The Case for Elderhood
If it were true that life experience automatically translates into wisdom, then we would be the wise-est people the world has ever seen. I look around and I see the most juvenile, untutored and deeply self-indulgent cultures that the world has ever seen.
Prolific visionary and author, Stephen Jenkinson provokes insight into the darkness of the present reality where fulfilling our desires, prolonging life, and endless personal growth contribute to a despair and thirst that can only be quelled by the wisdom that comes from acknowledging and coming to terms with death, the limits of our natural world, and the deep fulfillment that comes from using our lives in service of the future generations who inherit the world we leave behind.
Stephen, is offering Come of Age: The Case for Elderhood in a Troubled Time at Hollyhock August 24-28, 2018.
