Neurosurgeon’s Journey into the Heart of Consciousness
Speaking at the Embassy Suites directly across from the main expo
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 about his inner journey then and now, the essential lessons he has learned, the role of unconditional love, and how science is expanding its boundaries to acknowledge the fundamental importance of consciousness in all that is, leading to a synthesis of science and spirituality.
The brain serves as a filter to limit consciousness, but by going within we can bypass that filter and expand our awareness to connect with something greater than our individual self. By cultivating a relationship with our inner world, it becomes clear how finding inner peace and wholeness provides a larger perspective of our interconnected soul journeys. Using advanced tools for brainwave entrainment meditation produced by Sacred Acoustics, you will personally explore how to move away from the linguistic brain to access profound insights from within, and ultimately from the universe.
Academic neurosurgeon Dr. Eben Alexander III, whose career includes decades as a physician
and associate professor at Harvard Medical School and revered teaching hospitals, was once
staunchly committed to the materialist world view — the belief that the physical world is all that
exists. His scientific belief system was altered by his 2008 transcendental near-death experience
(NDE), an odyssey into another realm during a week-long coma. Despite a bleak medical prognosis,
Dr. Alexander awoke to make an inexplicable return to full health. His medical case and recovery
were validated in the peer-reviewed Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease. Since his NDE, Dr.
Alexander has been reconciling his rich spiritual experience with quantum physics, cosmology and
the philosophy of mind. Dr. Alexander speaks around the world to educate about the role that
consciousness plays in wellness, healing and recovery.
A pioneering scientist and modern thought leader, Dr. Alexander has been featured in more than
400 media interviews including for ABC-TV’s Good Morning America and 20/20, The Dr. Oz
Show, Oprah’s Super Soul Sunday, Larry King Now, Fox and Friends, Discovery Channel,
Biography Channel and numerous international radio, digital and podcasts.
His books are available in more than 40 countries: Proof of Heaven: A Neurosurgeon’s Journey into
the Afterlife, The Map of Heaven: How Science, Religion, and Ordinary People Are Proving the
Afterlife, and Living in a Mindful Universe: A Neurosurgeon’s Journey into the Heart of
Consciousness, co-authored with Sacred Acoustics co-founder Karen Newell.
