New York Times best-selling author Dr. Eben Alexander and co-founder of Sacred Acoustics Karen Newell are joined by Dr. Gary Schwartz, Ph.D., professor at the University of Arizona and director of its Laboratory for Advances in Consciousness and Health, for a special weekend workshop intensive. Together they will guide you on a journey of personal exploration that will expand your consciousness and forever change your perception of life, death and reality.
In 2008, Dr. Alexander spent seven days in a coma due to severe bacterial meningitis. While in coma with his brain shut down, he experienced a spectacular odyssey to realms beyond our known physical universe—an ultra-real journey that ran counter to all conventional neuro-scientific views about brain, mind and consciousness. As detailed in his book, Proof of Heaven: A Neurosurgeon’s Journey into the Afterlife, sound provided the crucial engine for traversing spiritual dimensions during his incredible experience. In fact, sound has been used for millennia to access expanded states of consciousness.
During the weekend, Dr. Alexander will share stories about his inner journey then and now, essential lessons he has learned, and how science is finally expanding its boundaries to acknowledge the fundamental importance of consciousness in all that is, leading to a synthesis of science and spirituality. Dr. Schwartz will disclose some of the groundbreaking scientific research being done in his lab that will challenge your notions of reality on the other side of the veil. And, Ms. Newell will describe tools developed by Sacred Acoustics that each of us can use to explore our own connection to inner knowing and the deeper realities of our existence. She will lead the group in several experiential journeys with sound during the weekend. Each meditation experience opens us to deeper understandings, discovering that the answers lie within us all. Shared discussion will show how to integrate the insights from meditation into everyday living.
This weekend is for seekers who wish to expand their awareness, experience deep connections with spirit, challenge their notions of what may seem to be beyond physical perception, join in spirited discussions, and learn about the latest research –all in the incredible power and majesty of Sedona.
