Spiritually Transformative Experiences

What is STE?

STE is a spiritual experience that alters perception and reality once experienced. Such experiences expand consciousness, heighten psychic sensitivity, alter reality, questions values, beliefs, and purpose of life. This may be triggered by Near-Death Experiences (NDE), precognition, kundalini awakening, grief, depression including psychedelics, and religious experiences.
