Living in a Mindful Universe is a compelling introduction to a vitally important and rapidly unfolding paradigm shift in science, providing a far more comprehensive worldview where consciousness is the fundamental "glue" that defines reality itself — Dean Radin, PhD, Chief Scientist at the Institute of Noetic Sciences, Distinguished Professor at the California Institute of Integral Studies, and author of Entangled Minds and Supernormal
This elegant book not only shatters conventional boundaries that traditionally separated science from spirituality, but also provides crucial insights on how to apply this understanding to our lives, which is so essential in the fearful world we seem to be living in today — Anita Moorjani, New York Times bestselling author of Dying To Be Me
This book is both a personal journal of Eben and Karen's spiritual quest and a practical manual for the care, education and nourishment of the soul. Their brilliant, in-depth thinking and analysis shed exciting new light on near-death experiences and other phenomena of the spiritual life — Raymond Moody, MD, PhD, author of Life After Life and Glimpses of Eternity
Eben Alexander and Karen Newell skillfully and beautifully drive home a timely and important message: You are not just part of a self-aware and ever evolving universe, you are the one that gives it awareness and is evolving it! The future of our world is directly in our hands through the choices we make — Rudolph E. Tanzi, PhD, Professor of Neurology, Harvard Medical School and New York Times bestselling author of Super Brain and Super Genes
Dr. Eben Alexander couldn't ignore something that science cannot (currently) explain - namely, a detailed near-death experience when his brain was clinically incapacitated. Highly recommended for anyone looking to harness the power of the human mind! — Kelly Turner, PhD, New York Times bestselling author of Radical Remission
Eben, a man of science, delves into the Spiritual Oneness. He realizes that there are many paths up the mountain and they end up in the same place. As a result of understandings that Eben encountered during his coma, he succinctly conveys familiarity with many planes of consciousness, and the way he demonstrates this awareness is fascinating — Ram Dass, author of Be Here Now
Numerous books have been written about consciousness, mind, soul, and love, but nobody has put them together in such an ingenious way as Dr. Eben Alexander. His book Living in a Mindful Universe will bring its readers a road map for life that is desperately needed in these times of stress, conflict, and confusion. It not only deals with life after death but how to live a more meaningful existence right here and right now — Stanley Krippner, PhD, Professor of Psychology, Saybrook University, co-author of Personal Mythology
A very important book, with rich stories illustrating a world beyond the limits of materialistic science and one neurosurgeon's quest to rethink everything he has learned. Dr. Alexander's humbleness, along with the wise counsel of Karen Newell, is a roadmap for those wishing to bridge science and spirit and enter into a life of wonder and magic. And, it's a great read! — William Arntz, Creator of What the BLEEP Do We Know!?
Dr. Eben Alexander's case history is one of the most important in the history of medicine. The fact that he physically survives his illness is astonishing, but his account of a journey during his coma to a resplendent domain that operates according to the principle of boundless love is even more surprising. Alexander's experience shows that the dismal, vacuous view of materialism, which guarantees total annihilation of consciousness with physical death, is almost certainly wrong. Newell's contributions are a valuable addition, making possible a practical blueprint by which one can realize transcendent insights and spiritual growth without experiencing the dangerous trauma of Alexander's journey. Their collaboration makes Living in a Mindful Universe vital reading as we struggle to recover direction, purpose, and meaning in modern life — Larry Dossey, MD, author of One Mind, and Executive Editor of Explore: The Journal of Science and Healing
Living in a Mindful Universe goes beyond Dr. Alexander's previous books in showing how science and spirituality are coming together to give us a more complete understanding of consciousness, meaning, and purpose in the universe -- and in describing how we can realize our role in it — Bruce Greyson, MD, Carlson Professor Emeritus of Psychiatry & Neurobehavioral Sciences, Division of Perceptual Studies, University of Virginia, co-editor of The Handbook of Near-Death Experiences
In this third book based upon his extraordinary experiences during a coma induced by bacterial meningitis, Eben Alexander provides new information about the coma and its aftermath, connects his experiences with world-wide and world-old mystical traditions, and links experiences of this sort with modern developments in physics. He then goes on with his partner Karen Newell to survey a variety of practices and technologies that may enable others to access these expanded states of consciousness and the normally latent human potentials associated with them. Many other such possibilities undoubtedly remain to be discovered, and time will tell which of the lot work best, and for whom. An exciting new journey of scientific self-discovery is certainly underway — Edward F. Kelly, PhD, Professor in the Division of Perceptual Studies, Department of Psychiatry and Neurobehavioral Sciences, University of Virginia, and lead author of Irreducible Mind and Beyond Physicalism
In this impressive book, Eben Alexander gives us a frank and very personal account of the life-changing transformation following his deep-coma experience. He shares with us his complete flip away from scientific materialism, and his newly obtained insight in the mystery of the Collective Mind. He explains the importance to make contact with this high-ordered consciousness by practising conscious awareness on a more daily basis. Our picture of the world will change fundamentally by the insight that it is all about consciousness. This clearly written book will bring deeper understanding of the nature of the human spirit, and gives us all a greater knowledge about the nature of reality. Highly recommended — Pim van Lommel, MD, cardiologist, author of Consciousness Beyond Life
In Living in a Mindful Universe, Eben Alexander and Karen Newell explore the worlds of both science and spirit. They offer clear explanations of findings that challenge the Supreme Illusion of everyday physical reality, along with frank accounts of their own efforts to connect more with the Collective Mind. The result is a work filled with wisdom and compassion — Jim B. Tucker, MD, New York Times bestselling author of Return to Life
Having previously accepted the philosophy of 'scientific materialism' as the ultimate truth, Dr. Alexander found that his life-transforming near-death experience during coma had shattered all of his former beliefs about the nature of consciousness, the roles of the mind and brain, and the meaning of life and death. His emergent understanding, which parallels much of the awakening in the modern scientific community, is presented in Living in a Mindful Universe, which illuminates the many steps he took to expand his understanding of a much larger, richer, and deeper cosmos — Bill Guggenheim, co-author of Hello From Heaven!

Unique among Jean Klein's works, the dialogues contained in this book have been organised by subject. Topics include: Relationship; The Nature of Thinking; The Art of Listening; A conversation on Art, etc.Questioner: "In certain situations in life I feel blocked by a fear which prevents me from acting. How can I be free from this obstacle?"Jean Klein: "First free yourself from the word, the concept, "fear." It is loaded with memory. Face only the perception. Accept the sensation completely. When the personality who judges and controls is completely absent, when there is no longera psychological relationship with the sensation, it is really welcomed and unfolds. Only in welcoming without a welcomer can ther be real transformation."We are in essence one with all existence; when we truly observe ourselves there is ultimately no observer, only observation--awareness."

Eben Alexander, Ptolemy Tompkins

When Dr Eben Alexander wrote about his own startling near-death experience in Proof of Heaven, he was contacted by countless people from all walks of life. His story had touched them personally and they in turn had their own miraculous experiences of the afterlife to share with Eben. In The Map of Heaven, Eben recounts the astonishing stories he has heard on his travels, from near-death experiences and encounters with angelic beings to inspiring messages from departed loved ones. Each account helps us to understand just how vast the universe really is. Drawing on these accounts and lessons from religious leaders, philosophers and scientific investigations into the role of consciousness, Eben explores our true place in the universe and what exactly exists beyond death.
