Reframing Retirement for Women

Fri 09 August 2024


Join women contemplating retirement and designing the next decades of flourishing.

This innovative digital solution gives you the opportunity to learn and practice ideas and tools contained in the NYT bestselling Designing Your Life, How to Build a Well-Lived, Joyful Life. You will do this in a community of women who have come together to collaborate on the design of their next chapter in life and potential “retirement”.

You will engage in a highly interactive virtual or in person workshop where we will work together to:


  • Explore our social narrative, especially around retirement, and identify the forces that have shaped our lives.
  • Discover and reframe our own dysfunctional beliefs, especially about retirement.
  • Dig into why we work(ed) and the purpose of our lives, identifying our drivers and motivators for the future.
  • Learn the latest research on flourishing and healthy aging and apply it to what you need today and in the future.
  • Assess your flourishing and energy levels and design improvements using the design thinking process and tools.
  • Frame and reframe areas where you have been stuck and engage in radical collaboration and ideation for new solutions. 
  • Learn how to prototype (or do small experiments to learn more) the parts of these lives that are most compelling to you.
  • Hone your decision-making process, tuning into the wisdom of multiple ways of knowing.
  • Create the life design community you need to support you on your life’s journey.
  • Use design tools to action plan for real change. 


What will you get?


  • Four (4) highly interactive Zoom sessions where you will learn and practice using the design thinking process, mindsets and tools.
  • A life design community ready to listen generatively, offer ideas, collaboration and support (details below).
  • Digital workbook of information and design tools unique to this program only.


What do you need to fully participate?


The virtual journey requires the use of technology, so before you sign up for the experience, be sure you have:

  • A laptop or desktop computer that will allow you to connect to Zoom with a microphone, camera, speaker, trackpad or mouse and keyboard. Note that we will also use Google sheets, which does not always work well on phone or ipad, so a laptop is necessary.
  • An internet connection of sufficient speed and stability to allow you to join a Zoom meeting with your video on.
