Discover insights and practices (including powerful sound-healing journeys) to access the knowledge and transformations of the near-death experience — even if you haven’t had one yourself — so you can live a more love-filled, fearless, and purposeful life NOW.
Uncertainty is still swirling all around us.
Many of us feel uneasy, isolated, or worried about what the future holds.
And if you’re like a lot of us, you might be working through feeling a lack of fulfillment brought on by being confined for much of this year.
Now imagine how different life would be if you met these challenges — and every challenge — from a natural state of peace, comfort, and ease...
... a state that comes from knowing on a soul-deep level that all is well, that pure unity exists, that unconditional love serves as the binding force of the universe, and that you are truly never alone — even in death.
This is the life-changing perspective that those who’ve had a near-death experience (NDE) bring with them when they return. Maybe you’ve had an NDE of your own and have felt this for yourself...
Near-death experiencers have gone through a profound process — they’ve revisited crucial events from their lives for review; they’ve been comforted by departed loved ones and other helping spirits.
They no longer fear death because they know that when the time comes, they’ll be perfectly at home in the spiritual realm — and that everyone will be. They’ve already seen it for themselves.
Their spiritually transformative experiences reveal to them the power of love to provide profound healing.
This love permeates the entire universe and connects all of consciousness, ultimately energizing its evolution. The presence of evil is simply an absence of light and love, not an opposing force.
Even if you’ve never had an NDE, you can learn so much from those who have — and apply these profound truths to your life now.
Join us for a 7-week live video course with Dr. Eben Alexander, a bestselling author, neurosurgeon, teacher of consciousness exploration — and near-death experiencer.
He brings the fascinating and validating expertise of his medical training and science background to his teachings about NDEs, offering a perspective that includes the scientific proof of what some in his field still consider an esoteric notion — that the brain doesn’t create consciousness, and our consciousness survives our death.
During this rare journey with Eben and his partner and co-teacher, sound-journey facilitator Karen Newell, you’ll explore the full, fascinating story of his NDE.
Eben and Karen will share insights and lead you through practices to cultivate the heightened awareness, deep love, and absence of the fear of death that can result from an NDE.
In every session, you’ll take part in profound guided sound-healing journeys using the anxiety-reducing resonance of Sacred Acoustics’ binaural beats.
Sacred Acoustics’ specialized brainwave entrainment audio recordings provide a profound sense of relaxation — to quiet your thinking/analytical mind, while you maintain a focused awareness.
A peer-reviewed pilot study published in the Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease in February 2020 revealed a 26% reduction in anxiety after just two weeks of listening.
Karen will personally guide you to generate some of the same profound features of near-death experiences — such as expanding awareness beyond the body, tapping into inner guidance, and experiencing a sense of unity with the universe... something we could all use right now.
If you’ve experienced an NDE, you can gain a scientific perspective that may further validate your own discoveries and answer lingering questions.
If you haven’t experienced an NDE, you’ll come away with an expanded and comforting view of death — and a richer awareness of how to live a fulfilling life of purpose here on Earth and beyond.
You’ll discover how to successfully manage your thoughts, beliefs, and underlying motivations — and create a foundation to more consciously understand the outcomes in your life.
As Eben learned firsthand, the gift of almost dying is learning how to truly live — join us as he shares these powerful lessons with you.
