Interview with Dr Eben Alexander & Karen Newell about near-death

In this interview I meet with former academic neurosurgeon Dr Eben Alexander, MD and co-founder of Sacred Acoustics Karen Newell in a conversation about lessons from a near-death experience and the afterlife.

Near-death experiences

Eben had a near-death experience that completely altered his life in 2008. In this interview, he shares the many revelations he had from his NDE, what an NDE can teach us and also how he was able to integrate the experience. We also touched upon topics such as;

  • are there any accidents?
  • what is a life review?
  • what are shared-death experiences?
  • and is our death date predestined?

Sacred acoustics

His partner Karen Newell has been a great help with this, introducing Eben to sacred acoustics. Through sacred acoustic audio meditations (binaural beats) we can get our brain “out of the way” and activate the energy body. That way you can get into a deeper state of consciousness, Karen explains.

Proof of Heaven

For 54 years, Eben Alexander was a neurosurgeon who thought he had a very good idea of how the brain generated consciousness, mind and spirit. However, in the predawn hours of November 10, 2008, he was driven into a coma by a rare and mysterious bacterial meningitis-encephalitis of an unknown cause. On the seventh day, to the surprise of everyone, he started to awaken. Memories of his life had been completely deleted inside of the coma, yet he awoke with memories of a fantastic odyssey deep into another realm – more real than this earthly one! He was blessed with a complete recovery and shared his most powerful, life-changing story in his books, Living in a Mindful Universe*, Proof of Heaven* and The Map of Heaven*

Proof of Heaven: A Neurosurgeon’s Journey into the Afterlife

Alexander’s story is not a fantasy. Before he underwent his journey, he could not reconcile his knowledge of neuroscience with any belief in heaven, God, or the soul. Today Alexander is a doctor who believes that true health can be achieved only when we realize that God and the soul are real and that death is not the end of personal existence but only a transition.

Living in a Mindful Universe

How do you explain the origins of consciousness if it is not a byproduct of the brain? His challenge relates to a revolutionary shift now underway within our modern scientific understanding. Ultimately, direct experience is key to fully understanding how we are all connected through the binding force of unconditional love and its unlimited power to heal.
