As it is, we must hold to other things, because Death is coming.

I love death – not morbidly, but because He explains.

He shows me the emptiness of Money.

Death and Money are the eternal foes.

Not Death and Life. . . .

Death destroys a man: the idea of Death saves him.

Behind the coffins and the skeletons that stay the vulgar mind lies something

so immense that all that is great in us responds to it.

E.M. Forster, Howards End, 2002

This website welcomes and is dedicated to all those who wish to philosophically explore the meaning of death and the afterlife from a transpersonal or psychospiritual perspective.  It is not a site which provides practical information relating to such things as advanced care directives, funeral or burial planning or grief support; there are a plethora of excellent websites and online resources widely available.

This is a space which serves as a means where in moments of solitude, visitors may reflect on their own thoughts, feelings and spiritual life perspectives.

What does it mean to be born?  What does it mean to die?  Why are we born, if only to die?  For what purpose are we born, and when we die, what then?  And how is it that the idea of death can save us?  Save us from what?  I’ve spent my whole life finding out and in 2013 that journey was consolidated in the completion of a PhD in bereavement, grief and the afterlife at the University of Sydney, Australia.

The findings from that research were so profound that I created a dedicated website to report and make them available to the general public, and I invite you to read them for yourself at Ways of Being
