Proof of Heaven Author To Release Original Audio Program

Jul 30, 2013, 14:08 ET from Simon & Schuster

NEW YORK, July 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Simon & Schuster Audio is proud to announce the publication of SEEKING HEAVEN: Sound Journeys Into the Beyond by Dr. Eben Alexander on September 13th, 2013. This program will be available exclusively on audio.

Dr. Alexander is the author of the number one bestseller Proof of Heaven: A Neurosurgeon's Journey into the Afterlife. Since its publication in October of 2012, Proof of Heaven has been a bestseller across print, digital and audio formats. The book has spent more than 40 weeks on The New York Times bestseller list and the audio has been a longstanding Publishers Weekly bestseller.

In Proof of Heaven, Dr. Alexander details his near-death experience when he lay in coma for seven days, during which he journeyed beyond this world into the deepest realms of super-physical existence and met the Divine source of the universe itself.  Looking back on his experience, he describes listening to audio programs that guide him to a deeper level of consciousness and help him return to an idyllic realm similar to the universal dimension of peace, acceptance and unconditional love that he visited in coma. SEEKING HEAVEN grew out of Dr. Alexander's wish to share his experience with others and his belief that this awakening is available to everyone.

"Ever since my own life-changing experience," says Dr. Alexander, "I have wanted to help others find their individual awakening.  SEEKING HEAVEN is the next step in my journey to that end. As I mention in Proof of Heaven, you don't have to almost die to glimpse behind the veil -- but you must do the work.  We each have to go deep into our own consciousness, through prayer or meditation, to access these truths."

The four half-hour audio meditations included in SEEKING HEAVEN parallel the four stages of the author's near-death experience and offer listeners the opportunity to get in touch with the profound wisdom imparted in the spiritual realms he visited and apply it to their own lives. Developed and presented with audio meditation specialist Karen Newell, co-founder of Sacred Acoustics, and featuring commentary and insights from Dr. Alexander, SEEKING HEAVEN will be a must-have companion for all who were moved by his message in Proof of Heaven.
