humans hinder this inherent navigational system with thought, worry, and fear. Then, drawing on quantum physics, neuroscience, spiritual traditions, and years of clinical research, he details simple practices — including vision, “color homeopathy,” and attention-focusing exercises — that are practically effortless yet profoundly effective. These ways of “looking less, seeing more” provoke transformation that, like Liberman’s vision improvement, is rapid, significant, and permanent.
Jacob Isreal Liberman, OD, P H D, developed the first patented, FDA-cleared medical device for vision improvement in 2006. A popular speaker at venues including Unity Churches, he has been featured in numerous print, television, radio, and online media. He lives in Kula, Maui, Hawaii. JacobLiberman.org
