• Are you looking for a place to connect with like-minded women over 50 as you consider retirement, experimenting with something new, or considering the “what now” question?

  • Attracted to hearing other women’s experiences and insights ~ and sharing yours ~ to enhance your exploration process?

  • Want to learn of the new possibilities and new models of living/working in your 50s, 60s, and beyond that emerged from Sue’s research with 100 women?

  • Does the idea of creating Possibility Scenariostm for yourself intrigue you?

Join one of our expertly-designed groups or deep-dive retreats created especially for women over 50 who are ready to compose the next phase of their life journey.


Our Groups and Retreats provide supportive, powerful containers within which to reflect on what you’re done with, what’s calling you next, and be cheered on in the presence of like-minded women toward your new vision.

“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.”

As we pioneer new territory in our 50s, 60s and 70s during this time of massive evolutionary change, we need tribes that will hold and affirm us.

“A Call to Further Becoming”: An interactive 5-session workshop on Zoom for women over 50 seeking to live their best lives.

Join a circle of women over 50 in this engaging workshop where you will learn, discuss, and apply the ten Declarations from Sue’s book to your own life.

This workshop takes a deep and intimate dive into subjects immediately pertinent to the lives of women over 50: priorities, what’s calling you, what you’re done with, and how to enact the purpose, relationships, and lifestyle you long for. The good news is, there are new models for what life looks like at this whole new stage for which we are pioneers! Come be inspired, informed, and affirmed about what is not only possible but happening as women lay down new tracks for this active, promising stage! Modeled after Sue’s 5-star rated in-person University of Denver class in early 2020 and its virtual version in Spring 2020, you will be introduced to the 10 themes/Declarations from Sue’s interviews with 100 women, share and learn from each others’ insights and experiences, address what gets in the way, and break into small group discussions to apply how the Declarations apply to your life. You’ll build relationships with the tribe of women in the workshop and take home practices to enact.

Deep Dive Virtual Retreats for Women over 50
  To support your further becoming

We offer Transformational Retreats specifically for women age 50+. Each Retreat supports women addressing the big “what now?” following successful careers or the completion of any life path thus far.

Held virtually in response to coronavirus restrictions, our Retreats support women’s “further becoming,” drawing from the rich promises of Mary Catherine Bateson’s breakthrough discoveries about the new stage of life between 50-70+ and Sue’s subsequent findings interviewing 100 women over 50. Virtual retreats include:

  • Powerful exercises to help you envision the life-path you want to create
  • Group sharing & feedback to tap the wisdom of our collective experience

  • Personal practices that enable listening to your intuition

  • Guidance from Sue about the 10 principles of living happily and purposefully at this stage of life

  • Solo reflection and journaling time

  • “Paired walks” with other Retreat participants

  • Small group coffee chats between virtual group circles

  • Your Possibility Scenarios, shaped from a time-tested process that allow you to think beyond current assumptions

  • 1 year of monthly group check-ins for support, feedback, encouragement
