Description

The Case for Elderhood in a Time of Trouble
"Getting older is inevitable, becoming an elder is a skill. " Stephen Jenkinson, MTS, MSW

“Elders are a sentinel species for humanness, and like other forms of life in our corner of the world they’ve mysteriously gone missing. Young people are, often involuntarily, looking for them, and they can’t find them. How about this: old people are looking for them too. ..Stephen is making the case for elderhood, not for easy agedness mostly by wondering what happened. Because something happened. Something happened to ancestors and elders and honour.There’s work to be done, and there’s an old wisdom to be learned where there used to be the wisdom of old.”
