At one time or another, most of us have asked ourselves these questions: What life lessons have I learned? What do I want to pass along? What do I hope people will remember about me? What gives my life meaning? Together we will explore the answers to these questions and more.
By the end of these two interactive sessions, the participants will understand the value of putting their precious legacies into an ethical will. Merle R. Saferstein will give practical, hands-on ideas on how to write an ethical will, the process for doing this work, and the value of doing so. She will help the participants understand that how we live our lives and the lessons we impart become our legacy.
The first session will offer an introspective look into living a life that matters and translating that into the writing of an ethical will. The second session will be a step-by-step guide to creating an ethical will.
