Presented by Valley Community Church at the Taubman Art Museum | Workshop | 2pm-5pm
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 neuroscientific views about brain, mind and consciousness. His challenge to better comprehend this relates to a revolutionary shift now underway within our modern scientific understanding. 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 further explains how spiritually transformative experiences are quite common, and how science is waking up to this reality.
In this workshop, Dr. Alexander will explain some of the essential lessons he has learned and the paramount importance of love in our spiritual health and healing. Ms. Newell will share the advanced 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 discusses the heart’s crucial role in moving us away from the linguistic brain and provides profound insight on personal experience. Ms. Newell will lead the group in a guided sound meditation to experience for themselves that the answers truly lie within us all. There will be ample time to process, ask questions and discuss how to integrate revelations from meditation into everyday living.