During this eye-opening journey with Eben and Karen, you’ll discover:
- How NDEs, deathbed visions, shared death experiences, and spiritually transformative experiences all reveal that pure, unconditional love serves as the binding force of the universe
- Evidence from many cases that we are not alone when we die
- How near-death experiences bring about profound transformations — unmatched by any therapeutic techniques — including physical and mental healing, shifts in worldview, and an enhanced sense of meaning and purpose
- How to measure mystical features of near-death experiences (and other spiritually transformative experiences) using the Greyson Scale
- How successfully managing your thoughts, beliefs, and underlying motivations creates a foundation for consciously understanding the outcomes in your life
- A more complete understanding of “where we go” when we hover between the worlds
- How, in the process of studying the realms of consciousness, scientific study uncovered evidence of a common spiritual realm
- How key experiences from childhood often set the stage for a unique reflection of separation from source — which is far more challenging to resolve due to the spiritual vacuum inherent in modern, secular culture
- Conclusions from 6 decades of academic research that provide evidence of reincarnation, focused on 2,500+ cases of past-life memories in chidlren
- What you can learn from near-death experiencers’ life reviews — visions where they feel for themselves how others have been affected by their actions
- The powerful evidence — regarding telepathy, remote viewing, precognition, and more — that supports the concept that we’re all connected through our collective consciousness, the One Mind
- How an NDE opens us to the awareness that our consciousness creates our life — and that we have a critical role to play while we’re here
What You’ll Discover in These 7 Weeks
In this 7-week transformational intensive, Eben and Karen will guide you through the fundamental body-mind-spirit skills and competencies you’ll need to access the knowledge and transformations of the NDE experiencer — even if you haven’t had one yourself — so you can live a more love-filled, fearless, and fulfilling life NOW.
Sound-Healing Journeys to Access NDE Transformations Here on Earth
Throughout this 7-week soul-evolving course, you’ll receive guided Sacred Acoustics recordings with Karen Newell, Eben’s partner and a spiritual journey facilitator.
Using specialized brainwave entrainment audio recordings, Karen will lead you through guided practices to attain a state of “no time” and identify the neutral observer within you... to expand your awareness beyond the physical realm... to consciously generate feelings of joy, harmony with the universe, and soul connection... and much more.
The Power of Live Streaming Video
You’ll connect with Eben and Karen and experience their teachings through live streaming video. This connection is easy to use and will enhance the impact of their powerful teachings. Or you can easily connect just via audio if you choose — through your phone, tablet, laptop, or desktop.
(Can’t make it live? No worries! After each class, the video and audio recordings will be available for you to download or stream in high-quality format at your convenience.)
Course Sessions Mondays at 11:00am Pacific.
This course will feature LIVE teachings, interactive training sessions, and experiential practices with Eben and Karen. Each session will build harmoniously upon the previous ones, so you’ll develop a complete holistic understanding of the practices, tools, and principles you’ll need to experience a soul-evolving journey to live a more love-filled, fearless, and purposeful life NOW.
Module 1: Consciousness Is Fundamental in the Universe (August 17)
Near-death experiences bring about profound transformations — unmatched by any therapeutic techniques — including physical and mental healing, shifts in worldview, and an enhanced sense of meaning and purpose.
In this opening week, you’ll discover how you can achieve this same metamorphosis — when you cultivate a direct, personal experience within your own consciousness.
Consciousness is your very awareness, and it reveals your fundamental nature as an observer. It’s the part of you that plays a role in influencing the reality that’s unfolding around you.
And consciousness underlies all of existence, including the spiritual realm that each of us can experience.
In this first module, you’ll discover:
- How Eben’s spiritual journey — and the case study of his medical records — provides a crucial key to the scientific understanding of reality and human consciousness
- How the brain serves as a filter — it limits your consciousness to the apparent “here and now” so you can survive in the earthly realm
- The elements that all near-death experiences have in common across all belief systems throughout the world, over millennia
- How to measure mystical features of near-death experiences (and other spiritually transformative experiences) using the Greyson Scale
- The ways each of us can explore similar realms of consciousness
- A guided practice to attain a state of “no time” and maintain a sense of pure awareness using a Sacred Acoustics audio recording
Module 2: As Within, So Without (August 24)
— René Descartes, 1596-1650
Did you know that your entire human experience has been taking place within your inner world?
This week, you’ll explore how there is no objective physical universe independent of your mind — even though your perceptions themselves are very real...
And because these perceptions are completely contained within the realm of your mind, exploring your inner world — and influencing it with your will — ultimately IS influencing the “outer world” as you perceive it.
