Gifts for Living Introduction

Introduction by Fr. Carl Arico

During four days of filming in December 2010, Fr. Thomas Keating sat with Fr. Carl Arico, his long-time friend, colleague, and founding member of Contemplative Outreach in an intimate conversation focused on the transformative process of death and dying as part of, rather than the end of, life’s journey. The Gift of Life: Death & Dying, Life & Living offers a vision of hope and a view of reality that counter the cultural norms that view death as a tragedy, or the end of living, or an entry into harsh judgment and retribution.

Over six hours of footage from the interview was not used in the series. Each week during 2013, bits of this unused footage will be posted to the website. We call these tidbits Gifts for Living …. May it be so.

English Transcript

These last two years I hope you’ve been enjoying the series The Habit of Heartfulness which were selected pieces that were not used in the creation of Heartfulness, the series itself.

Well, we have another wonderful gift for you – Gifts for Living, taken from materials that were not used in our new series called: The Gift of Life: Death & Dying, Life & Living. Gifts for Living will begin next week and it’s our gift to you for all your support and all your prayers. Blessings.
