Die Wise  A Manifesto for Sanity and Soul, is Stephen Jenkinson's new book about grief, and dying, and the great love of life. Published by North Atlantic Books. (March 2015) Stephen is also the subject of the feature length documentary film Griefwalker (National Film Board of Canada, 2008), a lyrical, poetic portrait of his work with dying people.

Die Wise teaches the skills of dying, skills that have to be learned in the course of living deeply and well. Not a seven step coping strategy, not an out-clause for trauma or sorrow, Die Wise is for everyone who, hell or high water, is not going to pull off eternity after all. Dying is not the end of wisdom and wisdom not exhausted by dying. Dying could be and must be the fullest expression and incarnation of what you've learned by living. It's a moral obligation to die well. If you love somebody, if you care about the world that's to come after you, if you want somebody to be spared the lunacy of what you've seen, you've got to die wise. This evening begins to imagine a way of doing so.
