You know those times you listen to a voice, a talk, a something that when it’s over you feel changed? That’s how I felt the first time I listened to Stephen Jenkinson talk.
Even more so after interviewing him.
I could sit next to him around a fire and listen forever. In the lack of many elders in my life who I go to with my questions, in many ways here is a man who leads the way.
In this episode we talk about
*elderhood and the disappearance of elders in our society
*wisdom and what it is to be wise
*his new book ‘Come of Age’.
*his work with people facing death
His way of presenting these important themes is not full of fear, it is full of life and hope.
Enjoy his words.
