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. In 2008, Dr. Eben Alexander suffered a bacterial infection that put him a week–long coma in which his brain should have been severely damaged. His story of recovery from the near-death experience (NDE) was featured in his first book, Proof of Heaven: A Neurosurgeon’s Journey into the Afterlife (2012), which debuted at #1 and spent a year on the New York Times Bestseller list. Since the book was released, he has been interviewed over 400 times including appearances on The Dr. Oz Show, Super Soul Sunday with Oprah Winfrey, ABC-TV’s 20-20, Good Morning America, and FOX-TV’s FOX & Friends. His story was also featured on the Discovery Channel and the Biography Channel. In 2014, he released his second book, The Map of Heaven: How Science, Religion and Ordinary People are Proving the Afterlife. In 2017, his 3rd book was released on the subject of consciousness and reality, Living in a Mindful Universe: A Neurosurgeon’s Journey into the Heart of Consciousness, co-authored with Karen Newell. Karen Newell is an author, specialist in personal development and an innovator in the emerging field of brainwave and audio meditation. She empowers others in their journeys of self discovery by demonstrating how to connect to inner guidance, achieve inspiration, improve wellness and achieve intuition. She is the co-creator of Sacred Acoustics which develops and distributes innovative NeuralHelix brainwave entrainment audio recordings with binaural beats for meditation and personal growth. In addition to Dr. Alexander’s work to share his insights from his NDE and what they teach about consciousness, he and Karen now regularly lead workshops and teach others ways to tap into our greater mind and the power of the heart to facilitate enhancement of healing, relationships, creativity, guidance, and more.
