Now free from social expectations and family obligations, with a longer life expectancy and better health than previous generations, you have the opportunity to turn your dreams into realities and to present a new you. Consider anew the options that might have seemed impractical before as you prioritize how to spend the next phase of your life. Redefine what it means to get older as you cultivate the wisdom of experience, an appreciation of who you are, and the pure joy of being present.

This workshop is practical and experiential, providing tools, guidance, and encouragement throughout. Re-invent your future among a supportive group of women working together to create a life purposefully chosen.

“I attended the 3rd Act retreat last October and it was a wonderful experience. Now that I am ready to take a deep dive into what my 3rd Act might look like, I was inspired and supported to make it a reality. Loved the facilitation, the other women, and the location. Win Win Win!” ~ Cynthia Riggs
