Join New York Times best-selling author Eben Alexander MD and co-founder of Sacred Acoustics Karen Newell on an exploration of science, spirit and sound. 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.
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. 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 on an experiential journey with sound to discover that the answers lie within us all. There will be time to process, ask questions and discuss how to integrate the insights from meditation into everyday living.
A book signing follows the discussion.
