An On-line “Community of the Abandoned”
TrulyAlive.org has been designed to evolve into an on-line community of people who wish to support each other in becoming more truly alive by developing a life-affirming death awareness. Abandoned by fate, unable to take full solace from traditional answers to death, we turn to each other for encouragement and inspiration in learning to live more fully in the face of our eventual passing.
In its initial stage, TrulyAlive.org offers people an opportunity to post messages that share their own experiences in facing not denying death. These postings include (a) experiences from the past; (2) ongoing experiences in the present, such as sharing thoughts and feelings about dealing with the serious illness and/or death of a loved one; and (3) experiences in developing a practice of becoming more truly alive by facing not denying our death.
As this website evolves, it will offer opportunities and encouragement to:
- post audio and video, as well as written messages;
- participate in on-line discussion groups and, eventually, chats;
- form local “TrulyAlive.org” groups, where people meet to support each other.
