Thank you for your interest in our workshop.  It’s for motivated women who want to create a Third Act that fulfills their dreams and realizes their potential.  We want to help you on your journey.

Workshop Content

happy_circleIn Day One of the workshop you will work with other women, learn about their lives and share your own.  You will also take a look at your life right now, identify parts you want to change and why, then create the vision for your future.  By the end of Day One you will know what you want to work on and why it is important to you.

Day Two focuses on taking action and maximizing your success.  First, you will define what you need in order to get ready for the trip.  For example, you may decide to learn new skills, build a strong support group or change your lifestyle.  We will begin the coaching process, illustrating how it will support your staying on track.  You will learn how to set up achievable goals and monitor your progress along the way.  A critical part of the way we work is through follow-up group coaching sessions after the workshop.

Follow-up Group Coaching

After the workshop, there will be weekly sessions of approximately one hour when you can celebrate success, get help from your peers and support others. These sessions will be by teleconference with dial-in numbers from wherever you are. Workshop facilitators will also be available by email, whenever you need help.

Participant Comments About the Workshop

The most valuable part for me was to be completely honest with such an amazing group of women and to come away with purposeful goals for the future.

At our final meeting it was so fun to hear about everyone’s progress and projects and how goals were reached and some changed and some new ideas.  All of this activity thanks to the stellar leadership of you and Mary.  The two of you are dynamite together.

The sequential movement of the two days was interesting and brought to light ideas and feelings I really had not thought about before.  I appreciated discovering aspects of my life that could use some change and the program gently led me there.

We came together as strangers, but within a few hours we were opening up, sharing personal issues and helping one another to make positive changes.

The printed materials we used were excellent and well organized. I also enjoyed the times we spent one-on-one with a fellow participant using the workbook to help us with the task we had been given to complete.

The time away from life’s tasks to concentrate on setting goals for a positive future was very important.  The single most meaningful activity for me was the meditation period when we were guided through a conversation with ourselves about the future.
