Tomorrow is Promised to No One: What Death Can Teach Us About Love (with Katia Bozhikova)

  • The Assemblage NoMad 114 east 25th street New York, NY (map)

"Death is our friend precisely because it brings us into absolute and passionate presence with all that is here, that is natural, that is love." - Rainer Maria Rilke

Join us for an evening exploring two of the great vehicles of meaning in life; love and death. First, Dr. Jordana Jacobs will speak about death from a psychological perspective, with a focus on how our Western, unconscious denial of impermanence impedes upon our ability to love fully. Katia will then tell the story of her journey being diagnosed with stage four cancer, highlighting how her new relationship to death has fundamentally altered the way she lives. This will be followed by a discussion between Jordana and Katia on the spiritual growth, wisdom, and love that can stem from our acceptance of the fact that indeed, tomorrow is promised to no one.
