MIDLIFE ALCHEMY PROJECT
It's not a crisis, it's an awakening!
"Midlife is not a crisis. Midlife is an unraveling.
By definition, you can’t control or manage an unraveling. You can’t cure the midlife unraveling with control any more than the acquisitions, accomplishments, and alpha-parenting of our thirties cured our deep longing for permission to slow down and be imperfect.
Midlife is when the universe gently places her hands upon your shoulders, pulls you close, and whispers in your ear:
I’m not screwing around. All of this pretending and performing – these coping mechanisms that you’ve developed to protect yourself from feeling inadequate and getting hurt – has to go. Your armor is preventing you from growing into your gifts. I understand that you needed these protections when you were small. I understand that you believed your armor could help you secure all of the things you needed to feel worthy and lovable, but you’re still searching and you’re more lost than ever. Time is growing short. There are unexplored adventures ahead of you. You can’t live the rest of your life worried about what other people think. You were born worthy of love and belonging. Courage and daring are coursing through your veins. You were made to live and love with your whole heart. It’s time to show up and be seen." Brene Brown
In this 6 week online group project we explore being a female at Midlife. Does it feel like a crossroads, an unravelling, or an awakening??!! Does your mojo need a polish? Do you want some sparkle back in your life? Most of all, I want you to reconnect with how fabulous you already are, and begin the process of reclaiming yourself.
These are some of the topics we’ve explored so far in previous projects: hormones, shame and guilt, giving yourself permission, discovering what you really want, feeling like a hormonal crazy lady (!), loss of identity/purpose, sex, how thought creates our reality and gratitude!
We meet online on Tuesday evenings and the group is a safe, confidential, judgement-free place to share and learn and grow.
I’ve been a therapist and coach for over 13 years and have noticed recently that a lot of my female clients and friends seem to be going through similar things...... I think that when women come together to share and learn and grow, it is a truly powerful experience. This isn’t group therapy, although it’s super supportive, it’s a creative exploration that will hopefully leave you feeling inspired about the next chapter in your life.
The project lasts 7 weeks, so as well as the weekly online sessions, you will join a private FB group, where I post lots of resources and videos to support between sessions, plus you get an Oxytocin MP3 to get all the juicy love hormones flowing. Investment: £147
