Accepting Death And "Dying Wise"


We get pretty freaked out by death in our culture. 

Stephen Jenkinson calls this the "wretched anxiety" about the end of life, an anxiety he works to lessen in his work. 

Jenkinson speaks and teaches ways to live and die better, and wrote a book called Die Wise.

He visits both Eugene and Ashland this week, and shares his thoughts about the end of life--and all that precedes it--on The Exchange.
