Join New York Times best-selling author Eben Alexander MD and co-founder of Sacred Acoustics Karen Newell on an exploration of life and consciousness. 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 The Map of Heaven,Dr. Alexander explains how spiritually transformative experiences are quite common, and how science is waking up to this reality. In this special presentation, Dr. Alexander will share more about his inner journey then and now and the essential lessons he has learned. He and Karen Newell will describe the 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. Those in attendance will be invited to participate in a short guided exercise to experience for themselves that the answers truly lie within us all. Q&A will follow the presentation.
