"Living in the Light of Death," presented by Bill Dietrich.
Denial of death pervades many cultures, reflecting our fear of the inevitable and perhaps our illusion of immortality. It denies the essential unity of death and life, which Richard Rohr calls "two sides of the same coin." As Etty Hillesum, echoing countless spiritual teachers from many traditions, once wrote: "[B]y excluding death from our life, we cannot live a full life, and by admitting death into our life we can enlarge and enrich it."
