A Walk with Death…
Death is one of the most important things about our lives, and yet many people have remarkably shallow views on it, preferring to settle for religious folk tales rather than using our aliveness to explore its apparent opposite.
Certain authors, including our cover image writer, Terry Pratchett, have cleverly used humour to explore this question.
Philosophical history is full of excellent accounts of the journey of death, but how will we know which are useful and which fanciful?
The Vedic and Egyptian civilisations – to name but two – had detailed descriptions of what we should expect after death.
We will be asking for guest speakers to take a ten-minute slot to give us an overview of their interpretations.
Finally, we will ask whether a spiritual understanding of life can equip us better to encounter death… and take that walk with ‘the Reaper’!
In this first of the ‘dark months’ join us for seriousness and merriment as we throw ourselves into this challenging topic!
