• Are you looking for a place to connect with like-minded women over 50 as you consider the big “what now?” ~ whether retirement, experimenting with something new, or launching a long-desired project?

  • Would you like to learn from other women’s experiences ~ and share yours ~ to expand your perspective, get ideas, gather feedback and encouragement?

  • Do you long for a tribe with whom you can share a deep personal connection over a period of time?

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 lives.


Groups and Retreats provide a powerful place to reflect on what you’re done with, what’s calling you next, and how to move forward with support. All in the presence of like-minded women.

“I have been heard, witnessed, and valued in this women’s group. Sue, you are able to distill in beautiful accurate way, what you hear, what you witness, and what strikes you. It’s surprising how so many groups want to tell you how to fix their problems – but you have showed me another way to witness. I’ve loved all the aspects of this experience.”

Annette Thornton, Associate Professor, Michigan University

“A Call to Further Becoming”: A favorite 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! 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, and break into small groups to discuss how to apply how the Declarations to your life. You’ll build relationships with the tribe of women in the workshop and take home practices to enact.

Retreats for Women over 50
  To help you emerge from the wilderness into your joyous “next now”

I 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.

Group Retreats are held on Zoom and artfully designed to avoid Zoom fatigue! 

NEW! I now offer Personal Retreats in a one-with-one format using the same design in our successful Group Retreats. I’m thrilled to be doing this deep work with women individually.     

In 2020, our Fall Retreat pivoted to a virtual format due to the coronavirus. It was spread over two weeks and worked remarkably well, with trusting and intimate conversations, high engagement, lots of stimulation and variety, and no Zoom fatigue. We took days off, scheduled paired walks, did yoga, and even had an informal coffee room. { Retreat Testimonials 2020 }

In my Group and Personal One-on-One Retreats you will experience:

  • A way out of indecision, stagnation, inertia.
  • Your Personal Timeline exercise to help us identify your gifts, important through-lines in your life, and the consistent blend of activities/relationships/challenges that have delivered aliveness and joy for you that you want to carry into the “next now.” We also identify what no longer serves you. 

  • Identification of what you’re Done With and ready to let go.

  • Sue’s guidance using what she discovered in interviews with 100 women in their 50s, 60s, 70s: helpful prompts to clarify what you want, prompts to help you get there with ease, and tools for a painless and confident way forward. 

  • Introduction to the S-curve framework of growth and change to normalize where you are and apply its wisdom to your “next now.”

  • A powerful introduction to your Possibility ScenariosTM  ~ your invitation to visualize and compose several scenarios that appeal to you based on the work we’ve done to this point.
  • An in-depth review together of your Scenarios. Coaxing and coaching to bring each one alive in your mind’s eye.

  • The crescendo: Your Personal Intentions Map/Plan to to serve as your motivation, guide, and touchstone moving forward. 

  • Our celebration!
  • My support as you put your Plan into play.

My Groups and Retreats are designed to help you step fully in to the next phase of your life.
Newness, joy, and possibilities are within reach at every age.
