Facing Death with Stephen Jenkinson: Wisdom Gym

June 2, 2021
In this episode of the Wisdom Gym, we're joined by Stephen Jenkinson, best known as one of the world's leading commentators on our cultural attitudes to death. The author of 'Die Wise' and 'The Case for Elderhood in Times of Trouble', Jenkinson is also a musician, cultural activist and co-founder of a training school called Orphan Wisdom.
With a live audience of Rebel Wisdom members, he explored what it means to live in a death-phobic culture, how the pandemic has affected our attitudes to dying, and just how fundamental these attitudes are to our perception.
