Why Legacy Matters

We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to understand life’s meaning, and to cultivate a legacy that matters.

By nature, every one of us has a unique story. It defines the essence of who we are and what has been important in our lives. It captures all that we have discovered through the relationships and events of our lives, our joys and suffering, our values and beliefs, the life lessons we have learned.

Legacy Matters because there has never been, nor ever will be, another you or me. Only in understanding our story will we find the meaning and purpose for which we are here, in this moment, in this lifetime.

Knowing our purpose can help us make thoughtful choices about how we complete our life and our legacy.

What the Legacy Workshop Can Do for Your Organization

As places of comfort and care, faith-based, healthcare and community organizations are uniquely suited to convening conversations about life’s difficult, but normal, passages. People are stronger in facing challenges when they can talk about what’s important to them and feel supported in the decisions they make.

If your organization provides physical, emotional or spiritual care to individuals of any age, giving your constituents a safe space to have these conversations can encourage healing and growth, and optimize the effectiveness of the care you provide. 

We provide organizations with the exclusive tools and professional support to present the Legacy Workshop in their own communities or workplaces. The Legacy Workshop empowers people of all ages to discover and articulate their life’s meaning.
