Joanne Turnbull formed Your Write Mind, P.A., in 2012, with a mission to create safe spaces so that all writers—regardless of experience—can access their unique creative voice. In 2013, Joanne was trained as a Life Legacy facilitator, and was honored with the Linda and Joel Abromson Award, sponsored by the Jewish Community Alliance. Joanne used the award to develop a pilot project of legacy writing. The success of that project led to Harvesting Our Wisdom, a program that helps people create intentional legacies. It is an honor to help people explore their heritage, recalling important people and situations, and examine their values.
Joanne is a lifelong writer who is trained as a clinical social worker and psychologist. She has a strong background in mental health and family of origin work, and is a published, award-winning writer. Joanne offers ongoing legacy writing groups and coaching, creative writing groups, as well as editing and writing consultation. She serves on the Patient Advisory Committee for Maine Medical Center and the Sage-ing International membership committee. Joanne is committed to bringing intentional legacy writing to underserved populations.
After a number of years, Rachael renewed her commitment in 2015 to train and certify legacy facilitators. Training to increase the guild of North American Certified Facilitators occurs twice yearly, spring and fall, via interactive webinar. For more information and an application, contact LifeLegacies1@gmail.com
You may join a multitude of people using all published legacy materials (including information on this website) to share the purpose and practice of legacy writing with others without certification training.
Refer to the index in Your Legacy Matters, Women’s Lives, Women’s Legacies and The Legacy Workbook for the Busy Woman to find writing ideas, reflections, and writing exercises for the populations you choose to serve.
Rachael consults with legacy facilitators worldwide to mentor and support their work with people with diverse needs and interests. Contact her for more information and to schedule appointments: LifeLegacies1@gmail.com
