SPECIES WELLBEING AND SURVIVAL

Affirming life by facing death is not only important for individuals wishing to be more truly alive. It may also be needed for the human species to remain alive. It may well be that we cannot save the biosphere upon which we depend for life, mobilize the investment needed to pass on a better society to our grandchildren, reduce world poverty, or significantly reduce violence, unless our leaders and social institutions develop a life-affirming death awareness.
