Restoring human dignity

Start storytelling conversations using simple, caring methods to restore human dignity in the people we care for and love

Why is it important to help people tell their stories?

We show we care by listening to what others have to say. By recording a person's story, we immortalize forever how special they are to us and give them control over their own legacy.

A Grief story

Legacy has been part of my story since 2015 when I figured out I needed to work through my grief and find a way to share my story in a constructive and simple way. Before that, I reveled in the opportunity to engage people in conversation and help them tell their stories since childhood. 

Today you can find Legacy and the storytelling methods I teach being used around the globe to help the people we care for tell their stories.
