"Has fundamentally changed my understanding of legacy." -Fred Mandell, CEO of the Global Institute for the Arts and Leadership
"An unforgettable source of guidance for the legacy work that we each must do..." -Harry R. Moody, Ph.D., Retired Vice President, AARP
What legacies have you received and what will you pass on, to leave the world a little better than you found it? In Legacies of the Heart, Meg Newhouse provides an unconventional compass to discover and shape your legacies. She guides us to a more conscious and heart-centered imprinting of our legacies on the memories and values of those we touch and in the material records we leave behind. While a remarkably rich resource, Legacies is not the typical how-to book. Much of its appeal lies in the illustrative personal stories Newhouse tells, her own as well as those of friends, clients, workshop participants, and people in the media. Through her invitation to reflect on these stories, she takes readers on a journey of transformational importance, not only for one generation but also for the generations that follow.
