 Kelvin Chin, author of a new book titled Overcoming the Fear of Death, executive director of Overcoming the Fear of Death Foundation will discuss the book and the concept of death and dying at 7 p.m. on Thursday, April 6 at the East Bank Regional Library, 4747 West Napoleon, Metairie.

The event is free of charge and is open to the public. Registration is not required.

Death is inevitable. But what is it? Is it the end, the beginning, or a transition? Chin says that how we understand and view death directly affects how we respond to the death of a loved one and how we think about our own death. “Helping people overcome their fear of death involves increasing that understanding and can, in some cases, also involve opening one’s awareness and receptivity to one’s past memories that may go back many years, even lifetimes.”

Kelvin H. Chin has been lecturing, conducting trainings, and leading workshops for more than 40 years. He is a “Life After Life” expert and meditation teacher. He focuses on helping people improve the quality of their lives now by overcoming their fear of death, and by developing a more balanced, productive and enjoyable life, mentally-physically-emotionally, by turning within through meditation. Chin has worked with audiences on death and dying issues since the 1980s, and has taught meditation worldwide to more than 1,000 people since the 1970s, including in schools, businesses, the U.S. Army and at West Point.

Chin is a graduate of Dartmouth College, Yale Graduate School, and Boston College Law School. He has lectured throughout the United States and in six other countries. He lives in Austin.
