  • Living in a Mindful Universe: A Conversation with Dr. Eben Alexander, author of Proof of Heaven


    In 2008, Dr. Eben Alexanders brain was severely damaged by a devastating case of bacterial meningitis, and he lapsed into a week-long coma. It was almost certainly a death sentence, but Dr. Alexander miraculously survived and brought back with him an astounding story (told in his best-seller Proof of Heaven: A Neurosurgeon's Journey into the Afterlife). During seven days in coma, he was plunged into the deepest realms of consciousness, and came to understand profound truths about the universe we inhabit. What he learned completely violated everything he ever knew about brain, mind and consciousness, and drove him to question some of the most fundamental assumptions of conventional science, leading to a complete flip from his former worldview. The entire scientific community is facing a similar conundrum: how to explain that consciousness is merely a byproduct of the brain when overwhelming evidence suggests otherwise. Ultimately, direct experience is key to fully understanding how we are all connected thro
