Stephen Jenkinson is the subject of Griefwalker, a National Film Board of Canada film, directed by Tim Wilson (2008). video trailer
Griefwalker is a lyrical, poetic portrait of Stephen’s work with dying people. 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. ‘Griefwalker’ (not yet the version with German subtitles) film can be downloaded here
Die Wise A Manifesto for Sanity and Soul is Stephen’s book about grief, and dying, and the great love of life. (2015 Nautilus Award Winner video link)
Dying well is not a matter of enlightened self-interest or personal preference. Dying well must become an obligation that living people and dying people owe to each other and to those to come.
Stephen Jenkinson’s new book is COME OF AGE: The Case for Elderhood in a Time of Trouble (July 2018) video link
In his landmark provocative style, Stephen Jenkinson makes the case that we must birth a new generation of elders, one poised and willing to be true stewards of the planet and its species.
