This is a 5 week intensive course for people who want to flourish in the third stage of their life.  These are women and men in some stage of the retirement transition or beyond who felt successful, valued and confident at work, but who now feel disheartened, stalled or unsure of their next steps. In ‘Finding Joy in Retirement and Beyond’ they will design a plan based on what matters most to them that they can confidently follow to create the fulfilling life they want, have worked so hard for, and deserve.

The best life they can have for themselves for the rest of their lives – a joyful, meaningful, purposeful, fulfilling life – and who are ready and willing to do what it takes to create that for themselves.

This program is for people who:

~ Are aware that what once was satisfying no longer has meaning;

~ Sometimes wonder why they should bother getting out of bed in the morning;

~ Feel unproductive and undervalued;

~ Are socially isolated and unsure of who they are now, without a job title;

~ Are ready and eager to do what it takes to create a more satisfying life for themselves.


During this program:

  • You’ll bring yourself up to date with your many resources, with what interests you, delights you, your commitments, what you deeply value – so that you can create the rest of your life based on what truly matters to you.
  • You’ll be given foundational practices that will support your mental, physical and spiritual health and vitality so that you have sustained energy to create what you want for yourself.
  • You’ll be encouraged to explore your options, create possibilities and design your path forward based on your unique inner compass.
