“Death & Beyond: Comparative Reflections on World Religious Traditions”
Acquire knowledge and appreciation of ways in which death, dying, and the meaning of life function in the major religious traditions of the world. The search for meaning after death has always been an integral part of every religion’s system of beliefs and many personal spiritual quests, and the answers vary significantly. Today, explore what we learn from the ancient voices of world religions about the meaning of life and death, the process of dying, and life after death using different visions of life, death, and the afterlife from a variety of religious and cultural perspectives, both Eastern and Western. Stories, teachings, and rituals from the major religious traditions, as well as contemporary scholarly discussions, are examined to illuminate the ultimate life event: death.

What does it mean to be both seer and seen simultaneously? Explore how a neuroscientist understands the dazzling interplay of synapses that we call sight, and what transpires in the mind’s eye of a visual artist. “The eye with which I see is the very same eye with which God sees me,” but what does this mean for you?
Delve into ancient wisdoms and stories about the mysterious ‘blind seer,’ and about God bestowing a ‘divine eye’ to the devotee. There are so many stories that explore this theme, and always more questions. Can we “wake up to find out that we are the eyes of the world”?
