Many refer to the over-50 phase of life as the third act. Once considered an unproductive period of life, it's now recognized as a natural part of the cycle of human development. It's enhanced when we approach it with a mindset of growth, learning and change, rather than as a state of decline.

You'll love this retreat because:

  • You know that you might have another whole lifetime of 25 years or so to build something else, to become even more of yourself, and shed the past.

  • You're excited about the 3rd act of your life as a time for discovery and learning

  • You want to be inspired about what's ahead

  • You're ready to explore, validate and release where you've been and become more of your authentic self 

  • You want to discover new pathways in a way that beckons you towards the future, rather than pushes you

  • You want to accept and embrace... more than ever before... who you are and the gifts you bring to the world

 

                                                                              

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


 

 

This retreat is being held in an area known by the indigeneous Mi'kmaq as Kespukwitk. For more than 10,000 years, ancestors of today’s Mi’kmaq lived off and from the land in sync with the rhythm of Mother Earth. As we gather on this land, we'll be reminded of the importance of fire for survival as well as for transformation. 
 We'll celebrate the gift of being in an an area which holds memories of native wisdom  
- As the November full moon wanes in the night sky, we'll participate in a letting-go ceremony over an open fire outside.. releasing the past and setting an intention for the future
- You can enjoy quiet time around a crackling fire in the main lodge (or in some of the accomodations) 
- You'll have fun roasting marshmallows and reflecting silently, allowing yourself to open to your soul's wisdom

**Please note: In honour of our indigeneous people, we will not appropriate any of their rituals.

Light the Fire of Midlife Transformation
Fan the Flames of Conscious Wisdom
It's not enough to light the fire of transformation. Transformation, like fire, needs oxygen to keep burning. We'll use the principles of Positive Intelligence   as the oxygen to keep the fires of transformation burning using: 
  • The 5 powerful gifts from the wisdom of your inner sage, learning how to seamlessly ensure they serve you well
  • 3 core components of positive mental fitness and how to easily integrate them into your life

  • Simple exercises to relieve stress and strengthen calm confidence

  • An assessment to identify your top saboteurs and weaken their power 

  • Easy and effective tools to tap into your innate joy and wisdom ensuring that you're pulled (not pushed) towards purpose and meaning

The Transformation
"I don't use the words life-changing lightly." So says, your facilitator, Sheila Kelly. Not one to "over promise and under deliver," Sheila finds using Positive Intelligence (PQ) with coaching clients accelerates transformation thus saving valuable time.  Clients use words like "amazing, eye-opening, and transformative" to describe their experience. Improved relationships, more inner calm, and increased productivity are just a few of the reported benefits. Not only have her clients experienced the impact of PQ, during her own training with PQ, Sheila heard seasoned coaches report profound impact of using the PQ operating system.
