Stephen Jenkinson’s book Die Wise is for everyone who is not going to pull off eternity after all. It places death at the center of the page and asks us to understand that dying must be the fullest expression and incarnation of what we’ve learned by living - to behold it in all its painful beauty. He talks of dying well as a moral, political, and spiritual obligation that each person owes their ancestors and their heirs, and describes the North American death trade as death phobic and grief illiterate, able only to deliver on the demand to live, a deep-running culturally-derived adversary rather than a companion with death.
Imagine the opportunity to transform your own view of death, diminish your fears and re-frame your relationship to living and dying.
For hundreds of thousands of years, human beings worked through trauma communally through ritual practices.
