A Message from our Chairwoman
& Creative Director
Hi, my name is Jean Francis. Last Wishes Workshops were inspired as a result of having attended two funerals many years ago. Both occasions celebrated the lives of the elderly gentlemen who had arranged their own departures prior to need. I emerged feeling euphoric recognising for the first time the healing powers of a good funeral.
My mission is to share this life-changing experience with the world. I published my first book Time to Go in 2004, encouraging and daring people to be different; veering away from black and depressing funerals but honouring loss and grief in a deeply personal way.
Last Wishes is my living legacy and I am honoured and delighted to bring it to you here. Since then, several books and many Last Wishes Workshops later people and groups are having conversations about and making end of life plans without compromise, quality or ethics.
Free Ideas, Inspiration & Help to Build Your Best Life Now
May day, the Green Man, Jack In The Green and ancient traditions. Christianity, Paganism and rebirth.
It’s Dying Matters Week 2021 so let’s look at the new report that came out today about end-of-life matters and the insights it gives into how we can live our best lives now.
Grief can manifest in all sorts of ways and some of these might be surprising. It is important to realise there is no shame and to get help if needed.
Learn how to save hundreds if not thousands of pounds on your funeral and celebration. Make your last wishes clear to your loved ones and get your affairs in order.
Create the Legacy you want to leave behind, without loose ends. Make your own funeral arrangements and create the ceremony you would like, so loved ones can celebrate your life the way you wish.
First published in 2004, this book was one of the first publications that dared people to be different with their funerals; veering away from the traditional, black and morbid norm. Time to Go offers people a myriad of easily adaptable ideas to pre-plan their funeral.
Take a fresh look at life and death. Heal the wounds of grief and honour love as we grow a beautiful flower from the ashes. Transform potential trauma into a legacy of love.
We are running a special launch of this tried, tested and verified course to enable more people to access valuable and life changing information.
