Nights of Grief and Mystery

An improbable, ceremonial night of words, wonder and spirit work. These Nights have the mark of our time upon them, and they’re timely, urgent, alert, steeped in mortal mystery.

A Night of Grief & Mystery combines stories and observations by Canadian author/culture activist Stephen Jenkinson, drawn from his decades of work in palliative care, with original songs/sonics by Canadian recording artist Gregory Hoskins.

Stephen is the author of Die Wise: A Manifesto for Sanity and Soul, the award-winning book about grief, and dying, and the great love of life. He is the subject of a National Film Board of Canada documentary, Griefwalker. He brings teachings of the ramshackling kind, about honour and grace under pressure, about how we might learn our darkening times. His new book, Come of Age: The Case for Elderhood in a Time of Trouble, wonders about elderhood in an age of age-intolerance, and about the withering of the World Tree.
