Vail Symposium Panel: Physicians’ Perspectives of Near-Death Experiences
March 16 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Physicians’ Perspectives of Near-Death Experiences
with Dr. Eben Alexander, Dr. Raymond Moody & Dr. Mary Neal | Moderated by Karen Newell
The Donovan Pavilion | Vail
5:30-6:00 Reception | 6pm Moderated Panel Discussion
A lively panel discussion between physicians who have been to the other side and back, and one who has researched NDEs and related phenomena for over 40 years. Hear firsthand what these doctors experienced; learn how they had to rethink everything learned in medical school, why they know their NDEs were real and why NDEs and related spiritual experiences are important to us all.
With extensive medical backgrounds, each member of this panel now calls for more understanding of how consciousness lives outside of the body. The group will discuss life after death, how past lives and experiences therein shape current realities, and how Divine beings exist to help and guide us in different levels of consciousness.
Dr. Eben Alexander, a renowned academic neurosurgeon and author of “Proof of Heaven,” spent more than three decades honing his scientific worldview. He thought he knew how the brain, mind and consciousness worked. A transcendental near-death experience, in which he was driven to the brink of death and spent a week deep in coma from an inexplicable brain infection, changed all of that. He now works to unite science and spirituality.
Dr. Raymond Moody is a is a psychologist, philosopher and author who coined the term “Near Death Experience” in 1975 with his popular book “Life After Life.” He has documented thousands of individual near death experiences, arriving at the conclusion that there is life after death. Dr. Moody uses logic as a basis for his research in a unique approach to this complicated topic.
Dr. Mary Neal is a practicing orthopedic spine surgeon in Jackson, Wyoming who had an NDE when trapped under-water in her kayak in a remote waterfall in the jungle of Southern Chile. She authored a book titled “To Heaven and Back.”
Karen Newell, of Sacred Acoustics, will moderate the panel.
