Death Makes LIFE Possible

~Co-presented with West Marin Senior Services and Hospice by the Bay~

Join anthropologist, researcher, and author Marilyn Schlitz, with West Marin Senior Services staff and representatives from Hospice by the Bay, for a film screening of Marilyn’s 60-minute film, Death Makes Life Possible, followed by a spirited discussion.

Her film explores the mysteries of life and death from a variety of perspectives and world traditions. Sparked by her own near death experience as a teenager, Marilyn has been delving into the nature of consciousness and death for the past three decades. She presents a wealth of teachings and practical guidance on how to turn this taboo topic into a source of peace, hope, connection, and compassion.
