The universe is evolving in vast and fascinating ways. You are not only a part of it—you are it.
The Mindful Universe in which we live is self-aware, learning, and evolving. As you come to know this fully through personal experience, you discover the pathway toward harmony. Never is this one soul’s journey, but a massive evolution of consciousness in which we are all essential participants.
Join Eben Alexander and Karen Newell for a weekend immersed in our mindful universe. Through heart activation, experiential sound meditations, open discussions, and other exercises, you connect to the deeper realities of existence and explore the heart’s crucial role in moving away from the linguistic brain to access profound insight from personal experience.
As you come to better understand your own soul’s journey and how it interrelates with all evolving consciousness, each of us acknowledges our true purpose. Together, we can shift the world paradigm into one that affirms the oneness and interconnectedness of all.
