Book Discussion & Signing - "Overcoming the Fear of Death"
Offered by the Austin Bahá'í Community Sunday Fireside Committee
[THIS EVENT will be on "FACEBOOK LIVE"]
“Overcoming the Fear of Death: Through Each of the 4 Main Belief Systems” — What is death? Is it the end, the beginning, or a transition?
Author and Life After Life Expert Kelvin Chin will help us rethink both how we respond to the death of a loved one, and how we think about our own death. He will discuss the 4 main beliefs that underlie all the religious and cultural beliefs about death that exist in the world. By looking through the lens of each of those beliefs, he is able to discuss death and dying in a non-religious way to help people of all ages and cultures reduce and eliminate their fear of death. The 4 Main Beliefs About Death: 1) No Belief in Afterlife 2) Afraid of Afterlife 3) No Fear of Afterlife 4) Belief in Past Lives
This discussion will be thought provoking, yet entertaining since Kelvin is a story-teller. All ages are welcome.

Kelvin Chin and 9 other Interviews of Key National Experts at -
Learn from 10 men and women who have dedicated their lives to caregiving, to people just like you.
Why are we doing a 3-Day Virtual Training devoted exclusively to caregiving?
- Because 65 million people face elderly caregiving with absolutely no training or preparation
- Because 80% of caregivers report caregiving negatively impacts their family life
- Because 65% of the elderly rely exclusively on family and friends for assistance
- Because the stress of family caregiving for persons with dementia has been shown to impact a person’s immune system for up to three years after their caregiving ends
There is no doubt about it – caregiving can tax even the most dedicated, patient and loving person. There are definite, measurable physical and financial costs as well. The average family caregiver for someone 50 years or older spends $5,531 per year on out of pocket caregiving expenses – that’s more that 10% of the median family income.
Another study found that American businesses lose $17.1 Billion per year due to family caregiving.
Another shows that 40% to 70% of family caregivers have clinically significant symptoms of depression.
The problem is huge and there are very few people and groups addressing this issue. Businesses aren’t helping, politicians aren’t helping.
We have been in your shoes – we know what it’s like first-hand. We remember the feelings of isolation and overwhelm, believing that no one else understood what we were going through.
So we put together a compilation of the best experts we could find to present solid, up-to-the-minute information to help make your life easier.
Bottom line, we care about caregivers.
