Live Your "Sagessence!"
      Our culture idealizes youth and early life, yet consider that there are 630 million women specifically over the age of 50 on planet earth today. As women who are daughters, sisters, mothers, aunts, wives, teachers, business women, caregivers, and leaders, women have wisdom and valuable, diverse life experiences to offer. As women consider the incredible potential to consciously live "wisdom-in-action," of course the possibilities are even more so considering the male population over the age of 50.  

   You are urged to challenge society's view of older people. You are encouraged to honor this amazing time of life, claim your unique wisdom, and re-envision your future. You are inspirited to live your life with passion, purpose and creative intention, fully with tranformative "Sagessence."
Awaken the Sage

      We are called to identify and own our inner wisdom, and embrace our lives as truly extraordinary, unique, and valuable.

    We are called to re-envision our lives as sage leaders in the second half of life: imparting wise mentoring spirits, being living examples of personal authenticity, and making conscious, compassionate, vital life-affirming choices.

     We are called to celebrate our unique journey, honor who we are, how far we have come, and where we are going next!
