This evening presentation will take place at Common Ground Spiritual Center from 7:00 - 8:30 p.m. Dr. Betty J. Kovacs will focus on The Miracle of Death and will touch upon the subject of death from the perspective of Stephen Levine's book, Year to Live: How to Live This Year as Though it Were Your Last.
Within about three years Dr. Betty Kovacs lost her mother, her only child, and her husband in three separate automobile accidents. To survive their absence from the physical world, she had to learn to hold the threads of life in one hand and the threads of death in the other. In this presentation she will speak about having to learn how to live in harmony between the worlds of life and death and how to weave them together into one dynamic, living fabric. She will share some of her family's precognitive dreams, visions, after-death communications and synchronistic events that surrounded the deaths in her family. In addition, she will discuss new scientific insights on the survival of consciousness as well as cultural limitations that we must confront as we embark on our journey into deeper orders of reality.
Our health and well-being require that we live our lives as consciously and joyfully as possible. Understanding the miracle of death will help us to live each moment fully and then let it go.

We confront the belief that there’s nothing but matter, that death is the end of everything. We embrace the new worldview that there’s nothing but Life, birth and death are events in time and space, and grief can open us to this new consciousness.
