An Open-Ended Conversation with Karen Newell & Eben Alexander
New Thinking Allowed Audio Podcast
Eben Alexander and Karen Newell are coauthors of Living in a Mindful Universe. Eben is also author of Proof of Heaven and The Map of Heaven. Karen is also the cofounder of a company called Sacred Acoustics. Her website is sacredacoustics.com. Here they review scientific developments relating to the concept of “objective idealism” and “top-down causality” – the idea that the universe is not dead matter, but is mindlike at its very essence. They share how one can experience this directly through meditation and other spiritual practices. One can even attain states of consciousness akin to the near-death experience. Most profoundly expressed was their appreciation for love. New Thinking Allowed host, Jeffrey Mishlove, PhD, hosted and co-produced the original Thinking Allowed public television series. He is the recipient of the only doctoral diploma in “Parapsychology” ever awarded by an accredited university (University of California, 1980).

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 a 2008 transcendental near-death experience (NDE) in which a bacterial infection severely damaged his brain as he fell into a week-long coma during which he experienced an odyssey into another realm. Despite a bleak medical prognosis, Dr. Alexander awoke to make an inexplicable return to full health. He has since become a pioneering scientist and modern thought leader in the emerging science that acknowledges the primacy of consciousness in the universe, he is the author of the New York Times #1 bestseller 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.Website: ebenalexander.comMore detailed bio.Karen Newell is an author and specialist in personal development with a diverse body of work that rests upon the foundation of heart-centered consciousness. As an innovator in the emerging field of brainwave entrainment audio meditation, Karen empowers others in their journeys of self-discovery by demonstrating how to connect to inner guidance, achieve inspiration, improve wellness and develop intuition. She is co-founder of Sacred Acoustics, and co-author with Eben Alexander III, M.D. of Living in a Mindful Universe.More detailed bio.Website shared by Eben and Karen: innersanctumcenter.comTwice-monthly webinars mentioned during the interview.Some points discussed during this conversation: Eben’s NDE and improbable recovery, including experience of a subterranean realm, the collapse of 4-dimensional reality, his guardian angel, and a “gateway valley” in which souls reside between lives. The importance of music and sound. Binaural beats. Experiencing a life review (how we impacted others) during NDEs has been reported for over 2,000 years. Dealing with things now so they do not need to be handled during your life review. The brain does not create consciousness. Our mental states create our physical reality. Is the world about to undergo a “phase transition” to a “golden age”? The alignment of science and spirituality - the afterlife and reincarnation studied seriously. Important because mainstream society trusts science. The work of Ian Stevenson and Jim Tucker. The brain as a filter. The harmful ramifications of science not understanding consciousness as primary. Materialists are entrenched because it’s hard to admit that one’s life’s work has been based upon a misunderstanding. They are going extinct. Memory storage: in the brain or in the ‘cloud’? Kindness, compassion, love, forgiveness - feminine qualities the world needs now. The importance of discernment on the spiritual path. How would a person choose their parents and other life events? Our perspective between lives is much broader and not ego-bound. How do we know our life’s purpose and how to live it? During sleep, we interact with subtle realms. The veil shrouding humanity’s consciousness is thinning. Do we reunite with pets on the other side? Illness can be a learning experience for the soul.Discussion of this interview in the BatGap Community Facebook Group.Interview recorded April 17, 2021.Video and audio below.

