West Chester University – Center for Contemplative Studies – Neuroscience & Consciousness Series
Held in The Autograph Room of the Philips Building
Consciousness is a continuum in which at every stage
we have the opportunity for learning and growth.
Join Eben Alexander MD, New York Times best-selling author of Proof of Heaven: A Neurosurgeon’s Journey into the Afterlife, for an inspiring discussion on consciousness. While in coma with his brain shut down, Dr. 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. He will share some of the insights from his near-death experience and the latest understanding about the neuroscience of consciousness and the mindful universe.
His challenge to better comprehend the lessons from his NDE relates to a revolutionary shift now underway within our modern scientific understanding. Who are we? Where did we come from, and why are we here?
Transcending the limitations of the human brain, and of the physical-material realm, allows us to recognize the fundamental truth of our underlying nature. Becoming aware of the reality of consciousness and the binding force of love will lead to unprecedented individual growth and understanding.
