Death and our understanding of death are absolutely empty. No clear image comes to mind. The concept of death has a use for the living. All we can say about death is that it is either real or it is not real. If it is real, then the end of one's life is a simple end. If it is not real, then the end of one's embodied life is not true death, but transference to another life. We are all equals when thinking about death, lost in the ignorance of our own limitations, death is a fact of life but a mystery of creation.

Cost: $40 for the series.

Location: Cathedral Center 840 Echo Park Ave. Los Angeles CA 90026. Join us from 7:30pm-9:30pm on Tuesday evenings. Dinner provided.

Night 4 (Mar 20th)

Cheapness of Life -- We may be able to face other people’s death but may find it virtually impossible to come to terms with our own death. Are we sensitive to death or just to personal loss? Why are we not effected when the dead and dying are the other, the unknown, or the distant?
