Guided Autobiography sessions, provides so much to the participants. Over and over, I hear from those who have taken the course, about how much they learned about themselves, and how much enjoyment they got out of sharing their stories with others in the class. Over a period of about 6-8 weeks, participants share something each week, from an assigned theme in their life. While the theme may be the same, the stories are as varied as the participants, and seem to go in many directions.
Participants may come in as strangers, but by the end of the session, leave with a sense of community, a sense of self, and stories about one’s life, that can be passed on to loved ones, or used as the beginning of one’s memoir or autobiography.
Guided Autobiography was started by James Birren a noted gerontologist, back in the 1990’s. It has become quite a movement, used by all ages and in all parts of the world. Start your own group, or become part of a session that I will provide throughout the year.
One recent participant said “Hurray for Guided Autobiography, it has provided me with guidance as I muse through the next decade of my life.” Another said,” I hope my children and grandchildren have as much fun reading my stories, as I had writing them down”.
I hope to see you soon, let’s have a GAB fest.
Creating Your Legacy Plan
You want to positively impact the lives of your loved ones and find more purpose and meaning for yourself. Legacy Writing and Planning helps you fulfill both desires. Your legacy is more than your tangible assets.
A great Legacy Plan expresses your intangible wealth, your vision, traditions, wisdom, values, stories and love.
My mission is to provide you with the tools to share your intangible wealth with the people who matter to you now and for the generations to come. I use guided writing, interviews and coaching to help you capture and share your vision and your precious traditions, wisdom, values, stories and love. Crafting your legacy is a fun and joyful process.
A customized Legacy Plan can also inform estate and financial planning and make those plans work in alignment with your vision—allowing you to preserve the joy and meaning you have created. It becomes an intentional journey. I want you to feel confident that you have shared all of your story, and have been able to have meaningful intergenerational conversations for the present and for the future.
