Offering Support for Near Death Experiencers

The ultimate goal is to give support to NDE, OBE & STE (near death, out of body, & spiritual informational experiences) . It is sometimes very difficult to talk to people about your experience. I have had the opportunities all of my life and wish to assist others in their journey..this does not mean teaching, coaching or any religious involvement. If you have not been able to find support, no judgement, only serious folks.

web only icon for website - Truly Alive MagazineMastering Your Meditation

Held at: Tammy’s Edge (entrance in back), 301 Rio Grande Blvd. ABQ (Old Town)
Contact Info: Uval Trubitz 512-636-9885,

Mastering your meditation begins with ourselves.
Ongoing, Mondays 6:30-7:30pm

Our thoughts. Our emotions. Our desires. Our pain. Meditation is a deeply personal and potentially transformative experience. Find the rhythm of your own meditation. One gift meditation can offer is the opportunity to approach any situation with the benefit of time and awareness. Act instead of react; realizing not everything requires a reaction. The first step to releasing the pattern of reaction is to learn to sit with ourselves gently and without judgment. Create the choice of action or stillness, in heart, mind, body and soul. These classes will use a range of traditional and modern modalities to find what type of meditation helps you release, relax, form a deeper connection with the techniques, and where you find resonance.
