standout positive events in each participant's life through the use
of group sharing and assisted short writings.
After the 16 workshop sessions, each participant has her tangible
heirloom remembrance in the form of a notebook of her own anecdotes
and photos. She also has her own chapter in the group's section on
the Legacy Workshops web page.
Both can be expanded later by the participant with her children,
grandchildren or other family and friends. But first and foremost,
her Legacy Workshop heirloom notebook is available for future
enjoyment by the participant herself.
