Legacy Workshop
Your Story. Your Legacy.

What is your story, and how do you want to be remembered? Join us for an engaging, interactive workshop in which we will:

• Guide you through a series of reflections to draw out the values and experiences that have defined your life, the wisdom you want to pass on to others, and your hopes for future generations.


• Teach you how to write your legacy story, which is one of the most cherished and meaningful gifts you can leave your family and community.


• Discuss how to blend your legacy story into your end-of-life documents so that the decisions you make reflect your sacred story and spiritual legacy.
