My work in Interfaith Chaplaincy and Elder-Care has cultivated in me a passion in creating dignified experiences and sacred spaces for those at the end of life. Legacy Design is the work of assisting people in creating by video, audio, or written messages for their family and loved ones for after their death. Rooted in the theories of Dignity Therapy, Living Wills, and 5 Wishes, my process with someone who wants to leave behind a message to their loved ones is one that unfolds over several sessions. I then go and edit the material, video, audio or written and meet again with the client at least twice for review and revisions. The final product is presented in a beautiful box along with scripted or typed instructions that the client wants left for their family.
Legacy Design can be a beautiful way to pass on messages, memories, and values to the next generation. If you are interested in the process of Legacy Design, please contact me for an initial consultation. Examples of my video, audio and written work can be found in my portfolio. My services are supported by donations, so please spend some time discerning what might work for your. I can give suggested donation amounts for my services if you would like them.
Please note: This work is not legal in nature and does not include the development of wills, health care proxies or Medical Orders for Life Sustaining Treatment. Guidance in these areas is available through referrals to appropriate resources.
Legacy Design can also be part of a end of life ritual or process for preparing for death. I do offer more extensive End of Life Midwifery and Vigils. More information about these can be found on my page about Transition Rituals and Care.
