Town Hall South: Dr. Eben Alexander
October 6, 2015 at 10:10 AM - 11:10 AMMEMBERSHIP ONLY
Dr. Eben Alexander III, an academic neurosurgeon for over 25 years, thought he had a good idea of how the brain generates consciousness, mind, and spirit. But driven into coma by a rare bacterial meningitis-encephalitis, he spent a week in a coma with diminishing prospects for survival. His experience revealed that we are conscious in spite of our brain—in fact, consciousness is at the root of all existence.
Blessed with a complete recovery, Dr. Alexander shares his most powerful life-changing story in his book, Proof of Heaven: A Neurosurgeon’s Journey into the Afterlife. Through his nonprofit organization, Eternea, Dr. Alexander dedicates himself to encouraging people to be inspired by the power of unconditional love. His latest book is The Map of Heaven: How Science, Religion, and Ordinary People Are Proving the Afterlife.
