Who this workshop is for – middle-age to elder women who:

Seek to deepen their relationship with themselves and others

Are already flowing in the river of awareness, or at least taken a dip

Are open-minded and willing to explore inner landscapes

Are ready to step more deeply into their vital power as elders

Have  time to devote at least 3 hours per week to homework


Who this workshop is not for:

Women who are not ready or willing to be vulnerable

Women who find outer explorations more important than inner explorations

Women who know in advance that they will miss more than one class


No one tells the oceans

or the trees

or the mountains that they’re too old.

They talk of how powerful,

how grounded,

how awesome they are.

Imagine if we thought the same way about ourselves as we got older.

Maybe we’d realize how spectacular we are.

What other class participants have experienced:

I came to the Embracing Your Wisdom Years workshop with a desire to clarify my focus/purpose at this time in my life, and to look at issues around my self-care.

I came away with excitement to continue further explorations/contemplations about things that arose through work in the class; more commitment to self-care and more understanding of what gets in the way; and more ease around relationships with family and friends – less judgement, more love and appreciation!

Carolyn is a great facilitator, a clear and compassionate communicator, bringing insights from the rich experience of her life, with vulnerability and humor.  She shared many resources to deepen the work if desired – and great poetry!

If you are being called to do this kind of work, I wholeheartedly recommend this workshop! It is certainly worth the investment of time and energy.  ~Karen Good – age 72


I was sad when this class ended. That’s the biggest compliment I could give. I felt so well looked after by Carolyn, it was clear she put a lot of thought and love into each week, she gave us great material to work with, read us beautiful poems and allowed us space to explore. I had some deep insights into my purpose, and I loved getting to know the other wonderful women in the group. I would encourage anyone thinking about joining to just do it. You’ll be supported and challenged, and you will come away a different person from when you started.  ~Jaya


Carolyn creates a safe place for women to explore their worth and purpose in life moving forward.  She inspires people to share creating a strong group bond. The more time you spend with the material she offers each class the more you will benefit from the experience.  Empower your life and your and you communities will benefit!  ~Mary Cain
