Limited Capacity: 20 spots available
As we get older, many of us are interested in gathering stories from our lives and sharing them with our families, especially our children and grandchildren. We want to try and make sense of our lives and create a record describing the events we experienced and how we dealt with our struggles, setbacks, and successes. What are the lessons and values that we want to pass on? What did we find meaningful? What was important to us? What is our legacy?
This interactive workshop is for people who want to create a memoir that values the struggles in their lives, makes sense of them, and explores their meaning. The focus will be practical and designed to help participants make rapid progress. Our presenter, Chris Palmer has written nine books, including three memoirs. His latest book is Finding Meaning and Success: Living a Fulfilled and Productive Life. He is writing a book on death and dying for Rowman & Littlefield, is a hospice volunteer, and runs an aging, death, and dying group for the Bethesda Metro Area Village. Chris is an author, speaker, wildlife filmmaker, conservationist, professor, and grandfather. He holds advanced degrees from London and Harvard.
