. . . from the Publisher

This, the second issue of the Truly Alive Magazine, Desert Southwest edition has many more Spanish articles than the first issue (which only had one). Feedback from the community pointed out that while the website has every single item in custom Spanish (click of a button; all Spanish), readers anticipated the print magazine to be “Bi-Lingual” as I promoted the new edition to be prior to launch.
So please enjoy many articles, including the feature in both English and custom Spanish. And by the way, “Custom Spanish” means that translations are done by a local El Paso native with a Masters’ Degree in linguistics. Karla Prieto speaks and writes perfect Spanish and English and we are honored to have her working with us.
The author of the books featured in this issue (Dr. Eben Alexander) is truly an amazing human. Having defied all explanation of medical science, he survived a rare form of meningitis to go on to a full recovery. His life is now filled with travel, speaking engagements and writing books with his life partner Karen Newell; sharing with others around the world, his amazing odyssey while in coma (2008) as well as his insights, findings and understandings since.
All 3 of his books, Proof of Heaven (2012), Map of Heaven (2014) and Living in a Mindful Universe (2017) are fascinating and enlightening . . . providing an extensive view into the experiences we have when not in human bodies. This is a subject I’ve always been fascinated with, and Dr. Alexander’s books are not only detailed, vivid and unique in their descriptions of his experiences, they are incredibly well written, articulate and compelling. Enjoy!
