Going. Going! GONE? - - Conversations about the Nature of Life and Death
Dying is the No. 2 fear of Americans, public speaking is No. 1. Of course, you can always avoid the latter. However, in this three-part series, host and fearless public speaker Warren Etheredge will tackle both phobias, inviting three fellow mortals  a seeker, a physician and a spiritual leader  to join him on stage for three separate, frank, funny and enlightening conversations about the nature of our existence and a better understanding of our alleged ends.

Sponsored by Bastyr University's Center for Spirituality, Science and Medicine

OCTOBER 20, ACT 1: "going"
"Do not fear death so much, but rather the inadequate life."  Bertolt Brecht

If you can read this message, you are dying. Hate to break it to you, but Death is one of Life's unavoidable side effects. The grace with which we address our mortality and that of our loved ones is critical to our experience of our living days. Of course, for some, ignoring the inevitable is difficult and, arguably, unwise. So, how do we best proceed with our own lives knowing they may come to an end at any moment while watching those around us perish? How we find peace in the transitory? Is there a better Life before Death?

NOVEMBER 3, ACT 2: "Going!"
"You only live twice. Once when you are born and once when you look death in the face."  Ian Fleming

This is the end, my friend. The doctor will call the time of death and it will be official. But is this transition as definite as science and bureaucracy register it or is the line between Life and Death fuzzier than politicians' math? For someone who faces death daily and, briefly, has journeyed beyond, what should we know about those final moments and those thereafter that might bring us comfort, wisdom and love?

"We sometimes congratulate ourselves the moment of waking from a troubled dream; it may be so the moment after death."  Nathaniel Hawthorne

Turn out the lights, the party's over. Or, is it? World religions prescribe many different itineraries for our after-lives, whether reunions with our loved ones, penance for past sins or the (environmentally sound?) recycling of our spirits. Should the promise/threat of an alternate reality or a second go-round alter our behavior in this Life? Can we count on one more chance or resign ourselves, as Woody Allen feared, to sitting through the Ice Capades once again?
