The Shared Death Experience (SDE). Most people know of or know someone who has experienced a Near Death Experience (NDE), but very few have heard of the SDE. The SDE is similar to the NDE except that it occurs not to the person who is dying, but to their loved one who is physically well. That person could be sitting right next to their loved one, or sitting across the room, or even across the globe unaware of the impending death of someone they love.

Jaxon-Bear

A life long search for freedom took Eli Jaxon-Bear around the world and into many spiritual traditions from a Zen monastery in Japan to a Sufi circle in Marrakesh among others. His search ended when he was drawn to India (1990) where he met his final teacher, Sri H.W.L Poona lovingly known as Papaji; a direct disciple of the renowned Indian Sage Ramana Maharshi.

Confirming Eli's realization, his teacher sent him back into the world to share his unique psychological insights into the nature of egoic suffering in support of self-realization.

Eli infuses his teaching with his teacher’s living transmission of silence and peace. He presents a unique map of egoic identification as a vehicle for ruthless self-inquiry and final realization of true freedom. His life is dedicated to passing on the transmission of his teacher.

Eli founded and currently teaches through the Leela Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to world peace and freedom through universal self-realization. As well as, The Leela School. Eli’s is the author of Sudden Awakening (Hampton Roads), The Enneagram of Liberation, From Fixation to Freedom, (Gangaji Foundation Press), the third edition of the spiritual classic Wake Up and Roar: Satsang with Papaji (New Morning Books), An Outlaw Makes It Home: The Awakening of a Spiritual Revolutionary (New Morning Books).
