The International Association for Near-Death Studies presents NDE RADIO, a weekly exploration of near-death experiences and similar encounters with the other side, hosted by Lee Witting.
Dr. Eben Alexander-Dr. Eben Alexander
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.

Research partner Karen Newell joins Dr. Alexander in this segment, as they discuss the book on consciousness, Living in a Mindful Universe, which they authored together. Karen Newell is also a personal development expert, and a co-founder of Sacred Acoustics (which well discuss in Part Three). Her personal growth writings, workshops, guided meditations and teachings enable individuals to achieve life transformations towards greater self-fulfillment and contentment, quality relationships and career choices aligned with ones soul calling. Karen is an innovator in the emerging field of brainwave entrainment audio meditation. Using Sacred Acoustics recordings, she teaches how to enter and engage ones own consciousness to connect to inner guidance, achieve inspiration, improve wellness, and develop intuition.
