About the book

* Life Ignition Tools

Use Nature's Playbook to
Energize Your Brain, Spark Ideas, and Ignite Action

This groundbreaking book from Harvard bioinspirationalist Jeff Karp is the essential holistic guide on how to transform intention into action and feel truly alive every day.



So glad you’re here.

I am truly grateful to connect with you to to share LIT, or Life Ignition Tools.

As a kid struggling with undiagnosed ADHD, I sat in the back of my second grade classroom completely lost, unable to follow along and feeling pretty demoralized. That is, until the fateful day I discovered the first of these 12 tools. Early on, these were just survival tools to help me get by and now they’ve evolved into something much more. Wings to fly. From fear to boundless curiosity, LIT sparks the utmost connection and creativity. LIT lifts us up from the rut of routine and re-sensitizes our aliveness, to ultimately reclaim our beginner’s mind – to see everything afresh.

In my Harvard lab, our amazing team designs innovations inspired by nature and guided by LIT’s holistic tools — including the radical art of questioning — to solve urgent biomedical problems to help patients thrive and doctors do their critical work.

The best part? These tools are for everyone. They’re universally accessible. LIT includes interviews and stories from 40 unique individuals — Nobel laureates, celebrated artists, athletes, indigenous leaders who all testify to the power of these principles.

In this era, rife with conflict, we could use all the love and illumination we can get. Whether you use LIT for personal growth, to attain professional goals, or to delve deep into consciousness — welcome!

Let’s step off the beaten path and onto a new one that is positively LIT!
