Public Film Screening & Talk
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.

Dying Wise: 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 day to practice something of the crazed wisdom and radical etiquette of the ending of days, which is our human birthright.
