Your Ethical Legacy

Jone Johnson Lewis, Leader of the Riverdale-Yonkers Society for Ethical Culture, leads an introductory session on writing your Ethical Legacy, a shortened version of what is usually a somewhat longer process.

What messages do you want to send to your descendants, loved ones?  What values have motivated you? What wisdom do you want to pass on? What do you wish for their lives?

This exercise is valuable at any point in your life.  It can help you clarify purpose and deepen your relationships.

This is a one-session event, repeated April 24, May 8, May 22.

Participation is for those who are able to focus on what to pass on to the next generations. We understand that at this time, some may not be prepared to think about end-of-life possibilities.

Participants, especially those who are not members of the Society, are urged to make a financial contribution to help sustain our programming: Giving

Additional sessions or a repeat may be available if there is interest.  Contact Jone if you want to participate later.
