Dying to Live: Conversations and Stories on the Art of Living, Loving, and Dying is a weekly podcast examining the reality of death and the importance of what it means to be alive.
Living and dying are intimately woven together, and the key to understanding both is found in love.
When asked what is the span of a human life, the Buddha is said to have replied, The span of an inbreath and outbreath. The circle of life and death challenges us to face the mystery of it all, as well as practical and profound issues that our society does not address well. This will be the focus on the Dying to Live podcasts.
Dying to Live will face the challenge of exploring the mystery of our mortality.
Dying to Live theme music by Michelle Qureshi.

Wonderful conversation with the extraordinary Richard Brendan about The Boy Who Died and Came Back for his radio show. Richard gets to the soul of what matters. He got me talking, without inhibitions.
