Faber BIRREN

Color Psychology and Color Therapy: A Factual Study of the Influence of Color on Human Life

2013 Reprint of 1950 Edition. Full facsimile of the original edition, not reproduced with Optical Recognition Software. American writer Faber Birren devoted his life to color and it’s effects on human life. After writing around 25 texts on the topic, it would be safe to say his work is considered highly among color experts and psychologists around the world. Birren’s work has a strong focus on linking how humans perceive colors to how it makes them react. He writes, “Good smelling colors are pink, lilac, orchid, cool green, aqua blue.” Birren explores the work of several physicians, scientists and doctors, mainly the German psychoanalyst and physician Felix Deutsch, whose findings throw important light not only on medical practice with references to color but on the whole psychology of color.

Creative Color – Faber Birren

The author demonstrates in Creative Color his exciting thesis: A knowledge of perception is the springboard to a far more inventive use of color in art today. By following Creative Color and performing the interesting experiments at the end of every chapter, you learn how to produce–consistently–effects that artists have rarely achieved, and then only by intuition, accident or painful trial-and-error. The illustrations are not meant to be art. They are experiments in producing color effects according to known principles of perception. If such striking effects can be achieved without the slightest attempt of art, think how much more the artist can do with the same knowledge! The author has usefully included a list of Numsell-coded palettes by which his extraordinary color effects may be precisely duplicated.

The profoundly positive effect that light has on both the immune system and a person’s emotional stability is examined in this informative reference that pays particular attention to naturally lit interior spaces. Although architects and physicians in the ancient world recognized that the light levels necessary to promote well-being were much higher than those required for vision, the knowledge seems to have been lost from regular practice. Bringing together historical evidence, traditional wisdom, and the latest scientific findings, this comprehensive reference explains how to use light—especially sunlight—to promote health in architecture and enclosed environments.

Jacob Israel LIBERMAN

LUMINOUS LIFE: How the Science of Light Unlocks the Art of Living

Let Light Guide Your Life”
The most important things in life are our health and happiness. Yet most of us are neither healthy nor happy. We have been led to believe that if we think ahead and make the right choices, we can manifest our dreams. Yet despite our best efforts, we still have more disease and discontent than ever before. Is it possible that our essential ideas about life are flawed?

We are all aware of the impact of sunlight on a plant’s growth and development. But few of us realize that a plant actually “sees” where light is emanating from and positions itself to be in optimal alignment with it. This phenomenon, however, is not just occurring in the plant kingdom — humans are also fundamentally directed by light. In Luminous Life, Dr. Jacob Israel Liberman integrates scientific research, clinical practice, and direct experience to demonstrate how the luminous intelligence we call light effortlessly guides us toward health, contentment, and a life filled with purpose.

TAKE OFF YOUR GLASSES AND SEE – Author Jacob Israel Liberman

A Mind/Body Approach to Expanding Your Eyesight and Insight

This revolutionary new look at vision will broaden your understanding of how you see and how you can see without your glasses or contact lenses. 
   Take Off Your Glasses and See shows you how to free yourself from the crutch of prescription lenses, to build your self-confidence and awareness, and to open up your inner and outer vision in order to see more clearly.
   Jacob Liberman, an internationally recognized authority on holistic vision care, explains how most vision problems are the result of an unconscious decision to “close your eyes” to emotional discomfort or pain, and how increasingly powerful corrective lenses only encourage eyesight to withdraw even further. By removing lenses and practicing breath- and movement-awareness techniques to shift your perception, you can reintegrate the original disruption in the mind/body system. Dr. Liberman’s approach can help you join the thousands who have escaped from the self-defeating cycle of poor vision.
