Dying wise: A night of Grief and Mystery

  • by Volunteer Hub
  • February 6, 2017

For years Harvard Educated Culture Activist, Stephen Jenkinson headed the counseling team of Canada’s largest home-based palliative care programme. He was assistant professor at a prominent medical school.

His work was the basis for the documentary film Griefwalker and he is author of the book Die Wise: A Manifesto for Sanity and Soul:

“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.”
