The Box of Life Project

Live a life grounded in purpose

Through The Box of Life Project and the forthcoming book, Orit will coach you to curate meaning in your life by preserving the memories and physical objects you hold dear.

Along with these items, you will capture the stories that make them a unique part of your life.

Honoring your treasured memories will enable you to live a life grounded in purpose each day and preserve a legacy for future generations.

Preserve Memories for a Purpose-filled Life and Legacy

Most of us are surrounded by the stuff of legends — our stuff and our personal legends.

These might include:

  • A movie ticket stub from the first date with your partner 25 years ago.
  • The crumpled $1 bill from a lemonade stand that launched your passion for entrepreneurship.
  • The worn recipe card that still smells of your mother’s favorite holiday recipe.

For so many families, personal stories and legacies are lost forever. Even if artifacts are preserved, they lose that sacred and special context if the stories accompanying them are not shared.

Why Create a Box of Life?

There is value for every person in creating a Box of Lifea curated series of remembrances that encompass the richness of our lives. A Box of Life contains select items that reveal a life story — the highs, the lows, the pivotal moments, the essential relationships and more.

As a certified coach, Orit has mastered the art of asking questions and listening for meaning. This approach to active listening is key to connecting with people through the stories they share. She works with those curating their Box of Life to answer four fundamental questions:

  1. Who am I?
  2. How am I living my life?
  3. What’s most important to me?
  4. How do I want to be remembered by generations to come?
