Death, Dying, & the Afterlife 1 - OnlineBunker Tue, 1/5/21 410:00 AM11:30 AM $15.00
Everyone dies, nobody is immortal. It is the one thing that we will all experience, which at the same time, may give us anxiety and many sleepless nights. If we do not think about it, we think it may not come. In an effort to better prepare us for the unavoidable, this course is the first in a series of three courses. It is based on lectures from one of the The Great Courses of the same title. The courses in the series will be complemented by some appropriate TED Talks, which may help allay our fears. The more we know about a subject, the better prepared we are to confront it. Participation is strongly encouraged by sharing personal experiences of a beloved departed friend or family member and how it has impacted our lives.
