Program Description

All human beings want to feel that their lives have mattered, that their existence leaves a positive imprint on the lives of their family and others they have touched. In this workshop, you will define and articulate your legacy through the ancient tradition of writing an ethical will, which will open up a rich, meaningful dialogue between you and those you love.

Through a series of personal assessments, exercises, journaling, and facilitated conversations, you will explore:

  • What values, experiences, and stories are important to you
  • How your most challenging experiences have shaped your life
  • What choices you want to make as an individual or as part of a couple, given what you propose to say to your children, grandchildren, and other loved ones
  • Tools to facilitate memorable conversations with your family.

This weekend you will open doors to vulnerability, courage, and authenticity. You will experience the profound value of learning to ask questions with genuine curiosity instead of defaulting to typical conversational practices of advocating and persuading.

You deserve to reflect on what life has taught you, and to be intentional about the legacy you leave to the not-yet born children of your children’s children, who will thank you for embarking on this journey.

Why Attend?

  • Create an ethical will of inspiration, life lessons, and values—for your children and future generations—that comes from your heart and years of life experience.

  • Deepen your relationship with those you love by learning how to have meaningful, open conversations about life’s most significant treasures.

  • Give yourself much-deserved time and space to reflect on your life and experiment with how put your legacy into words.
