#1344 The Neurosurgeon Who Went To Heaven - Dr. Eben Alexander

This episode will probably ruffle a few feathers, challenge a few beliefs, inspire a few people, confuse a few people, give hope to some, and maybe arouse some curiosity. For those of us with pre-existing thoughts, beliefs and ideas (you and me), it can be difficult to consider information, concepts and stories which don't fit in to our model of the world and how we think things work. Nonetheless, I did my best to open my mind, overcome my programming and conditioned thinking, be fully present and to respectfully and curiously consider what Dr. Eben Alexander had to share. He definitely challenged some of my thinking but to be honest, much of what he had to share resonated strongly with me. I enjoyed this chat and it left me with much to ponder. *Bio: Academic neurosurgeon Dr. Eben Alexander III, whose career includes decades as a physician and associate professor at Harvard Medical School and revered teaching hospitals, was once staunchly committed to the materialist world view - the belief that the physical world is all that exists. His scientific belief system was altered by his 2008 transcendental near-death experience (NDE), an odyssey into another realm during a week-long coma. 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.