During Eben’s NDE, he had no memory of the words, language, and personal memories of his life. His awareness was an empty slate...
With no beliefs, no fears, no assumptions, no prejudice, no expectations, no memory of prior experience, he could simply exist as pure awareness — and as you’ll discover, you can bring elements of this phenomenon into your own life, now.
Successfully managing your thoughts, beliefs, and underlying motivations creates a foundation to more consciously understand the outcomes in your life.
In this session, you’ll:
- Explore why your running stream of thoughts isn’t very reliable for defining truths about the world — because your ego-mind is fraught with errors, misinterpretations, and unproven assumptions, leading to beliefs that only seem like facts
- Discover that major events in your physical world originate in the mental, or spiritual, realm
- Examine what quantum physics reveals about the role of the top-down ordering principles that govern the quantum universe
- Recognize how the placebo effect is the gold standard in modern medical research because it reveals the power of mind over matter
- Explore how the linguistic brain and language actually limit and distort your understanding — and discover ways to get past this
- Learn to expand your awareness beyond your body and identify the neutral observer within, using a Sacred Acoustics audio recording
Module 3: Exploring Non-Ordinary Realms of Consciousness (August 31)
— Cicero, 2nd century Roman philosopher
Emotions are a fundamental aspect of our lives as human beings. They give us “skin in the game” as we go through our lives.
Emotional engagement energizes our interactions with others and brings a level of significance to events and outcomes we experience. Like thoughts, emotions originate in the mental realm — we are not driven merely by hormones and neurotransmitter molecules interacting in the brain.
You’ll also explore how studying realms of consciousness includes analyzing the unconscious, dream states, dreamless sleep, mental illness, meditative epiphanies — and psychedelic experiences using substances such as psilocybin, DMT, and LSD, among others.
As scientists have studied this broad body of experience, it suggests the reality of a common spiritual realm — and Eben and Karen will walk you through their findings.
Eben will also share how, within the murkiness of his NDE came a slowly spinning, pure white light, surrounded by fine golden and silvery tendrils, accompanied by a perfect musical melody.
As he made the choice to follow it, the light opened into a dynamic portal, leading into a far more crisp, vibrant, detailed, and alive ultra-real realm — dripping with emotional engagement where joy was a natural ambiance...
... and you’ll discover how to bring these elements into your own waking life.
This week, you’ll explore:
- Why the most extraordinary experiences arise with inactivation of brain activity — while people are under the influence of psychedelic substances
- Critical differences between psychotic episodes and transcendental experiences
- How sound was the engine for Eben’s traversal of multiple spiritual realms
- How binaural beats affect the lower brain stem and enhance liberation of consciousness
- Animal consciousness, and how animals’ lack of linguistic ability helps their capacity for expressing love to expand
- A practice to consciously generate feelings of gratitude and joy using a Sacred Acoustics audio recording
Module 4: Our Soul Journey Is Never Alone (September 14)
As scientists have long suggested, there’s a layer of information, or quantum hologram, underlying our physical reality.
Albert Einstein believed the most important question for all of humanity to answer was: Is this underlying force indifferent or benevolent?
This week, you’ll explore how this mental plane holds the evolving memory of all events in the universe — and is often revealed to us through life’s synchronicities.
You’ll discover how the other side is ever-present and available to you.
During his NDE, Eben received a message from his guardian angel: “You are deeply loved and cherished forever. You will be taken care of. There is nothing to fear.”
He felt a soft summer breeze, the divine wind, which he later called the “breath of God,” revealing a sense of awareness that was rooted in that “God” force, or Source.
Leaving that source seems to cause a universal abandonment wound in each of us, contributing to an illusion of separation in the physical realm. And this challenge we all face actually provides ample opportunities for transformation and personal growth.