Proof Of Heaven - An Interview With Dr. Eben Alexander
Today we have on Dr. Eben Alexander a neurosurgeon and author who was driven into a week long coma in 2008 and experienced a life changing journey into another realm. Once awakened he recorded his memories from his coma and he started to do research and was astonished by all the commonalities between his experience and other near-death survivors. He is the author of, Proof Of Heaven, Seeking Heaven, The Map Of Heaven, and Living in a Mindful Universe. #NDE #LifeAfterDeath #Interview Find Dr. Eben Alexander http://ebenalexander.com/ About Dr. Eben Alexander Dr. Eben Alexander spent over 25 years as an academic neurosurgeon, including 15 years at the Brigham & Women's Hospital, the Children's Hospital and Harvard Medical School in Boston. Over those years he personally dealt with hundreds of patients suffering from severe alterations in their level of consciousness. Many of those patients were rendered comatose by trauma, brain tumors, ruptured aneurysms, infections, or stroke. He thought he had a very good idea of how the brain generates consciousness, mind and spirit. In the predawn hours of November 10, 2008, he was driven into coma by a rare and mysterious bacterial meningo-encephalitis of unknown cause. He spent a week in coma on a ventilator, his prospects for survival diminishing rapidly. 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! His older son advised him to write down everything he could remember about his journey, before he read anything about near-death experiences, physics or cosmology. Six weeks later, he completed his initial recording of his remarkable journey, totaling over 20,000 words in length. Then he started reading, and was astonished by the commonalities between his journey and so many others reported throughout all cultures, continents and millennia. His journey brought key insights to the mind-body discussion and to our human understanding of the fundamental nature of reality. His experience clearly revealed that we are conscious in spite of our brain – that, in fact, consciousness is at the root of all existence. He has been blessed with a complete recovery that is inexplicable from the viewpoint of modern Western medicine. A graduate of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Dr. Alexander received his medical degree from Duke University School of Medicine in 1980. He taught neurosurgery at Harvard Medical School in Boston for fifteen years, and has performed over 4,000 neurosurgical operations. During his academic career he authored or co-authored over 150 chapters and papers in peer reviewed journals, authored or edited five books on radiosurgery and neurosurgery, and made over 230 presentations at conferences and medical centers around the world. Since his NDE, Dr. Alexander has dedicated himself to sharing information about near-death experiences and other spiritually-transformative experiences, and what they teach us about consciousness and the nature of reality. He continues to promote further research on the unifying elements of science and spirituality, and together with Karen Newell, regularly teaches others ways to tap into our greater mind and the power of the heart to facilitate enhancement of healing, relationships, creativity, guidance, and more. www.okonbros.com | @OkonBros Two bros (Eric Okon & Michael Okon) chatting and interviewing interesting people about The Secrets of the Universe, The Law of Attraction, Mysticism, Brohood, Gambling, Movies, TV, Pop Culture, Archangels, Magick, Good Food, Travel, Business, Health, Writing, Family and Mediumship.

041, Dr. Eben Alexander: Going Within--The Power and Promise of Unity Consciousness
Soul Soil: Where Agriculture and Spirit Intersect with Brooke Kornegay
“In order to rise to the challenge of addressing the global emergency known as climate change, we need to access and build a relationship with our higher soul. This connection fosters a life where we truly take stewardship of the planet and our relationship with other beings, and to the best of our ability, manifest love, kindness, and compassion for self, others, and the world. This leads us all to a better life.” Dr. Eben Alexander spent over 25 years as an academic neurosurgeon, including 15 years at the Brigham & Women’s Hospital, the Children’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School in Boston. Over those years he personally dealt with hundreds of patients suffering from severe alterations in their level of consciousness. Many of those patients were rendered comatose by trauma, brain tumors, ruptured aneurysms, infections, or stroke. He thought he had a very good idea of how the brain generates consciousness, mind and spirit. In the predawn hours of November 10, 2008, he was driven into coma by a rare and mysterious bacterial meningo-encephalitis of unknown cause. He spent a week in coma on a ventilator, his prospects for survival diminishing rapidly. 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!

