Death Makes Life Possible film - Santa Fe NM
[Tickets available at the door for $20 the evening of the event.]

Death Makes Life Possible is a new award-winning film produced by Marilyn Schlitz PhD and Deepak Chopra MD to transform the fear of death into an inspiration for living.

Death is something that most people prefer not to think about. But what if contemplating death and facing our mortality allowed us to live our lives more fully  without fear and to be more present to the preciousness and beauty of life?

It is with this sense of curiosity and hope that Death Makes Life Possible approaches an often taboo topic. This new documentary film follows cultural anthropologist and scientist Marilyn Schlitz, PhD, as she explores the mysteries of life and death from a variety of perspectives and world traditions. Interviews with mental health experts, cultural leaders, and scientists are interwoven with personal stories of people facing their own death as well as those who report encounters beyond death.

Featured are leading scientists, anthropologists, philosophers, spiritual teachers, and thinkers, including Deepak Chopra, Edgar Mitchell, Dean Ornish, Dean Radin, Tony Redhouse, Rupert Sheldrake, Rudy Tanzi, Luisah Teish, Jim Tucker, and others.

The film makes the case that we have much to gain by facing our fear of death and asking what death might have to offer our lives. The interviews and evidence presented are interwoven with personal stories of people facing their own death as well as those who report encounters beyond death. The narrative is illustrated with vivid imagery.

The 35th Annual Telly Awards honored the film with their highest award, a Silver Telly, in the Documentary Category and a Bronze Telly in the Religious/Spiritual Category. The film also won the 2014 Gutsy Gals Film Award for Special Category Contemporary Spirituality, and has been an official selection in numerous acclaimed film festivals.

The post-screening discussion will be facilitated by event host, Jennifer Mathews, MA. Jennifer's focus is encouraging fresh perspectives on death and dying as a way to enrich our human experience and connect to the spirit of who we are.
