Join us for a time devoted to grief and wonder, and some prescription scribbled in the sand for what a withered world might now ask of younger folk and of the older folk among us who love them.
Imagine a future that replaces retirement with esteemed elderhood, where young people receive recognition of their worth and purpose, and see living examples of enduring discernment and courage for the hard and often empty times that are upon us all. Stephen Jenkinson believes the esteem of parents and friends can only go so far: Elders must bring the rest. Our work is to sort out what being human should be in such a time.
Harvard educated theologian and founder of The Orphan Wisdom School (orphanwisdom.com) Author of Money and the Soul’s Desires, How It All Could Be: A Workbook for Dying People and Those Who Love Them, and the award-winning Die Wise: A Manifesto For Sanity and Soul, which is Stephen’s latest book about grief and dying, and the great love of life.
Stephen is the subject of the National Film Board of Canada feature length film documentary – Grief Walker
