Description

NIGHT OF GRIEF AND MYSTERY :: concert and teachings for turbulent times (Bristol / UK tour 2017)

Stephen Jenkinson : Gregory Hoskins

Picture it : A storyteller. A band. An evening of mongrel sorrow,dappled by magic and wonder, fringed with regard for the gift of the tongue,harkening and horatory and bardic and greying, steeped in mortal mystery, uprooted from its uncertain home in North America. What would you call such a thing?

Stephen is a Harvard Educated Theologian, Culture Activist, founder of The Orphan Wisdom School, author of Die Wise A Manifesto for Sanity and Soul, and subject of a National Film Board of Canada documentary, Griefwalker. Die Wise, is Stephen’s award-winning book about grief, and dying, and the great love of life.

He brings teachings of the ramshackling kind, about honour and grace under pressure, about elderhood in an age of age-intolerance, about the withering World Tree, about how we might learn our darkening times. This will be a concert of sorts, because he has Gregory Hoskins to lend his music and his road-tested grace to the cause. This evening will be part poetry, part lamentation, part book reading, part ribaldry, part lifting the mortal veil and learning the mysteries there; that’s what’s in store.
