Die Wise – A Manifesto for Sanity and Soul, is Stephen Jenkinson’s new book about grief, and dying, and the great love of life. Published by North Atlantic Books (March 2015).
For those of us who will, come what may, fail to live forever, what instruction does our pursuit of ‘be all you can be’ whisper as we die? It whispers, ‘No worries. There’s no real death’. But there is. This is a time to practice something of the crazed wisdom and radical etiquette of the ending of days, which is our human birthright.

The Orphan Wisdom School is for anyone with a desire to be useful to those who will inherit an endangered and often dangerous world. It is for those who have an instinct and a desire to be an ancestor worthy of being claimed. It is for those wishing to learn something of the skills of grace in a graceless time, of mentorship and fierce and exemplary compassion. It is for elders in training.
