Thomas J. Sugrue

Thomas J. Sugrue (1907–1953) was an outstanding writer, authoring seven exceptional books and hundreds of articles. He sought the help of psychic Edgar Cayce for a rare arthritis disease for which conventional treatments were not working. He arrived at the Cayce's home in June of 1939 as a dying person with a few weeks to live. With Hugh Lynn Cayce as his nurse, he received readings from Edgar Cayce and treatment for his condition. He entered Cayce's home an invalid and left walking in October of 1941. It was during this time that he wrote There Is a River, the only biography of Edgar Cayce written during Cayce's lifetime and the book that made the psychic a household name in 1942. Still available, his biography of Cayce's life has touched the hearts of hundreds of thousands. He also lent his writing talents to the Edgar Cayce Association for Research and Enlightenment for numerous articles and news items.

Dr. Eben Alexander III MD with Karen Newell

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 – completely. 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. 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. His earlier books, Proof of Heaven: A Neurosurgeon's Journey into the Afterlife and The Map of Heaven: How Science, Religion, and Ordinary People Are Proving the Afterlife, have collectively spent more than two years atop the New York Times and international bestseller lists. ebenalexander.com
