What do our faiths traditions teach us about the spiritual meaning of death and dying? What can we learn from the rituals and practices of our faith traditions surrounding death? How does one contemplate mortality as spiritual practice? How does one contemplate loss and trial as spiritual preparation?
“The Sacred Meaning of Death" is part of an ongoing series of “Conversations on Meaning" hosted by the Center for Interfaith Relations http://centerforinterfaithrelations.org in collaboration with local partners. This event was in collaboration with the Before I Die Festival (http://BeforeIDieLou.com) a ‘Festival for the Living about Dying’.
