Bring your curiosity, your questions, and an open mind for a journey to the other side and back.

Complete Time Out Chicago review (March, 2012):
"The A.V. Club went to one of the good doctor’s early presentations and came away thoroughly squicked out and enchanted with all the new stuff we learned....[The class] makes death seem soft, quieter, or even a little more understandable. " -AV Club Chicago (April, 2012):
"...really fascinating, and Dr. Margolis does a great job of explaining....This lecture explores issues I didn't anticipate....If you're not particularly squeamish, naturally curious, and want to experience something far outside the realm of everyday life, I recommend this lecture" - M.S. (attendee)
"...very informative and educational....Highly recommend!" - A.L.D. (attendee)