His journey brought key insights to the mind-body discussion and to our human understanding of the fundamental nature of reality. His experience clearly revealed that we are conscious in spite of our brain – that, in fact, consciousness is at the root of all existence. His story offers a crucial key to the understanding of reality and human consciousness. It will have a major effect on how we view spirituality, soul and the non-material realm. In analyzing his experience, including the scientific possibilities and grand implications, he envisions a more complete reconciliation of modern science and spirituality as a natural product. He has been blessed with a complete recovery that is inexplicable from the viewpoint of modern Western medicine. In this episode… The story of Dr. Alexander’s near-death experience and the subsequent journey into the nature of reality, the mind-brain connection, free will, and debunking conventional science’s denial of the existence of consciousness Dr. Alexander’s most powerful lesson since coming out of his coma has been the power of going within. Meditation is the first step to putting the little “ego-mind” in time-out, and helps us get in touch with aspects of ourselves that are more connected with other beings, and connected with the universe at large. That’s the best way to manifest the loftiest world of the dreams of our higher soul. The Life Review: a common feature of reported Near-Death Experiences where boundaries of self disappear and your life is presented to you from the emotional perspective of those around you (reinforcing the Golden Rule) Past-life accounts from children have been validated through historical research This material world is where our souls actually make progress, not the in-between spiritual realm Reincarnation was very accepted in the early days of Christianity, but the concept was written out by Constantine at the Council of Nicaea Several examples of people having NDEs and making miraculous full recoveries from deadly traumas and illnesses Darwinian concepts of evolution through competition (ideas that bled into our social and economic systems) versus evolution via collaboration and cooperation Meditation as a technique to get in touch with our higher souls, as well as a scientifically proven tool to lower stress and blood pressure, improve sleep and productivity, enhance the immune system, generate inner peace and assist with interpersonal conflict Pierre Teilhard de Chardin’s vision—echoed by those from the NDE world and the meditating community— of the evolution of all consciousness toward a higher level of oneness and connectedness and love, a utopian world for all of life on Earth—shifting the focus from the “ego-mind” toward the universal higher good It’s time to shift our identification away from individual nation-states and toward a global vision focused on the highest good of all beings; it’s time for us to wake up and care for each other and realize that a polarized society isn’t healthy and will sooner or later collapse under its own weight Resources http://ebenalexander.com/ Proof of Heaven: A Neurosurgeon's Journey into the Afterlife by Eben Alexander The Map of Heaven: How Science, Religion, and Ordinary People Are Proving the Afterlife by Eben Alexander Living in a Mindful Universe: A Neurosurgeon's Journey into the Heart of Consciousness by Eben Alexander and Karen Newell Seeking Heaven: Sound Journeys into the Beyond Audio CD by Eben Alexander and Karen Newell of Sacred Acoustics https://galileocommission.org/ The Untethered Soul: The Journey Beyond Yourself by Michael Singer https://www.sacredacoustics.com/ University of Virginia Division of Perceptual Studies Inner Sanctum Center (One Mind: United in Hope and Healing) Why Jesus Taught Reincarnation by Herbert Bruce Puryear Autobiography of a Yogi by Paramahansa Yogananda Dying To Be Me: My Journey from Cancer, to Near Death, to True Healing by Anita Moorjani My Stroke of Insight: A Brain Scientist's Personal Journey by Jill Bolte Taylor The Phenomenon of Man by Pierre Teilhard de Chardin The Science of Near-Death Experiences by John C.

After decades as a physician and teacher at Harvard Medical School and elsewhere, renowned academic neurosurgeon Dr. Eben Alexander thought he knew how the brain, mind, and consciousness worked. A transcendental Near-Death Experience (NDE) during a week-long coma from an inexplicable brain infection changed all of that – completely. Memories of his life had been completely deleted, yet he awoke with memories of a fantastic odyssey deep into another realm – more real than this earthly one! Since his 2008 NDE he has been reconciling his rich spiritual experience with contemporary physics and cosmology. We are conscious in spite of our brain. By probing deeply into our own consciousness, we transcend the limits of the human brain, and of the physical-material realm. His story offers a crucial key to the understanding of reality and human consciousness. A pioneering scientist and thought leader in consciousness studies, Dr. Alexander has been a guest on Dr. Oz, Oprah, and many other media programs. His most recent book, Living in a Mindful Universe: A Neurosurgeon’s Journey into the Heart of Consciousness, (co-authored with Karen Newell) has garnered accolades from many scientists around the world who study the mind-body question and the nature of consciousness. His earlier books, Proof of Heaven: A Neurosurgeon's Journey into the Afterlife and The Map of Heaven: How Science, Religion, and Ordinary People Are Proving the Afterlife, have collectively spent more than two years atop the New York Times and international bestseller lists. www.ebenalexander.com
Academic neurosurgeon Dr. Eben Alexander III has had a great impact on the world's appreciation of NDEs. A physician who served as an associate professor at Harvard Medical School, Dr. Alexander was once staunchly committed to the materialist belief that the physical world is all that exists. That view was forever altered by his amazing near-death experience in 2008, when a bacterial infection severely damaged his brain and plunged him into a week-long coma. Though not expected to live, Dr. Alexander awoke to make an inexplicable return to full health. Since his NDE, Dr. Alexander has been reconciling his rich spiritual experience with quantum physics, cosmology, the philosophy of mind, and the proposition that consciousness is primordial and the physical brain its filter. His most recent book, Living in a Mindful Universe: A Neurosurgeon's Journey into the Heart of Consciousness, co-authored with Karen Newell, explores the nature of consciousness. www.ebenalexander.com.
