A six week coaching opportunity for women in the life phase between motherhood and
cronehood (in their 50’s and 60’s).
I am inviting women who are:
Willing to share their experiences of how they negotiate this season of their lives
Keen to further explore ways to build on their life experience and wisdom
Enthusiastic about expressing their gifts and passion in the world
The research project runs from July to September 2013.
There are 6 coaching sessions available per participant
Each session is 90 minutes in length
Participants can choose to begin anytime from July onwards
The purpose with this research is twofold:
Firstly, to document how women reinvent themselves as they transition from their
life season in the motherhood phase to another way of being a woman in their post
A second purpose is for me as coach and researcher to facilitate a client’s journey
to a desired way of being relevant to this stage of her life.
The notion of the Triple Goddess as Maiden, Mother and Crone is reflected in the
seasons of spring, summer and winter respectively. Each of these phases or life seasons
has a rites of passage that shapes its impulse and associated expectations.
Many women, like myself, are no longer in the motherhood phase, yet we do not feel
that we are Crones. What we can feel is that we have something to offer and are exploring
ways to express this in the world. We can feel the call to integrate our knowledge
and wisdom, share our gifts, give back to the community, make a difference. Lara
Owen refers to this as the Maga* Life phase of a woman. It is the autumn season of
a woman’s life—a time to harvest life skills and explore new ways of being a woman.
Themes to be explored include: sexuality, spirituality, women’s rites of passage,
responding to the call to serve/giving back, inner feminine and inner masculine,
ways to express our newfound integration.
Maga* Lara Owen sees this Maga phase as being framed between menopause and retirement
or withdrawal from general busy-ness of life. This is the life season that features
the harvesting of a woman’s life skills and where her focus might shift from family
to community. (Lara Owen: Her Blood is Gold)