In this session, you’ll:
- Appreciate the intimate connection between conscious awareness and the “God” force or Source
- Explore the concept of the information field that underlies all potentiality, also known as the quantum hologram or akashic field
- Examine the emerging evidence that memories are not stored in the physical brain
- Discover how key experiences from childhood often set the stage for a unique reflection of separation from source — creating a spiritual vacuum inherent in modern, secular culture
- Understand how this illusion of separation serves as a catalyst to search for meaning and purpose
- Tap into guidance from an inner presence, using a Sacred Acoustics audio recording
Module 5: The Golden Rule Written Into the Fabric of the Universe (September 21)
The life review — where key residual lessons are re-experienced in an ultra-real realm — is encountered in 25–50% of all NDEs.
NDE experiencers report rich emotional engagement in the life review, as they witness and literally feel events from the perspective of those affected by their choices and actions through a process of knowledge through identification.
Scientific research of past-life memories in children confirms that reincarnation is a natural part of our existence.
In the deepest realms of Eben’s journey, he witnessed the process of life reviews and reincarnation through various visions.
This week, you’ll discover how you can gain a broader perspective of what others have felt due to your actions and thoughts. Understanding the processes of life reviews and reincarnation can bring broader meaning and purpose to your soul journey.
You’ll explore how consciousness is a continuum that extends beyond any one physical lifetime — and experience soul lessons to help you make potential course corrections for your next incarnation.
This week, you’ll:
- Explore conclusions from 6 decades of research that provide evidence of reincarnation, focused on 2,500+ cases of past-life memories in children
- Understand how the life review process reveals that the Golden Rule is written into the fabric of the universe
- Discover how the life review reveals that relationships with others are crucial to the evolving course of our lives
- Gain a broader understanding of how your choices in life affect events and outcomes
- Revisit your own past events and expand your perspective, using a Sacred Acoustics audio recording
Module 6: Unconditional Love Has Infinite Power to Heal (September 28)
The increase of suicide and mental health crises in our society points to a spiritual vacuum in our modern materialistic, secular, and me-focused world.
In this pivotal module, you’ll explore how NDEs reveal that the fundamental ground state of our being is one in which we’re surrounded by unconditional love.
This infinitely healing force of love offers an abundance of comfort — and empowers those who experience it to never fear the process of death again.
Countless souls have had spiritually transformative experiences that reveal the power of this love to provide profound healing.
Love pervades the entire universe and connects all of consciousness, ultimately energizing its evolution. The presence of evil is simply an absence of light and love, not an opposing force.
The dark cloud of hardships, like illness or injury, loss of a job, broken relationships, and addictions, are actually engines for soul growth — and your higher soul has planned the lessons you came here to learn, in order to evolve.
It is your choice in how to respond...
This week, you’ll:
- Explore why it’s not possible to fill spiritual holes with material matter — instead, true healing requires a spiritual integration of the soul
- Discover how your emotional triggers and patterns serve as clues to key life lessons your higher soul has planned for you
- Learn how NDEs, deathbed visions, shared death experiences, and spiritually transformative experiences all reveal that pure, unconditional love serves as the binding force of the universe
- Examine different attitudes concerning prayer — petitional vs. trusting
- Cultivate love of self and embody inner peace using a Sacred Acoustics audio recording
Module 7: We Are All One (October 5)
Spirituality is broadly defined as integrating a sense of connection to others and the universe with a sense of meaning and purpose — and it’s consistent with the lessons of NDEs over millennia.
We’re all connected through One Mind... it’s been validated through evidence in telepathy, precognition, intuition, interspecies communication, and more.
In this final week, you’ll explore how metaphysical idealism is a viable option — especially when compared to reductive materialism, where our collective consciousness is the driver of our unfolding reality.
In the deepest part of his coma journey, Eben witnessed the collapse of all higher dimensional space and time — infinite inky blackness, but also overflowing with the indescribably pure and infinitely healing love of Source.
That divine presence, or God-force, was represented by the universal Om vibration, the resonance of infinity and eternity. In this realm, Eben learned vast knowledge of oneness and its manifestations.
