• 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, and/or launching a long-desired project?

  • Would you like to learn from other women’s experiences and insights ~ and share yours ~ to enlarge your pool of ideas and get feedback?

  • Do you long for a tribe with whom you can continue to connect about things that matter 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 powerful containers within which to reflect on what you’re done with, what’s calling you next, and to be supported by me and 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

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.

Deep Dive 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.

Zoom format during coronavirus: In 2020, one Retreat had to be cancelled and our Fall Retreat was successfully held virtually in response to coronavirus restrictions. The Zoom format was spread over two weeks and worked remarkably well! Its design ensured no Zoom fatigue and included days off, “walks” with other participants, yoga, informal coffee chats, and more. { See 2020 Retreat participant testimonials in Praise }

At our Retreats you will experience:

  • A way out of indecision, stagnation, inertia onto the refreshed life-path you create
  • A powerful review of your path to now with feedback from Sue and reflections from the group that identify your gifts, important through-lines in your life, and consistent sparks that have always brought your aliveness and joy 

  • Coaching from Sue that taps the 10 declarations women over 50 have discovered to lead to purposeful, happy lives in their 50s, 60s, 70s

  • Customized writing exercises during the Retreat to accelerate your clarity

  • A freeing discovery of what you’re “done with” (prompted by 7 provocative questions)
  • Paired walks with other Retreat participants reflection

  • Solo time to walk, reflect, journal

  • A powerful Possibility ScenariosTM exercise designed by Sue over 20 years from which you will compose several scenarios that speak to your heart, with Sue’s coaching and group feedback as you share each one at the center of the Retreat circle.

  • Your Path/Plan/Intention map (as spacious or detailed as works for you) to take forward with support

  • A tribe with whom you’ll connect for 12 months for monthly support, feedback, encouragement
