Our Time

Our Time

60 & Beyond and Living Life to the Fullest
June 1 – August 31, 2019

Contrary to the cultural scripts that say
women are old and useless and in the way – diminished
versions of their former selves – in reality older women
are the happiest demographic in the country.
~ Mary Pipher

 

You may not be 60 or even close. However we hear from many women who fear the thought of becoming 60 or 70 . . . or even 50 . . . and becoming irrelevant, overlooked and dismissed.

In truth it is now OUR TIME!

We have good news . . . no, GREAT news . . . research from the University of California, San Diego, along with census data from the United Kingdom, suggest not only that do people become happier as they age but that the happiest people are women aged 65-79.

And if you need further proof:  Mary Pipher’s new book, Women Rowing North: Navigating Life’s Currents and Flourishing as We Age, which spent weeks on the top of the New York Times bestseller list, is inspiring and empowering women of all ages to embrace and celebrate themselves . . . to realize that age is only a number and aging brings more wisdom, gratitude and JOY!

Let’s celebrate together!

If you can see 60 on the horizon . . . or you’re already in your 60’s, 70’s or 80’s, it is definitely not too late to live an empowered, joyful life!  Join me and a community of women who are interested in going into 60 and Beyond wide awake, fully engaged, and living life to the fullest.

 

 

YOU WILL:

LEARN to celebrate your beautiful, vibrant self . . . no matter your age.

UNDERSTAND that your path has been fundamental to creating the amazing woman you are today. 

CONNECT deeply with the truth of who you are and begin to chart a course forward that will be meaningfully, wildly and joyfully your own.

REVEL in the truth that your experience and wisdom are needed more than ever in today’s world.

KNOW how you can empower and engage the women and girls in your life . . . and how badly it is needed.

TRULY know that you are WAY more than your age . . . that you are a women living full and truthfully and joyfully from who you are . . . and what could be better?
