Spiritual Wisdom About Death and Dying with Rabbi Ted Falcon

Rabbi Ted Falcon, PhD

Just as nothing is certain but death and taxes, few people want to broach either subject with a room full of people.

But a conversation about death doesn’t have to be only about, well, death. Leave it to the Bastyr University Center for Spirituality, Science and Medicine to launch a series that not only explores death and dying, but also the art of living with more ease and love and humor (and less fear and anxiety).

The series, “going. Going! GONE!” culminates Thursday, March 1, with Act 3, “GONE!” from 6-8 p.m. in the Bastyr University Chapel. The featured guest is local spiritual teacher, author and clinical psychologist Rabbi Ted Falcon, PhD, in conversation with Warren Etheredge of The High Bar.

Rabbi Ted has pioneered a modern mystical and meditative Jewish, yet universal, spirituality in his more than 40 years as a congregational rabbi and therapist in private practice, and more recently in his books and presentations as one of the three Interfaith Amigos.

As always (and he's been right every time), Etheredge promises that the conversation will be "funny, frank and enlightening." Tickets are $12 and will be sold at the door 30 minutes before start time. For more information or to purchase advance tickets, contact Cindy Butler-Smith at 425-602-3129 or cbutler@bastyr.edu.
