Lecture for the Charleston Jung Society
Join Eben Alexander MD, NY Times best-selling author of Proof of Heaven and co-author of Living in a Mindful Universe, for a discussion on consciousness and the mindful universe. While in coma with his brain shut down in 2008, Dr. Eben Alexander 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. His challenge to better comprehend this experience relates to a revolutionary shift now underway within our modern scientific understanding.
We live in a mindful universe, and we are each an intimate part of the whole. Transcending the limitations of the human brain, and of the physical-material realm, allows us to recognize the fundamental truth of our underlying nature. Consciousness is primary to all of existence and fortunately, we can all access this fountain of information and gain firsthand knowledge of it. Accessing this infinite awareness, and the answers that lie within us all, enables us to integrate the soul’s journey into our lives here on earth and truly manifest the free will of our higher soul.
