In this unmissable episode, emotions are raw and real as Stephen Jenkinson imparts fatherly wisdom on this young “elder in training”. We face head on the confusion and dysfunction of our time and the unmet grief that results from carrying on with business as usual while the world falls apart. This conversation challenged my assumptions and fundamentally changed something in me as you will clearly hear.

In 2010, he founded Orphan Wisdom, a house for learning skills of deep living and making human culture that are mandatory in endangered times. When not on the road, he makes books, succumbs to interviews, tends to labors on a small farm, mends broken handles and fences, and bends towards lifeways dictated by the seasons of the boreal borderlands.
