Karen Newell & Eben Alexander
As an innovator in the emerging field of brainwave entrainment audio meditation, Karen Newell empowers others in their journeys of self-discovery. Using Sacred Acoustics recordings, she teaches how to enter and engage your own consciousness in order to connect to inner guidance, achieve inspiration, improve wellness and develop intuition.

Karen is co-author with Dr. Eben Alexander of Living in a Mindful Universe.

Eben Alexander III is an American neurosurgeon and the author of the book Proof of Heaven: A Neurosurgeon’s Journey into the Afterlife,

In Proof of Heaven, Dr Alexander describes his 2008 near-death experience and asserts that science can and will determine that the brain does not create consciousness and that consciousness survives bodily death.

Alexander has taught and had appointments at Duke University Medical Center, Harvard Medical School, University of Massachusetts Medical School, and the University of Virginia Medical School, Boston Children’s Hospital, Dana–Farber Cancer Institute, He is certified by the American Board of Neurological Surgery.

Living in a Mindful Universe relates the emerging view of consciousness that is revolutionizing the scientific community, and is, in many ways, the continuation of Dr. Alexander’s journey since writing Proof of Heaven. This journey parallels an unprecedented shift in the western scientific paradigm that, when fully incorporated, will lead to far more meaning and purpose in our lives.

Beginning with greater influence on our health, our connection with the universe will lead to enhanced insight and creativity and our ability to influence the evolution of reality, clearing a pathway towards harmony and peace in our lives and in the world-at-large. Using Sacred Acoustics recordings and other methods, we can discover an inner stillness deep enough to connect with our divine spiritual nature. With Living in a Mindful Universe, we show readers how to achieve this same access to the Collective Mind.
