"A Call to Further Becoming": An interactive workshop for women based around 10 groundbreaking themes women over 50 are living and loving!
Join a circle of women over 50 in this fun and informative workshop on the wonderfully-promising new ways we’re pioneering this new stage of life!
Based on Sue’s 100 interviews with women and modeled after her sold-out and highly-successful University of Denver class, you’ll hear ways women in their 50s, 60s, 70s and beyond are answering the big question “What now?” …. and redefining friendships, beauty, spiritual fulfillment, and purpose while unabashedly declaring what they’re “done with.” You’ll hear inspiring stories of ways women are living fully into this stage of life — and you’ll break into small group discussions to share your own stories, challenges, and opportunities.
Details coming soon!
We’re so excited to be offering this workshop in Spring 2020!
Monthly Reflections Group on the 10 Themes from Sue's book: 1 theme per month (FREE)
This monthly group will invite you and other women to share your reflections and experiences with each of the themes that emerged from 100 interviews with women over 50. Examples include Tending the Vessel-Body with Love, Experimenting with Firsts, Done With That, and Leaving a Legacy. Stories from women who were interviewed and practices offered by Sue will be part of these circles. Plan to participate in this emerging dialogue about how we as women over age 50 are meeting the unique questions and challenges of this time and laying down new tracks for generations to come!
Timeframe: 1 hour
Number of participants: Unlimited! All are welcome.
Method: By phone. Dial-in provided upon signup.
Dates: To be launched alongside book publication. Stay tuned!
“This group quickly became part of my soul’s DNA. I have been heard, witnessed, and valued which led me to publishing an article, security two books reviews for publication, and taking a leadership role in another book. I’ve also begun to speak up more at meetings. All of this is evidence that I believe I have something important to say now. I facilitated a 5-hour strategic planning session – and I had confidence! Sue, you are able to distill in beautiful accurate way, what you hear, what you witness, and what strikes you. For the first time I feel I have been heard. It’s surprising how so many people and groups want to tell you how to fix their problems – but you and the group have showed me another way to witness. I’ve loved ALL the aspects of this experience.”
