S2 Ep 37: Proof of Heaven?

S2 Ep 37: Proof of Heaven?

For years Dr. Eben Alexander dismissed the near-death revelations of God and heaven by his patients. But his opinion changed when the Harvard neurosurgeon spent 7 days in a coma due to E. coli meningitis. While comatose, he went on a profound spiritual experience that in his words, “took me beyond space and time to what seemed like the origin of all existence. It led him to pen his book “Proof of Heaven: A Neurosurgeon’s Journey Into the Afterlife.”

In this very unique episode of Distraction, Dr. Alexander talks with Dr. Hallowell about his experience, the books he’s written as a result, and the reaction he’s received from the scientific community. The conversation goes on a deep dive into many of the spiritual and scientific aspects of his journey.
