Come of Age with Author Activist Stephen Jenkinson
Author activist Stephen Jenkinson presents an intimate daylong immersion -- Come of Age.

Join us for a time devoted to grief and wonder, and some prescription scribbled in the sand for what a withered world might now ask of younger folk and of the older folk among us who love them.

Imagine a future that replaces retirement with esteemed elderhood, where young people receive recognition of their worth and purpose, and see living examples of enduring discernment and courage for the hard and often empty times that are upon us all. Stephen Jenkinson believes the esteem of parents and friends can only go so far: Elders must bring the rest. Our work is to sort out what being human should be in such a time.

Stephen Jenkinson, MTS, MSW is a spiritual activist, author, ceremonialist and farmer. Stephen teaches internationally and is the creator and principal instructor of the Orphan Wisdom School, founded in 2010. With Masters degrees from Harvard University (Theology) and the University of Toronto (Social Work), he is the author of several books including the award-winning Die Wise: A Manifesto for Sanity and Soul. Stephen is the subject of the National Film Board of Canada feature length film documentary, Griefwalker. This event will be the Banyen launch of his new book Come of Age: The Case for Elderhood in a Time of Trouble. www.orphanwisdom.com
