What a journey it’s been...

You’ve celebrated many successes — and you’ve learned from your #Fails...

Your relationships have brought joy and pain (naturally), stretching your capacity to love and be loved. And if you’ve raised a family, you’ve likely juggled those responsibilities too,  even while advancing in your professional life and finding time for spiritual growth.    

All of these experiences have made you the woman you are today: Complex and wise (take a deep breath, here)... And now you’re ready for your “next act.”  

You’re ready to create a fulfilling next phase of your life that embraces ALL of who you are...

Yet, you may sense that what worked for you in your 20’s, 30’s and 40s — as a daughter, wife, mother, friend and career woman — won’t bring you the clarity and sense of fulfillment you’re seeking in your 50s, 60s and beyond.  

You likely have conflicting desires and dreams, internal complexities that cloud your vision — as well as cultural expectations you’ve internalized and that are difficult to recognize... and let go of.  

This is the time of life many women are called to become “wisely selfish," says leading transformation teacher and author Sarah Marshank, inviting us to embrace this new definition of selfish, which is actually about deep self-care and deep self-knowledge.  

In this 6-minute video, Sarah Marshank shares how you can create the next phase of your life, by building a relationship with your “many selves….”
