About The Event
This workshop focuses on how to answer the hard questions and how to have the challenging conversations.
WHAT DO YOU WANT YOUR CHILDREN TO KNOW ABOUT YOUR DECISIONS TO DOWN SIZE?
HOW DO YOU DISCUSS WHO GETS WHAT TREASURES?
DO THEY KNOW YOUR MEDICAL WISHES?
HOW YOU WANT TO DIE AND BE REMEMBERED?
WHAT DO YOU WANT YOUR PARENTS TO KNOW ABOUT YOUR WORRIES?
HOW DO YOU MAKE SURE THEY ARE SAFE?
DO YOU KNOW IF THEIR PAPERS ARE IN ORDER?
DO YOU KNOW WHAT THEY WANT IF THEY GET SICK?
HOW DO YOU ASK WHAT THEY WANT TO DO WITH THEIR HOUSE FULL OF “STUFF”?
I created this workshop because at every workshop I lead - The Introduction to The Last Gift Box, The Stuff, The Obituary - both young (40-50’s) and older (60-70-80-90’s) say the same thing.
We want to have THE conversation with our parents. With our kids. BUT they won’t talk about THIS. (this being planning for life’s challenges, ends, down sizing, moving on.)
We can all support each other as we journey through the minefields of heart held truths.
