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.

And Should the World Tree be Withered…
As without so within, the ancients said.  In the West we’ve lived long enough – too long – apart from all that grants us our life. Wish and hope as we will, consequence must now be our truer companion. This is a day for grief and wonder, and some prescription scribbled in the sand for what a withered world might now ask of us.  The Meaning of Death (a short film by Ian MacKenzie)
Early bird fee GBP70 when paid in full by March 7, otherwise GBP90 (includes Griefwalker film screening)
Pre-registration strongly recommended, pay by cash or cheque.
Location: Sharpham Meadows Natural Burial Ground :
