WRITING YOUR ETHICAL WILL
Most of us know that we need a last will and testament to designate beneficiaries of our material possessions. Few of us, however, realize that we have something else to give to our loved ones.
There is an ancient practice in Judaism of bequeathing our non-material assets–those nuggets of hard won wisdom–to future generations. The intention is not to write deathless prose, but rather to offer an instructive account of the ideals and hopes closest to their hearts. Perhaps you’ve written one already as a letter to your children and grandchildren. You may want to write something that you’d like read while you live or after your death.
One of the great benefits of writing a spiritual will is to help you know what you most value. It’s a great opportunity to tell your family stories and to get to know you better.
This six week workshop will include:
- Examples from the collection of well-know ethical wills: So That Your Values Live On, edited by Jack Riemer,
- Weekly writing sprints and
- Sharing and responding to one another’s work
Please join us with a pen and a notebook and let’s get started!
This course is being led by Rabbi Malka Drucker, author of over twenty books, including her most recent, Embracing Wisdom: Soaring in the Second Half of Life (with Rabbi Nadya Gross), a spiritual director and Vatika/Sage-ing® Mentor. She became a Sageing Mentor to learn and teach the connection between wisdom and time to help in the transmission of revealing the profound purpose of the second half of life.
