PCS 714 Crafting a Sacred Legacy: Curating Your Life's Journey

October 28-December 16, 2022





The autumn season of life's journey can be imagined as an overture to the physical, emotional and spiritual changes that accompany aging. 

This course offers sacred practices to encourage growing older with grace while deepening your relationship with God. The invitation is to polish your soul and enter into your wisdom years with grace, peace, clarity and sacred awareness. 

Through a series of experiential contemplations and practices, you will reflect, release, accept and embrace the essence of your life's journey. Crafting a sacred legacy is a prayerful and creative process, leading to the full celebration of life as an elder.

Accepting


You're invited to take a loving look in the mirror with acceptance for the physical changes that come with life's journey.



Reflecting


The creation of your life's timeline, decade by decade, provides a reference tool for curating and crafting your sacred legacy.



Gathering


With sacred intention, you'll revisit the photos, letters, and souvenirs you've gathered through the years. Journal harvesting will also be explored. Your choices will become stepping stones for your legacy's curation.





Curating


While referring to your decades' timeline and your gatherings, you will choose a box, basket and/or binder to contain the curation of your sacred legacy.




Releasing


Identify your material essence and release the tangible and intangible things that no longer serve you. Discern which belongings that you're ready to pass along to others.



Reconnecting


What did you enjoy making, doing, and imagining as a child? The invitation is to reconnect with your imaginative and playful child-self.



Preparing


Your sacred legacy includes preparing for the life to come. How and to whom will you express your final wishes? Contemplate your preparation for the great adventure of eternal life as you grow ever closer to God, in the spirit of Memento Mori.





Embracing


Spiritual and creative practices will be explored to enrich daily life. The crafting of your sacred legacy is an ongoing practice and process. When the elder years are embraced through the lens of sacred legacy and intentional living, transformation is possible.
