|Tom Best Memorial|
June 27, 1946 to April 24, 2012
A bright light in the field of NLP (and in so many of our lives)
What do we do now?
“For the Love of Tom Best” Legacy Fund
Tom gave his heart over and over in many ways throughout his life. With the translation of his earthly body, he was also able to donate his physical heart.
Tom’s next gift will be through his words of wisdom and wit from over 27 years of training. The Legacy Fund will provide seed money for organizing and developing a media collection including CD’s, DVD’s, and books. Planting the seeds of an NLP scholarship program, to ensure NLP and other specialty trainings are accessible for those who would not otherwise get the chance, will be another one of the Legacy Fund projects.
In lieu of flowers or other traditional gifts, we would love to have you participate in preserving and making Tom’s teachings available. Donations can be mailed to “For the Love of Tom Best” Legacy Fund, 2935 Thousand Oaks, Suite 6-127, San Antonio, TX 78247. You can make checks or money orders payable to ‘Best Fund’.
A PayPal donation button is coming soon at www.nlpoptions.com.
Facebook Group: The Grace of Tom Best

You may feel the Love radiating, as you read the posts, enjoy the photos and videos, or relish the stories about this wonderful, loving man.
Woldwide Punco Celebrations
Tom Best helped to create many puncos or "pools of energy" all over the world. Many have expressed a desire to create a local ceremony in their community, a time to come together to honor the impact that Tom had on their lives, to send love in their own cultural and spiritual traditions to his wife, Bobbi, and other family and community members, and to begin to envision how to continue his work in their own lives. Bobbi loves this idea, and she knows Tom would be absolutely thrilled. She has one request – record them. If possible make video or audio recordings and send her a copy for her private review, to help heal her heart.
