Filmed over a twelve year period, Griefwalker shows Jenkinson in teaching sessions with doctors and nurses, in counselling sessions with dying people and their families, and in meditative and often frank exchanges with the film’s director while paddling a birch bark canoe about the origins and consequences of his ideas for how we live and die.

MAKING A VILLAGE: Initiation, The Mid-Wife of Human Being
– A daylong teaching by Stephen Jenkinson
Initiation with the truth and mandatory grace of one’s mortality forefront, is the ages-old proving ground for person making.  What would a culture look like if it didn’t have authentic initiation for its young people?  Well, look around, friends. This is what it looks like.  Initiation coalesces a person’s kinship with humanity, with creation, with the other world.  Well understood, well done and well lived, initiation happens half a dozen times in someone’s life, ever deepening their humanity on the way towards elder-hood. This gathering for young and old teaches the demanding blessing and human making power of initiation, and will make a place for the untutored yearning for initiation that is still current and still possible among us. video clip – click here.
