Our personal possessions tell the stories of our lives. Each item nods to who we are and how we might be remembered. They may recall an event from childhood, a well-earned accomplishment, a treasured relationship, generations that came before us.

When we’re faced with downsizing our own personal belongings or sorting through a loved one’s possessions, we’re confronted with a challenge. How do we decide what to keep, what to share, and what to donate? How can we “break up” a lifetime of valued belongings? It’s an overwhelming process, but it can also be very rewarding.

Price: Free. Registration required.

Rachel Kodanaz, author of Finding Peace, One Piece at a Time, leads this workshop on how to manage your and your loved ones’ personal possessions. As a leading voice on the subject of sorting, thinning, and repurposing belongings, she will engage in the how, why, and proven techniques of what to save, what to share with others, and what is best to get rid of. You will learn new approaches to organizing possessions, develop skills to overcome perceived obstacles, and build a timeline aligned to specific end goals.
