Moving Through Transition for Women

Women’s Issues

Mid-life for women is a time of change and flux: experiences vary, of course, but often the physical aging process and changes in family life, career, and marital status can influence a renewed drive for meaning, grief for the loss of youth, an enlivening sense of empowerment, a redefining of identity, and a recalibration of how to be. This process is challenging, sometimes painful, and yet is a transformational opportunity to set the waves in motion for the second half of life. The purpose of this women’s group is to share our experiences of the process, to normalize what feels strange, to celebrate insights, and learn from each other. We will explore the stages of transition, reactions to change, and identify values, all to support taking the steps ahead with intention. The group is limited to 8 women, and will meet weekly, for 8 weeks. The group starts on April 9th.
