Your compassion and understanding helped me immeasurably. Your exercises and suggestions helped me see
what is important to me and what makes my heart sing. You helped me see that I can still take care of the people
in my life 
and also have a vibrant life of my own too. Thank you, thank you!

If you’ve ever asked yourself, “What are my dreams – or, did I ever have any?” or “What do I really want to do with the rest of my life?” then you are not alone. After a lifetime of being everything to everyone else, there is always a point where we poke our head out of the hole of our sleepwalking life and begin to ask ourselves, “Who am I besides the roles I play?” Or “What do I really want to do with the rest of my life?”Karen Ely, Women's Retreat Facilitator and Author

Often, we’ve been on remote control, living the life of our mothers and grandmothers. Or maybe forging our own path. But there is still a moment when we recognize that we might be more than the roles we’ve been playing. And we often find ourselves unable to move in any direction because we have no idea how to move forward, where to go, what to do, or who to ask.

Because other women’s support, wisdom and guidance have been integral to the healing and personal growth of our founder/director, Karen Ely, she is passionate about supporting other women who are searching for authentic, meaningful lives. Click here for Karen’s full bio.
