In our conversation with Dr. Eben Alexander, we talk about his detailed story of his own Near Death Experience (NDE). Among other things, his NDE opened a specific understanding about his adoption and his biological family. A neurosurgeon by profession, Dr. Alexander wrote about his NDE in a New York Times bestseller The Proof of Heaven, compelling readers to embrace a new understanding of death. He went on then to expand his account of NDEs in Living in a Mindful Universe. Because Dr. Alexander’s brain scans and medical data were well validated, he was able to establish, beyond a doubt, that his consciousness was not dependent on his brain. Dr. Alexander speaks from his individual experience in a passionate and clear way, but he also speaks as a scientist who has tested the hypothesis of consciousness after death.
