Course Description

This three session course will focus on defining the values that provide a sense of purpose in your life and how to envision the legacy you wish to leave for the future.

This course builds on earlier courses on “journeys of hope” and “resiliency," but there are no prerequisites and the readings (to be distributed in class) will be new.

The course will move from individual perspectives on dignity, to interpersonal connections that provide purpose and conclude with building sustainable community.
