#2 Wisdom in Death and Dying

By Stephen Jenkinson


Sounds of SAND presents an in-depth and provocative conversation from Science and Nonduality’s “Death and Dying” online summit. A long-time friend of SAND Stephen Jenkinson offers a frank dialog with SAND co-founders Zaya and Maurizio Benazzo. This conversation took place during the first months of COVID which you’ll hear Stephen talk about as “the plague” they also touch upon:

  • the meaning of death and dying in a death-phobic culture
  • the idea of death as a god
  • the differences between death culture in North America and Europe and other cultures
  • Stephen’s perspectives on Euthanasia.
  • plus some original music from Stephen and Gregory Hoskins at the end of the episode!

He's the founder of the Orphan Wisdom School in Tramore, Canada, and the author of four books, including Die Wise: A Manifesto for Sanity and Soul, the award-winning book about grief and dying and the great love of life. And stick around until the end of the podcast to hear a spoken word musical collaboration from Stephen and Gregory Hoskins from their Nights of Grief and Mystery project.
