Facilitators For This Contemplatively Rich Experience:

Mary Johnson R.N.(Retired), ECPC, PCC
"As I am making my way through my Third Act, I am seeing and experiencing a coming together of all that's happened in my life so far. This time is most liberating though not necessarily easy. My abiding interest in the Third Act is that this is a time for integrating the whole of our lives and an opportunity to reconnect to who we deeply are. My desire is to share what I am learning and to help other Third Act women to rediscover themselves!" Contact: )

Kathleen Johnston, Career Strategist, PHEc, MA. CCC PCC
"Completing a master's degree just as I entered Life's Third Act provided me with the opportunity to launch a business that fits my Soul's calling and life vision: to support, motivate and inspire women to live to their full potential. Without question, the lived experience of Act I and II in my life provided the impetus for this significant transition. I am deeply grateful to be healthy and well immersed into my Third Act and to be experiencing a sense of freedom and joy that I never could have imagined possible." Contact:

Tap Into Your Inner Coach (free offering)

A good question can stop you in your tracks. In that moment, you come off “Auto-Pilot” and exciting possibilities present themselves. If you’re really bold you might just step into one of the ideas and follow your inner coach.

When you sign up 2 questions a week will pop into your mail box. This is a year long (free) program to support your growth.

You don’t have to do anything more than look and consider. Some questions will resonate more than others.

Should you wish to do more, you might take the question into a reflective time, journal what comes you, talk it over with a good friend. If you wish to share what the question brought up for you then simply reply to the e-mail. My fondest wish is that one of these questions changes the course of your life.

Have fun! Mary
