Description

Dr. Ravi Ravindra marries deep studies in both science and comparative religions to explore important questions of our age. In this community conversation, he will help us explore how holding an understanding of our own mortality can enrich our living.

Dr. Ravindra’s spiritual search has led him to the teachings of J. Krishnamurti, G. I. Gurdjieff, Zen, Yoga, and a deep immersion in the mystical teachings of the Indian and Christian classical traditions. He is the author of several books on religion, science, mysticism, and spirituality, including Whispers from the Other Shore: Spiritual Search--East and West, and Science and the Sacred: Eternal Wisdom in a Changing World.

Using these lenses, Dr. Ravindra will help us explore the questions that facing our own mortality brings to the surface, both personally and culturally. Mainstream American culture has a paradoxical relationship with dying. On the one hand, our media focuses on death through violence and war, and on the other hand, although we are all moving toward death from the moment of our birth, we turn away from the intimacy of considering our own dying or the death of those we love.