We can learn so much from Eben’s experience — including the powerful truth that, through the evolution of cosmic consciousness itself, each of us is deeply involved in a much grander vision for evolution.
True change in our world is possible if we truly know we’re all in this together.
In this closing module, you’ll:
- Examine what the scientific and philosophical communities have found while studying consciousness — and why it implies a unity of mind pervading the entire universe
- Study the evidence — telepathy, remote viewing, precognition, and more — supporting the concept that we’re all connected through our collective consciousness, the One Mind
- Realize how your personal journey contributes to the collective evolution of all consciousness
- Discover how to embody the Ultimate Golden Rule — that loving yourself serves to radiate the energy of love to the world around you, without having to say a word
- Expand your awareness to feel a sense of harmony and unity with the universe, using a Sacred Acoustics audio recording

Unraveling Consciousness at the Scientific Frontier
Video Dialogue With Eben Alexander and Neal Grossman
Eben Alexander and emeritus philosopher Neal Grossman enjoy a lively, informal discussion of their journey to discover the deeper nature of reality from a modern scientific and philosophical perspective. The range of topics includes free will vs. determinism, the mind-brain relationship, the soul, and the nature of the creative force of the universe.
Neal Grossman is an Associate Professor Emeritus in the Department of Philosophy at the University of Illinois at Chicago. His interests have been far-ranging, from the philosophy of science, especially quantum mechanics, to Spinoza, Plato, mysticism, parapsychology, survival of the soul after death, and the emerging new worldview arising from that research.
Spirituality & Mental Health Brainwave Entrainment
Video Teaching From Karen Newell
Karen Newell explains how binaural beats were first discovered and then developed beginning in the mid-20th century, initially to support out-of-body experiences. She describes how they induce lower brainwave states of delta, theta, and alpha, providing effects on cognition, stress, mood, PTSD, sleep, and anxiety. This is an excerpt from Spirituality & Mental Health, a 9-hour course taught with Eben Alexander and psychiatrist Anna Yusim.
Chapter 11 of Living in a Mindful Universe,
“Resolving a Key Question”
PDF Chapter From Ebook by Eben Alexander and Karen Newell
Eben Alexander shares the fascinating story of coming to recognize that his father’s soul was deeply involved in his NDE even though it was not apparent to him at the time of the experience. Using binaural beat audio technology, he reconnects with the soul of his father, leading to profound personal validation of the reality of his coma journey.

“This journey has awakened me to new thought process...”
This journey has awakened me to new thought processes, and opened up a possible reality that I have suspected as true since my youth.
“... feels like I keep stretching higher and higher to the Creator of All That Is.”
You are awesome teachers, providing us fascinating choices each day, guiding us into the meditations and stretching of our consciousness. I’m not certain this makes sense, but it feels like I keep stretching higher and higher to the Creator of All That Is. What a glorious feeling.
“... breathtaking in its truth...”
I’ve read Eben's books, but his physical presentation was even more impressive. It was breathtaking in its truth of the NDE.
“... the work that Eben and Karen are doing... is of huge importance for all of us...”
I would like to join with everyone else in thanking Eben and Karen so much for all their efforts in putting together this course. I have found it uplifting and enlightening on so many levels. Sometimes I’ve also found it quite challenging to my own beliefs and preconceptions, but that’s also a really positive thing. If we never challenge our individual and collective beliefs and viewpoints, how can we ever begin to change ourselves and the world around us? I do genuinely feel that the work that Eben and Karen are doing (and people like them) is of huge importance for all of us, and I wish them both every success, blessing, and happiness in their future spiritual journey together.
— Fred Carson
“Dr. Alexander is on a mission!”
A strong asset to the NDE community and the entire global community! Dr. Alexander is on a mission!
“Wonderful, concise overview of our expanding understanding of consciousness and the universe.”
I love the mix of hard science and spirituality. Wonderful, concise overview of our expanding understanding of consciousness and the universe.
“... amazing journey, which complements the book so well...”

