For those of you who do not know Stephen Jenkinson, MTS, MSW, he is a Harvard Educated Theologian, Culture Activist, founder of The Orphan Wisdom School. He is the author of Die Wise: A Manifesto for Sanity and Soul, the award-winning book about grief, and dying, and the great love of life. He is the subject of a National Film Board of Canada documentary, Griefwalker. He brings teachings of the ramshackling kind, about honour and grace under pressure, about how we might learn our darkening times. His new book, Come of Age: The Case of Elderhood in a Time of Trouble , wonders about elderhood in an age of age-intolerance, and about the withering of the World Tree. With Gregory Hoskins and band, Stephen has offered Nights of Grief & Mystery to sold out houses on three continents. This year they are at again for the 2019 North American Nights of Grief & Mystery Tour.

See you November 2nd!
