You are welcome to join us at any meeting!

Welcome! This group is intended to provide a safe, supportive and friendly environment for sharing and exploring near-death and similar experiences. We also discuss where our loved ones who have already passed are now, and whether they can communicate with us, along with how consciousness has been shown to exist outside the body. Reincarnation is discussed as well. 

We are open to the public.
