What have you received as legacy, and what will you pass on?
In Legacies of the Heart, author Meg Newhouse provides an unconventional compass for discovering your own legacies and answering the legacy questions. She guides us to a more conscious imprinting of our legacy on the memories and values of those we touch and in the material records we leave behind.
In both her professional and personal life, Meg Newhouse has sought to call out “passion and purpose” in her students, coaching clients, and even friends/colleagues.
For the past 20+ years she has worked with people in midlife and beyond to craft fulfilling and contributing lives; her interest and work in legacy evolved naturally over the past several years. In 2002 she founded and co-led the Life Planning Network, a national community of professionals committed to a holistic model for helping people thrive in the second half of life; more recently she has been engaged with the Conscious Elders Network from its early stages. Meg has helped plan five Positive Aging conferences and has written three how-to books, as well as co-edited LPN’s Live Smart After 50.
Meg has many other passions––foremost, her family (including grandchildren) and friends––but also including music (as a serious amateur flutist), public policy, yoga, nature, and all kinds of learning and personal/spiritual growth. She lives in the Boston area with her husband of 47 years.
