Lyrion and I will be exploring Death the Great Mystery. Though a huge topic for an hour discussion, we’ll be examining Death as the Great Mystery, creatively dealing with what happens after life ends; the Soul as the Great Poker Chip; paranormal experiences; how the Boomers are creating their own funeral traditions; marketing death.
Lyrion is a High Priestess, and performs rituals of passing and tradition, and teaches seminars on death and dying in New England.
Death as Great Mystery – all religions were created to grapple with this.
The Soul as the Great Bargaining Poker Chip – do as I say & your soul will be saved – you’ll get to heaven – Bargaining with Deity
