Write Your Legacy with Sage Cohen
Starts January 15, 2021
We all know our time on this planet is limited. But the pandemic is making us confront our mortality in new ways.
What if this is my last holiday season with my family?
Would my loved ones know my full story?
Will my wisdom and legacy live on?
Maybe you are pondering such questions during this challenging time.
Knowing you’ve prepared for the worst can help you be more present for all the best stuff in life. And leaving your legacy in writing is one way to bring you and your loved ones comfort and peace.
Yet, it’s not easy to distill and share a lifetime of memories. Write Your Legacy will show you how!
In this course, you’ll be led on a treasure hunt through your history. Together we’ll dig up the gold of your past and present, write the truth of your heart, and prepare to share it. So, your important people will have everything they need to carry your torch forward.
“Sage was an excellent teacher. She created a safe environment for sharing personal, tender topics. Her writing prompts were perfect for igniting creative writing. Our group had a bonding chemistry.”
Create your own time capsule!
Starting January 15, 2021, you will spend 30 days creating dozens of mementos that celebrate your life. This collection of writing and other media will document who you are, what you believe, and your most precious memories. You’ll even prepare to share them with your important people. So you can rest easy knowing that you haven’t left your legacy to chance.
