Living in a Mindful Universe. Science, Spirituality and Consciousness - Eben Alexander and Karen Newell, May 20, 2018

"All of human knowing is
deeply rooted in personal
experience." -
Eben Alexander, M.D.
"In matters of science, the authority of thousands is not worth the humble reasoning of one single person." - Galileo Galilei

His discoveries with the telescope revolutionized astronomy and paved the way for the acceptance of the Copernican heliocentric system, but his advocacy of that system eventually resulted in an Inquisition process against him. Britannica

Interview with Eben Alexander and Karen Newell, Wendy's Coffeehouse

Dr. Eben Alexander's NDE was a game changer, gaining national exposure and attention due to a couple of crucial elements. One: His status as a Neurosurgeon offered credibility. Two: The fact his vital signs were monitored during the process offered new insight into what transpires in the physical body while one who appears to be dead - experiences conscious awareness on another plane.

Proof of Heaven and The Map of Heaven detail and explore that account. A refresher (or an intro if you are unfamiliar with his story), Dr. Alexander also includes the summary of his NDE on his website: "My experience in Coma."

For more in depth information, watch the 2014 presentation provided by the Theosophical Society. The conference theme was "Science and the Experience of Consciousness." Listed among the presenters were physicist Amit Goswami, consciousness researcher and psychologist Dean Radin, physicist and psychic researcher Russell Targ.

Fast forward to Living in a Mindful Universe. Book three is a collaboration with Brainwave entrainment innovator and co-creator of Sacred Accoustics, Karen Newell, seeking to merge Science and Spirituality.

Chapters in the book address moving beyond Materialist Science, trusting personal experience and learning soul lessons.

During our interview I previewed a sample of the Sacred Heart audio from Karen's Sacred Accoustics library. The free 20 minute audio sample Karen mentioned is here. I will be following up in a second interview with Karen to talk more about the specifics of her audio work.

One of the perks with the book is a Free 33-day course. Link to the 33 day Journey into the Heart of Consciousness. You can also join Eben and Karen for a Weekend Retreat - Sept 2018 - Journey into the Heart of Consciousness.

“To experience thinking outside the brain is to enter a world of instantaneous connections that make ordinary thinking (i.e those aspects limited by the physical brain and the speed of light) seem like some hopelessly sleepy and plodding event. Our truest, deepest self is completely free." - Eben Alexander, Proof of Heaven: A Neurosurgeon's Journey into the Afterlife
