Event Details

                                 “Death, Dying and Transformation"

  Diverse panel of experts to discuss what happens when we die.

                         www.deathdyingandtransformation.com

  

It's commonly said that as a culture, we're in denial when it comes to anything surrounding

death and dying.  Yet, a look at the bestseller lists shows that we're also obsessed with such

topics.  This panel brings together noted professionals in the field who believe that only by

approaching death in a compassionate and mature manner can we lessen our own fears,

and help others through the dying process.

 

Please join us for a thought-provoking discussion with:

 

        Dr. Janice Holden, Ed.D. is a professor and department chair at University of North

Texas.  She serves as editor of The Journal of Near Death Studies and collaborated on

her own work, The Handbook of Near Death Experience, which chronicles thirty years of

research on the subject.

 

        Dr. Gus W. Krucke, MD is a doctor of emergency medicine and internal medicine at

Thomas Street Health Center and serves as medical director at the Omega House AIDS

Hospice.  He has served on many panels regarding end of life care and medical ethics. 

Dr. Krucke is also the recipient of the Leonard Tow Humanism in Medicine Award from

the University of Texas Medical School.

 

        Dr. Susan Lieberman, Ph.D. is the author of eight books (including her most recent:

Death, Dying, and Dessert).  She co-founded the Y Collective in Houston, an end-of-life

consultancy that helps individuals, families, businesses and organizations accept death

as part of life and reduce the anxiety and stress surrounding it.

 

        Lama Ole Nydahl is an internationally renowned Buddhist Lama and is one of the

most experienced teachers in the world of a Tibetan Buddhist meditation practice known

as Phowa, or “Conscious Dying”.  His current book, Fearless Death: Buddhist Wisdom

on the Art of Dying, offers practical advice for approaching death without fear.
