Before I went to a Legacy Sharing Workshop, it had been a very long time since I’d thought a lot about my family and the influences they’ve had on me over the years. In an age when we’re constantly being bombarded and distracted, it’s so easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Sometimes we need to schedule time for peaceful contemplation and focus on what brought us to where we are today.
This time for contemplation is one of many of the benefits of participating in a Legacy Sharing Workshop.
As a One Legacy Team Member, I’ve had the joy and privilege of being part of several of the workshops, and each one of them has been a positive and rewarding experience. I’ve enjoyed meeting and getting to know the people who have been in my groups. The settings have been comfortable and relaxing.
With gentle guidance, the conversation has flowed freely – from the opening “ice breakers” to the writing and sharing of the memorable stories that have played such an important role in shaping each of us. As each chapter is revealed, our memory banks become flooded with special moments from the past.
One of the things I’ve noticed the most is how much the generations influence each other. The stories often illustrate how the ties that bind can make us stronger and more connected. The workshops are a wonderful way for families and community groups to READ, SHARE and INSPIRE!
