The hope of an afterlife has been a major concern in humanity's consciousness even longer than civilization itself.
Many religions claim the right reward or
punishment when the body finally collapses. Secular groups accept
the complete finality death brings. However, unlike our ancestors
and even with all the choices available, humans are more
apprehensive than ever of the final frontier, which is the cause for
seismic anxiety and the inability to live a full life.
Beyond archetypes, symbols, and blind
faith, we attempt to reveal how understanding and accepting death is
truly one of the greatest keys to the freedom of mind and heart (and
the path to Wisdom). And of course we visit the Gnostic point of
view on the wheel of death and life.
