Power Years Women’s Circle
Six Week Guided Reflection
Are you in a midlife transition period? Feeling like you might benefit from some self-reflection but also craving the support and community of women feeling the same way?
The Power Years Women’s Circle (PYWC) is for you.
The PYWC is:
- A six-week guided reflection
- Small, intimate circles (groups will be capped at six-eight participants)
- Each week you will receive a workbook of prompts and exercises on a specific topic
- At the end of the week, the circle will gather on Zoom for 60 minutes to share insights and encouragement
- The purpose of the group is accountability and community, knowing you are not doing this alone
We'll cover the following topics:
The power of values
In week one, we'll dig into what's important to us and where in our lives those things might be needing more attention so that we can feel more fulfilled.
The power of our thoughts and beliefs
In week two, we'll play around with noticing saboteur/inner critic voices and the beliefs that come out of those thoughts. Awareness of how we might sabotage ourselves allows us to make decisions in line with our values rather than our fears.
The power of self-compassion
In week three, we'll connect with our inner wisdom and self-compassion. Practicing self-compassion this week will help us navigate stress and change with more resilience.
The power of self-care
In week four, we'll pay attention to what energizes us, i.e., what relationships, activities, and environments are depleting and nourishing so that we can start creating boundaries and practices that feel good.
The power of experience
In week five, we'll take stock of the foundation we've already built and practice gratitude. We'll celebrate who we've been, and amplify the qualities we want to embody in the future.
The power of possibilities
In week six, we'll let ourselves dream about the future and what is possible and who we want to be in the second half of life.
Frequently Asked Questions
With everything in the world still changing rapidly and feeling so unsteady, I'm feeling called to provide offerings in bite-sized chunks. However, I still want us to have enough time to forge a connection, do some real work, and reflection.
This circle is for you if you feel called to invest in yourself and have the time and resources to do it. It's for women who are looking to connect with others who have the same desires.
I hope that you feel a deeper connection to yourself and others, more optimistic, more self-aware, more resilient, and more YOU. What you get out of this depends on what you put in. Making time to do the weekly inquiries and showing up for the calls increases the chances that this will be a positive and impactful experience for you.
What this circle is not:
- Group therapy or a support group. The circle is to provide accountability, connection, and a sense of possibility and promise.
- Group coaching
What people are saying
"When Sara asked if I would want to take part in the PYWC, I was not sure what to expect but was open to exploring the opportunity. From the first meeting, I found an incredible group of women that Sara had brought together to discuss how we can be more powerful and focused in our lives and careers. She put together thoughtful exercises for us to reflect on each week that helped me get and stay in touch with my “true self” and move forward in my journey for a richer and more fulfilling life. Following the reflection each week, I was fortunate to be able to discuss these ideas in a safe environment with caring, supportive, and creative women. Sara expertly facilitated our discussions, and I left each week feeling refreshed and excited about what is possible next.”

"I joined the PYWC because I was hoping to clarify which direction my work should take. The work I have devoted my life to suddenly disappeared due to the pandemic. After the shock and upset settled down, I decided to use this time to explore other passions that I just didn't have time or energy to devote to before. I had a spark for a new career path and decided to take this course to give myself time and space to really explore that career possibility.
I was surprised how both my personal and professional lives were affected by taking this course. I have a new appreciation for my own strengths to tackle significant issues. Another surprising benefit is that I have met some intriguing, powerful women that I look forward to continuing to connect with.
Sara created a safe space to explore my inner workings with others. I loved it and felt it was excellent value for the money and time spent."
Having just completed Sara’s Power Years Women’s Circle, I am excited and energized for my next chapter. Before taking the course, I was hoping to have a structured way to rethink my life choices and find a path to move forward. My expectations were more than met with thoughtful group discussions and exercises that challenged my unhelpful habits and thoughts.
I am newly committed to my personal growth, and have a better understanding of my saboteurs and strengths. I will revisit the exercises to gain even more self-wisdom. I also met very inspiring women and made new friends.
I would recommend Sara’s course to anyone looking for a safe, nurturing, and thought-provoking way of connecting to what matters most in life. The course was fun, energizing, and the highlight of my week!
