Alexander’s story offers a crucial key to the understanding of reality and human consciousness.This story would be remarkable no matter who it happened to. That it happened to Dr. Eben makes it revolutionary. No scientist or person of faith will be able to ignore it. His book and presentation will change the lives of audiences. It will have a major effect on how we view spirituality, the soul, and the non-material realm. In analyzing his experience, including the scientific possibilities and grand implications, he envisions a more complete reconciliation of modern science and spirituality as a natural product.


About Dr. Eben Alexander

  • Dr. Eben Alexander is a neurosurgeon with over 25 years of experience who had little interest in the metaphysical—until his own near death experience, in which he journeyed to the afterlife, changed everything.
  • Now a man of both science and spirituality, Dr. Alexander makes a powerful case for true health being achievable only through the acceptance that God and the soul are real and that death is not the end, but rather a transition.
  • Alexander’s experiences reconcile faith with modern medicine—offering a point of view that will provoke and inspire all who hear it.

Dr. Eben Alexander III has been an academic neurosurgeon for the last 25 years. Over his academic career, he authored over 150 chapters and papers in peer reviewed journals, and made over 200 presentations at conferences and medical centers around the world. He thought he had a very good idea of how the brain generates consciousness, mind and spirit.

One day in November 2008, Alexander was driven into coma by a rare and mysterious bacterial meningitis-encephalitis. He spent a week in coma on a ventilator, his prospects for survival diminishing rapidly. On the seventh day, to the surprise of everyone, he started to awaken, with memories of a fantastic odyssey deep into another realm! His older son advised him to write down everything he could remember about his journey, which would serve as the basis for his best-selling book, Proof of Heaven: A Neurosurgeon’s Journey into the Afterlife, about this most powerful, life-changing story.

Alexander’s recovery is by all accounts a medical miracle. Today he is a doctor who believes that true health can be achieved only when we realize that God and the soul are real and that death is not the end of personal existence but only a transition.
