A Message From Our Founder Jean

Hi, my name is Jean Francis. Last Wishes Workshops were inspired as a result of having attended two inspiring 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 have been a part of the funeral industry for thirty years and 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 compromising quality or ethics.

Affirmations, The Power Of Words

Affirmations can be very powerful, here is why. The use of words to confirm; to assert as truth; positive declarations are what we call affirmations. Combining the energy of thought and intent, the spoken word sets affirmations in motion by action. You have probably heard the phrase “thoughts are things”, and so they are. Thoughts create and even more power is given to our thoughts when they are released from us through speech. Speaking our thoughts gives them life outside of us. They carry our intent with them, they are activated and energised.
