5/17 Bohm Dialogue — Death

Why do we glorify youth and fear aging and death?  Is death a final end or does some part of us live on, and which is the scarier/more hopeful prospect? We will dialogue about these ideas and whatever else we individually and collectively bring to our circle.

The Religious Exploration Salon is a group that meets 3rd Sundays to discuss various topics in the format called Bohm Dialogue.  The topic for May 17 is “Death“.  Two months ago we talked about Being Mortal: medical care at the end of life and stuck to mainly practical aspects.  This time we intend to delve into the topic of death more deeply, considering the spiritual, cultural, religious, and philosophical sides.

David Bohm

Suppose we were able to share meanings freely without a compulsive urge to impose our view or conform to those of others and without distortion and self-deception.
Would this not constitute a real revolution in culture?
– David Bohm

For more details about how Dialogue works, please see our January article.

Everyone is welcome. You are welcome to think about the topic beforehand but no preparation is required or expected — come as you are with whatever thoughts/feelings/intuitions you have, ready to listen, learn and contribute.  Our next meeting will be on Sunday May 17th at 7pm in the Brackett Room.
