Eben Alexander, III, M.D. and Karen Newell: Death is Not The End: A One Day Webinar on the Mystery of Life

Dying is an inescapable part of being on the human journey. As near-death experiences and other evidence reveals, while it may be the end of our physical existence, death is a transition and part of a much larger journey, offering a powerful opportunity in the process of soul growth. The interconnectedness we feel in the physical world is a reflection of the oneness we share through consciousness. There is a consilience in the scientific and philosophical communities studying consciousness that implies a unity of mind pervading the entire universe. Consciousness underlies all of existence, and the nonphysical realm can no longer be dismissed. This spiritual force, the binding force of love, is all around us and offers a constant source of support, even when we’re socially isolated, or when a loved one dies– if we know how to utilize it. 

Drawing on the essential lessons from his NDE, Dr. Eben Alexander, NY Times #1 best-selling author of Proof of Heaven, will explain that our souls are eternal and our relationships with others extend beyond the grave. Unconditional love provides healing and comfort for self and others, and incredible hope during times of grief and the inevitability of death. Karen Newell, cofounder of Sacred Acoustics, will discuss how we can integrate our limiting beliefs and emotions around death and loss, with a renewed sense of shared meaning and purpose in this lifetime. By cultivating a relationship with our inner world, it becomes clear how finding inner peace provides a larger perspective of our interconnected soul journeys. Using advanced tools for brainwave entrainment meditation, you will personally explore how to move away from the linguistic brain to access profound insights from within, and ultimately from the universe. Throughout the workshop, there will be ample time to process, ask questions and discuss the concepts presented and how to integrate the insights from meditation into everyday living.
