Co-Founders

Eben Alexander, III, MD

"My near-death experience (NDE) compelled me to establish Eternea which I co-founded with my colleague, John R. Audette. For me personally, Eternea represents a passionate effort to apply in pragmatic ways the profound insights I received during my NDE, to serve the greater good of humanity. Eternea aspires to promote love, unity, harmony, collaboration and cooperation globally. It is dedicated to the advancement of human civilization and a sustainable healthy future for earth and its inhabitants. The insights from my NDE, and many others like it, once fully grasped and accepted by a critical mass, will trigger a dramatic and beneficial shift in human nature, as well as in the nature of social, political and economic systems."

"Welcome to Eternea. Here you will find a treasure chest of factual information that can change the way you view yourself, the world around you and reality in general. This information can literally transform your values, perceptions and priorities, as well as your beliefs about life’s meaning and purpose. It can open your mind to a whole new set of possibilities for your existence, for what you might accomplish with your time on earth. Here you will learn from leading edge research that you are an infinite spiritual being surrounded by eternity, that your existence is not limited to the physical body in which you now find yourself.

As more people undergo change in this way, a better future for earth and all its inhabitants becomes more probable. This is Eternea's goal and purpose."
