Our late autumn theme is “Death and Life”.
Ernest Becker wrote in The Denial of Death:
“The idea of death, the fear of it, haunts the human animal like nothing else; it is a mainspring of human activity — designed largely to avoid the fatality of death, to overcome it by denying in some way that it is the final destiny of man.”
What place does death have in a Naturalistic Pagan practice? What meaning does the fact of our mortality give to our lives? What depth does it bring to our spirituality?
