is dedicated to developing as broad a body of work as possible on how people have developed a life-affirming death awareness by transforming experiences with or pain about death into love for life.

         To that end, we invited reader to send us their own stories or other materials that talk about how they have faced death in a way that transforms life.

         We will not only post material we believe appropriate but, if participants wish, contact you about how you might want to help develop

         We are interested not only in your own personal story, but any other material - writings, music, video, movies - that you think might inspire people to become more truly alive by facing death.

         Please send all materials by:
