Orphan Wisdom School at Hollyhock: Third Class

Orphan Wisdom - Fearing KnowingCLOSED TO NEW SCHOLARS 

(Oct 24 Stephen is offering a presenter evening with Martin Shaw)
Die Wise – A Manifesto for Sanity and Soul,
is Stephen Jenkinson’s new book about grief, and dying, and the great love of life. Published by North Atlantic Books (March, 2015).
Endorsement by Dr. Martin Shaw, author of Snowy Tower: Parzival and The Wet, Black Branch of Language
“Stephen Jenkinson’s elegant and sorrow-freighted book brings prophetic insight rather than pastoral affirmations. A true story-man, Jenkinson paints image after image on the cave wall of his parchment. Die Wise is a formidable body of work, road-tested in ways most of us hope never to know about. Stay with it, hold the sorrow as the gift it is, savor in small, immense chunks. Every word is an invitation to trade fantasy for imagination. There isn’t a book like it.”

Session 3/4: Contemplate the deep poverties and profound possibilities of our time and re-establish the grief and love soaked ties to life, home and village. This is a two-year project of personal ancestral learning and cultural redemption for those who intend to leave a better day for those to come. It is a school that requires no previous experience with living people, dying people or dead people – though you do have experience with all of them – and no particular employment, religion, educational standard or way of life. It is open to every shape, persuasion, style, language and hue of person with a heart inclined for opening and learning. Each of us deserve the chance to learn something deep, alive, human, urgent and mandatory. This is at the heart of the Orphan Wisdom School. For more information – click here.