— James Dalton
“We need more doctors, scientists like Dr. Eben.”
Absolutely outstanding. Very informative. We need more doctors, scientists like Dr. Eben.
“... there’s a release of energy — pent-up feelings in my body are released...”
I LOVE the meditations. I feel I have grown spiritually from doing them daily. Often when I meditate I go into another plane, and when I open my eyes at the end, tears pour down my cheeks, even though I have not been aware of their buildup while meditating. The meditations remind me of my yoga practice… and it feels as if there’s a release of energy — pent-up feelings in my body are released, just as in a yoga stretch when you go to the point of tension and then release.
— Amanda Holmes
“I can’t put into words the feelings of expanded love that I have felt after listening to the recordings…”
I’ve had the most wonderful experiences with your sound recordings. They not only relax me, but they also completely open my heart and put me in a blissful and ecstatic state. I can’t put into words the feelings of expanded love that I have felt after listening to the recordings. I have also written what came to my mind after each listening session and I am amazed today at what I have written. Thank you very much for this precious gift you have given me.
— Marcelle I.
“... allowed me to reach meditative states that come the closest to the Oneness I experienced during my NDE...”
Your creation of the Sacred Acoustics recordings is a tremendous gift to the world. They have allowed me to reach meditative states that come the closest to the Oneness I experienced during my NDE in 2001 during a catastrophic surgery complication followed by 28 days in an induced coma. I’ve been in search of that elusive state since then, and these recordings allow me to enter into the deepest states I’ve achieved to date.

— Larry Dossey, MD, Author of One Mind: How Our Individual Mind Is Part of a Greater Consciousness and Why It Matters
“Dr. Eben Alexander’s near-death experience... was somehow divinely ordained.”
Dr. Eben Alexander’s near-death experience is the most astounding one I have heard about in more than four decades of studying this phenomenon. In my opinion, Dr. Alexander is living proof of an afterlife. The extraordinary circumstances of his illness and his impeccable credentials make it very hard to formulate a mundane explanation for his case. For me, it is difficult to shake the feeling that his experience was somehow divinely ordained.

“... a roadmap for those wishing to bridge science and spirit and enter into a life of wonder and magic.”
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.
— William Arntz, Creator of What the BLEEP Do We Know!?
“[Dr. Alexander’s spiritual experience] may well change how we understand our role in the universe.”
Proof of Heaven is more than just an awe-inspiring account of a profound encounter with spiritual reality. Dr. Alexander’s neuroscience career taught him that near-death experiences are brain-based illusions, and yet his personal experience left him dumbstruck. His honest struggle to make sense of this unforgettable journey is a gripping story, unique in the literature of spiritual experiences, that may well change how we understand our role in the universe.
— Bruce Greyson, MD, Co-Editor of The Handbook of Near-Death Experiences: Thirty Years of Investigation

“... a scientist ready to challenge science.”
[Dr. Alexander] is a neurosurgeon, an established scientist, who lived through a bona fide miracle — one that challenges everything he ever knew, personally or professionally. His awareness of mission fits his profile, a scientist ready to challenge science. There have been others like him, but not with proof that can be independently verified to the degree that his can be. He recognizes the threshold where he now stands, and has chosen higher consciousness research to help fulfill his goals. A sense of destiny pervades his thinking, that somehow all of this was “planned.”
— P. M. H. Atwater, Author of Near-Death Experiences, The Rest of the Story: What They Teach Us About Living and Dying and Our True Purpose
“... compelling case that the future of our world and the future vision for our universe lies directly in our hands...”
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! You are your universe. [They] make the compelling case that the future of our world and the future vision for our universe lies directly in our hands and in the choices we make.
— Dr. Rudolph E. Tanzi, New York Times bestselling author of Super Brain and Super Genes
"... motivated to unify science with spirituality.”
