A legacy letter (also
called an “ethical will”) is a written document that allows you to share your
life lessons, express your values and transmit your blessings to future
generations. A legacy letter is shorter than a memoir, typically just a few
pages. Writing one is a rewarding experience that creates an enduring gift for
family and friends. This four-session online course includes discussion and
brief writing exercises to help you examine your life history, explore your
values and capture important insights. It offers advice, encouragement and a
model structure to help you draft and complete your own legacy letter.
