Luminous Life: How the Science of Light Unlocks the Art of Living

Light is continually guiding the course of our lives via the process of presence, so we may fulfill our reason for being. Dr. Jacob Liberman will share his discoveries about light, vision, and consciousness, which have been enthusiastically endorsed by luminaries, including Deepak Chopra, Bruce Lipton, and Eckhart Tolle. www.JacobLiberman.org See workshop, Feb 17
