Guest Speaker Series - Eben Alexander III, M.D. * Note Location Chg: Jewish CC

Eben Alexander III, M.D., a renowned Harvard neurosurgeon and now New York Times bestselling author, spent 54 years honing his scientific worldview. He thought he knew how the brain and mind worked. A transcendental Near-Death Experience (NDE), in which he was driven to the brink of death and spent a week deep in coma from an inexplicable brain infection, changed all of that!

He was shocked to find the hyper-reality of that spiritual realm, which many had reported in NDEs. He has spent the last two and a half years reconciling his rich spiritual experience with contemporary physics and cosmology. His spiritual experience is totally consistent with the leading edges of scientific understanding today.

Together, science and spirituality will thrive in a symbiosis offering the most profound insight into fundamental Truth, yielding unimaginable power. The keystone is in global progression of individual conscious awakening.

By probing deeply into our own consciousness, we transcend the limitations of the human brain, and of the physical-material realm. The spiritual realm is real. Seamless blending of science and spirituality will occur.

Author of Proof of Heaven, A Neurosurgeon's Journey into the Afterlife; (Books will be available for sale at the event).

Speaker at the 2011 & 2012 International Assn. for Near-Death Studies Conferences, plus many other major events which can be viewed at:

$5 Entry fee (no advance ticket sales). Doors open at 5:30pm.

Location: Tucson Jewish Community Center 3800 E. River Rd.

Note: Dr. Eben Alexander also appeared with Oprah on 12/2/12:

"In 2008, neurosurgeon Dr. Eben Alexander contracted a rare form of bacterial meningitis that shut down parts of his brain, put him in a coma and nearly killed him. During this time, he says, he saw heaven. He wrote about the experience in his bestselling book, Proof of Heaven. As he came out of the coma, Dr. Alexander didn't recognize anyone -- even his own son. And doctors didn't expect him to survive.

"The only [frightening], really truly terrifying moment of that whole journey and coma was seeing [my son's] face," he says. "And he was pleading with me… because he heard from [one of the doctors] that if they didn't see something in the next 12 hours, they should give up."

Dr. Alexander likens coming out of the coma to being in a "deep hole" and "trying to come up." Though he couldn't remember his son's face, he could sense a "deep connection of love" that made him realize he had to try to understand his circumstances. "It was so totally overpowering," says Dr. Alexander. "And it was like no matter what, I've got to figure this out.""

    He was awesome. The room set-up was the worst. We came to see hm and could not. It was impossible to read the bullets beause of the lighting. The room was freezing. Other wise it was a night to remember.

    Wow, I believe the room became one many times. Inside, we resonated with each confirmation gifted from Dr. Alexander's heart - outside, we began to hear that ditty he had heard from before! Thank you for providing a lifting area that we could gather and replenish!

    I am not feeling well :(. He's a great NDE case study, with the depth & extent of his experiences, his impeccable credentials, and medical proof. Heard Dr. Alexander speak last year in Scottsdale, and read his book. Excellent, not to be missed!
