Eben Alexander, MD

Dr. Eben Alexander
Eben Alexander, MD, was an academic neurosurgeon for more than 25 years, including 15 years at the Brigham & Women’s Hospital, Children’s Hospital, and Harvard Medical School in Boston.

He thought he knew how the brain, mind and consciousness worked, but after a near-death experience during a week long coma, he discovered that there was more to life than he’d thought. Dr. Alexander went on to reconcile his spiritual experience with contemporary physics and cosmology, and now shares his theory and practice around the world and in the media—including shows such as Oprah and Dr. Oz, and in his own best-selling books Proof of Heaven, The Map of Heaven, and Living in a Mindful Universe.
