From the age of 12, I studied Astrology and eventually came into contact with the extensive works of Alice A. Baileys and H.P. Blavatsky. Many discourses in Germany and abroad, also on television, followed. After the death of my mother, I wrote a small treatise on "Death and Birth - Living and Dying". Later seminars on death followed. I am sure that we will soon consciously recognise and celebrate death as a living transition.
