Learning to Live by Dying Daily
Saturdays, 10 - 11 a.m. CT [UTC-06]
November 17 - December 8 (4 classes)

We will explore the understanding of death and what happens after death as perceived and articulated in three major religious traditions-Hinduism, Buddhism, and Christianity-and also in some Theosophical literature. We will also look at the available scientific data dealing with reincarnation, near-death experiences, and the shifts in attitudes of people nearing death; and consider the ways in which a conscious awareness of death can actually enliven our living.
