“It is not the end of the physical body that should worry us. Rather, our concern must be to live while we’re alive – to release our inner selves from the spiritual death that comes with living behind a facade designed to conform to external definitions of who and what we are.”
Episode 43: Kelvin Chin, Author, Speaking and Teacher
Kelvin Chin founded the Overcoming the Fear of Death Foundation more than 30 years ago. His efforts are dedicated to assisting individuals improve their quality of life through an approach that is based on understanding death and aligning it with four respective belief systems – whatever they may be. Kelvin’s goal is to reduce or eliminate the fear of death and refocus individuals on living a better daily life. He is the best-selling author of Overcoming the Fear of Death: Through Each of the Four Main Belief Systems.
Woody Allen once said, “I’m not afraid of dying, I just don’t want to be there when it happens.” All of us will face death one day. The question is, “Do you want to be present when it happens?” Kelvin Chin provides insight in his book about facing our fears and learning to live knowing one day it will all come to an end.
Kelvin is also the founder of TurningWithin.org, a meditation guide to learning how to let go and find inner peace on our own personal journey down the path that leads us through life and ultimately to our death. He helps individuals develop a more balanced, productive and enjoyable life—mentally, physically and emotionally through Skype, phone and in-person.