If ‘Central Casting’ was given an assignment to locate the most highly qualified person, who has had a near-death experience (NDE), to have him write one or more books about it, lecture about it, and appear in the media to promote it around the world, no one could find a more perfect candidate than neurosurgeon Eben Alexander. He has all the necessary academic credentials for this assignment, is warm emotionally, very articulate, has undergone a profound spiritual transformation, and is highly motivated to unify science with spirituality.
— Bill Guggenheim, Co-author of Hello From Heaven!
“… combining a glorious, personal vision of spiritual consciousness with patient, insightful scientific inquiry.”
Eben Alexander brings a unique perspective to the sacred world combining a glorious, personal vision of spiritual consciousness with patient, insightful scientific inquiry. This is a compelling story of what may lie ahead for all of us in the life beyond this one. We have nothing to fear.
— Allan J. Hamilton, MD, FACS, Professor of Neurosurgery and author of The Scalpel and the Soul and Zen Horse, Zen Mind
About Dr. Eben Alexander
After decades as a physician and teacher at Harvard Medical School and elsewhere, renowned academic neurosurgeon Dr. Eben Alexander thought he knew how the brain, mind, and consciousness worked. A transcendental near-death experience (NDE) during a week-long coma from an inexplicable brain infection changed all of that. Memories of his life had been completely deleted, yet he awoke with memories of a fantastic odyssey deep into another realm — more real than this earthly one!
Since his 2008 NDE, he has been reconciling his rich spiritual experience with contemporary physics and cosmology, concluding that we are conscious in spite of our brain. By probing deeply into our own consciousness, we transcend the limits of the human brain, and of the physical-material realm. His story offers a crucial key to the understanding of reality and human consciousness.
A pioneering scientist and thought leader in consciousness studies, Dr. Alexander has been a guest on Dr. Oz, Oprah, and many other media programs. His most recent book, Living in a Mindful Universe: A Neurosurgeon’s Journey into the Heart of Consciousness (co-authored with Karen Newell), has garnered accolades from many scientists around the world who study the mind-body question and the nature of consciousness.

About Karen Newell
As an innovator in the emerging field of brainwave entrainment audio meditation, Karen Newell, co-founder of Sacred Acoustics, empowers others in their journeys of self-discovery. Using Sacred Acoustics recordings, she teaches how to connect to inner guidance, inspire creativity, improve wellness, develop intuition, and align with higher purpose.
In her search for answers to fundamental questions, it became clear that direct experience is crucial to full understanding. To bolster her strong sense of inner knowing and alignment with her higher nature, she enrolled in a series of hands-on experiential courses to investigate and develop such skills as lucid dreaming, astral travel, remote viewing, self-hypnosis, animal and plant communication, and several forms of energy healing.
She developed a facile expertise in living through daily connection with universal consciousness, using heart awareness as a central element. At international workshops presented with bestselling author Dr. Eben Alexander, Karen demonstrates key practices of consciousness exploration: heart awareness, intention, maintaining neutrality, emotional management, and cultivating internal knowing. She is co-author with Dr. Alexander of their latest book, Living in a Mindful Universe: A Neurosurgeon’s Journey Into the Heart of Consciousness.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What’s a virtual course?
A: It’s a great way to engage live and pre-recorded teachings and each other from the comfort of your home! All you need is a computer, mobile device, or telephone. If there’s more than one person in your household taking the course, you’ll each need your own connection. We use Zoom video conferencing to make it just like an in-person event, where you can ask questions and deepen your exploration of the course themes.
There’s no additional charge for connecting to Zoom with your computer or mobile device. Please note that dialing Zoom from your telephone is a toll call; your telephone service provider will charge you according to your existing long-distance calling plan. International access numbers are available.
“I’ve never seen a course so well put together ever...”
I had never participated before in an online course. The packaging, presentation, inclusion, and Facebook postings created a wonderful, safe cocoon within which to participate. I’ve never seen a course so well put together ever — not in all the years of taking college classes — and I had my doubts about doing an online course. The wealth of organization and ease of learning materials and support made this fun as well.
