Stephen Jenkinson


Event Details


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. Join us for an evening of 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.

About Stephen Jenkinson: Stephen is a teacher, spiritual activist, storyteller, author of Die Wise: A Manifesto for Sanity and Soul, and founder of the Orphan Wisdom School. With Master's degrees from Harvard University (Theology) and the University of Toronto (Social Work), he is revolutionizing grief and dying in North America.
