The Consciousness & Transformative Studies MA Program at JFK University is starting a new “Dialogues in Consciousness” series to be offered free to the JFKU community and the general public.
The first of the Spring 2015 series will be offered on Thursday, April 30 at 7:15 PM, with a brief meet-and-greet starting at 7 PM.
We are very proud (and happy) to present Dr. Marilyn Schlitz and the 1 hour film she produced with Deepak Chopra, “Death Makes Life Possible.” The film follows her exploration of the mysteries of life and death from a variety of perspectives and world traditions. Sparked by her own near death experience as a teenager, Schlitz has been delving into the nature of consciousness and death for the past three decades.
The film looks at how popular culture deals with the ever-present fear many have about our own mortality. Interviews with mental health experts, cultural leaders, and scientists explore the meaning of death and how we can learn to live without fear. The interviews and evidence presented are interwoven with personal stories of people facing their own death as well as those who report encounters beyond death. The narrative is illustrated with vivid imagery.
Following the film will be an interview and discussion with Dr. Schlitz.
