Life Review and Legacy workshop | Treading Above Water
This program is offered virtually and is open to anyone who has been impacted by cancer. Membership is not required to participate.
Gilda’s Club Greater Toronto invites you to join us for our new education series, Treading Above Water. Each week throughout the month of March we will provide virtual educational opportunities to learn from subject matter experts about the difficult topic of dying and death.
Treading Above Water is an opportunity to learn how to process difficult information and plan the best options for you or your loved ones during a period of time when life’s waters are calm so that you will be able to keep your head above water when life becomes more turbulent and the water gets deep.
Life Review and Legacy Workshop: For those of us who want to pass on our values, stories, and life lessons to future generations, Life Review and legacy work is incredibly important. It supports us as we come to terms with mortality, and can provide a sense of completion to one’s life. In this workshop, you will learn to understand and discuss the importance of life review and legacy work.
