Light is the Key to Optimal Health, Contentment and a Life Filled With Purpose
Dear BBS Host:
Your eyes are the windows to your soul — the key to “seeing the light” that expands your consciousness, allowing you to experience greater presence and aliveness than ever before.
That’s the premise in Dr. Liberman’s newest book, Luminous Life: How the Science of Light Unlocks the Art of Living. Integrating 40 years of research, practice and direct experience, this groundbreaking book presents a new science of life.
Dr. Liberman’s journey began early in his optometric career, when he experienced a sudden, significant, and permanent improvement in his vision during a meditative experience. This seemingly inexplicable event led him to question standard medical beliefs and practices, investigate the therapeutic value of light and color, and wonder if our fundamental ideas about life are flawed.
His initial research revealed that most of us are not looking where we think we’re looking. Our “mind’s eye” is not focused on the same location as our physical eyes. But when this misalignment is corrected through simple practices, vision improves and presence expands, impacting many other important aspects of our lives.
Dr. Liberman also found that what’s “catching our eye” is actually looking for us. So he conducted an experiment, allowing everything that “caught his eye” to guide his action. After attempting to respond to life, rather than trying to direct it, he experienced an extraordinary level of ease, joy and connection with everything that entered his awareness. Things flowed without effort or struggle. By allowing the light that attracted him to effortlessly focus his eyes and attention, he experienced true “presence” — and discovered that light is always guiding us and illuminating our path. According to Dr. Liberman, “Presence is an involuntary response to an invitation by life’s intelligence pointing us toward our maximum potential.”
Despite popular belief, presence is not about thinking ahead or trying to be here now. It’s a naturally occurring state that arises when our eyes and mind, activated by light, focus on the same place at the same time. In response to light’s guidance, our eyes begin an intricate dance of aiming, focusing, tracking, and teaming, bringing us to extraordinary states of awareness without effort.
Dr. Liberman is the author of two other seminal books on light and vision, and the developer of the first FDA-cleared medical device for vision improvement. His years of clinical research and direct experience have led him to a new philosophy of life that can be implemented by anyone at home, resulting in profound transformation that is rapid, significant, and permanent.
Dr. Liberman will fascinate and illuminate your audience as he explains how:
- Every function of the body is guided by and dependent upon light.
- Our receptivity to light impacts our health and relationships on every level.
- A series of simple exercises can help us live more effortlessly in “the zone.”
- We are continually guided by the intelligence of life, revealing the true meaning of presence.
