The Beginning of Ending by Stephen Jenkinson – SOLD OUT


June 9, 2024 - June 12, 2024

JUNE 9-12th, 2024  |   LLANRHIAN, WALES – UK.  |    LIVE, IN-PERSON EVENT (SOLD OUT)

Might you be interested in joining Stephen Jenkinson & Dr Martin Shaw in Totnes – June 14th. Event details here.

A certain reversal of fortune has found me, wrenched my plans for myself out of symmetry. It’s medical, with a kite’s tail of consequence. I’d had a feeling for a while, which is why whenever any of you who I met on the Nights of Grief and Mystery asked about the school I tended to equivocate about the thing. I didn’t know if I’d be able to follow through on the commitment.

But I don’t feel entirely done, and so we’ll open the doors of Ty Sanctiadd at Trefacwn, Llanrhian, Wales, UK.

To know the moment that you’re in, and mobilize accordingly: that’s where grace and style and eloquence are born.
Once there, though, it’s work to find where desperation gives way to urgency, urgency to purpose, and purpose to limit.
Karaoke’s unbecoming when elegance and elegies are called for.
There’s wrangling now to be done.
Not much of an invitation, I’ll grant you. But there it is.
Let’s find out what we’ve got, what we really know.

Stephen Jenkinson
Founder of Orphan Wisdom School
