Retreat~Workshop: The Spirit of Philanthropy

Through attending the “Discover My Values” workshop, guests will enjoy exploring the personal values which give meaning and purpose to their life. Upon completion of the session, attendees will be able to effectively document, share and record one or two of their core philanthropic and/or spiritual values through storytelling.

Come join Professional Personal Historian and Ethical Will Workshop Leader April Bell, who will help you guide your community in effectively capturing and sharing their invaluable family stories for posterity. By attending this multimedia and interactive retreat-like experience, participants will:

Complete exercises designed to explore the values which give meaning and purpose to their life

Learn how one may achieve deeper connections along with stronger family and community bonds through the capture and curation of family stories

Be able to effectively document, share and record one or two core philanthropic and/or spiritual values through storytelling

Have the chance to tell a story or two in front of the group illustrating their own core values (optional)

"To be rooted is perhaps the most important and least recognized need of the human soul. To be able to give, one has to possess, and we possess no other life, no other living sap, than the treasures stored up from the past and digested, assimilated and created afresh by us.” ~Simone Weil

Don’t miss this fun and deeply enriching opportunity to help your community discover their personal values and philosophies while learning how to curate their family’s wisdom and legacy stories. Your community will be grateful you took the time to give them this irreplaceable gift to be shared today and for generations to come.

Family Legacy Storytelling: I'm interested!

  • Venue is your home, church or conference area. We need a comfortable space where I show a slide deck presentation and accompanying videos. We need to allow for people to share in pairs and groups, plus write in their provided workbooks.
