"I always thought the important thing in life was to be loved and admired. Now I realize what matters most is to be known and remembered for all that I have loved."

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.
