Griefwalker screening in San Luis Obispo, CA

March 15, 2015 @ 4:00 pm - 6:30 pm

Sunday, March 15th, 2015  (4pm matinee followed by a talk/book signing by Stephen Jenkinson)
Griefwalker is a National Film Board of Canada feature documentary film. It 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. read more

DIE WISE – It’s a teaching for everyone who, hell or high water, is not going to pull off eternity, after all. Dying is not the end of wisdom and wisdom is not exhausted by dying. Dying could be and must be the fullest expression and incarnation of what you’ve learned. It’s a moral obligation to die well. If you love somebody, if you care about the world that’s to come after you, and if you want  somebody to be spared the lunacy of what you’ve seen – you’ve got to die wise. This teaching begins to imagine a way of doing so.
