About the Program

This 6-week Program gives you the time and tools to is reflect on what is important to you so you can make Conscious Choices™ about how you live and how you honor yourself in this life transition.  

Taking the Leap Forward!: Imagining Your Life After Retirement equips you to navigate your transition to retirement with less stress and more joy.  It uniquely addresses the emotion(s) that comes up during transition, as well as, the alignment required to create the life you are imagining– your next, new adventure

  • Get clarity –  You will have time to reflect on what is meaningful to you and how you want to be engaged in more of what you love.  Although this program does not focus on financial planning, the clarity you gain will be invaluable to your discussions with your loved ones and your financial planner.
  • Get equipped – You’ll leave with a vision and resources to support in your transition to retirement and keep you moving forward after the Program completes.  
  • Get connected to yourself and others –  A weekly appointment to focus on yourself and meet other members of your tribe – men and women preparing for transition to retirement or who have already retired.  You are not alone!
  • Get back to joy! – Leverage your power of choice and generate a joyful, joy-filled life now and after retirement.
