This week’s theme: Consciousness
Everyone has an idea what consciousness is, but it is difficult to fully comprehend it. Our guest expert Dr. Eben Alexander will help us unravel the enigma of consciousness by sharing his true-life story of a near-death experience. An experience so profound it shifted his entire idea of science and the meaning of life. His account contributes significantly to our understanding of our connection and responsibility in the world through consciousness. It will have a major impact on how we think about spirituality, the soul, and non-material existence.

Dr. Eben Alexander
Dr. Eben Alexander III, an academic neurosurgeon with decades of experience as a physician and associate professor at Harvard Medical School and prestigious teaching hospitals, was previously a firm believer in the materialist worldview, which holds that the physical world is all that exists. During a week-long coma in 2008, he had a transcendental near-death experience (NDE), an excursion into another realm that changed his scientific beliefs.
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.
